And The Award Goes To

I've been honoured to receive the
Kreativ Blogger Award

I love reading her blog.
She takes us on a journey through her garden and flowers......... to books she's enjoying and craft.....
Thank you Dorothy!

As a recipient of this award I am aware that it
comes with responsibility.....
I have to tell 7 things about myself that other bloggers would find interesting:

1.I was born in Scotland just after the war.
2. I went to 9 different schools as my father progressed up his corporate ladder.
3.I married when I was 19 a lovely man 15 years older than myself.  Most of  you know that we have just celebrated our 46th Wedding Anniversary!
4. I have a son and two daughters who have provided us with 8 beautiful grandchildren. 7 handsome boys and one beautiful girl.
5.  I trained as a counsellor and taught counselling at our local college as well as having my own couselling practice.
6. I love where I live and want others to love it too.  I feel so fortunate. So I love my garden and walking around our beautiful coast
7.  I am a Christian and am used in ministry in our church.  In 2006-7 I was President of the English Wing of the Baptist Union of Wales

Now I have to pass the award on to 7 bloggers that I feel are deserving.  That is so hard as I believe everyone is deserving so in passing on to a few it doesn't mean that I feel all the others are undeserving!

So I pass the award on to;

Noreen at Life Blessings

Alana at All Is Amazing


Diane at Lavender Dreams


These are all lovely blogs
part of the many that I have learnt so much from
since I started blogging!

So, if you haven't met them,
please take a look at their blogs

PS.  Please don't forget my Giveaway ends on 1st June
