Inspiring Blogger Award

It was a nice surprise to find a nomination for me today by Lois of ‘Living Simply Free’ for the Inspiring Blogger Award. You can check out this link to Lois’s blog – she writes about simple living in a 300 sq ft apartment.

Thank you for the nomination Lois.To satisfy the requirements I need to first list 7 things about myself.

1. Today my hairdresser snipped off the last of my blonde tips. I am now officially 49 shades of grey. This might come as a shock to my children who have probably only ever seen me with blonde hair.

2. By tomorrow I may decide to buy a bottle of blonde hair colour.

3. A dinner without a portion of my home grown silverbeet cannot really satisfy.

4. I can never have too many home-grown vegetables stashed in the fridge.

5. I can never have too many pots of home-made preserves in the larder.

6. I love my allotment.

7. I am probably obsessive about fresh veggies. (Oh, really?)

Now I have to declare my favourite fifteen blogs. I don’t think you’ll be too surprised at the subjects covered.  So here goes.

    Me too! Thank you for the kudos Jean :). I get as much out of your wonderful blog as you ever would out of mine and as you are a good 4 months ahead of us with your Queensland gardening season I can see what the season is dishing up nice and early and go with what grows well with you 😉

      Hi Fran. Thank you for your kind words. Just checking the weather on the tele this morning and the mainland is in the grip of a real heat-wave. Can you believe it, some folk even left their kids in cars yesterday and the kids had to be rescued!

    That was quick. I am like you, I used to color my hair blonde, then when no color would cover the grey I finally gave up and cut off the color to let the grey show. Still after a couple of years, people who see me remind me I need to add color. Why? You have some wonderful blogs listed here, can’t wait to check them all out.

      I’m still looking at my reflection in the mirror trying to get used to it. I have experienced the same thing that you mention, the grey hair couldn’t grab the colour properly. I have already decided that I need to get more strong colour in my wardrobe to balance the new look. My friend who grew her hair colour out found she needed to get a couple of purple tops and some silver jewellery. It really suited her. I hope you enjoy the blogs I have listed.

      Pleased you are enjoying the list Mrs Yub. I like to discover new blogs too. I have to get up earlier and earlier in the morning to read through them! But I do enjoy getting the insight into what others are up to in their garden, or kitchen, or craft room.
