I got so excited...but it was short lived!!!!

Today I was very excited for two reasons. The first was that I have received yet another blog award.

blog award
This was an award sent to me by kella at Kellas musings on growing her own. It's sent to all those blogs that sparkle to her. I'm not entirely sure how my blog is sparkling as I seem to be doing an awful ot of moaning at the minute but I am very grateful and would like to forward this award too;

Ann's snap edit
Norfolk Kitchen

These are just a few of my favourite blogs and I would love for my readers to check them out...oh and please don't think if you aren't in the list I don't love your blog too...I am just trying to even out the awards that I send...I love each and everyone of the blogs that I follow.

The other reason I was so excited today was that whilst in 'Home Bargains' I picked up some asparagus for just £0.99. A great bargain and two different varieties...I also got some onion sets for the same price.

The bargains!!

I am really looking forward to growing asparagus even though it will be a couple of years before I benefit from it.
So why was my excitement so short lived???
By the time I got home from town we had snowdrops the size of 50pence pieces falling thick and fast.....AAAARRGGGHHHHH...When is it going to stop!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Very generous and far too kind of you, Tanya. But I AM touched.

  2. Well I can tell you why your blog is sparkling. It's because of the wonderful personality you put into it. I always make a point of stopping by to see what's new. I'm also very touched that you enjoy my blog enough to honor me with the award. Even though I've been so horrible about posting the ones I've received.

  3. Asparagus? Wow, I'd never seen the plant yet! I hope the snow end soon so you can start planting!

  4. You deserve this award very much. Thanks for passing it to me too.

    I don't think I have ever eaten asparagus. That's what happens in a family of picky eaters I guess. I've actually been wanting to give it a try.

  5. Thank you, Tanya. If there's any sparkle in my blog, I suspect you're the source. :)

  6. Congratulations on the award, Tanya. I hope the snow hasn't settled. We've had a few flurries over the last couple of days, but it hasn't laid thank goodness.

  7. Congrats on the award! Snow now reached us here in Lincolnshire, although it was forecast. Very frosty this morning. More cold weather forecast for the week ahead. Do you think spring has been cancelled?

  8. Congratulations on your award Tanya.

    Hope your snow has gone now. We had everything yesterday including fog, hailstones and sun!

    Good luck with your asparagus, it takes a few years to get a crop but really exciting when you do!


  9. Hi Tanya - Many Thanks for the award and congrats on yours too! I feel your pain re the snow, am sooooo fed up, just want to get planting.


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
