I have been given an award

Cheshire Wife has kindly given me an award for my creative blog name. I replied that in fact the name was given to me by friends, many years ago, and when I began my blog decided it was a good name to use. However, I accept with thanks.

The "rules" that go with this award are that I list six things that make me happy and I should pass it on to six fellow bloggers. So first my "happy list":

1. Long Sunday lunches with family and/or friends. And by long I mean that they go on well into early evening or beyond!

2. A day at home with Bob - just the two of us.

3. Spending time with my grandchildren.

4. Chatting on the telephone to my daughter who lives 100 miles away; also my son who lives 10,000 miles away.

5. Watching the wildlife in our garden, the birds and the frogs and newts in the pond.

6. My-time relaxation which includes sitting in the warm sunshine, reading, eating chocolate, listening to music and time in the kitchen - just peparing meals or baking.

And the award goes on to -

Gill at Gill - That British Woman for the variety of her posts, especially the recipes.

Jay at The Depp Effect for her ability to include Johnny Depp's name in so many of her posts.

Denise at An English Girl Rambles for her lovely photographs and poems.

Sandi at Holding Patterns for her wonderfully creative writing.

Fern at Ferns Lakeland, again for photographs, particularly of some stunning views of the Lake District.

Rosiero at Alcoholic Daze for being able to remain positive in extremely difficult circumstances.

I do hope they will accept the award even if lack of time means they are unable to pass it on immediately.

Anne, thank you so much. It was your name that made me wander by, but it was your thoughtful way with life that keeps me coming back. I accept with thanks...
glad you liked the story.

Thank you so much. I appreciate your support very much. I shall pass the award on.

Jay said...

Anne - thank you! I do indeed accept the award! I am a Kreative Blogger! Yay!!

I may hang onto it for a day or two, busy couple of days coming up and there is ABC Wednesday to do, which always takes me a while, but I appreciate it very much. I'm honoured. :)

Your children live so far away!! I'm fortunate right now, because one of my sons lives literally five or ten minutes from here, and the other lives an hour and a half away, and really doesn't mind the drive at all. I dread the day one of them decides to move - or OH finally persuades me to emigrate. How do you cope?

Congratulations on this lovely award Anne. You deserve it in every way. Thank you so very much, you are a love to pass this on to me and I really do appreciate it.
