Shine On Award

Shine on Award

What a lovely surprise this morning to wake up and discover that the amazing Novice Gardener has awarded me the Shine On Award for my blog. Could there be a better way to get through hump-day?! It is so nice to receive recognition from fellow bloggers for the love we put into our posts. Every time I create a post I hope that someone will try my recipe, like my photos and enjoy my musings. Receiving this is recognition that people do enjoy my contribution to the crowded world of blogging and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It is with extreme gratitude and pleasure that I thank  The Novice Gardener for my award and accept my “Shine On Award”.

The rules of the award are as follows:

  1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Acknowledge the nominating blogger on your blog and provide a link back to their blog.
  3. Share seven random and interesting things about yourself.
  4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the Shine On Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post and notify them on their blogs.

Shine On Award – seven random facts about me

  1. I have clavicaphobia – it is the irrational, and believe me I know it is irrational, fear of seeing or touching collar bones. I am even eeked out thinking about them to type this…
  2. I am allergic to ginger.
  3. I like every food expect for squash. I will eat them, but I don’t enjoy them.
  4. My favourite flavour pairings to accompany chocolate is mint and coconut, not together though I am sure it would be tasty.
  5. My comfort food is salmon mornay. When I was little and unwell my Mother would make this for me and now everytime I am sick the only thing that will make me feel better is salmon mornay – with the exception of chicken soup.
  6. On separate occasions I have broken both my elbows.
  7. I have a labradoodle called Bronte who is my pseudo child. She is about 30KG, she acts like a cat and she thinks she is a human. I love her. She is black, has curly hair that blows in the wind and a ginger beard.
