Beautiful Blogger Award

I've been nominated for an award!




I am so pleased to see that I have been nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award by http://thoushaltnotcovet.net  I haven't been nominated for this award before. When I first started my blog, all the way back in January lol I did get 5 nominations for the Leibster Award but it was for blogs with under 200 followers and by the time I was nominated and was going to do the tasks involved in it I was at over 200 followers, and I also didn't know which nomination to use, so naughty me didn't do it. But thank you for nominating me for this award, I am definitely going to do this one.


There are some rules for accepting the award…

   1)  Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post.
   2)  Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
   3)  Tell us 7 things about yourself.
   4)  Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.

7 things about me

  1. I emigrated to America in 1999 and stayed there until 2009, when I moved back home to England.
  2. I have a very nasty spinal disease that means I am in severe pain 24 hours a day.
  3. I have two amazing children of whom I could not be more proud, Steven who is 29 and Suzanne who is 28.
  4. I have a degree in English and History, Social Work diplomas, a Massage Therapist License, but only for Texas, and I became a Reiki Master back in 2006. 
  5. I have a lovely boyfriend, who is kind, generous and loving, and everyone who meets him loves him, he is the complete opposite of my ex husband!
  6. I believe in karma and therefore try to not think badly of anyone or wish bad things to happen to anyone, because karma is a product of our thoughts as much as our actions.
  7. I have a tattoo. It is on my rear hip and is a red peace heart with my children's initials either side. I didn't get it until I was 50, my rite of passage into middle age :)

These are my 7 nominated blogs, I hope you will check them out as they are all amazingly good.

  1. First off a HUGE congrats on your award - very very much deserved- you've put so much work into it and a lot of you and who you shines though which makes it s joy to read!
    I'm in awe of your mega impressive 200 followers!! I have just 37! I should really try and find places to show it too!
    I loved reading your 7 facts, I am sorry to read about your spinal problem, I too have an ongoing illness and its not nice- not knowing how your day will be or what you can do- but your blog us a total credit to you... Oh and I live the tatt!!

    Lastly I want to thank you enormously for nominating me for this award- I'm over the moon that you chose me from the hundreds you could have as one if the seven.
    As you may see its 4am and I have yet to sleep so I'm going to try now, but I just wanted to thank you so so much for the nomination!!

    1. Thank you for all the lovely comments! And you are very welcome for the nomination. I didn't want to choose blogs I never really read or people I had no knowledge of, so I chose blogs written by people who I think seem really lovely from any interaction I have had with them. Plus I had to really like their blogs too. I spent quite a while checking blogs and thinking about it, I'm sure some people just pick anyone but I didn't want to do that, or the award becomes worthless. Glad you are happy I nominated you Claire. xx

  19. Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm
    having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I read every single one and reply as often as possible. If you are going to follow me my preferred option would be through GFC, but of course I am very happy to be followed which ever way you prefer. Again thank you for commenting, it makes me so happy to see I have new comments.
