My First Award

I am so pleased I have just received my first award from Sharon from The crafty Trundler. I now have to list my 5 current greatest obsessions and pass the Award on to some other lovely bloggers so here goes ...
1) Blogging of course - I am new to the world of blogging but love it. It can clearly become quite addictive but it is lovely to hear from other bloggers and get to know so many lovely and like minded people.
2)Car Boot Sales/Charity Shops - charity shops have always been a bit of an obsession but just lately I have been to quite a few car boot sales. I know some of my friends find me quite weird but I couldn't be happier than ambling around a boot sale on a sunny Sunday morning knowing that when I have completed my hunt for treasures I have a flask of coffee and croissants ready and waiting in the car. We usually enjoy sitting in the sunshine having breakfast and looking at my purchases.
3)Planning The Northampton Vintage and Homemade Fair- this has turned in to a bit of an obsession as it it entails far more work than Deb or I anticipated but it is still very exciting. I seem to be spending a lot of time planning and getting things ready and also worrying that no one will turn up ! For the time being it seems to have overtaken my previous big obsession of my Etsy shop.
4)Reading- I love reading but seem to have very little time and by the time I get in from work and catch up on jobs at home I am normally too tired to read. However just lately I have started to find time to read again and although I still love reading magazines like Period Living I have rediscovered the pleasure of reading a good novel and look forward to that bit of time before going to sleep when I can switch off and get lost in a good book.
5)Josh- Josh is my gorgeous dog and I can't imagine life without him. We have had him just over a year and he came from the Dog's Trust in Kenilworth. He is a black and white bearded collie cross with a border collie and very scruffy looking. When we first had him he was a bit of challenge and I spent the first few weeks in tears and desperately wanting to take him back. He had never lived in a house before and we think he came originally from a farm in Ireland. He was quite destructive and very dominant with me, I was actually quite scared of him. Now I am so pleased I stuck with him because I love him so much and he has made such a positive contribution to our lives. Most of his difficult behaviours have completely stopped and he is now just a loveable rogue who makes us laugh every day.

I am now passing on this lovely award to some of the wonderful blogs I enjoy reading...
