I am feeling incredibly blessed! My wonderful blogging friend Susan was having a celebration give-away on her blog and guess who was the lucky winner!!! This beautiful necklace that Susan has lovingly made arrived from the other side of the world this week. We are moving into spring weather here so I can't wait to wear it. Where I live this week is the annual "race round" where a week's worth of horse-racing events have become a major social event for our little city and the population of the town increases dramatically with a lot of people travelling a long way to join in the fun (and the betting). This is apparently the 112th "round". Anyway it is a pity that I don't go to these events (I don't enjoy big noisy crowds much) as the women really dress up and my new necklace would have been a very appropriate embellishment!!
And to add to my sense of abundance, I have been thrilled recently to receive some blogging awards from some lovely people who read my blogs. I have been delaying acknowledging them as they require me to then choose blogs to pass it on to and that is an agony of choice for me as I LOVE so many blogs! But here goes...
Karen and Carole have given me the Blogging Friends Forever Award, the rules are:
- Only five people allowed
- Four of them have to be dedicated followers of your blog and one has to be new and live in another part of the world.
- You have to link back to who gave you the award.
So my four dedicated blog followers (thanks so much guys!!) are: Viv, Carolann, Annie, Susan and my nomination of a blogger that is new to me and who lives in another part of the world - Gaby Lee in Germany.
Bethel , Danielle and Cait have given me this one - thanks a lot, it really means a lot to me.
The rules for the "I Love Your Blog" award are:
- The winner can put the logo on their blog.
- Link to the person you received your award from.
- Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
- Put links of those on yours.
- Leave a message on the blogs of the people you've nominated.
