Thank you to the Niamh Clune of Plum Tree Books for nominating my blog for the ‘Blog Of The Year 2012’ Award.

Blog of the Year Award 3 star jpeg

I have not followed many blogs [although I have read many blogs but did not follow on a regular basis ] in 2012 due to scheduling but hope to follow more in 2013. I have nominated the following blogs for this award and hope you will accept the award.


 Quite simply this award is to show- you are appreciated by this ‘blog award’ however; if you wish to participate, the instructions are below. Otherwise, feel the love, admiration and appreciation. Hope this new year will be a fantastic year for blogging!

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!
Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!
When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!
There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
