My First Blog Award

I started this blog as a way of getting things out.  I am one of those people who hold everything in.   I am a very private person and find it difficult to talk about my thoughts and feelings.  After finding a blog from facebook and following that for a while I soon learned of many other blogs that I wanted to follow.  Blogs that make me feel normal.  I am not the only one in this world suffering and in pain.  I never believed anyone would read my words and here I am with my first blogger award.

So here goes  
The Rules:
1.) Thank and Link back to the blog that gave you your award
2.) Share seven things about yourself.
3.)  Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4.) Contact the bloggers to let them know you've given them an award.
I have no clue what I am doing so hopefully these links work.
Thank you to Lenzey over at Life, Love and Living In It for this award!

Ok here goes seven is such a small number but now I feel under pressure.

1. I am the middle child of three girls
2. I have been married for eleven years this year
3. I will be having surgery next week for my endometriosis and while excited I am also terrified
4. I am an aunt to three nieces and three nephews aged from 21 down to 4.
5. I am a qualified trampolining coach, which I should really take back up, I spent so many of my teen years on a trampoline.
6. I love to go to concerts and I have The Script, Kylie, Elton John and Take That all lined up for this year already (and that is just up until June).
7. I am from Wales and proud to be Welsh.

I promise to think of better things if I am every lucky enough to get another award!

Apart from number 1 these are in no particular order.
