I received my first blog award!!

I opened my emails this morning and discovered I had received my first blog award from the lovely Marsha!!

The eight things that I am to share

1.  I am a Christian - my faith is very much  part of who I am.
2. I am very happily married, and have been for nearly 37 years to a man who still thinks I am the best thing to happen to him.
3. I love my family - adult children and grandchildren, who are very dear to me.
4. I am owned by an 11 year old cat who adores me.
5. I have recently discovered paper crafting, specifically card making, and love it.
6. I am still a keen gardener, but it now takes a lower priority.
7. Another passion of mine is lace making.
8. I am proud to call myself a Kiwi i.e. a New Zealander.

I am sending this award to:

Thanks so much for this award, Maxine. I loved reading more about you, esp. #2. I know what you mean and we've only been married less than half of your 37.
