Liebster award

A big thank you to Jo with the adorable cavalier King Charles spaniel for giving me this award today. I was attracted to her blog The Good Life because the title is the same as a 1970s comedy about a couple, Tom and Barbara,  who are trying to live a self-sufficient lifestyle with hilarious results. They convert their small garden into a farm with pigs and chickens running around to the horror of their immaculate, posh neighbour Margo. They grow their own crops. Barbara attempts to make her own clothes and tries to dye wool with nettles. I hope you don't have quite so many disastrous episodes Jo. Though it's good to have a sense of humour when it comes to 'doing it yourself', because inevitably things won't always turn out as you hope.

I found out from another blog that "Liebster" is the German word for friend or love. I've met some lovely friends here on blogger and want to send love to you all. The Liebster award is intended to bring more attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers. There are rules in accepting the award.
1. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2. Thank the giver and link back to them.
3. Choose five blogs which you would like to pass the award on to and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

As Jo mentioned, because it's a bit of a faff to accept with the rules and all, some folks choose not to. So no obligation at all. But I would like to share some blogs that I find inspiring and that brighten my day. So I'd like to pass the award to:

Thanks for all the time and effort you put into your blogs everyone x


  1. Thanks for the award Lorna, it's a great way to find new blogs and inspiration.

    I love the 'Good Life' and have the complete series on dvd.....it's hilarious.

    You need some stamina to write out all those Christmas cards for your little one's class mates....I remember it well!

  2. Thank you so much for the award Lorna. I do find it very hard to choose bloggers to pass awards on to, there's so many lovely ones out there, so I think I'll give it a miss, but thanks anyway :)

  3. Lily - with your long list of tasks to do I would hate to add to it with the blog award. I'm sure it's something that can wait until a quiet time in the new year.

    Serendipity - I agree. I'm astounded at how many incredibly professional blogs there are.

  4. Hey Lorna, thank you so much for the award...
    So sweet and kind of you.
    How do I copy and paste the award on my blog?
    Let me know and I will do the same.

  5. I have emailed the jpeg to you so you just have to put it on your blog like an image. Let me know if you have further problems x

  6. I'm so pleased that you've accepted the award, though the posts can be so time consuming with all the links. You have nominated some blogs which I'm not familiar with so I'll certainly take a peek at those.

  7. You've won my giveaway, can you please let me have your address so that I can get the book out to you.

  8. Hey there. Thankyou. I will try and do this sometime over my holidays. (6 weeks off. yay)
    I must try and be a more consistent blogger!!

    You follow some lovely blogs - I look forward to having a browse soon.

    I hope all is well. xxx


I love to hear from you!
