1. I need to thank the person who nominated me.

2. Share 7 things about myself that you still may not know

3. Nominate 15 bloggers.

4. Notify the nominees that I have done so.

5. Put the logo of the award on my blog site

For the 7 things about myself, here we are for all awards:

7 things about me:

1) I was told off as a 6 year old child for not cutting straight in school. I have never forgotten that.

2) I never expect certain outcomes, so everything what happens is surprising.

3) I can repair a kitchen tap, and I am proud of it.

4) I love to have my kitchenworktop almost empty.

5) I like washing up, vacuuming but I do not like ironing.

6) I love my freedom.

7) I love holding hands and romance!

I shall change the rules a bit as I need to nominate 15 bloggers each award. I shall nominate 5 each which will make 15 in the end.

But firstly a massive big THANK YOU to Ruby and Sandra for including me. I really appreciate it and send a big cyber hug out to you.

My nominees are:

I do not know if you all accept awards, don’t worry if you don’t, but I want to show you my appreciation and that I love your blog.

  2. Congratulations on your blogging award nominations, worthy for a great blog. Thanks for nominating Liberated Way.

  3. Thank you for the honor of the award. And you surely deserve all yours. Making people happy is one of the best……….no, I think it is the best of traits. We all try. But for some it just comes naturally. πŸ™‚

  4. Thank for the nomination, dear Ute. I am so sad you were told off for not cutting straight! But, hey, you can fix a kitchen tap. I like that. You can come to my house anytime. Love the slow cooker and the colour of the slow cooker.

  5. What a great week for you! Awards AND a slow cooker! Reynolds sells crockpot liners. I HIGHLY recommend these as the clean up is almost nothing. (I am lazy and hate cleaning slow cookers!) Have a great weekend! paula β™₯

  6. Congratulations again for receiving another pile of awards dear Ute. πŸ˜€
    Maybe you should have bought a Slow-Slow-Quick-Quick-Slow cooker πŸ˜‰ Ralph x

  8. It’s an absolute pleasure to nominate you for the One Lovely Blog award. Your blog is inspirational and a pleasure to read. Congratulations on your other awards, they are very well deserved. Big cyber hugs back to you.

  9. I love my slow cooker, it is a godsend in this hot country to cook food without having to put the oven or gas ring on! I make some good stocks and soups in it, along with the usual beef casserole and chilli, ideal when the kids want to eat at different times too. I will have to do a recipe post on a slow cooker meal for a change won’t I? Cath

    • Oh Cath, yes please, a nice easy recipe would be great. I googles some and I shall try one on Friday as I want to be at home for hte first time …watching…. haha. Never thought of different times, that is great! I am exploring hte world of slow cooking now! Thank you!

      • Will get my thinking cap on. It won’t be until after the Easter hol now with everyone at home(!). Just remember on Friday not to keep lifting the lid as it will loose all the heat and take longer to cook! Good luck.

  10. Ute, just popping in briefly and want to congratulate you and thank you for remembering catnip πŸ™‚ As you know I am offline for awhile and did not want you think I was not appreciative. Not sure when I will be able to pay it forward. Hopefully, it will not be too long!

    • Thank you so much, Sharla, you stay with your husband , he needs you, and you need to be strong together. Wishing you both all the best. My htoughts are with you! Most appreciated you popped in! Big hug Ute
