Three Day Quote Challenge Day Three

Go Confidently In The Direction Of Your Dreams, Live The Life You Have Always Imagined. This was a present from my mum and dad last Christmas and it’s on the wall by the other side of my bed. I look at it often and it directly represents where I am at in my life.

Create The Life You Love.
Create The Life You Love. This is in front of my TV and I can see it every day to motivate and inspire me. I don’t hardly ever watch TV these days, so it’s perfectly placed in my viewing range. I bought it as an early Valentine’s Day present for myself this year.

“Defy normal, throw away the rule book and create your own.”
Thanks once again to my long term blogging friend danbalva for nominating me for this awesome 3 day Quote challenge! This is day two, and the quote above was at a business show I went to in London, in front of their luggage storage area. Check Dan’s awesome blog out at
These are the Rules for this award:
  • Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
  • Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.

4 others I nominated – 3 and a bonus nominee, can’t do this challenge because of the time it takes, I understand. Because I am late with this post due to my time being massively stretched, if any of the nominees in this post or any previous post, can’t take up the challenge, that is fine, but I won’t be nominating anyone else, because I have a back log of posts that I need to get out to you asap and a pile up of work.

Here are my nominees for today: This lady was a former student of mine and has an amazing blog, check it out. Ute makes every day a smiley day – check out her inspirational blog. Al is inspirational and a fantastic photographer, check out his blog. Kim, or Courtney as you may know her, is a writer too. Enjoy checking out her blog.

I told one of my bloggers I would ask someone else to do her quote challenge, hence why there is 4 that I nominated today. It’s coming up to 4am and I am going to call it a night for tonight; I have my day job in just a few hours time and I have to prepare for Snow’s birthday later today, that is tomorrow (15th of October); she will be a big 3 years old, and we need to have a piggy party and record a video for you.






Until next time – stay quirky and write soon.

Hi Everyone

Thanks to Rohan from for nominating me for the Illuminating Blogger Award! His blog is exceptionally great, just like him, so please check it out.

Illuminating Blogger Award

As always with any blog award, there are rules:

In order to acknowledge this award, you need to post the badge on your blog, share a few words about yourself and pass on the award to 5 other bloggers.

Normally I am not lost for words but being asked to share just a few, is difficult. Ohh! I just did it.

And those who I want to illuminate with this award are:

Congratulations to all of you. Your words are inspirational and your kindness is appreciated.

Thanks to everyone who follows my blog, you are the best blogger friends that anyone could wish for.
