Grateful for my blogging friends

I have to say that I feel very lucky to be blessed to have some kind souls who come by my space and share comments, advice, support and friendship.

Recently and not too recently two lovely ladies Andrea and Veronica have kindly thought of me and shared some awards for me to pass on.  Andrea from Little Buckles passed on the Liebster Award to me a little while ago I am embarrassed to say, I am sorry for not passing it on sooner Andrea.  Andrea's blog is delightful, happy and a place I love to visit and see what she and her two little ones, Sam and Bella have been up too.  The award asked me to pass it to five of my favourite blogs, stop by and visit them you'll love peaking into their worlds.

* Jode from Mummy Musings and Mayhem
* Sandrine from Historie de soie....
* Tammi from Littlepoppa
* Amanda from Homely One
* Sally from virtu
And today Veronica at Giggles and Chatter passed on the sunshine award to me, thank you.  Veronica's blog  is full of lovely snippets of her life living by the sea, her delicious cooking and crafting. Now for the questions.

* colour - blue
* animal - our cute doggy Molly
* non-alcoholic drink - tea, lemon lime and bitters, hot chocolate
* facebook or twitter - none
* getting or giving presents - love to give, wrap and choose
* flower - rose, peony and daisies
* pattern - little spots
* passion - my family, living simply and craft
* number - 2

I'd like to pass the award onto
* Gina from The Baynhams
* Andrea from Harvest with Glee
* Lynda from A life of charming moments by Miss Prudence Knits
* Bron from Maxabella Loves
* Jill from deux chiens et un garcon
Please don't feel obliged to play along if you don't want to, no pressure.

I'd also like to say a big thank you to the kindness of some lovely ladies Tammi at Littlepoppa,
Gina from The Baynhams and
Jane from Life on Planet Baby.
These ladies have been so supportive not only since the news of my father but always, visiting and brightening my day with their thoughtful words on my blog. Thank you for the gifts you've sent and for the support, I am blessed.
