Awards & Awards!

I am so delighted, I've received two fabby awards for my Blog.
A BIG thank you to Pat Newcombe, who by the way is a fabby writer and also lives on Lanzarote, for the Stylish Blogger Award.

The Rules for receiving the Stylish Blogger Award are:

2. Share 7 Things About Yourself.
3. Award the Blogs Who You Think Deserve This Award.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award.

Well before I announce my second award.... soooo exciting, here are the seven things you might not know about me:

1. I can not ballroom dance, so no chance of being invited on Strictly Come Dancing!

Janice Horton said...

Wow! I'm so excited! Thank you Pauline for my award - I'm VERY proud to be a Powerful Woman - and that's something I'm going to remember in my moments of weakness!!

Wendy Soliman said...

I'm overwhelmed. I haven't won anything since the high jump competition when I was nine years old and that doesn't really count because the girl who was bound to beat me hurt her ankle. Rumours that I kicked her are grossly exaggerated.
Thanks so much, Pauline. I treasure my award.

Nikki said...

Thank you so much!!! Wow I am speechless!!! x x x

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Congratulations on your awards and on rollerskating in so many places. I used to do more of that when I lived in town. Now I live out in the country and all the roads are rough, narrow and dangerously hilly. I'm not skilled enough to skate out here.

What a wonderful award you've come up the artwork - and might I add you've certainly picked some of the most powerful women writers I know. Very cool idea Pauline! Hope you have a great week! ~Janet~

Pauline Barclay said...

Hi Wendy, laugh at the thought tha you might have kick more awards for you! x

Hello Nikki, you're welcome. x

Hi Susan, thanks for stopping by and glad to you know you too are a fellow rollerblader. We certainly did plenty when we lived in flat as a pancake!

Hello Janet, a fabby lady called Deidra Eden-Coppel designs these fabby awards and I am so proud to have received one. Have a fabby day.

Clarissa Draper said...

Congrats on the award. I wouldn't feel bad about eating MacDonalds in Singapore, not sure I would know where else to eat.

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Clarissa thanks for stopping by. There are some fabby places to eat in Singapore, hence my shame for wolfing down a burger...laugh! x

Aguilar Elliot said...

power to the woman!

Talli Roland said...

Congrats on the awards, Pauline! Well deserved. :)

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Aguilar, thanks for stopping by and right on there!

Hi Talli, thanks, they are such a lovely surprise! :)

Rosalind Adam said...

And a more stylish blogger I've yet to meet! Congrats. How is it that you can rollerblade but you can't dance? Maybe you've never had the right instructor. I'm not very good at dancing but moving to music is good for the sole. ;-)

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Ros, at grammar school we were taught to ballroom dance. Still love my rollerblading though! Laugh! Also thanks for the lovely words... x

Helen said...

Gosh Pauline - I am so sorry, I missed your message so hadn't realised you'd passed this award on to me! Thank you!
It's lovely!

Nicole MacDonald said...

WOO! Now that has to be one of THE coolest awards ever :) Thank you!!
