Cherry on the Top!

The very lovely and talented Karen has given me this award. Karen is half of the team who organise Eclectic Keepsakes crops in Marks Tey, near Colchester. It is an absolutely brilliant way to spend one Saturday a month and I am so thrilled that she has chosen my blog as a recipient. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

So, without further ado, I need to check the rules to accepting the award and make sure I am following them.
1. Thank the person giving you the award. Check.

2. Place the award on blog.


3. List three things about yourself.

  • I am the messiest, disorganised person at home, yet at work my desk is perfectly tidy and I keep to a strict plan of jobs that need doing and in which order they need doing

  • I do not have a sense of smell

  • I once danced on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London and although it is many, many years ago now, I still like to bring it up in conversation whenever I can


4. Post a photo that you love

This was taken on our last family holiday together in Cyprus. We were messing about one evening and trying to take a group shot by our son holding the camera in front of us. There were many attempts to get all four of us in, and only one shot that was successful! Check.
5. Tag five people to pass it onto to keep it going.

So, as far as I am aware the following people have not already received this award and I am now passing it onto Sian who has a fantastic style of writing and great sense of humour, Mel who is not afraid to suffer for the cause of her blog. Who else would lay on a pavement in the rain to get a photo just because Shimelle told her to, or take photos standing in line at the carvery or indeed, take a photo of the public toilet in Italy? Rinda who is a true artist in every sense of the word. She is not afraid to experiment, and is happy to share her vast amount of knowledge, Amy , who shares with us the humourous comments and experiences of her family and is sensibly noting them all for posterity in her layouts. How she manages to blog so frequently in the midst of her building work is a mystery to me! Last but not least to Robyn. Robyn's was one of the first blogs that I started following when I started scrapbooking. I feel as if I know her little family who live in Brooklyn. She manages to share good times and bad, is an amazing cook, how she is so slim and trim I do not understand when she is always sharing her baking photos with us.

Thanks again!

Oh, thank you Deb! Very much appreciated :) I will be thinking about this one over the weekend - I don't think I've ever done anything as exciting or glamorous as dancing on stage though, would love to know more about that one x

Sian said...

I've just seen the Horsey comment! lol. He needs a new hat. The old one won't fit anymore.

Amy said...

Yes more information on the stage performance please!

Now, as for the no smell .. I thought my dear Engineer was the only person on the planet with such an affliction! He has never been able to smell - have you? He loves hot spicy food, he can determine sweet, sour, salty etc but cannot detect flavour. Such a pity he has never smelt the first rain on a hot footpath ... at least changing nappies was never a problem for him!

Thanks for the award Deb - it is always a pleasure to visit your part of blogland. I find my blogging and scrapping a great way to disengage from all of the chaos around me - PLUS - it is great fun! :-)

Aw, thanks hun xx It's worth all the suffering lol!

I've danced at the Royal Albert Hall too, didn't know we had that in common! :-)

Dave said...

Deb! You have to tell us more about the sense of smell! I've heard its agonizing to LOSE the sense of smell..but I suppose if you never had one, it would not be so bad. Did you lose it, or just never have it?

Thanks so much for saying such sweet things about me. ;) I feel like I know you too!

Denise said...
