Blog Award

Lovely Scarlet over at Tales Beyond The Nook has nominated me for a blog award, for which I thank you. 

Like her, I feel the need to not give too much away about my personal life and am not too keen in the current phase of my life to “obey” rules.

It is not because I don't want you all to know things about me as such, simply that I consider it all too easy to give too much personal information about yourself away, and you never know who might be reading. Internet personal data safety is very important and I think some people forget this.

Like Scarlet, I am glad people enjoy reading my blog and a few like to leave comments. They are much appreciated and I have no idea how some of you cope with the huge numbers of comments you receive.

There are rules which go with the award - thank the people who nominated you, list 7 things about yourself and pass the award on to 15 others.

Anyway, herewith a few things you may or may not know about me:

1 – Although not of retirement age, I am retired.

2 - I love making things.

3 - Insidious advertising that reels you in without you realising annoys me and I am growing very adept at avoiding it.

4 – Although not a dog owner, I have a lovely Grand-dog who is a joy.

Now to nominate a few blogs – I'm not going to do 15, sorry folks. All the blogs I follow I enjoy. I also take time out to read the blogs of those you follow me but who I may not follow in return. I would do, but life is just too short! 

As I also don't want to pressurize them into doing this award, I shall not let them know I have nominated them. Hopefully they will find out when they read this blog! Pay them a visit if you have time.

Abigail over at Keeping it Simply Thrifty
and finally, Fran over at Bonnie of Clyde

I would also like to welcome Ronniie to my blog. Thanks for joining.

Signing off for now folks for a rest and a cup of tea. Like Scarlet, I too am going to make this an Award Free Blog – sorry.


  1. Congratulations on the award, and thank you so much for awarding me :)
    Hope you had a good rest and enjoyed the cup of tea.

  2. Thanks for the welcome and for writing such an enjoyable blog.


  3. I had a lovely cup of tea, thanks Hilde. I have now knitted one slipper for felting and am half way through the other, told you I was a slow knitter.

    You are most welcome Ronniie.

  4. Thank you so much for the award it is lovely of you xxxxxx
