Blogger Awards!!!

So I'm pretty new to this whole blogging thing. Sure I've written quite a few posts, but until recently I have never really promoted it, or worried too much about getting my blog "out there".

As I don't have many followers, the comments that I have been getting have been really nice and it is lovely to know that people actually read and value something I have written.

So when I received a comment from saying that they had nominated me for both the following blogger awards it really made my day! (huge thanks )


These awards are a great way to show a bit of blog love and appreciation.

There are some rules for this nomination, they are as follows:

1. Display the logos of the awards on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State seven things about yourself.
4. Nominate fifteen other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify these bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirement.

So here's seven things about me:

  1. I am a mum to 3 great kids. My boys are 7 and 5 and our little girl is almost 1
  2. I am married to my high school sweet heart
  3. My favourite flowers are sunflowers, gerberas and frangipanis
  4. My first proper job was working in a bakery. I was there for 7 years!
  5. I got chicken pox for the first time at the age of 20
  6. I HATE washing dishes (therefore I LOVE my dishwasher!)
  7. I like winter much more than summer, but like spring and autumn equally.
Now for my nominations......Hmmmm...tough job........

1.  - This is such a pretty and very well colour-co-ordinated blog! Jasmine was one of my best friends in primary school, and through the wonders of this little thing called the "Internet" we were able to catch up again and keep in contact all these (not too many!!!) years later!

2. Kylie is a fellow Owl lover! I have been following her on instagram for a while now, and I only recently discovered her lovely blog. (which is now one of my favs)
