Oh my :o)

Good morning!

I had a lovely surprise this morning when I read my emails, Patty Pan at Tarragon & Thyme has honoured me with a 'Sunshine' award.  Thank you so much Patty Pan, I really appreciate it :o))

As a recipient I have to thank the person who has nominated me... See above.

Answer the following questions about my favourite things:

1.  My favourite animal.  That's easy cats, large or small.  Though hedgehogs are a very close second!

2.  Favourite number.  11.

3.  Non alcoholic drink.  Diet coke.  Oh! what WAS I thinking..Assam Tea is my favourite drink!

4.  Facebook or Twitter.  Facebook, but incognito as I ONLY use it to keep in touch with my daughter.

5.  My Passions.  Wildlife and Nature, closely followed by the 'collecting' bug.

6.  Receiving/giving gifts.  Giving.

7.  Favourite Pattern.  This was a difficult one as I don't sew, so I choose the design for Hedgehog Houses :o)

8.  Favourite day.  Wednesday, a day I sometimes share with a very dear friend.

9.  Flower/flowers.  Roses, foxgloves, poppies.  In fact all cottage garden flowers.

10.  Favourite country.  England.  I worked as a travel agent for over 4 years and NEVER had the slightest inclination to holiday abroad!  (Yes, I'm a little strange ;o)

Now I need to nominate 5 or 10 blogs to pass on the award to, and let them know they're nominated.  This is difficult, I read and follow so many lovely blogs.  If I miss you it's not because I don't think you deserve this award.

2.  Leanne at Tales of Simple Days

3.  M at Vintage Jane

4. Keshling at Keshling pulls it off

5.  Lucey at Lemonade Kitty 

6.  Kirsty at Sixty-one A

7.  Mary at A Breath of Fresh Air

8.  Charlotte at A Cottage in Totterage

9.  Lottie, Millie, Hamish,Catkin and Scooter at Isn't it dinnertime yet?

10.  Dan at Frogs, Dogs and Ferns

These blogs make me smile :o))

See you all soon, have fun!

Hi Rose
Congratulations on the Sunshine Award, and thank you very much for passing it on to me. Due to a huge mess-up with BT, we've been without broadband at home, hence my silence! It's back on now, so looking forward to catching up with what's been going on.
Thanks again
