Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

11 May

very inspiring award

A huge big thank you to Julie at  for nominating our blog for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  I’m new to the Blogging community and didn’t realise there was such an award.  I was so thrilled to see the message from Julie.  When I told my oldest daughter (12), her response was “yours?”   When the shock of being nominated finally sunk in we both danced around the kitchen singing “I’ve been nominated, nominated, nominated”.  So to Julie, thank you so much.  It is a real honour and I feel very privileged that you thought of us.


The rules of accepting the Very Inspiring Blogger Award are:

1.  Display the Award Certificate on your website.

2.  Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award.

3.  Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.

4.  Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.

7 Interesting things about us. 

1.  We traveled around Australia for nearly 3 years when our two daughters were young.  Our son missed out!

2.  My husband, eldest daughter and myself are red belts in karate.

3.  I believe in angels.

4.  My husband and three children are proud of their Aboriginal heritage.

5.  I enjoy being crafty, things like crocheting, sewing and beading all make me feel relaxed.

6. I am a crazy NRL football fan.  I support all 3 of the Queensland teams, Broncos, Cowboys, and Titans and of course the Queensland Maroons in State of Origin games!

7.  I home schooled my eldest daughter grade 1 while we were traveling.
