Blogger Awards

I have just discovered that I have been honoured to receive two awards from fellow bloggers! They are:
I am so pleased and surprised and happy that others appreciate my blogging - thank you so much Sandy and Bea!!  There are rules to receiving the awards...... say thank you (done) and share seven things about myself so here goes........ in no particular order!!

  1. I have always loved horses, they are the most beautiful wonderful animals.
  2. When I was a teenager I wanted to marry a man with a more unusual name - I got my wish!
  3. I dream about upping sticks and moving to some really remote place in the Scottish Highlands and living the simple life!
  4. I have a weird thing where when I buy something I have to choose the third one back (not food though.... that would make the shopping waaaaay too long!)!
  5. I love eating Christmas cake with Cheddar cheese!
  6. My big brother emigrated to Canada to marry his lovely wife Lorri...... I still can't quite forgive him!!
  7. I am a Christian and God plays an important part in my life.
I now have to pass the awards on to 15 bloggers that deserve it.  I have to confess that I recently trimmed my blogroll somewhat to reflect my current reading interests and I'm not sure that I have 30 on roll any more (is that a huge faux pas to admit in blog land?? Hope not!) I will do my best to list 15 that truly are great!

Outstanding and Versatile Blogger goes to:
I'm afraid that these eleven are my true favourites and I'm going to leave it there..... I hope that you take the time to link through to some of them and enjoy having a good read!  Have a lovely weekend!

  3. You are so sweet to think of us. I have enjoyed your blog so very much, especially for the wonderful montessori preschool ideas. I have incorporated some of them into our days.
