Blogging Awards

Some of the roses in our garden


I was very happy and grateful to receive a nomination for the Beautiful Blogger Award from my new friend Eunice at Living and Lovin The award happened to coincide with the completion of my first year of daily blogging which made it even more special.

The rules are to post 7 interesting things about myself, nominate other bloggers who I feel deserve the award, and let them know about the nomination.

So here are 7 little snippets of information about myself:

  1. When I was 12 years old I wanted to be a psychiatrist
  2. My favourite flavour of Italian ice cream is green apple
  3. My husband Clive and I met through a dating agency
  4. I have a lumbar scoliosis of 52 degrees
  5. I have 6 moles on my arm, evenly spaced & in an exact straight line
  6. We owe our present house in Italy to an earthquake
  7. I adore growing roses

Here is a list of other bloggers who I feel especially deserve the award:


I’m delighted to announce that Eunice at Living and Lovin has very kindly nominated me for another award – the Super Sweet Blogging Award.

    Thank you so much for recognizing our blog as one you enjoy. We are honored. We visited Italy in October 2008 for ten days, and I think I ate every flavor of Italian ice cream available and loved them all. I think of all my good Italian memories every time I read your blog. Thank you again.

      Thank you for your message. Green apple is only just my favourite (my second favourite is probably melon).
