Some Awards for Little Old Me!!

Erin over at My Little Miracles has kindly passed on some awards to me, and I am so excited to receive them! You should go on over and check out her blog, she is amazing and I feel as if I have known her for years. She is a great mum, and well she is awe-summm!!!

1) The rules for this Awe-Summm award are to reveal 7 awe-summm things about themselves and then bestow the award on 7 other Awe-Summm bloggers!

1. I am honest. I once handed back 5 cents to a homeless man after he had dropped it. He was dirty and smelly but he said in a polite well educated voice "thank you ma'am". I thought about that alot. If I get overcharged in a shop I always tell the cashier, it's just the right thing to do.

2. I am a good friend. I always have a shoulder for my friends to cry on, and an ear to listen. Even though I don't see some friends as often as I like, I love that we can reconnect easily. I love that my friends hug me when we meet.

3. I am very compassionate towards people, and I particularly feel sympathy for homeless people. Who knows what kind of life they had and what brought them to this stage in their lives.

4. I am very happy in my own company. I prefer to go to the movies alone, something which my friends find amusing. I travelled to America by myself and was so proud of this accomplishment.

5. I have a great sense of humour, a definate dry wit, something I inherited from my dad. I do good sarcasm, and crave things that make me laugh.

6. I am a fabulous mother and a calm, patient and caring wife (see number 5 above regarding sarcasm) (this is really hard because I don't like writing these things about me, can I really be this fabulous?) and my children adore me. My husband and I have been together for 22 years so he's not sick of me yet.

7. If I set my mind to something, I achieve it. Whether it is travelling overseas, bungee jumping or raising healthy, happy yet noisy children - I do it and I do it well.

I'll pass this award on to the awesome ladies over at:-

My Kids Might Be Martians
A Nut In a Nutshell
The Whole Omelette
Mommy Is In The Bathroom
Mayberry Mom
Jeanie In Paradise

2) This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to six bloggers who must choose six more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Okay now to pass this award on to these fabulous ladies over at:-
