Ooohhh an award!!

There is nothing quite like getting up on a dreary Monday morning, switching on your computer and discovering that one of your lovely blog friends has decided to give you an award!!

The gorgeous DJ over at Chez Aspie has given me this Circle of Friends Award. As always, there are rules attached so I have to write five things that I like to do and then pass this award on to ten friends....well, I've never been very good at rules so I'm going to pass this to all the lovely bloggers that feature on my side bar....you guys are great!!

Right, my five things

1. Spending time with Chris (I know....I know...where's the nearest bucket till you barf in it!! I can't help it......He's my husband and I do kinda like him!!)

2. Giving and getting cuddles - There is not much that a cuddle can't make a bit better! (even if it's only a teeny weeny bit)

3. Drawing and painting - I love the fact that hours can pass and I don't even notice!! (I also quite like making a mess so enjoy painting too!)

4. Laughing - There is nothing better than getting together with a group of friends and having a right old laugh! Tonic for the soul!

5. Reading - You sometimes have to read a few duff ones but when you find that one which captures your imagination and you can't put down....well, there is nothing quite like it!!

I could have added cooking, blogging, eating, drinking and a whole host of other things but I'm only allowed five....and since I've already broken the rules I feel I should at least stick to one bit!

A well deserved award! And thanks for nominating me via your sidebar.

And you're right - a laugh a day does keep the doc away!

Amanda said...

It's so refreshing to read that all your 'things' are nice, normal everyday things that you can regularly incorporate into your daily life, instead of hideously expensive or inaccessible things that are usually out of reach. And thanks for passing the baton. (Is it really five weeks since I've blogged? Blimey - where did January go?)

I loved your choices and 2,4 and 5 go for me as well. Thank you for passing this on to me - Den did as well. does that mean I have to do 10 choices?

Congratulations on your award, Carol, and thanks for passing it on to me! I'm honoured you consider me part of your circle of blogging friends. Have a great day and thanks again. Louise in Italy.

Fanks, hon! I've only bleeding well gone and done it and all :-)

Wow, an award!! Fankoo xxx I don't deserve one though, very bad blogger at the mo. I love you answers. I think mine will be all to predictable!!!

DJ Kirkby said...

I like spending time with your Chris too though obviously not in *that* way.

Carol said...

Louise - I'm honored to have you as one of my friends!!

Tam - Yay!! I shall pop over to have a nosey at your answers :-)

Claire - You are very welcome hon :-). I know..terrible...but you've not been forgotten!! Hehe, I think I might just be able to guess...would they have anything to do with a certain time of day?

DJ - That made me laugh so much I've just choked on my mouthfull of tea! (and I think that might have something to do with the fact that my Chris is just as cheeky as yours is!!)
