It is relatively new so totally unexpected
Here are the rules
So I will start with the first question.
It’s my way of thanking you for supporting WoollyMuses.
On Sunday March 16, WoollyMuses was nominated by br4ceyourself for The Lighthouse Award.
Hi! I love your humor, and your photos. I’ve nominated you for the Lighthouse Award for being a bright light in this world.
• Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
• Write a post and link back to the blogger that nominated you.
• Inform your nominees of their award nominations.
• Share three ways that you like to help others.
• Nominate as many bloggers as you like.
– I like to take MGW out for a meal, theatre, movie whatever so we can simply relax and have some time together.
-I have taught students whose ages ranging from five to ninety-two to use computers. It is a real buzz to be around for that light bulb moment when a student, of any age, realises how they will be able to apply a new skill in their personal life.
-I also enjoy creating posts which others, hopefully, enjoy or find some humour. My main aim when this blog began was to have fun, not to be too serious, so I feel as though I have achieved this after being nominated for this award for my humour and photos.
I would like to pass on the The Lighthouse Award to the following bloggers.
All of these bloggers are some of my regular visitors who have in some small way inspired WoollyMuses
I totally understand if any blogger does not wish to participate.
It’s my way of thanking you for supporting WoollyMuses.
Although I thanked Cee via email last weekend, I have taken a while to publicly thank Cee. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cee once again for conferring this award on my blog. It was totally unexpected.
First up, my answers to the questions:
1) What makes you happiest?
Knowing that we can leave the kids in charge and that they are old and responsible enough to manage.
2) Do you love the Oceans or Mountains more?
Probably somewhere in between. I love the unpredictability of the ocean and the serenity of the mountains. Camping at the 7,000 foot level in the Canadian Rockies was unforgettable. Likewise a rough sea or a mirror like body of water can be fascinating
3) What has been a special moment in 2013?
This year our special moment(s) have been spent in Africa. We expected to see animals but not as at such close range. Our hosts from Imagine Africa 4×4 Safaris and Sausage tree Safari Camp were the best I ave ever come across. Plans for a Pacific holiday have been ditched in preference for another trip to Africa.
Our travelling companions also made the trip an enjoyable experience and hopefully we can stay in contact, even if it is only via email.
4) What’s your favourite quote.
I love JFK’s “Ask not….” quote. There are times when many of those younger and the very young could/should take note.
Martin Luther King also gets a guernsey for his, “I have a dream…..” speech. Again, there are times when I think the world is nearly there…only to find we have taken one step forward and three steps back.
However, depending on the situation there are many others.
5) Do you like yourself?
Most of the time.
6) Do you stay up till midnight on New Year?
I am a bit of a night owl and tend to sit up until the Melbourne and Sydney fireworks have run their course.
7) Something you wish could be done ASAP?
We have a big front and back yard so I will stick with landscaping as well as some ready-made trees to shelter us from harsh winds.
8)What was your favourite class when still at school?
French all through high school and add physics in my last year.
9) What musical instrument have you tried to play?
I tried to learn to play a banjo in my early teens, took some guitar lessons but mainly taught myself to strum a few chords…can’t play any thing now. And I always had to play right-handed which did not make it any easier…..
10) Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?
I wish I had learned that you are never too old to learn at a much earlier point in my life than I did. However, even being a bit slow off the mark, I still think that my timing has been reasonably good. I now encourage others to achieve and have the patience and empathy with older students and understand their frustrations, having experienced most of them myself.
11) Do you like to do Crafts, Drawing or Painting?
The only thing approaching any of these is my love of photography and making home movies, in the past. An occasional bit of woodwork, but again I rate my ability with a camera as higher.
I would like to pass on the Most Influential Blogger Award to the following bloggers. In the nearly nine months since I commenced WoollyMuses blog these bloggers have in some way assisted me and influenced me to keep going. Some are award free blogs. Please don’t be offended if your blog is one. I can read 🙂 I am just taking this time to say thank you for your help and I hope you enjoy the mention.
I totally understand if any blogger does not wish to participate. I just wanted you to know that I think your blog is great.

Life the way I see it...
The ups and downs of 21st Century life as a disabled dad. This is an honest account of my successes and failures and what I have learnt from them. How my disability has shaped my future, my neverending journey towards acceptance and a little bit of sarcasm and humour along the way. I have been battling Chronic Pain for 14 years and have made small steps towards living life again. I'm not after sympathy or pity, but I hope to encourage others and get a few words of encouragement myself along the way. Life is for living, pain or not make the most of things!
