About Me

NSW, Australia
I'm made it past 50! married for over half my life, have 3 kids all grown and I'm loving this part of my life.I was a nurse in my younger days but an unhealthy dose of rheumatoid arthritis put a damper on my career,so I'm at home with the internet.

Paying it Forward

The lovely Lyndylou over at The Giggle Fest sent me this award. It's a nice one, I think, as part of the rules are I get to pass to you some great blogs you might not have seen before .It's always so hard to choose, as everyone on my blog roll is worth reading,so I'll try to give you some that aren't already in the "circle".

Thanks heaps Lyndy for the award,I love these things.
Lyndylou's blog is great fun, she has a full on busy life, with a disabled child and a teen and writes with honesty and humour. I try never to miss a post. And she's in Scotland, so I read it with a Scottish accent.So if you haven't read her already go take a look,guarantee you'll be there a while.

a little sprite Her little corner of the blog is always a good read,mostly about whats happening in her life,but she can pop up with anything really.Lovely and helpful girl from the warmer bit of Australia.

Pat over at A view from the edge had a lovely blog.It's an entertaining blog of her travels across the USA in an RV with her hubby. The photos are great,with interesting architecture and unusual places they've visited. Definatly NOT like slide night with Uncle Fred! I'm always looking forward to the next installment.

Ami over at Ami.Mental was one of my first few followers ,always funny or caring comments and her blog is fun. Even when she writes about the crappy stuff that happens to her,she's funny.She is so good with kids ,she "gets" them. .....And they make for funny stories.

manders at I have a web page whoopdedoo is a great read .I haven't been there long ,so I'm dipping in and out of her old posts too. Her style is chatty and freewriting and fun.I enjoy reading what she writes. She only has 24 followers,beats me why.

bub at I'd like to hold a tarantula Widower with cats and scary hair! Always a fun read here.
This post made me laugh out loud if-sensitive-to-swearing-do-not-read

I hope you enjoy my choices.

Here are the rules:

Our bloggers give us a lot of opportunity for improving and growing our blogs,with their comments and helping us gain followers. Here is a way to Pay It Forward. When you have been given the Pay It Forward Award,put it in a post along with these rules, and find FIVE fellow bloggers to bestow it upon. Thank the person who awarded you, mention them in your post, along with a link to their blog, and a blurb about why you like it. Comment on their blog to let them know you are bestowing the award on them, and that they should do the same. Good Bloggers Pay It Forward!

And I've been tagged too,so more tomorrow.
