Here is the deal - reveal 7 things that your readers may not know about you (and would like to know, or find interesting) and then pass the award onto 10 -15 blogs that you have recently discovered.
I have to say, I have found this very difficult and after much thinking, revising and rewritting I came up with these:

1. I have never lived anywhere longer than 5 years. So far, I've racked up 23 different address / homes. For some reason I feel compelled to tell people this, as if it may explain something salient about my character. But mostly, I say it because I can hardly believe it myself. I feel somewhat nomadic.

3. I adore houses that have two staircases - especially if the second one is kind of hidden away and secret. It hinges around the whole 'surprise' element of being able to suddenly appear upstairs (by virtue of using the secondary stair). I knew a girl who lived in such a house - it seemed like a truly magical place because of it.

5. I've had two of my architectural drawings / paintings in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London and was part of the Architect's Journal '40 under 40' exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

7. The last thing that made me cry was watching Disney's version of Rapunzel (Tangled) that I watched with my sons on Mother's Day (29th May here in France).
