Lovely Blog Award

I am an inherently lazy person, who for reasons that lay beyond my comprehension, seems to work hard? For instance I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by a really great storyteller and I have been sitting on it for a while, then I was nominated again by this great photographer I have found, I mean on WordPress, not found at the back of my sock draw or anything like that.

This reminded me that I have been nominated twice before and haven’t done anything about it. See the lazy bit now? As a result I have decided to  respond to all three. See where the hard work bit comes in? So thanks Patricia and my little librarian friend and I’ll do them in reverse order.

The Lovely Blog Award.

7 Random things about me.

1/ I don’t like Gnocchi, I will eat anything, really! But not that.

2/ I don’t like anyone to touch my toes. When I was kid my sisters used to hold me down while my mum cut my toenails.

3/ I’ve lived in a lot of places, too many to mention.

4/ I once dreamt that I was reading and I needed to sleep so I woke  myself up looking for my bookmark.

5/ When I was a kid I was frightened of the Red Indian Native American that lived in our airing cupboard.

6/ I wrote my first short story when I was forty-five, it was published straight away and it’s been downhill since then 😉

7/ I wish my guitars were not the most important things in my life and so  does my wife ;-)I was joking about the guitar thing, (just in case you-know-who reads this)

My nominations for this award are as follows. As I have two of these to do then I shall most likely fit everyone in at some stage, except as he is Blog Award Free Zone 😉

1/ Recently discovered but a great source for the current election.

2/  I find what this guy has to say really interesting.

3/ For making me smile and think.

4/ I guess you could say it does what it says on the tin.

5/ I just love this blog

Pause for a moment; you can see why I don’t do a critique page can’t you?

6/ There is a lot of stuff here I like the variation, thanks Layton.

7/ Lovely tales from Kate

8/ Susan’s stories and musings are great.

9/ There’s a great zest of life here, thanks Lis.

10/ Loads of stuff here, you’ll never get bored.

Pause, gee this is hard work, I have now decided to go down the list of most commented because I think I am losing the will to live 😉

11/ If you don’t read anything else read

12/ Ah lovely Penny, go and take a look for yourself.

13/ A very brave woman go say hello, interesting stuff.

14/ I like Bob’s attitude.

15/ This young lady has a lot to say, ha, and it’s very well said.

I have now run out of time so if you are not here please don’t be upset, I’ll get you on the next one and I’ve probably done you a favour. 😉

  1. Dear Charlie,
    You are just too kind.

    Love, Lis

    Congratulations Charlie on your Award, Thank you for the nomination, and your lovely words about me. And I know a little bit more about you too. I really like your thoughts about your dream with the bookmark, lol. I plan to check out a few of those you nominated, thank you again for the nomination, Penny 🙂


  3. Congratulations and thank you Charlie for including me in your list of nominations. I am new to being a more serious blogger and didn’t know about awards much less know there are rules? I don’t always do well with rules but I am honoured you mentioned me so if someone directs me to what I am to do next I would appreciate it. It sounds as though a nominee must list random things about oneself. I have exposed most my life on my blog so I think I should spare everyone that list. I do want to thank you for the list of your favourite blogs however as I have been busy most the day reading and responding to several. Keep up the good work so that the rest of us can continue to follow and learn.


    • Hi Layton, I forgot to include the rules! but you have the general idea, 7 random things and nominate other bloggers, Patricia did 12 I did 15, but you can do whatever you like. There are rules and then there are rules LOL. Some people say thanks and do nothing and to be quite honest it is a lot of work, I’m still on holiday otherwise I may not have done it. Its a way of passing on blogs. Thanks for commenting, nice that we are all still learning.

    Once again, you made me smile, giggle, and laugh out loud. That’s “LOL” for those more acclimated to those abbreviations we see everywhere nowadays. I like how you put this together, I got the “Indian in the cupboard” reference, I can relate to “don’t touch my toes, ” and your straightforwardness. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for nominating me for the everso coveted and prestigious “Lovely Blog Award.” You made my day, and most of all, you tuned me into others’ blogs, which I will investigate and read, which will lead me towards a more well-rounded life, indeed. 🙂 Thank you again!


  5. Soooo glad you enjoyed it Susan, hope we all have many days like these unlike the Elbow song ha. 😉

    Thanks for mentioning me. Not quite sure what to do about that…. from the above post..Elbow huh? Man we have way too much in common. My roots are Scotch/Irish, maybe we are distant cousins, LoL.

    Hey Charlie. Thanks for the non-nul-nil-nomination which I really appreciate as you remembered.
    I have not been over your way for a while so I’ll have a look around while I am here. Take care. Ralph


  9. It’s so kind of you to ‘follow’ me – thank you very much. And I’ll be back soon to read some more …:)
    Congrats on the awards!
