I'm panicking - my fear of living up to the expectations of other people rears its head. Julie nominated me for a thinking blogger award.
Now I need to come up with something really insightful to justify it..... Nope, nothing coming. Must be stage fright.
It reminds me of a moment a few years ago, when someone was thanking me for a birthday present she had really enjoyed.
Her: 'You always manage to find the most amazing and thoughtful presents'.
Me: 'Oh, thanks'
Me (thinking): 'Oh s****, no pressure next time then'
What an ungrateful person I am - just can't accept a compliment gracefully!
But sometimes I do get the gift just right. Like this little present I bought our hallway last week.
These wonderful prints (badly framed with no mats yet - sorry) came from A to Z. Their etsy shop has lots of goodies in. And I am getting so much pleasure from the fact that I 'know' the creator.
Now I think I'm meant to nominate 5 other blogs which make me think. But I'm coming to this party a bit late and heaps of you folks I really love have already been nominated. So instead, a challenge. To find 5 new blogs for yourself and see if any of them make you think.
If you're feeling lazy, the 5 newest subscriptions on my bloglines feed are:
