Tiredness, Birthdays, Washing , Thank yous and Good Luck to all.

Goodbye Mexico

Hello England

Well it’s back down to reality with a bang! Home yesterday after eight and a half hour flight. Having had only a short nap on the plane,we were tired. The sun was shining (a rarity here of late) so I got all the holiday washing on the go. Then we found out the Mother in Law, who was 98yrs old yesterday had nothing planned neither hubby’s brother or sister was doing anything to celebrate with her! So we abandoned all hope if sleep and took her out for an Indian meal early evening. She was pleased and enjoyed herself and was spoilt. So after being on the go for 23hrs we finally got to bed 😱!

Today I should of gone to Pilates at 9am but we did not wake up until 10.30am ( I wonder why) so Pilates was out. Well it was hubby’s birthday, yes the day after his Mum’s! So I gave him his pressie and made breakfast. Our middle son who had a day off took us out for lunch as a treat for his Dad! Then we went and got Ruby back from our sister in law and her hubby ( no longer a sister-in-law but dearly loved friend) they always look after Ruby when we are away.

We took Ruby for a walk then had tea then a busy evening sorting things. Hubby rang or texted everyone thanking them for their cards and wishes.

So I only had a chance to check my mail an hour ago. Guess what there was a lovely nomination badge waiting for me… As you can see after wracking my brain I did remember how to put it up on my blog woohoo!

So that has finished of a great day perfectly. All that leaves me to say is thank you to whoever nominated me and another thank you to whoever may have voted for me I am truly honoured and grateful. We have not got much longer to wait to find out who the winners are. I want to wish everyone who was nominated lots of Good Luck and I look forward to meeting those of you who are attending the ABB on the nineteenth….. Not long now.

Well it’s nearly 00.46 and I need to sleep so I must go to bed. I know I am behind reading all your Posts and I am behind with writing too but please bare with me and I shall do my best to catch up with you all.💜💜💜

Above, tired me! Night Night all 💜💜💜💜

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I start this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award”

 Nominees

Kate 58  Because she writes about the everyday and makes it special. Also she has had such a fight with the Home Office and she rightfully one!

WORDSFALLFROMMYEYES.  She has had such a hard life and she has come through. Her blogs and her bravery  truly inspire me.

POEMS AND STUFF      I met Pen early on and she encouraged me so much. She went away and I missed her so. Now she is back and I am so happy!!

WENDELL A BROWN    Wendell carries a heavy load but he is always there to support.

MARTIN SHONE   He will be so annoyed but he is such a talent and such a support to everyone he knows on wordpress.

and a special extra  mention, PRAYINGFORADAY   I have only just bumped into him here on wordpress but I understand where he is speaking from and visa versa  pills and pain  we know them well!!
