My Award Acceptance & Nomination Blog

Image
While scrolling the Facebook feed as usual I was pleased to see that Tanya Tonks Mawer had been given a blog award for her Fabulous blog   "Crazy Purple Mama"  http://crazypurplemama.blogspot.co.uk/
reading how her and her wonderful family cope in the face of such adversity, the blog award was well placed. The lady that recently started this idea off  is http://sallyjustme.blogspot.co.uk/ & what a lovely idea it is too.

So I was chuffed and rather suprised that in passing the blog award badge on, Tanya had chosen me to be a recipeient. So big thanx Tanya, the nice news came  just at the right time and really lifted my spirits ;).
