Blog Awards: Past & New: Thank you Penny, Shirley and Elfie!

So sorry not to have blogged or done hardly any blog hopping, but we're still dog sitting! (Poor dogs!) and that's all we seem to be doing...walking dogs!
I'd love to thank Penny and Shirley for this Award. Please visit their lovely blogs! There's always something amazing going on! Don't forget to visit Penny's Challenge blog too!
I've been very naughty and not passing on my blog Awards for ages and seeing I'm here, Dog Sitting, and not at home, missing my craft room (actually hubby says it's hard to tell, the only difference is...there's a sofa bed in the room, nearly everything else is the same...paper everywhere, a couple of boxes of 'stuff', computer, printer (Hubby's sooo lovely, he went and got it for me!) the cat...yep... Frog the cat's here too! She spends most of her time under my desk were the computer is or on the bed, or wherever I am, so there's no difference there. Of course we can't let her out, the dogs would probably eat her! Now, there are loads of questions to go with the first two Awards and I have to answer them all! And tell you eight things about me...soI hope this counts if I just do this...So here we go...

Before I choose five (x 2 ) people to pass this Award on to, I'll do the next Award...(as that has questions too!)
This Award was also from Shirley (Sorry it's so late Shirley!) The rules in accepting this second Award are that you must give five things away about yourself (which you haven't already told) and then choose five more worthy recipients!
Right! Five things that I haven't already told you about me? Umm!
1) I was the Queen of Night in my first School Play, aged 5. The boy I was 'engaged' to also aged 5, gave me a brass curtain ring! and was The King of Night...he always had a runny nose, I wonder where he is now!!
2) I was so bad at needlework at school I was allowed to do art instead. Until we had a new teacher. I was then allowed to draw my own designs and match them up to suitable materials, I was then supposed to go on and make the clothes... yes... right.. moving on...
3) I have two gold fillings.
4) I used to collect match boxes. (I still have them! Most of them still have matches).
5) I find it very hard to throw anything away.

This Lovely Award is from Elfie and as far as I can tell, there are no questions needing answers!! (Yippee! I've run out of ideas, I'm going to have to start making something up!!)

I also want to add these lovely Awards below to this post too, which I received way back in September (The 'Honest Award' has 10 facts about you!) but I never got round to passing them
Please visit all these lovely blogs!

Sally H

Carol Anne
And last but not least Tany Sol (Sorry only just found a link)

Phew!!! That took ages, but I think I'm up to date now...just a few more names to add, and also more links as they didn't work! I hope all the links that are there work!! (and go to the right person!) I'm getting my paste and copying muddled! It's late! So I'll pop back here later to finish...meanwhile...please choose ANY one of the Awards above that you'd like, with a link back here!
Coming up next...a sneak peak of the next Quirky forum Challenge! I'm off to walk the dogs...fireworks seem to have stopped....Thank you so much for stopping by. Night!

  19. Congrats on all the awards Lynn!! You are so deserving!!! Thanks so much for thinking of me!!!

  20. Thank you for adding me to your pass-along list. I'm like lots of others in that it takes me awhile to get things done but eventually I do manage to accomplish something worthwhile. I really did LOL at your postings and hope I can come up with something as amusing when I post my award on my blog. I may have to do mine in stages. After the day I had at work today, my brain is too 'fried' to think up anything humorous. I'm confiscating the 'big hugs' award tonight as it's my VERY FIRST award since I started blogging. Thank you again for listing me and hopefully sending me some more 'friends not yet discovered'.
