Thanks Claire for my award

The lovely Claire from Clairebears has given me this award

Part of accepting Claire's award is:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.

2. Share 8 things about yourself

3. Pass it on to 8 bloggers

4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award

So here we go:

1. I'm Mum to 5 gorgeous kids and 3 British Shorthair cats who are like mini 4 legged human beings!

2. I'm Nanna to 5 beautiful grandchildren who are the world to me - people used to tell me being a Nanna was the best thing but you really don't realise it until it happens.

3. I am terrified of birds - it's the flapping! My family are used to me around birds now and the kids or hubby will shoo away any pigeons in my path!!

4. I loved hitting 40 but I love 50 more - but don't like the things that go with it - grey hair and wrinkles and middle aged spread but love the self confidence I have now and the fact I have finally accepted my life for what it is.

5. I bit my nails all my life until I was 49 when I trained as a nail technician and started to do my own nails and now have my own nails for the first time in my life!

6. I am so proud of the fact that I managed to arrange for my husband to drive his beloved Ferrari for his 50th birthday last year. I always promised him he would one day and I delivered!

7. I feel blessed that all my children have grown into beautiful adults and I am very proud of them all, they are by far my best achievement in life.

8. I love America! We are going back for the 3rd time in April to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and will be there for a month this time. My husband would move there tomorrow if we could but we have to content ourselves with holidays, hopefully very long ones when he retires!!
