What seems like an eternity ago (but was only a couple of weeks) C.B.Wentworth passed on a couple of awards to me. Unfortunately that coincided with a really busy period at work, coming down with what I can only describe as the cold from hell closely followed by the first campaign challenge. Two weeks later I’ve still got the remnants of the cold and that’s a record (and it’s not just me either, my wife came down with it at the same time and is also only just getting over it, so it’s not just me being a man-wimp). Now that everything has settled down though I can finally get around to accepting these kind awards.
So firstly I’d like to thank C.B. again for kindly passing the awards on. I’ve never been given one before, and as I’ve said in a previous post I’m amazed and the number of bloggers out there that I never knew existed. If Rachael Harrie’s campaign has done one thing it’s make me aware of that. I also thought I’d use it as an opportunity to pass on the award to the bloggers that I’ve recently come to know as part of the campaign and the blogs that have particularly impressed me and drawn me in.
The first award was the Sunshine Award.
In order to claim the Sunshine Award here’s what I and the next lucky recipients need to do:
- Thank the person who gave you the award and provide a link.
- Write a post about it
- Answer the questions below.
- Pass it on to 10 bloggers who you think really deserve it and let them know
Answer 10 Questions:
- Favorite color – Blue
- Favorite animal – White Tiger
- Favorite number – 7
- Favorite non-alcoholic drink – Coke Zero or Becks Blue (hey, it’s non-alcoholic!)
- Facebook or Twitter – Twitter
- My passion – Writing
- Getting or giving presents? – Giving
- Favorite pattern – No preference
- Favorite day of the week – Sunday
- Favorite flower – Rose
Which leads us onto the second award, the Kreativ Blogger award.
In order to claim the Kreativ Blogger Award here’s what I and the next lucky recipients need to do:
- Thank the blogger who gave you the award and provide a link.
- List 7 interesting things about yourself that your readers might find interesting
- Nominate 7 other bloggers, provide links, and let them know!
7 Interesting Things

- I started going grey at 16 (about 80% now, if my hair grows too long I look like a badger)
- I make a wicked Lemon Cheesecake (I swear you put on 2lb just being within 5 feet of it)
And that brings us onto my ten nominations. No mean feat this and I have to admit I’ve favoured the new friends and bloggers I’ve met over the course of the past few weeks during the campaign. So in no particular order, my nominations are
Im not going to go into detail about each of the sites, each has their own particular characteristics, interest and merits. Obviously this is subjective, so visit and let them know what you think.
