Tagged & An Award!

Well .... I've been tagged by the lovely Sharon & Beth ... no need (I hope!) on this occasion to reveal any toe-curlingly embarrassing personal facts, as the rules are: go to "Pictures" on your PC, select the 6th album and the 6th picture, upload it to your blog and explain what its about, then select 5 people to do the same!

Now this was a bit of a brain teaser for me as my photos are spread all over the shop according to whether they were taken on digital camera or camera phone, plus the digital camera software is not Vista compatible (I have just discovered lol!) so it is playing up. However after a bit of messing about I think the following picture fits the crteria, and as it happens it is one that makes me smile ...

This is a pic taken in the inner courtyard of the Basilica di San Marco in Venice: the Basilica is on the left and the arches on the right are part of the Palazzo Ducale. It was taken in September 2007 on my wedding anniversary, when I went with my husband for a three day break to Venice - I had never been before and we had a totally fab time :-). I had ALWAYS wanted to visit Venice, so when we first arrived and took a vaporetto along the Grand Canal to our hotel I was so excited I was quite beside myself ! Oh happy days!
Now the hard part ... I have to tag 5 more people to share their pics .. tee hee!! So here we go with Cathy, Dawny, Helen, Sarah, and Tracie.
I have also been blessed this week with another award, and some lovely words from Marcea and Helen. It really means a lot and I'm touched :-)

The rules of this are to pass it on to 5 others .... as ever very hard to choose and many blogs I love have already (rightly!) received it. I would like though to pass it back to Marcea and Helen for being such great friends and inspirational blogs, and similarly onwards to Sharon, Debbie and Carole.
