Gracious Acceptance Post
A blogging award? For me? Teresa Cypher, thank you very much! I visit Teresa’s blog for a unique blend of science fiction and country life, always uplifting and educational. (Witches Jelly was one of my favourites.)
In accordance with Kreativ blogger rules, accepting this award includes:
Firstly: Thanking the blogger who nominated me for the award and providing a link back to their blog. Done!
Secondly: Listing 7 things about myself that the readers might find interesting. Easy, I thought, I am always doing ridiculous things… only to find rascally thoughts scattering and slippery…
These are the things I grabbed hold of-
1. I have punched a seagull.
2. I married Mr in a disused slate mine.
3. Have recovered from a milk phobia. I still don’t like it, but the screaming has stopped.
4. Have seen a fox doing a bright purple poo. (They eat berries.)
5. Had to complain to my landlord more than once about goats falling through the porch roof.
6. Spent two years saving up for a car, then took my children to Singapore on holiday instead. And on my return, promptly inherited a car!
7. Accidentally find that I collect bones. The gannet skull is my current favourite. Mr found me a mole, which we left on the log shed to decompose but a crow stole it.
Thirdly: Nominating 7 other bloggers, providing links to their blogs, and letting them know.
This is where my head explodes! Who to choose, who wants the extra work, who will feel overlooked????
Apologies for all those things; here are seven things I would recommend a little visit to, if you haven’t heard of them already.
Suze writes intelligent words, well thought out, on a wide range of subjects, full of feeling and engagement with the process of life. I love the ‘Trix on coffee’ quotes too J
Super cheat- this is a website not a blog! But the content is updated regularly and if you love any aspect of cycling, from the skilful design to the nice view at the top of the hill, you will love this. It’s a labour of love!
Particularly recommend that you read the Z post from April, ‘I wish I didn’t have Asperger’s.’ Serious stuff but not at all miserable.
‘MOV writes an avant-garde recipe blog. Primary ingredients: sarcasm, folly, imagination, hyperbole, cynicism, irony, exaggeration, and self-deprecating humor. She is highly allergic to advertisements, so she leaves those out.’ Highly entertaining stuff!
My best friend from PreSchool, who lived on a boat. One day the boat was scuppered. It’s a 40 year long story and she tells it beautifully in two documentaries. The first of which, ‘The Many Romances With Rosemarie,’ is a story about living on a boat, and also a strong metaphor for the hard work required to sustain a dream. The blog is not updated regularly; Shauna is very busy; but this is honest art, worth exploring.
Honest reflective posts; the integrity of a simple life with some lovely dry humour.
The Petersons live on the road; they work hard to sustain their dream and they are so engaged in living their lives these posts can’t help but inspire.
