here. I am to pass it on to five other bloggers and to tell you five things that I enjoy doing.
I could pass it back to Fly...but that would be a bit silly...because she would then feel like she had to pass it back again to me...and so on...and we could spend days doing this! What I'm really saying is that I enjoy her blog immensely, and I appreciate her comments,encouragement and thoughtfulness...so thank you!
Five things I like doing:
1. Talking with my daughter and grandson on Skype. What would we do without the webcam? It's enabled me to watch him grow and make progress, something I would miss completely if it wasn't for this wonderful invention.
2.Waking up in the morning to the sounds of chickens, sheep, cows, donkeys and goats. It's much noisier than the sound of traffic...but so much more enjoyable!
3. Spending time with my husband which is rare these days, but appreciated all the more because of it.
4.Reading a good book with a large bar of Cadbury's chocolate...also rare because I can't get Cadbury's chocolate here.
5. Blogging...of course...because it has opened up a whole new world for me. It has given me the opportunity to share my joy, my anguish, frustrations, sadness..and so many more emotions, with people I have come to think of as friends. People who accept the bad and the good about me, and are always ready with kind words and encouragement.
Choosing just 5 people to pass on this award to, is quite difficult. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my blog...so if you're not on my list, please don't be offended... just consider yourself part of my Circle of Friends.
Firstly, Mr H at Subsistence Pattern here. I'm being a bit naughty here because Mr H doesn't really accept awards. Our first conversation was a little heated because we disagreed about awards, but we thankfully ended up as friends. Sorry Mr H...you don't have to accept the award but you need to know that I love your blog and your comments on mine.
Secondly, Heiko at Path to Self Sufficiency here. Another wonderful blog. Both Heiko and Mr H live lives of self-sufficiency in totally different environments. So interesting and lots of good advice.
Thirdly, Maggie May at Nuts in May here. Someone who's courage I admire tremendously, and who still finds time to visit my blog. You are always in my thoughts Maggie.
My fourth and fifth are are slightly different. Two people who follow my blog, but don't have blogs of their own. I wish they did have their own blogs, because they have so much that's worth sharing...maybe this award will encourage them to start.
Ann...a blog follower and loyal friend. We've never physically met, but we have been internet friends for a couple of years and we talk on the telephone sometimes and email each other every day. Always there for me during the good times and the bad. Always with a kind word or good advice. Love you lots xxx
Finally, my daughter Stella, who follows my blog, but hasn't worked out how to make comments! I am immensely proud of her and I love her more than words can say.
