Recognition,Thanks and a Personal Apology.

I have been a little quiet on the blogging front since christmas.

I have many reasons for this, I don’t want to bore you with the mundane aspects of my life. I have been writing but in a more, “for the submissions cycle” way.

I still love my blog,my followers and read you guys on a daily basis, Im amazed by the quality of post I find on a daily basis,it really does give me hope, that those spirited and minded like me aren’t the minority as I once feared.

I write this post because a few months ago, I got given an award, For” The Versatile blogger award” by The lovely Robin Claire and I promised I would write a post when I was properly able to acknowledge both the honor and the person offering me the award.

So to Robin I want to extend my apologies personally, I am so sorry I didn’t respond faster to this lovely honor, I really have no excuse and that probably makes it worse.

ANyway Thank you for this Lovely Award:-


These are the rules for the Versatile Blogger Award:

1. Display the Award Certificate on your website

2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award

3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers

4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself

So I have covered Number 1 and Number 2

Here are the lovely bloggers I would like to nominate:-

Artistic Milestone
The Seeker
Renato Vasconcellos David ( I know he is my husband and I am sorry to everyone)
The infamous Cheeky Diva
The (Equally infamous) Edward Hotspur

Mr Mary
Hasty Words
Paulette Mahurin( A wonderful Novelist)
Poetic creole
3rd Culture Children

I am working on Number 4!

And finally Number 5,

(Im not that interesting so this might be tough or not so interesting)

– I like to attend poetry slams and recitals, although I haven’t In a while me and Renato are going to re-pick up this tradition.
– I Often write poetry at 4 am when I wake up to pee and cant get back to sleep.
– I suck at romance but I enjoy it
– I find it more romantic to be able to burp and sneeze and be gross infront of my hubby than be a priss.
– Although I am an athiest I probably have more conversations about religion or some aspect of faith than many other subjects
– I enjoy notebooks and have an inordinate amount of them, lots filled lots empty for years( too pretty to write in)
– My favourite tea is Earl gray and I have,like my notebooks, many boxes of different kinds of tea( I have a cupboard just for tea in my Kitchen.

So there we are thank you again,sorry again and I hope to rejoin this lovely community more properly in the near vicinity.

  3. Congratulations on your award and thank you so much for thinking of me. Wow, what a great way to start the day. I couple weeks ago I posted a huge, “I love my blogger friends,” with the song featuring Louie Armstrong, “It’s a Wonderful World.” It was my thank you to everyone who awarded me me something and just a heartfelt outflow to all the amazing new cyber friends I’ve connected with. Please consider that also my thank you to you. I’m also now following your site and sure do look forward to more. Big cyber hug to you, Paulette 🙂
