Thanks so much to Tea Norman (aka Topazshell) (aka ‘Books make me Happy“) for nominating me for this award. I’m truly honoured and am very proud to both accept and pass on the privilege to other deserving bloggers. The rules for acceptance are simple…

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Add the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award” logo to your post.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers who inspire you.

  6. One of my favourite places is our beach-hut

Fifteen blogs which inspire me

  3. Blossoms World
  4. Ann Johnson-Murphree
  5. 1 one poet 4 man

Hopefully, ping backs will kick in for each of these, but I’ve added a post comment to each ‘about’ page as well. And yes, I do appreciate that people have different views on accepting blogger awards – some do, some don’t. So, if you’re one of those who don’t, sorry to have troubled you but as that doesn’t stop the inspiration, I hope you’ll simply accept the thanks and sentiment instead.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
