Honest Scrap Award!



I have been given this award by Tania at Out Back. What a fun award. Thank you Tania, I appreciate it. I'm sorry it has taken so long to finish my post, or choose who to pass it onto. I am very happy with who I chose.

To keep this award, I must complete the following:
1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award
2) Share 10 honest things about yourself
3)Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design or those that have encouraged me
4) Tell those 7 people they have been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it.

Here are 10 honest things about me.

1. When I look at real estate sites I have a thing for the houses that need work, I think I can see the life that used to be lived in them

2. I am not really sure how to drive an automatic car, have realised that may be just as big a disadvantage

3. Have trouble getting rid of things that are familiar when decluttering

4. My favourite TV channel is the Lifestyle Channel

5. I love eating lychees, prefer cold, which is strange as I don't insist on things being cold usually

6. I am really really into tea light candles

7. I can carry in a very large, or rather, very high folded basket of washing from the line, packed just as high again from memory

8. Thinking about my eldest child and I can cry very easily, hopefully I won't disgrace myself at his graduation

9. If I was to travel I think it would be to the Laura Ingalls Wilder sites in the US

10. What I wanted to be when I grew up as a little girl? A Primary School teacher.


Seven blogs brilliant in content and/or design or those that have encouraged me:

1. A Wise Woman Builds Her Home (recommended to me by this post at A Collection of Days
2. A thousand words... and then some
3. Diary of a Stay at Home Mom
4. GILLYBEAN
5. Gobbler's Run
6. Hill upon hill
7. Mom's Musings

Thank you, Linda, so much! I will try to do this post by the end of the week.

Let's see...
#2 amazes me! Usually, people are nervous about driving a manual transmission car. Don't worry; you'll do no harm constantly trying to depress the clutch pedal when you drive automatic!

#3 is true of me as well. Sometimes my older children will clean up for me and tell me, "Don't look, Mom!"

#5 I have never tasted lychees.

#9 Please check out a book by Ralph Moody, such as Little Britches. He writes similar stories of pioneering childhood, from a little boy's perspective. I think you will enjoy those stories!

Hope you have a lovely day. :)

You are welcome Amy.

You are also welcome Joyce. I think another person suggested Ralph to me also a little while back. They don't have it at the library. I could check again. I know I hope to put in another order with the Christian bookshop Koorong again in the next six months.

Oh thankyou so much, it has been nice revisiting you. You were one of the first friends I met when I started my blog almost a year ago. I have chatted about this today on my blog.....

Oh I would love the luxury of sitting and thinking of these categories.....
