Awards All Round!..

Right! Awards time!

"Big thanks" to both the lovely Kelly and Angie for thinking of me with this award.

Here are the rules of this award........

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.

2. Put the award on your blog

3. List 3 things about yourself.

4. Post a picture you love.

5. Tag 5 other people for the award.

Well here goes...
1. I feel very lucky to have four children, and 2 of each is just perfect!
2. I have always been an insomniac. I feel tired most of the time, but my brain is always working overtime. It's past 3am now lol!
3. I briefly ran a successful online craft shop but had to give it up when I unexpectedly found out I was having my 4th child, as I ran it alone 24/7 (hubby busy with his own work). I used to pack parcels and upload new stock in the dead of night (my insomniac side was useful here!) It was impossible to continue with a new baby. I still have some 'stock' stashed away which I am slowly using up, lol!

Now a piccy I love. Hmm, this was hard. Having four kids I have lots! But this one is really special to me. It is our eldest Son giving me a kiss on my wedding day (9 years ago on the 25th of this month!). He was age just 3 at the time, and was very stressed out all day as he hates social, noisy gatherings. We now know this is because he has aspergers syndrome. But although he didn't really enjoy the day, he still gave gave me a lovely kiss and the photographer caught the moment. I treasure this photo, because he hasn't given me a kiss in a few years now. He says he is too old for that! (He's 12, lol!) Lucky I still have my younger ones who love to give mum a kiss!

Now I hate this bit where I have to pick people to pass it on to. I have to pick 5, but I got this award TWICE, so does that mean I pick 10?? Well it does now!

So a completely random choice ( as you ALL deserve it lol!)......

1. Amanda

2. Lizzy

3. Sarpreet

4. Jenny

5 . Rebekah

6. Carol

7. Mel

8. Susie

9. Poppet

10. Julie

.....and this award was given to me by the lovely Noreen. Thank you Noreen! I simply have to pass it on to 7 favourite blogs. I have lots of faves, but I do get a lot of inspiration from the following.......

I could pick more, I really could, but I'll stick to the rules this!
Thanks for stopping by.
Jenny xx
