I know I posted yesterday, but hey! Entries from me are like buses, you wait for ages for one to come along, then two come togetherThe reason for this post is because…. just as I was about to go to bed last night an alert came through, from Jeannette’s Jottings, Val ,had awarded Jeannette, with a ‘’Nice Matters’’ award ,as I was reading and composing my comment to Jeannette (in my mind ),to tell her how she so deserved the award ,for all the reasons Val stated and more ,when I started my journal she became my mentor ,helping me out on numerous occasions ,she has indeed become a friend to myself and many others including my sister Jean .
I read on, only to read she had passed on this award to me ,I felt so proud and grateful thank you Jeannette ,………and then …….and then I am challenged to choose some favourites of mine to award ,a ‘’Nice Matters’’ award to ,so here’s the tricky bit, who shall I choose ?just who shall I choose ,? There are so many of you dear friends ,hey Jeannette this is hard ,but as you said if the people we choose, choose their own then we could all end up with this award in our side bar ,SO here goes in no particular order ….
Joan, dear Joan started her journal, just before me, she lives quite near, as the crow flies, but since we aren’t crows! She has just had a new baby Granddaughter, Joan and I met when her daughter got married, just briefly for a quick hug before Joan had to go into the Wedding service…..
Another dear Joan, who has been journaling for pretty much the same time, lives in Scotland and is a keen bird watcher, Joan is also an avid reader, and we find we share the same taste in books, and often email each other …..
Barry ,is a Postman ,but has recently been off sick ,his knees have been giving him problems ,all that walking delivering letters ,and running away from dogs ? Barry always makes me laugh, though has been known to make me cry to, Oh and Barry likes hats!....
It is always a joy to read Sybil’s journal, she tells of activities in her community, and her holidays with her friend Mary, Sybil wrote to me when I was featured on the welcome page, and we have been friends since…..
I love Angie’s journal ,she has a great sense of humour ,she keeps me amused with stories of her Grannies ,of her bath room renovation ,and many more things ,Angie also likes to read ,
This Lady is a Scot living in the Lake district, Jeanie takes such lovely pictures of her walks around her area, and between her pictures and her words you feel as though, you have been there with her ,she has become friends with my daughter Kate ,through email because of Kate’s love of the area Jeanie lives in …..
And bringing my selection to a close ,last but, as they say most certainly not least ,My Dear friend Kath ,what an amazing feat to write all her journals in rhyme Kath is great fun ,and has been such a support to me when I was ill, she calls herself Mother hen ,and is a right ‘good egg ‘
Of course I could have chosen lots more Connie and Jeanette's travels are private ,and now I think about there are many more but Jeannette tells me we are allowed seven ,I hope you enjoy reading the ones I have suggested bless you all my dear friends ,and dont forget to pick up your awrds to put into your side bar
The pink one for the ladies and the dog in the hat for Barry so there we are have a great week end with love from
