My First Award

No it's not a writing one! But it's fun, and sometimes we need just a little something that is fun and makes us feel happy.

Thanks to Lacey Devlin for awarding the Happy Cupcake Award for being a blogger that makes her happy!
This is exciting!

Okay, i need to list ten things that make me happy:
1. Writing - not such a hard one to guess huh!
2. Reading - has to have at least a bit of romance, because everyone deserves a bit of it.
3. My two gorgeous kids. Yes even if they and i've had a rotten day and we've crumbled and yelled and thrown tantrums. They still tell me they love me when i tuck them in at night!

4. Gerberas and Daisies. They are so simple and beautiful. I bought myself a bunch when we moved into the new house. No one else was going to, so why not!
5. Warm apple pie. With vanilla ice cream. Actually even cold is good :)
6. Catch ups with friends over coffee and cake while and kids run around screaming and we ignore them to gossip - bliss!!
7. Baking. The smell, the taste, the satisfaction of having made something with my hands. And it's so homey and yum.
8. Crafts. I guess i'm creative. Cross stitch, patchwork, cards, scrap booking, mosaics. I'll give it all a go and i love it! The kids seem to have pick up the gene too...
9. This is getting hard. So many things make me happy by to pick my top ten is so hard!
My new Two mornings a week totally dedicated to writing! Both kids at kindy. Not going to do housework. Just going to write. Perfect! Tomorrow is the first full morning - watch the word count bar creep up :)
10. My husband. He truely is wonderful. Wouldn't have married him (or fallen in love with him) otherwise. Though you can't choose who you fall in love with, it certainly helps when they turn out to be so great!

There. Now i have to choose ten blogs that make me happy. Because i'll admit i do waste time by reading other blogs too! They are helpful to my writing and/or are just great to read. Some have already been nominated by other blogs, but others are new.

The official rules are:

1. Copy the award image into a post
2. List 10 things that make you happy
3. Tag 10 bloggers who brighten your day.
4. Link to their blogs.
5. Notify the award recipients.
6. Award recipients link back to sender’s blog


  1. Thanks for the nomination, Kerrin! Love the pic of the flowers. :-)

  2. Fabulous list! Good luck tomorrow morning! My eyes are fixed on your progress bar :D

  3. Hey Kerrin, thanks for nominating me... Sally did too and I thought all I had to do was eat the cupcake!!

    Will have to do this in a couple of weeks as am currently on a screaming deadline and due to go off to the States with my best mate on one of our bi-annual roadtrips on Monday. But promise I will. Honest.
