A kind award....

Well this is a surprise post I know! I said I would wait until next week to re open the pages of Jane's Journal but as I had a rather lovely surprise today I have decided to write this mini post. Thank you Teje for nominating me for the Stylish Blogger award. That is so kind.

To accept this award I needed to nominate 15 other blogs for it but as I only have a few blogs on my list as I am pretty new to blogging I will just ask all those who read my blog to accept it as well and pass it on!

There are 4 duties to perform to accept the award:


1. Thank and link back to person who awarded you- thank you Teje your blog is such a happy read. Please take the time to visit her.
2. Share 7 things about yourself- see below
3. Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered bloggers- please everyone take this and share ;0)
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award- I do hope your reading this means I have satisfied my duties!

So what I will do here is to share 7 very random things about me....

1. I have been a physiotherapist for 28 years and it is still a job I love. I am a musculo-skeletal specialist.
2. I keep fit by dancing, my Hb and I attend Ballroom and Latin dancing classes twice a week.
3. I ALWAYS cry when I watch sad or even very happy films.
4. I am a total romantic and luckily have been married for 29 years to a man I adore.
5. I walk rather than drive/bus etc anywhere I possibly can. I can walk for England and I walk very fast.
6. I only read fiction when I am on holiday and then I can read a book in a day.
7. I love spiders...I can happily move the biggest ones out of the bath etc to safety.

I had a wonderful Christmas and I really hope you all did too?
This is cheeky Billy already seated at the table on Christmas Day!

There are still the New Year celebrations to look forward too....have a great time and I will see you back here again next Thursday with my promised 1st giveaway.....don't miss it.

Thanks again Teje and see you all again next week.

Bye for now,
Jane x

  17. Oh how fun Jane, I can't imagine you liking spiders though! hehe. My hb and I were avid dancers prior to our auto accident and need to get back into that! It is fun and keeps you fit doesn't it!

  18. Hi Denise, yes I am very partial to spiders, such clever beasties!Dancing is such a great form of exercise, you don't realise until the next day that it works every bit of you! Hope you do get back to it. Happy New Year.
