Just A Little Candy Winner and an Award.

Firstly today, a big Thank You to everyone who entered my little candy. Sadly there can be only one winner for this candy and Mr Random.Org did his job this morning and picked.....

Congratulations Mandy, if you can please EMAIL ME with your postal address and I'll get these popped in the mail on Monday.

Last week I received a very sweet award off the sweetest lady in blogland - Shirley. More commonly known as Nannieflash. I know that Shirley knows lots of lovely bloggers so it's an extra special treat that Shirley chose to pass this on to me.

Now I have to tell you 3 sweet things that have happened to me. Now this is hard to do as I have lots of sweet things that have happened to me.
1. The very sweetest thing has to be my lovely boy. I loves him to the moon and back, and as I type this I am eagerly awaiting his return from the school skiing trip to Austria. There will be big hugs this afternoon, like it or not. Yes I will like it and Hal will probably not! But I WILL be having big hugs - or else there will be NO special meal for him! It's called blackmail, but I'm fine with it.

2. I have the sweetest husband ever. I loves him to the moon and back too. Oh he can be a grumpy old man sometimes, but he's MY grumpy old man, and I shall be forever in debt to my old friend Vicky who introduced us to each other more than 20 years ago. He makes me laugh, he makes me cry, occasionally he makes me want to throttle him! But most of all he makes me happy, comfortable and content.
(And he does give me nice, fat wads of cash for the craft show ha!)

3.Lastly, sweet things happen to me regularly from the lots of lovely friends I've made in blogland. These things vary from a phone call, a text, an email, a card in the post, a crafty parcel in the post, and lots of lovely comments. All these things are sweet and all are appreciated and brighten my day....thank you to all my friends and visitors.

Now the hardest part of this is to pass it on to three other sweet bloggers. But I know so many sweet people!
So in no particular order I would like to pass this on to:
Amanda from Cards,cats and copics. Amanda is the sweetest gal ever (if a little nutty around the edges!) She always makes me laugh and she also makes the most beautiful cards...go pay her a visit!
Maria from Me, myself and scrapping. Maria is a Sugar Bowl Sweetie and loves sweets too!
Donalda from Enjoying the journey. Donalda is one of life's sweet souls.. She always has a kind word for everyone.
Ok, now I'm off to get ready for the return of my boy yippee!! And then I'll be loading and re-loading the washing machine booooo!
Ooops nearly forgot to say...the Pay-it-forward challenge, if Kim and Sharra aka Sharrahug could please EMAIL ME with your address's so I can post off your handmade something - when I've made it!

Thanks for looking
Love Elaine xxx
