Thank you very much, you guys! It was a lovely thing to see over the weekend when I looked at my blog and I was telling everyone who would listen πŸ˜€ I am very grateful, it is nice to know that others enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy posting to it.

So, as the rules suggests I shall post 7 things about myself (7? I’m not sure I’m quite that interesting!) and then nominate 15 other bloggers πŸ™‚

7 Things About Me:

1. My name is Mishka, named because my mum had a friend in school named that and she liked it.
2. I have diplomas in Animal Management and Horticulture.
3. I am a very keen gardener πŸ™‚
4. I have a rough collie called, Harliquin.

5. I could watch Seven Brides for Seven Brothers on non-stop loop, and could probably repeat the script by heart.
6. I’m a night owl, I hate going to bed, and if I could would never sleep again!
7. My favourite season is Spring πŸ™‚

So, now to the fun part! Below are my 15 nominees for the award (it was so hard to choose, I have so many I want to nominate!).

1. Aether
2. Alison Stanley
3. Melissa Barker Simpson
4. Ness Kingsley

Check them out, they are all great bloggers πŸ˜€ Each one has their own way of blogging, and I am always eager to read their new posts and writing.

Once again I want to thank Marc Gate, Kate Loveton, Chris Musgrave and Melissa Barker-Simpson for nominating me, the smile still hasn’t faded πŸ™‚
