Inspiring blog award


Happy new year to you all, hopefully I will try and catch up blogging but before that I was amazed to find I’ve been nominated twice for a very inspiring bloggers award!
– steps forward, awaits for the applause to subside, clears throat-
Thank you

For my nominations. It’s lovely to think that my pondering has inspired others, I initially started blogging to help myself understand what I was dealing with, I’m so glad I did as when I read back over some of the earlier posts the emotions I felt at the time all return, they can still really hurt but the difference is now I’m in a different position mentally, I’m dealing with jakes transition, I’m grateful that at last he is happy and I am mostly grateful for the fact he still Is here and he had the courage to speak to me. I know not all have this, that does sadden me, but maybe my blog can show other parents who are struggling that it does get better, you can smile again. 


The rules of the award are;

1 thank the person who nominated you, display the award on your post.
2 list the award rules
3 state 7 random things about yourself
4 nominate other bloggers
5 contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated
6 proudly display the award logo on your blog either on a side bar, about page or a special award page

So 7 random things about me
1 I spent the first 11 years of my life living on a farm
2 I love animals and currently have 2 cats 1 dog and 2 budgies ( Yep I still have them)
3 At the age of 13 I was knocked over by a car travelling in excess of 30mph, on a zebra crossing whilst wearing roller skates- obviously I survived!
4 I love to read, many thrillers or crimes but I will give anything a go
5 I’ve run 5 marathons , 1 20 mile race and 6 half marathons, a couple of 10 mile races 1, 10k and a hand full of 5k. I’ve ran since I was 18 it’s part of me
6 I love reality TV, big brother is my favourite but you,name it I probably have watched it
7 From a very young age I wanted to join the police force but sadly back in the day there was a minimum height and being 5 ft I failed!


I would like to nominate the following bloggers, I’m always pleased when I see another update from theses particular people. I often wish I could give this blogger a hug and say it will be ok always up beat and has inspired me in many ways I feel she is still a lost soul and hopeful she is finding her feet dedication to his wife and I really love his life style and values another parent who is supporting their transgender son always an inspiration to me and some lovely pictures lily what can I say but I just adore your style of writing, I await your update, relish every word and then have to remind myself this is your life not a fictional novel.

    Aww you are so sweet. Thank you for the award! I am honored. Things are so crazy in my present life it is impossible to keep up with writing. I feel like a neglectful blogger.

  2. Claire, thank you so much for the nomination!!! I promise to pay it forward and nominate some inspiring blogs very soon! This journey that we are on with our kids is a very scary and sometimes lonely experience. I think it’s so important for us to share this part of ourselves so other parents know that they aren’t alone. 🙂
