Unexpected Bouquet Award

There are not many things that cause me to be speechless because I like to think I have an answer (or a point) for most things.  Today was one of those moments. I was nominated for the Bouquet of Three Award! I write my blog about my passion for the restoration of my Mustang and I enjoy doing it. I never expect to receive any award for that reason as it is quite a niche subject, but if anybody takes time out to read my blog then I am grateful that they have kindly given up their time to share my passion. There are some really great blogs out there and I was lucky enough to find a great blog by Alicia Benton http://aliciabenton.wordpress.com/ Her blog has made me laugh, reflect on and look at things from a slightly different perspective too; it really is worth stopping by to have read. I am humbled to be nominated for this award. I would honestly nominated the award to Alicia if she hadn’t already got it.

Thank you Alicia so very much.

Here are the rules:

1. Proudly display the Award Certificate on your blog page!

2. Announce your win with a post.  Be sure to link your post back to me as a “thank you” for the nomination.

3. Present up to 15 awards to fellow deserving bloggers.

4. Let them know you’ve nominated them for this awesome award.

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Back to work

The last thing at the end of a holiday…

After a week off from work I set the alarm on the sunday night and got into bed depressed. The main reason being that my nice week had come to an end and now  it was back to work. The turning on of the alarm ritual on Sunday night before you sleep is the signal that the holiday is over or the weekend has been and gone. Monday morning the alarm went of and it was like a sonic boom going through my head that honestly deserved the barrage of abuse that it got, not that it cared as it continued to bleep like it was doing me a favour. Then I hit the snooze, those few minutes never seemed to have happened, I ‘m sure a quantum leap in time stole those oh so precious minutes from me. It’s funny how that after the welcome back to work and the stories of what I had been up to had subsided, by the time mid afternoon arrived it was like I had never been away. I need another holiday.
