It's a murky & grey ol' day out today. It's cold enough to switch off the fridge & keep the contents in the garden and the wind's doing its best to blow all our precious Magnolia blooms halfway across town.
But a ray of light in the shape of one of my fav'
stalkers bloggers, Kevin AKA Nitty Gritty Dirtman has sent me this formidable Sunshine Award to brighten my day. Thank you.
Now can I make it quite clear that I am NOT paying Kev huge amounts for bestowing me all these awards of late, nor am I threatening him in any way, shape or form to swim across the pond to De-Tidy his beautiful garden if he doesn't send me some kind of praise on a weekly basis, nor have I got the names & addresses of all his family, friends & work colleagues to share explicit images of him with his bagpipes.
If however you are seeking a more intellectual, amusing, inspirational & mature blog to follow then please do check out Kevin (you're wasting your time here).
As per, there are rules with these awards, so here goes ....
- Include the logo in your post. (Sorted)
- Link back to the person who nominated you. (Done)
- Answer the following 10 questions about yourself. (Prepare to be bored again)
- Nominate 10 – 12 other bloggers and link them to the Sunshine Award post in their comments section. (Will do)
1.What is your favorite colour?
Depends if I'm wearing it, making a card out of it or planting it .... please don't make me choose.
2. What is your favorite animal?
I'm a cat lover.
3.What is your favorite number?
4, no idea why.
4.What is your favorite non-alcholic drink?
Tea, el-cheapie stuff
5.Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
Hmmm ..... Facebook's ok I guess, am on Twitter but can't get my head round all the '#' and '@'
6.What is your passion?
Was going to say gardening, then Mr TG walked in the room ..... Mr TG of course, without a second thought (gardening & making cards but don't tell)
7.Do you prefer getting or giving presents?
Receiving presents or cards from my children they've either bought or made themselves, otherwise I love the thrill of choosing gifts
8.What is your favorite pattern?
Stripes (usually blue & white) .... (think I was a sailor in a previous life)
9.What is your favorite day of the week?
Friday (so much 'hope' rests on a Friday)
10.What is your favorite flower?
I can't & won't choose .... there .... Rule Breaker.
My nominations for this award are based on those who always manage to bring a wry smile to my chops. They're both fellow gardeners & card-makers with a sense of humour. I hope they will accept ..... if not I know people with knuckles & rottweilers.
(There you go, not quite 10 or 12, but the sun's just come out, gotta switch the fridge back on & mow some lawns)
