Thank you so much for thinking of me.. I guess I am a bit of a Blogaholic lol!

Shop Girl Anonymous

I was nominated for the Blog-aholic Award by the gorgeous and talented Beauty and the Ballroom.  If you have not checked out her blog, I strongly suggest it, her adventures in ballroom dancing and day to life are not only enchanting, but her support as a member of the blogging community is met by very few.


The creator of this award is The Recipe Hunter. The Recipe Hunter’s blog is full of recipes, so if you are into cooking make sure to check her out! The rules for this award go as follows:

– Put the above award logo/image on your blog

– List the rules

The Mystery Blogger Award


“Mystery Blogger Award”is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts.  Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates.  They are one of the best out there and they deserve every recognition they get.  This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging and they do it with so much love and passion. – Okoto Enigma

The award was created by Okoto Enigma.  Here is the link:

  1. A huge thank you to Rob of Art By Rob Goldstein for considering me eligible for this award. It is not one that I have received before!

Rules For The Nominees:

  • Display the award logo on your blog. √
  • List the Rules. √
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. √
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well. √
  • Tell your readers three things about yourself. √
  • Answer five questions from the nominee. √
  • Nominate anywhere from ten to twenty bloggers. √
  • Notify the bloggers by leaving a comment on their blog. √
  • Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice, including one weird or funny question. √
  • Share the link to your best post. √

Ok, so three things abut me…

  1. I am a British Indian woman, with a Kenyan background thrown in, thanks to my parents being born there.
  2. I wear many hats… Daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, teacher, blogger, author… I wonder where I have the time to sleep sometimes…
  3. I love to sing! I find a song for all occasions! And if I can’t find one, I’ll make one up!

5 questions to answer…

  1. Would you jump in front of a bus for a complete stranger? I think it depends on the situation. If I was with my children, I couldn’t leave them and put myself in danger. If I was alone, I would.
  2. If a neighbour was a hoarder and lived in unsafe and unhealthy conditions, would you ignore it or take action?  If you did, what would it be? It would depend on how well I knew the neighbour.
  3. If you could go back in time and change one day in your life, which day would it be and why? A bad decision I made a good few years back. I can;ty go into details, but that day comes back to haunt me regularly.
  4. What is your favourite word? I can’t have one favourite word, I’m a writer!!!
  5. The weird question:  If you knew you could get away with it, would you rob a bank? It would haunt me for the rest of my life, so no!

My nominees…

I know some don’t accept awards, so consider this a thank you for being such amazing writers, inspiring me in many ways!






His Geoffleship





The same five questions for you to answer, please!

  1. Would you jump in front of a bus for a complete stranger?
  2. If a neighbour was a hoarder and lived in unsafe and unhealthy conditions, would you ignore it or take action?  If you did, what would it be?
  3. If you could go back in time and change one day in your life, which day would it be and why?
  4. What is your favourite word?
  5. The weird question:  If you knew you could get away with it, would you rob a bank?

The award asks for a link to your best post.

I don’t know what my best post is… maybe it is yet to come… but here is one on family… which is most important to me!

Black Cat Blue Sea Award

It’s been a while since I posted an awards acceptance, but I had to take part in this one, as it was a new one for me from my dear blog sis, Erika!

Have you happened upon her blog? If you haven’t, please do go and visit her, and follow, for some wonderful positivity filled posts, and pearls of wisdom, via her Daily quotes!

She’s a fantastic poet, and singer too, and full of romance!

You haven’t popped over yet? Seriously? Go now, and come back to my post!!!

Ok, I am going off the point here! Where was I?

Oh yes, the Award!

“This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.” – Ella


The rules….

  1. Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers.
  2. The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
  3. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
    If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.
    [And I would add: notify your nominees about their nominations at their blogs].

I am sorry, I am a bit rubbish at nominating others, but those of you that I follow, I follow for a reason, because you are amazing with your writing, and you should all consider yourselves nominated!

And the Questions that Erika asked…

What do you love most about yourself?

I find that very hard to answer… but I guess my positivity is one of the biggest plusses in my nature!
What do you love most about someone who challenged you the most? (No irony, I mean it!)

I love the fact that ‘he’ is still here, by my side, through a hell of a lot of ups and downs.
What do you love most about your current life?

I love so many things about life right now, My Hubby, my children, my family, my cat, my job, my blogily….


And if you wish to take part, the 3 questions I will ask, which you can answer in the comments, are as follows…

  1. Which blog post of yours has been the most personally touching? The post you feel has hit a nerve with many?
  2. Have you ever done anything that you have regretted, but learned a huge lesson from?
  3. What is the number one thing on you life bucket list to do?

Thank you again Sis! 🙂
