    1. You are welcome Millie! I thought I had been following you – but found I wasn’t! But I know I had been reading your posts, so maybe I had clicked ‘unfollow’ accidentally. It’s easily done! Anyway, back on track now. Happy to be back in your Fanclub! 😁 x

      1. I always thought you were following me, but perhaps you weren’t. I know we’ve visited each other’s blogs so I didn’t think to check. Thank you, anyway. 🙂

  2. Ready for another award??? HAHA!! I nominated you for the “Real Inspiring Blogger Award!” YAY! 🎉The “to do” list for this award is pretty easy, you basically just pass the award on to ten of your favorite bloggers. 😘 The “logo” and cut’n’ paste directions are on my home page at the bottom if you’re interested. 👍

      1. HAHA!! I GET THAT!!!.. and you are so welcome!! 😜So guess what? (I’m learning something new every day) Yesterday I found out you can have “an award free” blog..It’s not like some special designation, you just mention it somewhere on your blog. I’m guessing there may be a lot of awards out there.. Or you can also just pick and choose which ones sound good to you. In the meantime, congratulations AND I’m so sorry? 😂

      1. Ha! I was just thinking that I won’t be able to match your verbal ability! However, I will give it my best shot! 😉

  3. Hi, Angela. I really enjoyed your post about writing – or rather, procratinating over it. So many writers have expressed similar feelings. I did a post about it myself sometime late last year. I see from this page that you’re new to writing, so I wish you well in whatever you want to achieve in that direction. I have to agree with you about Marmite – I couldn’t survive without it on my toast. As a mother of six (all well and truly grown up) children, I agree with your feelings on that score, too – despite loving them all to bits. And teaching’s an excellent career. I taught for many years. Now I write my books.
    I’ll look forward to reading more of your posts. 🙂

    1. Wow! Thank you so much Barbara! I actually have you on my list of people to nominate as I had been nominated by someone else, but was waiting for her to send me her questions etc. That’s lovely of you, thank you! And best of luck! x

    1. Thanks so much! I am comparably new to writing. Hoping to learn a lot from all the more seasoned writers around, and on the wonderful WWWB on facebook!

      Best Regards,

      Angela x
