Irresistibly Sweet - There Must Be Some Mistake

‘Irresistibly Sweet?’ Me? It must be a mistake

Irresistibly sweet are not words that I would use to describe myself but Karen S has decided that I should have an Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Karen and I have been commenting on each others’ blogs for sometime now and especially on Carmi’s thematic photographic and Alan Burnett’s Sepia Saturday challenges.

Of course there are ‘rules’ to accepting this award – I have to tell you seven things about me and, the hardest thing, is to offer the award also to seven other blogs. How do I chose seven out of the 130 or so I follow.

Here’s the seven boring ‘Me’ things.

  1. One day I would just once like to get a hole in one!
  2.  One day I would like fast broadband to reach our village
  3.  As a sports fan way past my playing prime I just wish that the major sports were free to view on TV as they used to be.
  4.  I’d just love it if some of my photographs would be published in mainstream magazines.
  5.  I wish someone would do my garden and paint my house.
  6.  I wish my right arm was stronger so that I could throw a tennis ball for hours as Lily, my daughter’s dog, wants me too.
  7.  Here’s wishing health and happiness to you all

    And now the seven for whom I have drawn the short straw and ladies you have to visit my blog to get your award:
  1. Little Nell at
  2.  Sue at
  3.  Erana at
  4.  Marie at
  5.  Shelly at
  6.   Kathy at
  7.   Elizabeth at

  I hope you enjoy your award. Thanks again Karen for mine – I’ve survived the poisoned chalice!

Well the award graphic looks extremely sweet and good to eat. Congrats on the award.

Aww Bob how lovely for you, and me I think! I’m not quite sure what to do with these award thingies. I have three languishing on my desktop until I decide where I’m supposed to put them on my blog. They all seem to want me to impart some facts about myself that I have hitherto kept as dark secrets. I am filled with trepidation, whilst at the same time I am most humby grateful for your support.

Congratulations, Mr Irresistibly Sweet, but I can't help noticing that all your 7 points are wishes for something better. Just thought I'd mention it.

Rosalind; at my age I don't want things to get worse!

Oh you are welcome and it's just great to have met you here as one of my favorite bloggers to follow...and I just know your outstanding photos will take you where ever you want them! The best thing about these awards is reading little bits about the person you gave it to! May all your wishes come true!
