Well I don't know what to say! Two (yes people, 2!) have nominated me for a "nice matters" award. I'm sure most people who know me would be gobsmacked that the word "nice" has been applied to me in any context, but I'm thrilled to receive it. Thank you so much to Rachel at milesawayinfrance and dottycookie for passing on to me.
The last award I received was in my last year at high school and was the prestigious "skiving off games" award - I kid you not! Many a happy hour was spent sitting on the toilet cistern in the changing rooms just so we didn't have to brave the all weather hockey pitch in temperatures of minus 10 wearing nothing but the shortest gym skirt!
The award was started by Bella Enchanted for the following reasons : "to those that are just nice people, good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others and are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world"
I now have to nominate others who I think deserve such an award and we all know how difficult that is, but here goes, in no particular order ;
Clare at Elfie and Me who always spends the time to email responses to any comment left
Tracy at cupcakes at home who writes the most glorious blog about her big move "up North"
Louise at lulu lolly legs who makes the most gorgeous things and is lovely into the bargain
Sophie at Sophie Honeysuckle's English decor her blog is pure eye candy and doesn't make me at all envious!
Catherine at Molly cupcakes who leaves the loveliest comments and regales us with tales of her busy life
Kim at Ragged Roses who makes the most amazing things
Marie at Marie Chantal Handmade Skincare who has bravely started a new business but always makes time to leave words of encouragement for others
Suzie of Suzie Sews for her honesty and unbelievable maternal skills
There are so many more I could add.....................
I'll leave you with a little garden picture, a fab Verbena Bonariensis (think that's right!) I planted this summer. It's really come up trumps!
