I Feel An Oscar Acceptance Speech Coming On

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

I’ve only nominated 3 because

Lets face facts if I look this good the whole village needs to see...I'm off for a stroll around the green

    1. Keri turned my day around when she nominated me !!
      I hope as your stinky day draws to a close to feel the appreciation of the blogging community for your posts xx

    1. I have learnt soo much through the blogging community about crafting …apart from stamping I don’t think I’ll ever master that LOL
      I’ve been given advice when Big Oscar was being a plumb …to hear I wasn’t the only one experiencing adolescent behaviour was a god send !!
      So in my opinion each and every blogger deserves an award 🙂

  1. I love it!!! I have my Oscar speech ready for ever I win one. There is still time 🙂 Great post and congratulations for the second nomination. It’s true though you do have a great blog!!!! 🙂

  2. A truly deserved nomination 😀 Congratulations!!
    I hope you managed to stumble around The Green demurely, after your juniper cordial testing session – though after such an award, such celebrations are quite in order of course! 😉
    Your parade gown is quite of the minute!!! And, I noticed immediately, you are showing off those ankles in public once more! Goodness knows the reaction?? I just hope you managed to steer clear of the village pond during your lap of honour, it would be a shame to stagger in and spoil those lovely ribbon ties! LOL 😀

    1. Thank you,
      OMGoodness the outfits of the day are not made for warmth are they ?? let me tell you I’ll be thinking twice about braving the elements again with my ankles on show !! I gave the village pond a wide berth – too much mud from the local traffic getting their pre- Christmas washing done, and Dearie the ribbons don’t chafe half as much as one might be given to think

  3. Congratulations on your latest award… I hope Beloved is busy constructing an extension to the cottage to store all those trophies you’re collecting! Enjoy your celebratory juniper cordial, you’ve earned it!
