Awards from some Wonderful People

Over the past month or so I have received a number of nominations for Awards. No excuses folks; I’ve just been lazy.  So today, with little to do (thank goodness) I’m putting them all into one big post.

Thank You All for giving me your time and your thoughts; I’ve truly been made to feel so happy to be amongst you…  🙂

Now girls, I know that most of you have received lots of awards BUT, they were not from me for being great gals. You don’t have to do anything ’bout it (unless you’ve got some time to spare). What’s that?

A Real Cool Cat

Awarded by My Three Moggies

1. Thank You for this award guys – Archie, Oscar & Henry are three real cool cats who get to sleep on Mum’s soft warm bed and otherwise enjoy the benefits of cat heaven here on earth….!   🙂

2.  This award is 8 x 8 – 8 things about yourself  plus 8 nominations.

(i)  I enjoy having conversations about ‘you name it’….  (ii)  I heard a real cool joke the other day!  (iii)  I am seriously into cooking (when I get the chance)  (iv)  I love to wear my long hair up.  (v)  I wish hair didn’t go grey as we aged;  pink or green maybe, but not grey! (vi)  My partner K spoils me rotten.  (vii)  K spoils me rotten because I’m a good cook.  (viii)  I enjoy eating a really big hamburger with chips that we get from one of the local pubs; like, once every 3 months or so (it’s a great treat).

My nominations are:  (I feel like someone should hand me an envelope!)

I’ve recently been introduced to more bloggers on WordPress who are making a great contribution to our blogging world. I’d like to nominate a few of them plus a few of my older blogging friends. Once again guys:  There is no obligation; I just want to let you know that I appreciate your support and your blogs….

 Once again, many thanks to those who have taken the time to like,  make comments and support my blog… I really do appreciate you…  Happy Blogging   🙂


    1. And to you. I love your blog; I love feathers; I love tassles; I love bling… 🙂
      Great eye candy can be seen in your posts…. 🙂
      Thanks for your support…

  1. Congratulations my dear Carol 🙂 You deserved all these awards… xoxo and thank you so much too for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, it’s very inspiring and I am so honored to accept it 🙂 mmmwahhh

  2. geezes, I am way too honored to bore you with my: “..thank you, you shouldn’t have, I think you rock, You inspire me, I wish you’d adopt me…”

  3. congratulations Carolyn on all your awards – completely justified – very flattered by your nomination but I too havent replied to my last 2 awards myself so I have been as lazy as you remarked so I will have to try and do better 😀

  4. Thank you for the nomination! I also enjoyed that the things you listed about yourself were positive. I was just commenting on another blog that I don’t see enough of that. I think it’s very refreshing when someone is grateful for the things they have. Not only is it simply an attractive quality in a human being, but it has positive health-benefits. I doubt I’m telling you anything you don’t know.

    And what kind of dog is Sweetie? I’m gonna go with stereotypes and say Queensland Heeler.

    1. Thank You… so glad that you enjoyed the nomination.. 🙂
      Seriously (and I try not to go there too often) – I agree; life is way tooo short not to spend as much of it as possible being light hearted! (Objectivity leads the way!)

      I love the connection; thanks for thinking of me in this way however; she (Sweetie) is a mix of Long Haired Chihuahua and Pomeranian. If you have a look at my profile there is a pic of her there with her favourite toy. She’s a delight!

  5. Thank you dear Carolyn. I accept your award. I will thank you on my next post, whenever that is. Oh my dear, I’m doing 14 hour days with 10 hours turn around. I’m down to sneaking onto my 1/2 dozen fav Blogs.

    1. That’s so sweet of you, thank you….
      I only do it because I love it; I think it’s my way of being creative… 😉
      and, Thank You for receiving my gift… 🙂

  6. Thank you my dear sister writer. I am honored to receive this award from you. I’ve fallen behind yet again. But rest assured I will pass this award on. 😀 Thanks again you are so thoughtful.

    1. “My dear sister writer” – has a nice ring to it!…:)
      Your are most welcome Kim… Sorry for the heat wave you’re experiencing… we are in the middle of winter… wish I could send some of it your way! I too, love the colder days where one can snuggle up with a soft blanket and warm drinks… Oh well, guess we have to have ‘all’ seasons. The flowers wouldn’t know when to bloom otherwise… 😉

  7. You deserve ’em all, even if they do cut down on your virtual closet space… : )

    That was interesting about how your dog eats Thai food and likes to sing. Perhaps I should go back and read that part again… : P

    Sincere congrats, Carolyn!

    1. Thank You Mark…. 😉

      My little ‘Sweetie’ loves to eat and, indeed would eat Thai food if it were on offer… 🙂
      You are not altogether off the ‘mark’ (hee hee) when you speak about singing.
      ‘Sweetie’ takes great delight singing her little heart out to the birds who would partake of her ‘treats’. Can’t trust those birds…! 🙂 ))))))))

    1. Thank You… I was just over at your place… The site of Henry and Archie made me speechless. There were so many things I could have said and yet, all I could think about was the beauty that our pets give to us…
      I thought I’d go away and allow myself a little time to respond – and here I am doing it here…. 😉

      1. 🙂 They would not make you speechless at 5:20am this morning UK time meowing like crazy as they want breakfast early :-). I really have spoilt these moggies, but they do give me so much joy over all.
