Blog awards

I have received a beautiful blogger award from Shell at My Handmade Haven, a beautiful blog.
Now I feel I need to confess that I've been slack in the past at accepting and passing on blog awards, so this post intends to put that right. There are some lovely blogs out there, inspiring, fun and interesting to read.

So firstly, thank you Shell for this award

... and thank you (belated) to Denise at A Smile A Day for this award in April

... and thank you (even more belated) to Jo at The Good Life for this award in March

... and now (embarrassingly belated) this lovely award from Little Garden Helpers in (cough) June 2009

So I've caught up with my thank you's, and would like to pass on the blog love to blogs that I enjoy reading and visiting. I read a varied selection of blogs from like minded mamas, crafty people, gardeners/allotment folk, permaculture blogs, etc. So if you are a regular visitor here and I visit your blog, which is most likely, then this beautiful blogger award is for you, and I'd send it back to those that sent it to me too as I love all your blogs.

I know I'm cheating, but it's hard to narrow it down to just a few blogs, and at the moment I have other things on my mind. Please bear with me if I am absent for a while.

Hmmm, things about me you may not know. Ok, here goes ...

I met the Queen when I was 7 years old, and gave her a flower arrangement that had to be checked by police for security reasons!

I once wanted to tickle Thom Yorke (of Radiohead) when he was next to me at Reading Festival - yes, I had been drinking!

I play the piano (well I did), classically trained and passed my grades, hope to return to it one day.

I love spinning wool, felting and anything using natural fibres (oh, you probably know that)

I'm a list person, always making lists and noting things down

I love books, and love to find old books in charity shops - especially good old gardening ones

I've always wanted to play the drums and have a drum kit myself (my brother had one instead of me and was taught by the fantastic Carl Palmer)

I think that's enough about me. See you all soon.


  1. Congrats on all of those blog awards!!! Don't blame you for not choosing ten of the best, I found it really hard when there are so many lovely ones out there! I like the story of your bunch of flowers being checked, I can imagine that must have seemed pretty rude to see a policeman rummaging through your flowers!!

  2. Lovely post xxx

    Hope everything is ok at your end, and you are enjoying your loves.

  3. Congrats on all your awards. Fab facts :-)

  4. Congrats on your awards - well deserved ;0)


Don't be shy, come and say hello. Your thoughts are always appreciated, I read them all and will endeavour to respond. Thank you x
