  10. I really don't like doing these things...
I say this to myself every time but now I am making it official, I am not going to join the award giving anymore. Of course, I love receiving awards but then I get stressed out about the follow up post - hence taking me so long to reply to these then combining them. I have just spend well over an hour doing this post, time I could have used more wisely but then if I didn't do it I would feel guilty - no win situation. So, to save myself time and stress I will bow out gracefully now....


  1. Thanks for making our day!

    Allergic to lavender? Never heard of that one. I'd love to travel to every country, too. And interesting thoughts on the whole award business. I always love getting them, but passing them on is hard to do because there are too many good ones... :)

  2. hmmm allergic to lavender- I don't see aged care nurse as a possible career for you! ;P

    Do you eat sushi? I don't like blue fish but love it as sushi. Go figure!

    And I'm so lazy I did this award and didn't pass it on at all.

    Thanks for thinking of me though!

  3. lavender - makes me sneeze, stinky stuff!

    and no to sushi - I have tried it but don't like it, includes stinky crab, shrimp, lobster or any other fishy stuff!

  4. Wow, our first award, thank you! I'll add you to our list of members - when you do a "green" post don't forget to put TLBG in the title. Do feel free to take the TLBG button to put on your blog. And THANKS FOR JOINING IN!

  5. Hi Jo,

    thanks ever so much for the award (and for the one for thatlittlebitgreener)it really cheered me up :D thanks xx

  6. Lavender makes me sneeze and my nose itch, too!

  7. and I thought I was the only one! I went to Sapporo once for a work conference and the airport was filled with lavender, the area is famous for it and they were having some kind of festival, I got to the conference with big puffy eyes and a stream nose, everyone thought I was sick.


Thank you!
I love hearing from you and if you haven't joined us in Moms That Rock, come on over!
