Spirit Animal Blog Award – A New One For Me!

I wake on the last day of the year 2015, and in my notifications, I am blessed with an award nomination from Susie of Susieshy45. Please if you don’t already, go check Susie’s blog out!

It’s a new, unfamiliar award to me, the Spirit Animal Bog Award!


  1. Display the logo… Done!


2. Write a short description about you and what your blog means to you, oh, and if you were an animal, what animal would you be.

3.  Nominate fellow bloggers to pass the award on to.

So, here goes!

I am a 40 year old working mum. A teacher by day, and for the rest of the hours of the day, I am a mum to 2 crazy kids, and wife to a wonderful hubby, a devoted daughter, and daughter-in-law, and part time blogger! My days are packed with so much stuff, yet I feel I have to come to my blogosphere regularly, to have some me time!

I started this blog over a year ago, on a whim, as a friend had started one.  I didn’t know what a blog was to be honest! And as for followers… who would want to follow me if I didn’t even know what a blog was!

Over time, I started to write, about my life, then I rekindled my love for writing, and my creative side woke up! So all in all you get a pretty eclectic mix of things I blog about on here… from my family, and Kids Logic, to Spidey’s Serene Sundays.  Sonu Singh, my fur baby, is a star in his own right on here too! My opinions and memories flow, when they want, and then, when it hits, I can be poetic! I love to take part in certain challenges, like Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge, and his Friday Fiction Challenge, and there is Matt the Book Blogger’s Flash Fiction Foray challenge too.

And  I have discovered some amazing people on this platform, some who have become a part of my daily life, a real Blogily, as I like to call them!  This blog is a place to relax, be me, and interact with many likeminded people from all over, who I would never have met in real life!

Now if I was an animal, what would I be??!!  I used to say a monkey, but, much as I love them, no.  I think I would like to be a dolphin… free, in the sea, intelligent!  Or maybe a cat… what a life eh!

And I need to nominate some fellow bloggers too!

Erika Kind   My dear blog sis –  an amazingly positive person who has made my blogging experience so special this last year!

Rich – My Pizzalicious Blog bro! He has recently discovered that he is an amazing poet!

Judy My Kentish blog sis who shares the same sense of humour as me, and has some fantastic comical poetry, as well as some great posts that have stemmed from her work in Nursing.

Rob – I am not quite sure how to describe my Leibster Meister, Rib Rob! But what I can say is that if you follow his blog you won’t be disappointed! What started as a weight loss journey, slowly evolved, and you get music, (his own!) and some great thoughtful pieces, as well as some hysterical Tid Bit Tuesday posts!

Syl – now if thoughtful verse is what you are after, then you should check out Syl’s blog. His poems, and words, are inspirational!
