Sheila nominated me for this award a few days ago, but I had one or two other urgent things that got in the way at the time!!!!! I am always thrilled when someone nomintes me for an award and in someways I'm also a bit puzzled. Why you ask? Well all I do is blog about my life and things I enjoy doing. When we blog it all appears to be quite selfish because we write about us, me, my etc. Yet we all enjoy reading other peoples 'us, me, my' stories too. Funny really. Anyway many thanks Sheila I am honoured. Now to pass this on, quick run for cover!!! Well there are a number of blogs I read that have asked not to be included in awards, which I respect, BUT!!!!! I will still nominate you anyway as I so enjoy reading your 'us, me, my' stories they inspire me! So please accept the award, but I do understand that you may not pass it on! Line up:- Here we go:-
The Lady and the Chocolate Chocolate :You want me lady don’t you? You want me! YOU WANT ME! Lady : No Chocolate, I do not want you, for after the initial pleasure there is sickness and there is guilt! Chocolate:That, lady is the reason for my existence. Are you to deny me the reason for my existence? Lady:No, chocolate. I would not do that. Chocolate:Thank you
(A munching sound is heard, followed by a sigh of pleasure)
I am a stay at home mum, due to a daughter with Neurological Diversity! I am too busy to get bored and how people fit in work I'll never know! I craft, sewing, knitting and anything else that takes my fancy. I garden and have dug up part of my garden for veg patches! I now have two greenhouses both heated! Plus a new jungle bed which I started 2007! This has really captured my imagination to the extent that I now own 30 Brugmansia Bushes/Trees and many other beautiful Exotic Plants, so join me and see what mischief I get up to whilst home alone!!!
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick the flowers in other people's gardens And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat And eat three pounds of sausages at a go Or only bread and pickle for a week And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry And pay our rent and not swear in the street And set a good example for the children. We must have friends to dinner and read the papers. But maybe I ought to practice a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple. by Jenny Joseph found here http://www.tonya.me.uk/fun/warning.asp
