No More Awards Thank You – Life Balance

I always wondered why fellow bloggers started declining awards as I was so excited to receive my first two: One Lovely Blog Award  and The Addictive Blog Award.

However, in trying to balance blogging, snapping, flying, cooking, work, exercise and all the other things life throws my way; I have not honoured three further awards from the kind persons below:

I therefore have to respectfully decline these awards, but nevertheless thank all three bloggers for their nominations.

Please visit their blogs as they are contributors and team-players indeed!

I have also respectfully declined other awards and will continue to do so.

Hopefully I do not offend any person who kindly bestowed an award with the best of intentions.
