The One Lovely Blog Award nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer or up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and to also help the new blogger reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow-blogger who chose them. This award acknowledges bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers. In order to “accept” the award the nominated blogger must follow several guidelines. I have these guidelines listed below.
The guidelines for the One Lovely Blog Award are:
•Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
•Add the One Lovely Blog Award logo to your post and/or blog.
•Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
•Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.

7 facts about myself: 

1. I wished I had paid more attention in history lessons when I was in school. I find history so interesting now.

2. I am looking forward to Winter and ordered more jumpers to keep warm.

3. I love blogging.

4. I just did my next Tap exam – Gold Bar 2 – with honours, I am happy!

5. I would love to take a tour round some parts of the world and visit you all!

{New Post] The Orples Get Stuck

Standard

utesmile:

Thomas is having fun with 2 new friends, Oskar and Olivia. Let’s hope Oskar gets out and doesn’t forget the belly scratch…..

Originally posted on orples:

The orples stopped by to say hello to Ute in her blog Ute Smile. Ute has such a ‘happy’ blog, and if you’ve not been there you might to stop by and say hello.  Pay no attention to her lazy cat, unless you think you can help Oscar find reprieve. I am hoping Olivia will  have already gotten Oscar out of his jam by the time the rest of us get there.

It appears Ute's smart cat is only pretending to be asleep, hoping for a belly scratch.

While Olivia tries to wake the kitty up, lets head on out and see what the rest of our neighbors are up to as we visit the neighborhood. :)

Have you seen the Orples?

May I introduce Olivia and Oskar, the Orples from the neighbourhood.

They travel round quite a bit so I thought they might like to visit London too.

See my favourite bridge – Tower Bridge which opens up for tall ships.

The ABC of genuine happiness – Z

Standard

The ABC of Genuine Happiness

happiness1

Z – Zap Negativity

Oh yes,

Negativity brings you down, being with negative people all the time will make you feel negative and down. Let’s see life in a positive way.

Life is fantastic, it is what you make it and even on a bad day there is something positive at the end of the day. Even if it is something small. Seeing the small things and being grateful for it is the best way to find positivity in your life and surroundings. Enjoy your breath in the cold air,  enjoy being alive, enjoy the bird in the tree singing, enjoy the peaceful 5 minutes you get in a busy day, enjoy the hug you give.

Enjoy every moment. Every moment is precious!

Y – Yell less.

Yelling has never solved problems but more likely added to it.

It is much better to stay calm, think and discuss the problem and find a solution.

Yield to your thoughts

I have to admit I am not very familiar with the word yield. So here some thoughts about thoughts….
