Kreativ Blogger Award

With thanks to Nuala Ní­ Chonchúir, a terrific writer and blogger, who awarded me this and prompted me thus: 1. Post the award on your blog and link to the person who gave you the award. 2. List seven things you love. 3. Pass it on to seven blogs you love.

My Seven Things:

1. My daughter
2. Her father
3. Our new home city (moving soon!)
4. The original shutters and window-seat in our new pad
5. Books
6. Spending time with my mother
7. Shaking up the mix, decluttering, moving on.

My Kreativ Blogger Award recipients:

Words in Place
Nik's Blog
Vanessa Gebbie's News

Anne Brooke's Writing Journal
Do You Write Under Your Own Name?

No obligation on anyone to participate but let me know if you do so I can check out your responses.

A fine list, Sarah. Thanks for the award!

Sarah Hilary said...

You're welcome, Nik. I'm always inspired by your blog.

You're moving?! Where to? X

Sarah Hilary said...

Hi, MG. I'll drop you an email. x

Douglas Bruton said...

thank you so much for this. Am I expected to give a long rambling speech where I start with how my parents first encouraged me to write and then my teachers and then how I won a slogan competition on the back of a cereal box and a Blue Peter badge for a pancake poem - and haven't looked back since?

I hardly do anything on my blog, so this is such a surprise. Makes me think I ought to do more. Not sure I can list seven other blogs that I 'love'... and one of them would be yours anyway, so forgive me if I do not participate properly.

But for the record will list seven things I do like:

1) Maple Pecan Pastries
2) My own bed (especially after a time away)
3) Winning
4) Words
5) Amber (the fossilised resin with spiders or leaves trapped inside)
6) Holding my breath underwater
7) Brighter days

Once you start, the temptation to go on listing is great.

Thanks again.

With the list you have here number 1 is your daughter 2nd is her father, so now I started to ask my self who comes first, who mean more my daughters or their father?..:-) I guess I'll have the same answer as yours.

Sarah Hilary said...

Great list, D and thanks for sparing us the speech(!). You might not blog often but it's always from the heart when you do and that makes an impression. Now, don't go holding your breath underwater TOO much, will you?

Sarah Hilary said...

Hi Hannah, I should have prefaced my list with "in no particular order", of course.
