Recent Blogging Awards

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been kindly passed on some blogging awards from some lovely ladies and have yet to post about these or say thank you, so today I thought I’d put them together in one post...

Melissa from Undomestic Mumma, Chrissy from A Country Wife and Steph from Bondville all passed on the Stylish Blogger Award to me recently. Their blogs are all ones that I really enjoy reading and so it makes me very happy that these ladies have such kind things to say about my little blog.

To accept this award I am to share seven random things about myself and pass it on to some fellow bloggers…

1. I am currently reading a book called ‘Toddler Tactics’.

2. My least favourite household chore is handwashing.

3. Raspberry, cranberry and strawberry tea is my favourite herbal tea.

4. Tuesday is grocery shopping day in our household.

5. I can't remember the last time I indulged in a nice, relaxing bubble bath.

6. There are only six weeks until my birthday.

7. “Doing my hair” in the morning literally takes me ten seconds.

I’d like to pass this award on to…

Stephanie Sue from The Merry Way
Sharyne at The Views From My Valley
“MB” of Mama Bear’s House
Sonia of Raine and Sage
Emma of The Adventures of Baby Pirate and Captain Nicholas
Bron at Baby Space

Also, Anna from Around My Table recently passed on the award above to me too so a big thank you also to her.

Hope you all have a wonderful start to the week!

  1. All very well deserved awards Amanda! It always takes me forever to get around to my handwashing and my hair also takes about 10 seconds to do, but I bet it doesn't look as nice as yours! I'm almost 40 and still have no idea how to do it properly!!
    Ps I love that first image. Xx

  2. Congrats, you deserve. I'm very interested in this tea of yours, sounds perfect. xx

  3. Interesting facts about yourself Amanda. It's always good to get insights into bloggers lives.
    We must share a birthday month :o)

  4. Congrats my dear! VERY well deserved and I loved reading your facts! I can't remember the last time I had a nice long bubble bath either. The only time I have a bath I'm joined but my little splashing monkey which is not exactly relaxing :) hehehe.
    I hope you've had a wonderful day adn weekend!

  5. Ah, Sweetie, all so well deserved. Bravo you. I completely relate to #5. Sigh. J x

  6. You are a sweet blogging friend and so deserving of these awards:) Thanks for sharing some little bits about you, I love the sound of that tea. I'll have to remember your special day coming up soon;) Have a wonderful Tuesday lovely. xo

  7. Congratulations Amanda (and thanks for the mentioning). I miss a good bath too, along with reading the paper on a Sunday uninterrupted with a long breakfast in a cafe etc.. life is different, but I'm happy. My bath is made for smurfs, so quite perfect for a 2 and 4 year old. x

    Have a great day!
