An Abundance of Awards (Part I)


Well I have received an abundance of nominations for a variety of awards this week! I still feel overawed that my little blog gets visitors let alone nominations. Happy Christmas Blog, Santa didn’t forget you!



First The lovely Stephanie Thomas of S.J. Thomas’s Book Blurbs nominated me for The Blog of the Year Award

I follow, read and enjoy a huge variety of blogs and would like to pick a couple for this award nomination

Notes on Novels where I am in awe of the challenges that this Bookish philosopher, avid reader, audio-book addict, expat and cat person, blogging in English: There is also a German blog that looks really interesting but I’m afraid I don’t understand a word of it!

Shrimp at Hairballs Express as this super cat makes me smile and I think The Human has good taste in books!

Suzie at Suzie 81’s Blog who held a blog party when I had just begun blogging which helped me to find more fabulous blogging friends and as a result I have added so many books to my TBR while laughing, sympathising and generally gazing in awe at all the fabulous blogs out there.

7 totally random things about me

I hate the cold

Mr Snow

I am quite clumsy

Mr Bump

At work I am very untidy with files, paper and random pen lids (rarely a pen when I need it) all over the surface of my desk

Mr Messy

Without a cup of coffee (or few) before I start the day I am very grumpy

Mr Grumpy

When I sneeze I actually say “A Tissue” in what I’m told is a very ladylike way (I don’t know why people find this so amusing!)
Mr Sneeze

I live in a beautiful part of the world and love walking along the beach daydreaming
Mr Daydream
I have lovely friends and family and of course my pile of books so I’m generally (once the requisite coffee has been drunk) a happy person
Mr Happy

So now to nominate 7 other bloggers…

Words and Peace

Jessica at What Comes Next

Katherine at Curiosa Kat

Dreamz and Clouds

Economics Courageous

Andrea at Review Books and More

A Little Bird Tweets

These are all awesome blogs that I highly recommend you check out! Great people, interesting postings, good conversations… you won’t be disappointed

  1. cool, thanks so much for the nomination> I’m totally swamped though right now, and really don’t have time to pass it on and write a post about myself, I don’t even have enough tie to review all the books I read this past month…
