My friend, Claudia, at The Story, has very kindly given me an Award which I haven't actually seen before, and I thank her so much for thinking of me. It's called The Sunshine Award. I'm sure that Claudia would appreciate it if you popped over to say hi. She has recently suffered an unfortunate accident whilst on an aeroplane, in that a lady sitting behind her in the plane was putting something in the overhead locker, and her bag dropped right onto poor Claudia's head. She has been to the doctor and has a mild swelling on the brain, and has to take plenty of rest. Claudia has been suffering from horrendous headaches ever since, and I am sure that we all hope that she will soon be fully recovered.
To take advantage of this Award, I have to tell you something about myself. Well, in actual fact, I do have something quite funny (well, I thought it was funny!) that happened to me only yesterday.
An envelope arrived in the post addressed to myself and hubby, and I could see that it was a card. When I opened it, this is what I found -
It was from the Head of Fundraising at the Children's Hospice South West, for which I do voluntary work. Now then, she knows me very well, but, for some strange reason, she has sent me this card. I'm sure you will all know that a Golden Wedding Anniversary represents 50 years of marriage so, even if I had got married at 20, that would make me 70 right now!!
My daughter said, "well, there you are mum. Perhaps you don't look as good as you thought you did!!"
I have e-mailed this kind lady (!), thanking her for the thought, and I am awaiting her reply, which should be interesting. It really is such a strange incident, because our Anniversary isn't until the end of the year anyway, so where this has come from, goodness only knows.
I have to pass on this Award to 5 people, and I would like to give it to some new people, and these are :
dubgirl at Dreaming of A Cottage by the Sea.
Sush at First Do No Harm.
Orchid at Orchid's Daily Voice.
Susan at My Texas Gardens.
I can promise you that all of these blogs are absolutely delightful.
Now, as you know, I shouldn't even be here, so I am going to scoot!!
I'm so sorry, I forgot to tell you about the Charity Cream Tea that we held here on Tuesday afternoon, and some of you very kindly asked how it went. Well, we woke up in the morning to heavy rain (yes, again!!), but by the afternoon, it had cleared and we had sunshine for the rest of the day. Lots of people came along to support us and we raised just over £300, which we were very pleased with. We had a trio of musicians playing in the garden, and it all went very well. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take any photos, as I was too busy making cups of tea and spreading the scones with the strawberry jam and delicious Devon clotted cream!
