Another Award

I’ve just had a really lovely surprise. Ashtoreth Eldritch has just bestowed the Beautiful Blogger Award upon me. Thank you so very much! It always brightens my day when lovely people bestow recognition – who doesn’t like a bit of recognition from time to time.

So in keeping with the rules I must share seven things about myself and then nominate a further 15 good people for this award.

Well, I know I’ve shared much about myself in my blog so…hmmm….what to share? Oh well here goes:

1. I’m 47 years old but I still keep a security blanket, an old black silky night-shirt that I sometimes like cuddling at night. Even if I don’t cuddle it I like having it there. I know this is something unresolved from childhood but having it somehow comforts me.

2. I love eating raw vegetables. In fact I hardly ever eat cooked veggies except for roasted parsnips with honey glaze (yum!).

3. I love eating Nutella straight from the jar.

4. I think shaving is a complete chore…and I love my leg beards!

5. I believe it is perfectly ok to embrace modern technology as long as it doesn’t become one’s ‘god’.

6. A ritual can be as complicated and as formal as you want to make it, or it can be as simple as sitting under a full moon and blowing her a kiss. All that matters is intention and authenticity.

7. I am rather pulled towards the Dark Side sometimes and find the process of decay fascinating.

Here are the worthy blogs I’m nominating for this award:

Donna Long

The Family Herbalist

The London Flower Lover

Forest Fay


Forcing Myself Happy



Livin and Lovin

Linda Ursin

On the Far Side

If you’ve been nominated the rules are:

1) To thank and link back to the person who gave the award to you.

2) To share 7 things about yourself on your blog.

3) To nominate a further 15 blogs for this award.

Thank you once again Ashtoreth for awarding me this – it is very much appreciated.

  1. Hi there. I’m lucky enough to have been nominated for this Award by On the Far Side, which was a lovely surprise! Thought I’d pop in to see you as you had nominated that same blog previously! I like your 7 facts, especially the one about authentic rituals and I look forward to exploring more of the blogs on your list above. Have a good one, Rob

  5. Thank you so much of thinking of me, a lovely gesture.
    Hehehehe at the ‘leg beards’, I dislike shaving intenselly but still do it as my husband is not very fond of ‘hedgehog legs’.
    Nice to know a bit more about you as a person 🙂

  6. Thank you so much for this. I’m very honored. I have however jumped off the award train, as it’s taken on some of the characteristics of chainletters.
