The Sunshine Blogger Award






I am chuffed to bits and so grateful for the Sunshine Blogger Award. My fellow blogger Duck of The Duck of Indeed, did me the honour of presenting me with this fabulous award. God bless you, Duck!

Merci beaucoup, Duck, je suis tres heureux!

So, there are now a few things I must do.  They are:

  • Include the award logo in a post or on the blog
  • Include a link to the person who nominated you
  • Write 10 random things about yourself
  • Nominate ten other bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”, plus let them know you nominated them

Done the first two… Kudos! Now 10 random things about me.  So here goes…

1.   I love listening to music while I write.

2.   I enjoy long walks in windy weather.

3.   Memories make me smile.

4.   I am a big fan of  ‘According to Jim’ …hilarious!

5.   Adore watching movies.

6.   Forever jotting down beautiful quotes.

7.   My weakness.. CHOCOLATE.

8.   My strength.. my willpower!

9.   Am incredibly grateful for all my blogger friends…long may you write!

10. I am truly blessed to have great friends and my wonderful family…including my gorgeous daughter and son – thank You!

Phew. That was all about me. And now, I am going to nominate 10 other bloggers for the Sunshine Blogger Award:











Do visit these blogs, such gems!

My hearty congrats to all the bloggers mentioned above.

In the end, thanks again, Duck.

One Lovely Blog Award


When a blogger receives an award it is always a matter of pride. It means your writing is read and recognised by someone who considers you to be a good writer.

Delight and happy smiles take over. Your whole being is bathed in an aura of gratitude, humility, and an enormous amount of (much needed) encouragement.

This is exactly what happened to me when I was presented with the One Lovely Blog Award by fellow blogger The Duck of Indeed. Thank you so much, Duck, I’m chuffed beyond words! I’m honoured and thrilled, this is a precious award.

Now with the emotions and drama behind us (albeit, the histrionics a tad bit short of an Oscar acceptance speech), let me tell you something about The Duck.
