Catching up

Having been "out of the loop" a bit lately I have neglected to let you know that I have been given a chicken by Ann at Retired and Crazy which I am to share with five others! Now Ann passed this to me on 26 April when I was a bit low in spirits, which was really thoughtful of her and is very remiss of me not to have mentioned it sooner. I hadn't forgotten, it's just that with one thing and another (the computer playing up and then just being too busy to concentrate on blog world) time has passed and here we are in the 2nd week in June! (we'll be buying Christmas cards next!).

So I am dishing up this chicken and would like to share it with:

Jay at the Depp Effect because she will soon have another mouth to feed in the shape of Sid the greyhound.

Maggie at Nuts in May. Maggie has been having a traumatic time dealing with unwanted visitors in her roof.

Denise at An English Girl Rambles because she often goes out for the day and it could be useful in packed lunches.

Karen at the Rubbish Diet because she wouldn't need to cook it and so save on fuel

Winifred at Stop Procrastinating and Just do it so that she won't need to worry about cooking it either.

I am also honoured to have been chosen to receive this award from Joo at Daily Haiku. I have only recently discovered this blog and it is a delight. I recommend you pay Joo's blog a visit - you won't regret it.

The rules for sharing this award are different than other awards because instead of just passing it on to just anyone, you are supposed to pass it on to blogs you've recently discovered.

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. You can also make a comment about the person who gave the award to you by asking your readers to stop by their blog, pay them a visit, leave a comment, or even 'follow' their blog if they feel led to.

2) Pass the award on to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Contact these bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award. Just go to their site and leave a comment to one of their posts telling them you have an award for them and to please come by your blog to get it. Just a little note: You pick the number of blogs to pass the award to, just give it to those you have recently discovered.

So I am passing this to:

Gilly at Winds of Change - Gilly hosts a lovely blog well worth a visit.

Arija who shares wonderful photographs on her blog.

Brenda at It's a Beautiful Life who always has something uplifting to share.

My thanks again for these awards and to anyone and everyone who visits my blog and leaves a comment.

Congratulations on your awards. I would like some more hours in the day to help me with my catching up and I am sure that you would too!

Anne -- You made my day a beauty! Thanks so much for the beautiful award and your lovely comments about my site.

I'm always glad our worlds have crossed, because when the toast's a bit dry, there's nothing like a spoonfulful of strawberry jam... and YOU!

Arija said...

How very kind of you Anne. I am truly honoured by your award. It may take me some little time too to pass it on, did I hear you mention cards? It may turn ut to be closet to Easter than Christmas LOL.

Denise said...

Thank you Anne, I so appreciate this award. Don't feel bad about being behind. I am too so please don't be surprised if it takes me a while to share this award. I know what you mean about being a bit blue. Since my sister passed away I have felt the same way, and I have a few awards to recognize that people gave me ages ago. You've reminded me that I need to get cracking on that. Thanks again. Denise x

Congratulations sweetie Anne!
You surely deserve these awards! Your blog is full of beautiful stories, great pictures and joy!
God bless you

Jay said...

Oh, how kind of you Anne! Sid will be pleased! LOL!

Congratulations on your awards! It might take me a while to pass them on, too. I keep meaning to make a page for the awards I get but I haven't got around to it yet.

It's lovely to get another though - I always feel honoured when someone thinks of me and my blog. :)

Gilly said...

Anne, thank you so much for this award - I feel very honoured!

The only trouble is - how do I get this picture onto my blog??? I know bhow to get links on!

Winifred said...

Thank you for this Anne, it's very kind of you.

You're right I won't be cooking the chickens. Not because I'll put it off but because I don't eat meat. Anyway, how could I eat these chooks?

Hope you're feeling better soon. Take care.


Hi Anne - thank you so much. You've cheered me up no end, especially since I've not been able to bring myself to buying a roast chicken since we've got our own brood.

Thank you, I will look after it and share it around with some lovely people. :-D xxxxx

I am really sorry that I didn't respond to this invitation immediately! Blame it on my back pain & the roof alterations and the pace of life. Whatever, I am sorry! Really honoured!
