    Blogger Recognition Award

    I was nominated by Marlena, a multi-tasking blogger, who likes to write posts from the life of an interracial family and talk about ‘the fusion of cultures, races, religions and everything that comes along with it’ in her words. Sorry Marlena, got a bit delayed in putting this up, but well here we go. My Blogging Journey I had an anonymous blog once which became pretty non-anon in the course of a few weeks and months. I still go back to it and read it once in a while and smile because I was silly and such a crabby old thing. The silly bit remains a part of me as it will till the…

    Mystery Blogger Award

    Hello my lovely people, How is your Saturday going? I am off to the former Roman town of Cirencester in Gloucestershire. It is a middling day and sauntering in a town sounds like a better idea than walk upon moorlands which we had been looking forward to, but then the blasted weather always keeps changing and the plans do too. I have been tagged by Cheila on the Mystery Blogger Award. Cheila is a Portuguese girl who lives with her partner and 2-year-old Rosa on the outskirts of Lisbon. Her blog is called Pink For Days. Don’t let the title mislead you. She is candid, humorous and she will get you thinking. Oh…
