I got a comment on my blog today from
Carlie And Tia
Who I read quite a bit. I thought i’d participate since I got such a nice award! Thank you Carlie and Tia!
The rules are apparently that I have to link to the person who gave me this award, write 7 things about me and then award the award to 15 other blogs. That’s gonna be hard. Let’s start with 7 things you might not know about me. Hmmmmmmmm………….
1. I am 5 foot tall.
2. I live in Northern Ireland.
3. I love messing around with new technology for blind people.
4. When I was younger, I wanted to be a hair dresser.
5. I think it would be cool to drive a car.
6. I used to be scared of grass lol.
7. I don’t really care if my clothes go together, as long as they are clean.
Now for 15 blogs:

Boy that was hard! Enjoy your awards!
Also before I go, Carlie was wondering how to take the immage of the award. For anyone else who doesn’t know how to do this, here’s how I did it.
At the top of this post hopefully, there should be a link that says “awesome blog award” or something. Click on this. Jaws won’t say anything as this is an immage when the link opens. Go to your address bar and copy the URL. Close down the window.
When creating a new post, type in your title as usual, and then come out of the eddit box, and use your down arrow until you get to “add immage”. Enter on this. A new window will open. Head down the page until you get to “URL” or something, and enter your URL that you copied into this box. Then click “Upload immage”, then after it uploads, click the “done” link that should appear.
You can then write your post below this immage. I usually press enter twice.
I hope this helps, and thanks again!
