An Award

I have received this Honest Scrap Award from Jillian over at Homeschooling4Christ

Thank you so much Jillian.

To keep this award, I must complete the following:
1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award
2) Share 10 honest things about yourself
3)Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design or those that have encouraged me
4) Tell those 7 people they have been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it.

Here are 10 Honest things about me:

1. The most important people in my life are my family

2. I am a shy person by nature and tend not to socialise a great deal

3. At the moment I am feeling overwhelmed by all the information about the Diploma

4. My favourite meal is anything that my mother cooks when we are down there, I just love her cooking, it has lots of flavour

5. I have lived all my life in the country and wouldn't change it for city life ever. I long to live where there is a lot more rain, less dust, lush greenery and white beaches

6. I love the Johnny Cash movie Walk the Line because he proved it is possible to turn your life around and become a better person, and he did, with the help of June Carter and God

7. I am a very emotional person and take offense easily. I cry when I see other people cry, even on the soapies!

8. I would love to go on a cruise to Fiji and Vanuatu

9. My most neglected chore would have to be my windows. I am seriously thinking of getting a window cleaner around for the simple reason I have so many little squares and they take so long to do.

10. I prefer the cooler weather as our summers can be so hot and dusty; it's nice to not have to dust every day. Where I live there is not much rain so we don't ever get tired of it.

My 7 recipients are:

Narelle @ Moments for Mum

Kate @ Tatersmama's take on things

Joolz @ Simply Joolz

Caroline @ The Simple Things

Linda @ Remote Treechanger

Granny @ Granny's garden

Mandy @ The Old Dairy


  1. Thanks Tania!
    I'll have to think of some things to share about myself :)

  2. Hi Tania,
    You're very welcome! I am also including an image of the Honest Scrap award, just in case you want to include it in your sidebar.

    It is:

    We have lived in a lot of different places, but the place where my childrens' asthma is best is in the dry areas, so here we are. I don't like the dust much either, but the coastal climate makes all of our asthma much worse.

    I tend to be shy by nature, too. It's easier on the internet, though.

    Take the Diploma one step at a time. I remember when we started learning music - I looked at it and thought, "Aargh, what am I doing? This is so hard." Then, when I looked at only the first lesson, it became much easier, and that has been my philosophy ever since. Don't ever look more than one lesson ahead - it makes it more achievable. I hope that makes sense.

    Have a wonderful week.

  3. Thanks Tania. I have just arrived back from hols. to find your award- lovely thankyou. Will have to think of somethings about myself now.

  4. Thank you Tania. It is a nice award. Sounds like a bit of fun for me too.

  5. I finally caught up on my last award, and I know you show gratitude so have nominated you.

    Thank you so much for inspiring me to finish the post!

  6. Thanks for the award Tanya, I will get around to posting it later in the week....

  7. Hi Tania

    Thanks for the award - I will get to it shortly. I'm afraid June 30th has taken up a bit of my time this past week, reconciling wages etc. Me and the girls are off to Warrnambool in Vic for a bit of winter clothes buying tomorrow. I signed up for Rhonda Jeans Biggest Table Home Audit forum but have fallen flat so far. I will pull out I think and maybe post a few items that I am doing okay with. Being busy at work each day just doesn't suit the green frugal lifestyle at the moment. I do try but it is hard. But this week is definitely not a NO SPEND week.

    Cheers - Joolz

  8. great info Tania, stuff I didn't know about you.

    Just wanted to pop in and send you cyber hugs and love.
