40-Love

I love a good game.tennis2

Anyone for a hit of tennis?

Pat at New Bloggy Cat has been kind enough to hit the ball my way. I could wax lyrical about Pat’s ability but I won’t. Pat’s blog title was enough of a draw card for me. The game has only just begun so if you’d like to go and choose a seat I’m sure Pat would be thankful for bums on seats and an appreciative audience.

I certainly don’t feel like a pro in this game but at least I no longer look like a rubgy player with a racquet in my hand.

The requirements for this award are as follows:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

7 things about me and fluoro yellow balls:

  1. It amuses me that the word ‘Love’ in tennis means you have no points.
  2. The definition of ‘crap at tennis’ in Wiki would have my picture next to it.
  3. Watching tennis is enjoyable and often has me in a trance (kind of like a pendulum swinging).
  4. I have been known to lose sleep just to be able to watch the end of the Wimbledon/U.S./Australian open final.
  5. I have been to a real live tennis match.
  6. Almost 6 is better at tennis than I am.
  7. I have the reflexes of a rhinoceros.

The third and final set is upon us.

Loyal Love

Love is loyal.

Loyalty should be rewarded and that is why I would like to thank Kim at words4jp’s blog (again) for including Free Little Words in her list of blogs/boggers that ‘show a strength of resolve’. Some days it does not feel as if I’m deserving of this title but strength is something I find daily in other blogs, like Kim’s, which inturn strengthens my resolve.dragonsloyaltyaward

Continuing the Dragon’s Loyalty Award traditions I must now:

  • Display the Award Certificate on your website.
  • Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award.
  • Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
  • Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

7 interesting things about me might be stretching the truth a little but here goes:

1.  I am afraid of heights but have skydived.

2.  I am an aunty on my side but not my husband’s side yet.

3.  Purple is my favourite colour but I can’t wear red.

4.  I was born with chocolate brown eyes but they changed to hazel.

5.  I live in the suburbs but it feels like a little slice of country (quiet, rural outlook, sheep at the back fence).

6.  I have had a koala walk right past me while sitting outside at night but didn’t have my camera handy.

7.  My mum named her children with the same starting letter. My sister continued the tradition with her kids but I broke it with mine.

Now the part that I love the most-nominating 15 other blogs. I’ve chosen to nominate 15 blogs that have shown loyalty to my blog. When I take a gander at my stats I am constantly amazed that only three months in and I have nearly 200 followers! It astounds me that people value what I tap onto the screen each day. So here’s to many of my ‘loyals’-some visit me every day-thank you for helping keep me strong.

Of course, do what you wish with your award. Some of you have stated you are no longer passing on awards. That’s cool but I think it is still important to acknowledge your blogging efforts.

Love to you and your loyal followers,

I Love Bloggers’ Awards

I’ve been here in Bloggersville for two months now and was pretty darn chuffed to receive, not one but two, blogging awards this week. So without further ado I’ll get on with this one first.

With much gratitude and thanks to Mama Bear Musings for sharing the love.

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award-iFollowing the guidelines, here are 7 things about me:

1.  I have a wonderful husband who has the innate ability to lose his car keys.

2. Aside from being a mum, I am a relief teacher (substitute teacher) and wanna-be speed reader.

3. I cannot do one thing at once and I find sitting still and doing nothing difficult.

4. I don’t like things ‘in my face’. You know, things thrust towards you that stop millimetres from your eyes. You can’t see them because they’re just too close to focus on. Makes life fun with two under 6 and my profession.

5.  I have one wonky tooth and should have listened to my parents when the option of braces was on the table.

6. Wherever I sleep, it is always closest to the door. That way I can be first out the door if there’s a fire or other calamity.

7. I crave solitude.

And now onto the most important part (drumroll please)…….

Seven sisters who may not have known they wanted this award until they got it:

1. Momtactics
2. Mom In The Muddle
3. Laurie’s Notes
4. Trying to Be a Yummy Mummy
5. Grandma Says
6. Life with Pink Princesses
7. Metal Angel

I hope you love receiving your award as much as I did.
