Ooh check out my Shiney New Award!

Wow thank you Dottie for my lovely shiny award!

I have been a terrible blogger of late just too busy at work, not much of an excuse I know but spending so much time on the computer at work I haven’t had the enthusiasm to do much at home, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and I’ll be back to my old bloggy self very soon.

In accepting the lovely award there are 4 things that I have to do. They are as follows...

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

So click on the Stylish Blog Award to visit Dottie’s and have a read I promise it will bring a smile to your face, Dottie’s blog is ace).
