Another couple of wonderful award nominations have landed at the Beach House doorstep recently. We love ’em!
I’ve finally managed to get around to acknowledging this kindness. We are putting both nominations onto one post due to the Beach House being full of busy at the moment. Not enough time to cook, never mind type!
Karin Wiberg nominated us for the Beautiful Blogger Award, which is a real pleasure because we love Karens writing, especially the regular haiku’s that spring from her blog. A wonderful place for creative writing and literary inspiration. We’ve been called many things in the past, but never beautiful! We are blushing up here in the hills.
Yoga with Maheswari nominated us for the Reader Appreciation Award. Yoga with Maheswari is a really wonderful blog for positive vibrations of the yogic kind, wisdom and much bendiness. One day we hope to attend a class and share a breath.
The rules of both awards basically the same:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you with a link.
- Copy and paste the award logo to your blog.
- Share seven things about yourself
- Nominate 5-10 bloggers for the award and notify them.
Seven things about ourselves:
1- Our front garden is being laid siege to by a particularly grotty group of feral street sheep. These sheep are not pets and stare down oncoming traffic. If they breech the dry stone walls, our tomatoes are in great peril.
2 – Our back garden is being laid siege to by a seemingly infinite number and vastly diverse range of ravenous slugs. They are eating anything that lays down roots for too long and we fear they may be planning future raids on the veg drawer in our fridge, such is their devious and slimy nature.
3 – Our first green chilli bloomed yesterday on the windowsill, the same day as our first tomato. A day when the sun actually shone for a while.
4 – Jane is Gemini, I am Taurus.
5 – Jane has recently taken courses in aromatherapy, mechanics, Spanish and woodworking at the local college. I am allergic to the classroom environment.
6 – The Beach House may sound like an exotic location bathed in sunshine and bikinis, well, not quite. We have had the worst summer in North Wales for the past 100 years and the Beach House may be more aptly named the House of the Rising Damp.
7 – Jane is a keen breeder of spider plants, we currently have at least one in each room and the ‘Mother’ is threatening to take over the front room (remember the film ‘Little Shop of Horrors’!)
Here are our nominations for ‘Beautiful Bloggers’ and what a gorgeous bunch they are. We also feel that they deserve the ‘Reader Appreciation Award’, so we bestow that accolade on the below blogs also. This may be bending the rules slightly, but richly deserved non-the-less.
I just wish I had the time to give them all a nice write-up, needless to say, they are all equally amazing places you should embrace, visit and enrich:
3 – Free Flow Foodie
6 – Mumtopia
8 – Kolpona Cuisine
9 – Travel Butterfly
10 – Veggie Nook
Big love and thanks to all Beach House readers, we will be posting more soon (things have been a little hectic of late).
Peace and Happiness,
Lee and JaneX
