A Humble Thankyou

Yet again I am honoured to have been given awards by some of my fellow bloggers. Such abundance and generosity, it’s giving me a warm glow inside, just when I need it!

First I have to  thank Novie whose blog http://misexperienciaspersonales.wordpress.com/   is delightful and at times touching for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’.

 The One Lovely Blog Award

From visiting Novie and a few more bloggers I’m really starting to like the idea of visiting the Philippines, it sounds like a divine place to travel around. Novie also gave me the Verstile Blogger Award!

Sunshine has a sweet and visually appealing blog, http://seraphim6.wordpress.com/ and she also gave me the One Lovely Blog award.

One of the most courageous bloggers I know is Cee, http://ceeslifephotographyblog.wordpress.com/ she is a brave inspirational lady whose writing is honest and talks about subjects that need to be talked about. Cee, we have things in common. She very kindly sent me the

which I will pass on as soon as I can!

Jake over at http://jakesprinters.wordpress.com/ is an incredibly talented graphic designer, each week his take on the weekly photo challenge is totally unique, skillful and sets a standard I could only dream of. Jake gave me the very special

I think this one will bring me up to date now, Just Ramblin’ Pier http://justramblinpier.wordpress.com gave me the Creative Capture Award. Just Ramblin’s blog is packed with great dogs and is so cute. Wonderful photography as well! JRP actually created this award

so it’s a real honour to receive it from the horses mouth especially as I’ve never had one for photography!

Thanks again to all who have bestowed these gifts to me, I will gradually pass them on in the next few weeks, looking for less recognised people who I feel really deserve them.

I woke up today feeling my usual upbeat, happy self but after awhile some gloom began to creep in. I started to think about some of the big challenges ahead this year. So this afternoon I walked the dogs in the park, chilly, but I was hatted and gloved and it was full of colour. These are some of the things I saw.

I’m not even going to bother telling you what caused my early morning wallow, I’m sure that somehow it will be okay and these little bursts of cheer have helped me to put my normal, positive head back on!
