23rd April 2013 and 15th December 2013


The Rules for the Most Influential Blogger Award are: 1. Display the Award on your Blog. 2. Announce your win with a post and thank the Blogger who awarded you. 3. Present 10 deserving Bloggers with the Award. 4. Link your awardees in the post and let them know of their being awarded with a comment. 5. Answer each of the 11 questions that your awarder asked, and then write 11 for your awardees (or use the same ones up to you!)

First up, my answers to the questions:

1) What makes you happiest?

Finding someone else happy because of me and giving out love and happiness.

2) Do you love the Oceans or Mountains more? 

I will have to say Ocean, I do love a great sandy beach and palmtrees….. mustn’t forget the hammock in between!

3) What has been a special moment in 2013?  

My travels in summer to Spain and Germany, I spent some lovely days with good friends/family there.

4) What’s your favourite quote.

I do have many but my real favourite is from Groucho Marx:

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day , today , and I’m going to he happy in it.

5) Do you like yourself?

Yes

6) Do you stay up till midnight on New Year?

I usually do, just to see Big Ben chime then I go to bed!

7) Something you wish could be done ASAP? 

I am a very patient person and I don’t really like rushing. (Still sometimes inevitable) I have nothing on my list which is in a rush to be done.

8)What was your favourite class when still at school?

I was when I learnt Latin when I was the best in the class! (when I was about 13/14 years old)

9) What musical instrument have you tried to play?

Piano an  guitar, but don’t practice anymore unfortunately. My wish is to try Cello and double bass!

10) Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?

I wished I had learnt to stand up for myself earlier and to love myself earlier, well I do it now though. 🙂

11) Do you like to do Crafts, Drawing or Painting?

I do like crafts, bu tnot painting or drawing as I think I can’t do it, but I love making earrings, knitting, cards, decorations, love anything like that.

As I am also not totally following the rules I shall nominate people here and do hope you will pick it up here!

I would love to nominate all the blogs I am following as you are all fantastic, but that would be a bit long, so I cut it to 15! Please choose which one, or as many as you like!

As always if you do not do awards, be assured this is showing that I love your blog and want to show it this way!

Enjoy your awards!

blog of the year award♥♥♥♥♥

Here are some pictures from the German Christmas Market along the Thames in London.

They are taken with my phone so night photos do not come out so well.

I loved the stalls and the smell and the atmosphere.

I shall go again!

I enjoyed an Ostrich burger for the first time in my life, rather nice!

It is cold and next time I go,

I shall indulge in a cup of hot chocolate with real whipped cream on top…. hmmmmm.

Can’t wait!

Enjoy your Pre – Christmas time with friends, hot chocolate, loved ones and togetherness.

Again the ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3. Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award  and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4. Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5. You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6. As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

**********

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are give

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

**********

So I like to pass it on to a small selection: every blog is fantastic in it’s own way.

Congratulations to the nominees and enjoy !
