Being creative

I have been given me this pretty and unusual award by Mima. So it is a big thank you to her for being so kind. I have to list six things which make me happy then pass the award onto six blogs.
The six things that make me happy are:
  • having my husband home
  • our garden
  • seeing all our work on the cottage come to fruition
  • in the summer, a warm sunny day
  • sitting by a log fire in the winter
  • a relaxing bath after a hard day at work
I am passing the award onto three blogs that I have been reading for some time:

imbeingheldhostage - if I could only use one word to describe her blog it would be creative, so I can not, not give this award to her.
strawberry jam anne - for such a creative blog title
moments from suburbia - who always writes about something different

and three enjoyable blogs that I have recently started to read:

Sitting by a log fire in the evening and relaxing in a hot bath after a hard day..... yes, that seems to be fine by me. And of course the garden and husband and family. All of them really.

word verification was COVENS! LOL

Creativity lies in so many little parts of our life that sometimes go without being acknowledged.

Proud to say I know five of the six bloggers you're mentioned here.

By the way, I think you asked me (earlier this week) why my novel was so expensive on Amazon. Truly, I have no idea and Crazy Cath told me a couple of months ago that she saw a secondhand copy for about 160 pounds!

It's a lot cheaper to buy it from Penguin. If you need details, let me know. As far as I know, new copies are on sale for about S10 plus shipping.

CW - thank you so much for this award. I can't really take the credit for the name, but it is a name some friends call me and I decided to use it for my blog.

And I'll add my congratulations to you on receiving the award yourself.

Mima said...

You very much deserve the award too! I thought it was a pretty one as well, one of the prettiest that I have seen - someone has a good eye for design I think. I love several of the blogs that you have passed it onto!

Mima - thank you once again for the award. I am glad that you approve of my choice of recipients
