MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award


I must thank A Floating Speck for nominating me for this award – please go and visit her blog for emotive poetry and evocative pictures…

If you have been nominated for the MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award and choose to accept, write a blog post about the MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award in which you:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog. Take a moment to positively promote the person who nominated you.

2. Display the award on your blog by adding it to your post and/or displaying it using a widget on your page (Save the image to your computer and upload it to your blog post).. Don’t forget to use the tag #MyUltraAward when you make your post!

3. Answer the following MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award questions.


What is your name?


Where are you from?


How long have you been blogging and why did you start?

26th March 2016 – I used to write a lot when I was younger, but, you know, life happens and I lost confidence in myself… to cut a long story short, my younger son is friends with a wonderful man, who has been his mentor and guide. He’s involved with Copper Staple, an independent online publishing co. I asked him whether he thought I could write something for it… and he said yes. The man who said I can. Also my son was writing typing a letter for me on the laptop – I’d hurt my elbow and couldn’t grip a pen (I smoke with the left hand – ha ha!) and he was laughing aloud as I dictated. He said I should start a blog, as did his lovely crystal lady Lizian – whose stones  and insights feature in some of my posts. Long answer, I’m afraid, but there it is, a combination of three people, who I must always thank for their support and encouragement.

What are you most proud of?

My sons. 
What are your blogging goals?

To entertain, make people look again at something in a different light and perhaps even inform a little…
How do you spend your free time?

Generally just faffing about… dusting crystals, ironing, reading, writing, feeding my cats… oh dear that’s not very exciting ! Sorry!

    1. Lol! I was hoping that little fact would pass people by…do you remember the fashion for burgundy hair in the 80’s? Well, some friends and I wanted to be on trend…they all had naturally dark hair…I was quite blonde…till it went pink!

  2. Partly why I never tried colouring mine. I wasn’t keen on red but figured it was better than green! Did you keep it? Are there pictures?

      1. I assumed it was to do with the way they stick their heads out or eat? Kids are often quite literal with their pet names, no? Our tortoise was ‘Leaky’. No imagination required there!

      2. Could have been, I suppose..I never meant to have two either. I was playing with one in the back garden (well, prodding it..) when my father came marching round clutching the other one and telling me to keep an eye on my pets as he’d just found it wandering along the road!

  3. Lol! We had a fire at work caused by a jacket spud in a malfunctioning microwave a few years ago. Fire brigade, the works. Take care out there!
