THE SECOND TAG
Yesterday mrsnesbitt tagged me as one of her 5 favourite blogs – how lovely.
Now I have to choose five, which is difficult because I have so many! Please don’t feel left out if I don’t choose you.
Queenie – my bestest friend in the whole world and she’s to blame for me blogging.
Annelisa – she is the most talented photographer and a beautiful person.
Cream – I love his tales about his restaurants and his doodles, yes I said doodles as in scribblings, drawings…..
Claire – affectionately known as Miss Whiplash.
Mist1 – because this is the funniest blog in the world. Not just her posts but her replies to comments. Be warned do not take a mouthful of fluid or food whilst reading – you will choke!!!
I hope you will join in, good luck choosing your five it’s really difficult.
