Many thanks to Keri for nominating my humble blog for this award, if you are looking for neat ideas to upcycle or give your home a makeover go check her blog out …after reading my post first of course !!
As I sit here in my tiara, long white gloves, and full evening gown, I raise my rather healthy proportioned glass to you all 🙂 This is the second nomination in this category and I’ll do a recap of my last acceptance speech, mainly because the juniper cordial I’m gulping down (in a most unladylike way) is beginning to kick in !!!
Sooo I have to mention how / why I started blogging
I have 2 blogs here on WP actually that’s a little fib I have this one & K9 has his own .. best not steal his thunder !! I called it Craft, because I wanted to chart my attempts into new crafts and Odyssey to chart my wanderings through life. There are a few of reasons why I came to be a member of this community, here are some to keep you going
A) Because of the nature of my work – Let me explain, in Dementia Care the recipients of my care frequently don’t live in our world, I get to live in theirs, which means I get to virtually travel back in time to re- live their adventures, joys, misfortunes, and loves, I have their photos and stories to connect with them but very few written notes
B) I love anecdotes, tales, stories and social history
C) Lest I or my loved ones forget who I am, what made me tick / laugh/ the essence of me
I’m also obliged to pass on my profound wisdom and advice to new bloggers *laugh cough *
Write for yourself, this is your narrative, it’s who you are, add tags, add photographs, and last but not least HAVE FUN
Now I have to nominate the next Blogger Recognition Award recipients, these are in no particular order and every blog I follow deserves a nomination !!
Florence and Freddie I have tried stamping …unfortunately my attempts were nothing like you will see on this blog – mine resembled a 2 yr olds during paint class at nursery
Sarah and Choppy Think a dog with a sense of flair and a touch of humour thrown in and you won’t be far off the mark
Jane at Pillow Parlance A wonderfully talented lady …moi jealous – ermm only a little
