Why, thank you!

So hot on the heels of being long listed, though unfortunately not short listed, for the Irish blog awards, your dear hostess (that’d be me then!) has be awarded a Stylish blog award from a fellow blogger who described it as…A truly professional, profound and philosophical blog by Lucy Pearce where she shares her 
dreams and insights to parenting with kindness and sustainability.”

Well, dear Child of the Nature Isle, all the way over in tropical Dominica, thank you very much. I am very touched by your words. 

The word is spreading on Dreaming Aloud and I am gathering new readers and followers by the day, which is wonderful. I am loving writing it. But I think my husband and friends are a bit bored hearing me natter on about it!! So you, dear reader, are what makes it worthwhile. I spend far too long a day watching the blogometer count go up and up and see who’s reading what and where. It is addictive!

So with the award comes an obligation to do a few things:

* Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award (CHECK)
* Share 7 things about yourself (COMING UP…)
* Award 10-15 blogs you feel deserve this award (I’M AWARE THAT SOME I LOVE MAY a) ALREADY HAVE THE AWARD b) NOT BE INTO THAT SORT OF THING (AHEM, DAVE!))
* Contact the bloggers and let them know about their award (WILL DO!)

So things about me….

1) I am not, contrary to what I told my husband when courting, part of the Spanish aristocracy.
2) I am however, part of the Pearce and Gavin bohemian dynasties of creative types.
3) I have lived in 16 houses in my life including lots in Ireland, the UK – Bristol, Dorset, Wiltshire, Cambridge, London – and Kyoto, Japan.
4) My children have long names: each have an “English” name, an Irish name, a soul/ hippy name and two surnames!
5) I am named after my grandmother – who I never met – but everyone says I am extremely like her: good cook, writer, academic, thinker, deeply interested in education… 
6) I live in a house which I drove past for years wanting to own, so am dead chuffed that we do now- all sorts of twists of fate helped it to happen!
7) We have a very tame robin in our garden who watches our every move. We call her 
Bernadette after the old woman who owned this house before us.

And blogs I love…(scuse the lack of style – html is cracking up – the gods of blogging are laughing right now!)

  • Dave is my real life pal. Dave is very funny. Dave is a very good writer. Dave gets embarrassed very easily. Dave is useless at promoting his own blog. So I shall do it for him. And watch him blush!

    Inspirational ideas for family life: craft, sewing, baking and joyous activities.

    Love her pictures. Love her insight. Love joy pockets. She has received a lot of awards before… and think she might not be accepting any more.
  • Oh man CJ is one feisty, stylish writer. And a radical homemaker
    to boot! Love her blog – topics and style – LOVE it!
