My acceptance speech

I would like to add to the above that every single blogger that I have crossed paths with has inspired and helped me in some way. To you all I repeat THANK YOU. I cannot praise any of you enough. { Face reddens , tears appear}   I am in the middle of the NaPoWriMo  challenge for this month of April  so I am going to be very naughty and say I award everyone who receives my blogs eg those who follow me and those to whom I am on nodding terms  please take this award  you all deserve it and there are plenty of awards to go around !!!

I would like to thank  both  Bernice and Misbehavedwoman   for awarding me the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Both ladies have wonderful blogs and I truly advise you drop in and take a look.


1 Tell 7 things about yourself

2 Nominate  more bloggers ( usually 15 but surely that is not obligatory if you find it hard you can nominate more or less)

3 Notify the your nominees

4 Make sure you thank and link in the blogger who awarded you.

1 I am very naughty and have been known to bend the rules.

3 I am a determined and often cussed female

4 I adore my family

5 I am sadden by the way we treat our planet

6 I am appalled  by the way humans treat their fellow human and even more so on how they treat animals who cannot fight back.

7 I love you all.


  I am in the middle of the NaPoWriMo  challenge for this month of April  so I am going to be very naughty and say I award everyone who receives my blogs eg those who follow me and those to whom I am on nodding terms  please take this award  you all deserve it and there are plenty of awards to go around !!!

        I know….x
        Go to edit..
        Copy the Youtube URL…
        Open .Notepad
        Then Copy the EXACT URL you pasted.
        Paste the EXACT URL into your blog.
        Use the [ youtube= ] tags

        There is a problem copying URL’s from youtube direct to WordPress just now. This is the ONLY way I can make them show. It might be a regional thing, no idea…

        You following? lol
        Seems strange and odd, trust me, if you just copy and paste the video won’t show..

        Let me know and I will tell you if it works…

      still not working will the link work??

        Yeah, it should..I noticed lately when you copy and paste a youtube link it won’t work. Try pasting the entire URL into, say, Notepad, then copy it from there, into the [youtube= < Tags… It should show.

        In-fact. try just editing it now doing that..You understand. Go to edit, copy the URL .notepad, paste. then copy the same URL (Sounds crazy I know) Then paste it back, then it should show..
        Let me know..

    I can’t remember if I even thanked you …. I am going to try to get it done along with a few others tomorrow (Sunday). Yesterday was spent all day in the ER with mom, today my son and grand-daughter are coming into town for a few hours and my daughter’s wedding dress fitting/alterations are today, plaus have to see mom and step-dad (different facilities) and try to finish cleaning out moms house. Ugh.. LOL I promise I’ll do it and I do so much enjoy reading your blog. I am WAY behind, but I might borrow a few of these pictures. You are GOOD at matching the pictures with your words. I love it! You’re such a talented writer 😀

      Thanks for your words, use any of the pictures. Don’t worry about “thank yous” and the like , the award was given because you deserved it. You do not need to spend time following irrelevant rules, I get ride of the rules if I could. You have so much to cope with right now. I wish you well with the wedding, the house clearance and your son and granddaughter’s visit. Relax and enjoy!! 😉
