  1. Congratulations on your award, thankyou so much for nominating me, I would nominate you but obviously I can't now xxx

  2. Thank you so much for the nomination Fiona, I'll be making a blog post shortly! :) xx

  3. Thank you for nominating me Lucy. I have done this once before but will try and do this one sometime in the next week. I apologise for not yet replying to your letter, I will attempt to find time very soon, not sure where all the days are going to at the moment. xx

  4. Hi Lucy, thank you for thinking of me to give me the nomination. I made a deal with myself when I started blogging 6 years ago that I wouldn't do the awards I did have a badge on my blog that I sadly had to delete. I just don't have the time these days. But I really appreciate you thinking of me and thank you. dee x
