I am so grateful to Taylor from Peas Romaine Calm for nominating me for this award. Taylor, thank you.  Just knowing how much you appreciate my blog, means so much. Taylor’s blog is amazing, with simple everyday recipes, which I love.  The ingredients are ‘no fuss’ ingredients which are easily accessable even to me, here in South Africa. Please pop over to Taylor’s blog and say Hi, I am sure she would love to hear from you.

Five Facts About Me:

Born and bred in Durban

I was born in Parklands Nursing Home, and I gave birth to both my daughters in Parklands Nursing Home.

The ward I was in after giving birth on both occasions was Ward C bed 5 (now that was a co-incidence)

Since my mom passed, I wear my mom’s wedding ring and engagement ring on my right hand.  It is a little part of my mom and dad with me always.

I got my ears pierced when I was thirteen 🙂 .

My Nominees are:

Again, this is the worst part, and I don’t mean to single out anyone, as I truly love all the blogs I follow… I have tried to nominate blogs that may not have received this particular award.

The Richmond Avenue

North Loves South

Home, Hugs and Huskies

And, for the next three nominees, I am so sorry but my computer was having a moment, in fact a massive moment, and decided to play up!  It is temperamental, but really, it just refused ‘to link’ properly !!!


Taylor, once again, Thank You !!!

A massive Thank You, to Terry for this amazing nomination.  I really am humbled and so appreciative of it.  Terry’s blog is awesome, and a blog I look forward to reading everyday.  It is authentic and it is about Terry’s life, the good and the bad.  Nothing is sugar-coated, and he tells it as it is.

Seven Facts About Me:

I am seriously running out of Facts About Me !  (Lol)

I would love to learn to ride a motor bike, and have a road bike.

I would like to do a bit of travelling but then also, I don’t want to leave my dogs and cats for any length of time 😦 .

The first two dogs I remember as a child that we had, their names were Dot and Dash 🙂 .

I can’t stand it when people talk with their mouth’s full of food !

I do not like people chewing gum, ‘like a cow’ (as my mom always said).  Keep the mouth closed, and then all is good.

My daughters are 10 1/2 months apart in age. (Irish Twins)

My Nominees are:

(Again, this is not my favourite part.  Please know that I do not mean to single anyone out, as I truly love each and every blog I follow.  I have tried to find blogs which have possibly not received this award before.)

Apologies again….computer playing up…so frustrating !!!



Thanks again Terry 🙂

  1. Another two well deserved awards, Lynne. Well done. You’re getting quite a collection! t’s funny, but my first two children were born in the same bed in the same ward. 🙂 I agree with you about finding nominees for any of the awards. It’s always the worst part, and usually takes me ages!
