Yet another award: Very Inspiring… Liebster, Makes My Heart Smile, Blog of the Year! Yes all of them…

Sage Doyle has nominated me again for yet another award – the Very Inspiring Blogger. A great big thank you again to Sage for this! 🙂 http://sagedoyle.wordpress.com

I have added it to the sidebar with the other awards and now I really must start nominating some of my awards to other people…

So the Liebster Award is for young blogs – usually of less than 200 followers but I’ve stretched this a bit  –  and requires you to ask your nominees to answer some questions and I have now come up with those.. so here are the questions, and I’ve tried not to be too obvious but:

  1.  what is your first memory?
  2. what was your most embarrassing moment?
  3. as a teenager who was your role model?
  4. which book do you wish you had written?
  5. why?
  6. are there multiple realities? or just the one that we all experience the same?
  7. where [location] was your first kiss?
  8. which island would you most like to live on?
  9. when writing a thank you letter do you type or use pen and notepaper?
  10. paint or wallpaper in your bedroom?
  11. favourite nightwear?

So my nominees for this Liebster award are:

The Very Inspiring Award asks you to state 7 things about yourself that are different and Sage actually inspired me here as to what to write. so here they are:

7 things about my wardrobe:

  1. I used to wear hotpants when I was 16.
  2. I was a hippy with bare feet when I was 17.
  3. I used to have my eyes outlined as per Cleopatra with heavy balck eyeliner and triangles at the end inset with green or blue eyeshadow
  4. I wore very long beaded earrings, even with feathers on them in my hippy phase
  5. At uni I was the first person they had seen in a long skirt – ankle length
  6. I wore tights of many colours with these skirts – yellow, lime green, blue etc
  7. I dyed my hair when it got too grey all sort of shades from deep burgundy, to pink streaks in my fringe- that was a disaster they were too pink – to blonde to brown and…..

Awards: I am so happy…

I have been awarded 4 new awards and I am really very happy indeed… I have now worked out also how to put them onto my blog in the Sidebar so that they can be seen.

They were all awarded to me by the lovely SageDoyle! 🙂 Do go read some of her poetry – it is really thought provoking and can be very moving indeed.

The rules say that I must start nominating other people for these awards in return and I will, but one at a time, so look out bloggers for my nominations… it might be you being awarded…

In the meantime, here are some more snow photos for you to ponder on… we have lights at night-time in both front and back. The first 2 photos are of the back garden, and the second two of our front garden.
