Reader Appreciation Award

I’ve been nominated by the lovely Michael over at My Glass House for The Reader Appreciation Award πŸ™‚

I love receiving all these awards, it’s so nice to be thought of, to know that people enjoy what I have to say *grins stupidly* lol

So thank you Michael, I will be playing by the rules with this one as I really like the questions πŸ™‚


What is my favourite colour?
It’s a toss up between red and purple lol. I wear a lot of red, and love writing with purple ink.

What is my favourite animal?
Hmmmm, I love cats and dogs, oh and foxes.

What is my favourite non-alcoholic beverage?
A Costa Latte….mmmmmm.

Facebook or Twitter?
FaceBook, I’m not on Twitter, yet. Although I’m getting really peeved by all the crappy things FaceBook are getting up to recently 😦

Favourite pattern?
Anything black and white, but I’m a bit partial to hearts πŸ™‚

Do you prefer getting or giving presents?
Giving, definitely!

Favourite number?
Can’t decide between 15 (my birthday, hubbys birthday and my eldest sons birthday) or 5 (the month I was born and the number of people in my family).

Favorite day of the week?
Probably Sundays as I get to lay in and snuggle with hubby lol.

Favourite flower?
White roses, no contest. But I love the smell of Lavender.

What is my passion?
Hmmmm, that’s tricky, I’m passionate about a lot of things….my family, love, helping and caring about other people, volunteering, animals….but, come on, you know the real answer don’t you? WRITING πŸ™‚

I’m going to nominate the following Bloggers for this award. You know the rules guys, answer the questions and pass it on….nominate as many fellow Bloggers as you like, make someone smile today πŸ™‚ I know some of you have already had this award, so my apologies…. Is there such a thing as too many? Lol

I still get a buzz from each and every one I receive…..and I know I’m rule breaking…..

But….there always seems to be a but doesn’t there lol….. As I’ve had so many awards recently (and I’m not complaining!) as you can see, I’ve had to do them all in one post. I hate to have you waiting weeks for me to acknowledge the award, that’s just not fair now is it 😦

The rules are all slightly similar for these things, and as I’ve recently given you all so much boring information about myself, I’ll pass on listing things about me, i’d probably end up duplicating something anyway lol.

Sooooo, in honour of all the awards I’ve received and to celebrate my 200th follower (I am feeling blessed) and the 11,000+ views on my 214 posts, i have created my own little awards thingy lol. It’s nothing special, just a photo of a piece of artwork i created for my daughter. And to show my appreciation to all my followers, it is my gift to all of you! Because you are all so wonderful, and I really haven’t got a clue how else to show my thanks, and the sheer joy I feel at having you all as part of my Blogging life πŸ™‚ You guys keep me going, do you know that πŸ™‚

Thank you to everyone who has made my first 6 months of blogging the great experience it has been. I feel so at home here and have made some fantastic Bloggy friends πŸ™‚ I have thoroughly loved every minute of it, and you guys, the ones who comment, and read my ramblings, are what makes it all worth while πŸ™‚

So, please feel free to consider that, if you’re reading this and you’re a follower (or I follow you) you have been nominated for any of the awards above or accept my Very Special Blogger Award with much love from me πŸ™‚ Take your pick!

And now, I think it’s time (and long overdue actually) for me to do a BlogRoll on my side bar. To acknowledge the fantastic bloggers who have supported me along my journey πŸ™‚ please take a moment to visit their blogs, you won’t be disappointed πŸ™‚

So, as we’re in party mood, and you’re all invited, tell me, What tipple (alcoholic beverage) will you be arriving at my front door with?

I’m Feeling All Appreciated :)

Oh my πŸ™‚ I am feeling pretty chuffed. The lovely CB Wentworth has nominated me for the Reader Appreciation award, and said some lovely comments about my blog. Thank you so much honey πŸ™‚

I love this community so goddam much!

In order to accept this award I need to do the following:

List something you’ve been up to lately
Nominate 6 other blogs

Ok, that’s pretty simple lol….something I’ve been up to lately? Hmmmm….*thinks* ok, harder than I thought, you guys know everything anyway! Lol

Ahhhhh, I have it! πŸ™‚

Dieting *groan* and very unsuccessfully I might add lol. I mean, how can you write and diet? The connection between tapping away at the Netbook and chocolate seems soooo right, don’t you think? All those coffee shops, lattes, cake, muffins…..mmmmmm πŸ™‚

The idea of doing my editing whilst munching on carrot sticks is just not doing it for me!

So there, now you have it, I’ve said it, I’m supposedly on a bloody diet, but, it’s not going well lol. I am a member of a gym but I’m just far too busy to go (so I tell myself) πŸ˜‰

So now for the nominees. This is getting so hard, making sure I don’t nominate someone who has already had the award lol. I’ve had a few new followers recently, so I’m going to nominate my new readers, show my appreciation πŸ™‚

This post got me thinking….. What’s your favourite writing snack? The thing you love to nibble on whilst you’re tapping away on those keys? And the first person to say carrot sticks will also get a filthy look πŸ˜‰ lol. The picture above is of one on my favourites….little cheesy biscuits *dribbles* lol
