an unexpected award

Oh my goodness. How completely unexpected (but very gladly accepted!) a Best Blog Award from Maureen of the marvellous Allotment Heaven fame. I'm sorry I don't have a better prepared acceptance speech ready, but suffice to say it is a lovely surprise and I feel humbled to know that somebody out there takes the time to read my blog!

The idea is that by accepting the award you pass it on to 15 other people whose blogs you enjoy, and put a link to their blogs. I have chosen the 15 and hope they accept the award, but will understand if they don't as it isn't everyone's cup of tea.

If you accept the award and pass it on, don't forget to let the people you pass it on to know. And so, in no particular order, here are 15 blogs that inspire me:


  1. Hi Michelle, I am glad you accepted the award which you so deserve. Your allotment looks great, and your blog always interesting and newsy. I never used to get involved in these awards and things, but it is nice to be recognised and I now see that it's a good way to get the blog 'Out there'
    So I hope the link on my blog to yours gets you more readers, as they don't know what they are missing.
    Don't forget to put the award on your side bar so it's permanently on show.
    I love the idea of 'scraps in the compost bin' for your comments.

  2. Well done on getting the award, and thanks for passing it on and leaving a comment on my blog. I'll post and pass on the award very soon. Thanks again.

  3. Thank you so much. I will try to pass it on, but am currently at home nursing a cold and only logged onto laptop to let work know I won't be in tomorrow; off back to bed. Thanks for cheering me up. WM x

  4. Thank you so much for your kind nomination Michelle and raising awareness of my blog, it is most appreciated.

  5. Thank you everyone. I really do find all your blogs inspiring. WM, hope you feel better soon. Best wishes to you all. Michelle x

  6. Thanks for the award and spreading the word. Dave XXX
