Award Night!

Wow!!!! A huge Thank you to Kate from A Year with Horses and Marissa from Tucker the Wunderkind. They bestowed upon me the honor of the Honest Scrap award! This award is for blogs that are honest and from the heart. Thank you!!!!!

I opened up my comments and read - You have an award on my blog - I was so excited!!!!! I quickly looked at their blogs and there it was!!!!! Then it was how do I accept this award? Luckily Marrisa is a very clever girl and explained this in her blog (the whole cutting, pasting and copying the picture!) I am really sorry but I have been playing around and looking at the help section and I still haven't figured it out - how to link my text to a website!!!!!!

When you recieve this award you are to bestow it upon 10 blogs (remember to tell them!) and tell your readers 10 things about yourself that they don't know. Well here it goes, 10 things you may not know about me -

  1. I am getting braver on the back of my husbands motorbike.
  2. I harrass Jack my beloved dog all the time - talk to him, wake him, kiss him, lie down next to him to look at him, lift his lips to look at his teeth, look closely at his paws, just generally gaze upon him all the time.
  3. I dream about the day my husband and I live on a hundred acres that we get to set up and we rescue horses and help wayward teenagers.
  4. I loved boarding school.
  5. I have a phobia of needles. I can give them to my horse (I don't enjoy it) but my husband has to come with me if I need a blood test!
  6. I can't touch raw meat. I eat meat - not a lot.
  7. I have a thing about food. Certain food can't touch (otherwise they contaminate eachother!), my weekend salad bread rolls must be made in a certain order, I hate trying new food, I hate any food with seeds ie tomatoes, cucumber, passionfruit, most fruit.
  8. I used to play the piano and flute - sometimes I miss it.
  9. The idea of traveling outside of Australia terrifies me but there are places I would love to go - Montanna, England, Germany, Canada.
  10. My Dad is slowly recovering from Lung Caner. Still having Chemo but it is shrinking!
Wow that was a lot harder than I thought!!!!! OK now I would like to bestow this award onto 10 blogs.
  1. Buckskin and Bay
  2. Diary of the Overanxious Horse Owner
  3. Elie and Werther
  4. From Heaven to Hell: Saving Argus
  5. The Eventing Percheron
  6. The Pioneer Woman
  7. Mugwump Chronicles
  8. Bakerella
  9. A year with Horses
  10. Tucker the Wunderkind
I am really sorry that I can't link these but you will find them on the list of Blogs I Follow! Well goodnight everyone, I am going to dream about my pony and my award!!!!!!

It's fun to read about you! To do a link, first you go to the thing you want to link to and highlight the address in your search bar, then copy it. Go back to your post, highlight the words you're linking to, then hit the little link button above the post text box - a fill in box will pop up, put your cursor there and hit copy. Presto, linkie!

You're very welcome! Glad I'm not the only girl will food issues. My bf says I'm the pickiest eater he's ever seen. He has a point... it's a rare day when I actually like everything in a meal. Unless it's a bowl of cereal, or pb&j. Now I have to know... do you eat Vegemite? During my year over there I could never quite acquire a taste for it. Oh, and I loved boarding school too!
