Oooohhh an Award

I am thrilled....I have been given this 'Kreative Blogger' award (It's at the bottom of the post because I wanted to plug Sue's book) by the lovely Sue Guiney. She is a wonderful author so it means a lot that someone so talented has passed this award to me (I am now grinning like an eejit). If you have not read her book, Tangled Roots, then I suggest you go out and buy it immediately....I promise you will not be dissapointed!!.

Right, the rules say that I now have to list 7 things that I love (god, this is surprisingly difficult)

  • Friends and Family - Where would we be without them eh!!
  • Eating and Drinking - I think perhaps I love this a bit too much which is why I am now trying to lose some weight!!
  • Drawing - When I'm working on a picture it's like everything else just fades into the background. (I can even forget to eat!!!)
  • Reading - There is nothing quite like being catapulted into someone else's world and then being captivated by their story.
  • Music - I adore my music and there is always something playing in the house.
  • Blogging - I think it's amazing....without it I would never have got to know you lot!!
  • Exploring - I love visiting new places and meeting new people.
So there you have it.

I now have to pass this to 7 other creative bloggers (and I thought choosing 7 things I love was hard). Ok, I would like to pass this to Absolute Vanilla...(and Atyllah), The Accidental Fan, French Fancy, On a Quirky Quest with Lady Fi, Lane's Write, Country Lite and Querty Queen.

Sue - It's actually our wedding anniversary today but Chris is not feeling too good so it looks like we won't be doing much celebrating tonight. I was feeling a bit low about it this morning.....your award has really cheered me up. Thank you :-)

Congratulations on the award and Happy Anniversary. Why was your husband missing from the list of things that you love?

Carol and Chris said...

Sue - I know what you mean....I've just recovered from the dreaded lurgy...I'm just hoping that I've not passed it on to Chris!!

Milla - Awwww, thanks hon *hugs*

French Fancy said...

Happy Anniversary c&C - shame Chris is out of sorts - hope he feels better soon.

thanks for the award - apart from drawing, you've listed my almost favourite things so I'll have to scratch my head a bit to come up with some others

Nothing makes me forget to eat - I really love my food - as my hips can prove. Well done on sticking to your eating plan - I hate the word *diet* - it's so limiting


Carol and Chris said...

Cheshire Wife - You sneaked in there!! He was well and truly included in the friends and family. He knows how much I love him :-)

French Fancy - Thanks hon. I've plied him with Cold and Flu tablets and he's starting to perk up a bit. He is now talking about cooking me dinner :-)

Hahaha, that's obviously why we get on so well!! Feel free to use the same ones :-)

Nope, I'm most definately not on a diet....I'm just watching what I eat!! The minute I say diet I just want to eat copious amounts of chocolate!!

JJ Beattie said...

Happy anniversary you guys. Hope the big man is feeling better soon. JJx

Carol and Chris said...

JJ - Thanks hon. He's getting there...the cold and flu are definately helping and I've just fed him a huge bowl of home made vegetable soup so hopefully that will help too :-)

We're currently speaking to Moon on the's her son's birthday today so there is much hilarity as we are trying to work out what on earth she is on about!!
