Reasons to be cheerful

The very sweet Alison at Sweet Little Things has awarded me a Liebster Blog!!!!!

This means "beloved" I think, so how wonderful that my blog is being enjoyed (atleast by one person anyway!!! ) so Many Many Thanks to Alison for awarding it to me!
It is awarded to either recently opened blogs or blogs that don't have many followers, as a way of promoting their blogs - what a brilliant idea!

Now with this award comes some rules which are:-

1. Accept the award and write about it on your blog
2. Link a post to the actual blog that gave you the award
3. Pass the award on to three to five new blogs, informing them that you have done so

So, having ticked the box against rules 1 and 2, I now would like to pass the Liebster Award on to three lovely blogs that are not necessarily that new, but deserve far more visits and followers.
So, my three chosen blogs are:-

So congratulations to those three bloggers!  They are all great blogs and deserve a visit!


Daryl at Vermont Cottage is having a giveaway!!! A lovely tea towel from The Pear Tree!  You need to act quickly on this one as the draw day is Sunday, so pop over to Daryl's lovely blog to find out all about it.


The lemon tree has flowered!!!!

The blossom smells beautiful, almost like jasmine.

Anyone who read my posting on the lemon tree (see sidebar for older posts) will know how nervous I was on being given this lovely present, wondering whether it would survive.
But survive it has, even thrived!
With loads of blossom and new leaves which have been produced since its been here!!!!
Wonders will never cease!

And of course there are many more reasons to be cheerful despite the miserable wet weather, including today being the first day of half term!!! Yay, no school run for a week!!!!

Have a great weekend!!
