Easy Sunday

Well, I wasn't woken at 2.30am this morning, but 5.30am on a Sunday is still an anti-social hour. Pandora gets bored waiting for us to get up, so she walks from one bedside cabinet to the other, across any occupants in the bed, regardless of whether they are asleep or not. It's understandable, given her age, but annoying as Charlie (at 2 1/2) has just learnt that dark time is sleep time for humans.

Apparently, I am a nice blogger.......yup, I am - see......?

I have been awarded the Nice Matters Award from my sweet Bobkat over at Bobkats house. Now, Bobkat is the definition of nice. She's one of my closest friends, blog or otherwise. In fact, I wouldn't be where I am now without Bobkat.

This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.

The award should be passed on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award. So I now have the honour of passing on the award to others. This is very difficult as there are so many of you who deserve it - so many nice people in this big bad world.

All my blogpals are nice people, but I have managed to pick out some that brighten everyone's day and help me through dark times as well as bright.

Dawn at Retarded Rugrat is a genuinely nice girl. She's mah blogsistah and we met through a fellow blogger called Eric Mutta. She is from Yorkshire in England, but now lives in British Columbia with her fiance Jeff. She's kind, thoughtful and generous of spirit.

Yellow Rose of Texas (formerly of Georgia!) is another nice blogging person. She and Big D have just moved to their new house in Texas and she has still managed to find time to blog and keep us all up to date with everything going on in her beautiful garden, boxes and all.

david at Sugarloaf Mountain is a wonderful man. We 'met' through Michele and have kept in blogtouch since. What with defending Michele's honour and being there supporting Minerva through her trials, he is a real champion. His blog is a great place to get to know david.

Missee Bug, at Ladybug Crossing, is a very welcome visitor. She regales us with the trials and tribulations of life at the Bug Mansion. Not only is there her, Mr Bug, #1 and LLB (Li'l LadyBug), but they have added an annex and moved the GrandBugs in too.

Life in the raw can be found at Redneck Mommy's blog. She is mother of two, Fric and Frac, and has a hubby, Boo. T is a kind and thoughtful soul, and her blog is her deepest thoughts and desires. Motherhood uncensored is the theme of this wonderful blog.

Another mommyblog I enjoy visiting is Mamahog and her wonderful lovelets, Loveday and Yashi. Keda is from sunny Cornwall in England, but now resides in sunny Istanbul (no pleasing some people!) and her blog is almost a devotion to her daughters, the most important things in her life.

Can there be a Nice Award without nominating Michele? Her of the magical Meet and Greet where most of us have met and swapped links. Michele is an icon of blogging consideration and entertainment. During the week there are loads of quizzes and games to play - and sometimes she even talks about herself!

btw: if you're looking for a new blogging toy, Blogger Play is up and running. Blogger Play will show you a never-ending stream of images that were just uploaded to public Blogger blogs. You can click the image to be taken directly to the blog post it was uploaded to, or click “show info” to see an overlay with the post title, a snippet of the body, and some profile information about the blogger who uploaded it. It's kinda cool and wonderful to see the variety of pictures being uploaded around the world.

Great site and I'm going to visit your 7 nominees today, too.

Michele said...

Thank you so very much for your oh-so-kind words. What a lovely way to start my day. Of course, many people find moments of their day made more lovely, simply by visiting you!

Yes, craziqueen you do deserve a niceness award. In fact, if there was a "nicest" award, you would also be nominated for that.

Again, thank you. It is truly an honour for YOU to include me in such fine company.

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil.

Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net( no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso.

Bob-kat said...

I could have sworn I already commented here! Anyhow, I just wanted to say that you deserve it Hon. I don't think I need to say anything more except that it was nice to be able to give this award to you as a little gesture of my appreciation of you friendship :)

I'm so glad Michele sent me by today, or I wouldn't have followed your nice award link to Rugrat's. No wonder you gave her a nice award.

Michele says hello!
