An Award and A Balloon

Two postings in one day?  "Good gracious" I can hear you all say.  Checking up on comments received lately (I do love to receive your comments) I noticed that Jaclyn of ''My Hook on Life' has nominated me for an award.  How amazing is that?  I am deeply honoured and undeserving of the award since I don't usually post very often here (I do have two other blogs - see right side panel, and I run my village Garden Club Blog - here)   Thank you so very much Jaclyn.

So, in order to justify this award I have to tell you seven things about myself:-

1 I have two other blogs : and
2 I am Show Secretary of my Village Gardening Club
3 I run the Gardening Club Blog (see above)
4 I am a bit of a technophobic and love all things computer.
5 In September I am going to Ireland to meet my sister from Australia there.
6 If you have looked at my Pelargonium Blog you will see that I love the Pelargonium family of plants
7 I got back into crochet through Ali here.  I in turn got my friend in California 'hooked' on crochet, and she   encouraged her friend to take up her hook again.

Now to nominate up to 15 favourite blogs for the award.
Ali at Macscrochet.blogspot
Kirsty at Handmade by Kirsty
Jacquie at
SJ Scott at

I will leave a note on each of their blogs telling of the award.

Now for the balloon.   When I got up this morning I could not help but see a huge balloon low in the sky over the property opposite.  I grabbed my camera for a shot:

When I came out from the shower I noticed the balloon was down on the Village Green so I quickly put on :some clothes,grabbed the camera again and ran up to the green.  This is what I saw

An exciting few minutes before breakfast!
