This is my second nomination award today, and I honestly don’t know what to say apart from Thank You.
As for my personal paragraph:
In September 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Humphrey was small, treatable and curable, and sent to the great Petri Dish in the Lab on October 31st.
The kindness and support shown to me during that time by friends on the marina and fellow bloggers was amazing. I can never repay them. So Kate, Sci, Colin, Michael and Sarah to name just a few, you deserve this award too.
I also include here two complete strangers at the bus stop who held me while I cried having just been told I wouldn’t need chemo.
If anything I say or write brings comfort to anyone, I am truly blessed.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

I meant to nominate you, I was in a hurry and trying to remember everyone. You are one of my favorite bloggers! Glad someone did it .
Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoy my writings. I popped over to your site a little while ago, but had a few problems with likes and couldn’t find the follow! Just done it and rectified!! Hello!!!!!
Yay, thank you!
I love your paragraph.
thank you again. 🙂
You are welcome!
As you say, it is often those completely unexpected, random acts of kindness, such as the ladies at the bus stop, that really touch you. 🙂
They were angels when my Mum was not close by.
