Two in a Row ...

... I'm totally overwhelmed ... look what's happened now!



Dear Alison at Foxgloves has kindly nominated me for this new Award - which I have to admit to being rather chuffed about! (Chuffed - does one still say that, or am I showing my age?) It's nice to know that I offer up some 'nice matters' sometimes!

It's an "I'm not sure what it's going to do today" sort of day today - sun and blue sky, but grey clouds dotted around, quite a breeze (well, quite windy actually up here on this hill). But wasn't yesterday lovely? We met some friends at Clark's village in Street for coffee and our annual catch-up of news, cooled off in Sainsburys (what fun!) and then I did something I never do ... I lay on my new lounger (from Gillie - she gave us one each as a belated 30th WA prezzie - what a lovely friend she is ...) under the apple tree, with my book and a white wine spritzer ... and promptly fell asleep! Out for the count ... for about an hour. Wonderful!

After the initial muzzy head that you get when you fall asleep during the day had disappeared, I felt quite refreshed and decided that there IS more to life than humping boxes of stock in and out of the car all the time. I think I need to pace myself better. Watch this space ... if it ever happens it'll be a miracle!

So, thank you Alison for this great award. I need to think about who to pass it on to. Apparently I must choose 7 fellow bloggers. How difficult is that going to be, bearing in mind my internet favourites list has about 200 of you listed! I don't get to visit you all every day (obviously), but I do enjoy browsing through the list and either clicking at random, or systematically working through the list from time to time. Check at the bottom of this post to see who I nominate as I choose them ...

Have a jolly week ...

I am so pleased you have taken time out to relax especially on the lounger, which was the intention - under the apple trees. You need to balance work and rest and a small gift is worth a renewed you, totally relaxed so I can visit again, and wear you out all over again!
Many congratulation on your award -
what another wonderful gift.
You are a special person you. You deserve it.
Love Gxx
