Thank you so much for my Leibster Award! Here we have it with a slight twist.

Just as we were packing up to leave Spain I was so kindly nominated for the Leibster award by Jacqueline at
And Una at Great Balls Of Wool.
They both have lovely blogs and I pop in often

When I got home I was taken poorly then I suffered from an idiotic clicking finger which deleted my 50 something Blog List without my permission. Naughty finger.

Well pages moved on. I spent days looking for my favourite blogs and I felt that I had been so slow in acknowledging the lovely award my answers would be somewhat "old Hat"

So, I think awards are great fun and a way of learning a little bit more about each other here in Blogland.

I found some blocks just like these for William to play with and they got me thinking. A to Z all about me.
So hold your hats old and new and here we go!

A - I have been married to my lovely husband ANDY for 37 years! Phew we both need an award for that!
