The Illuminating Blog Award

First off I have a thank you and an apology to make. Many, many thanks to the wonderful Cyranette who has nominated The Spineless Wonders for this prestigious award. I also owe her an apology for taking so long to accept it! Cyril, Will and I are extremely grateful and utterly thrilled to have been nominated by such a fabulous blogger. Please do visit Cyranette’s site, Writer’s Block Busters where she provides her readers with wonderful writing prompts and daily inspiration. This is a good opportunity to say thank you once more to all of our loyal followers. Even if you are just here for the first time or just for the occasional visit, we love having you and we hope that we continue to entertain you.

The rules for accepting this award are:

I. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you. Check

2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back. Check

3. Share a random thing about yourself. Check – honest, look down, it’s there!

4. Select five or more nominees and notify them on their blogs. Check!

5. Copy and paste the award on your blog somewhere. Check!

A random thing about Me? I once presented the news on a Swedish Television Channel – it was just a one off. I found it hard to handle the overwhelming fame! 😉

And now, without further ado, I would like to share with you my nominations!

Trish+Brian – A wonderful photo blog where this duo capture great shots full of nostalgia and inspiration.

Paula Acton – Paula’s blog is full of diversity. She is open, honest and shares her work and her thoughts with us. A very enjoyable blog.

Fay Moore – I am enjoying traveling along with Fay as she makes her journey as a budding writer. She shares her work and her prompts/inspiration.

Aaron the Ogre – I love Aaron’s cartoons. Some of the political ones are above me because I don’t pay enough attention to what’s going on in the world, but he has some brilliant work with great attention to detail.

The Panda Chronicles – How could anyone not love this adorable motley crue! You should check out how they’ve been getting on in the Olympics!

I hope you enjoy checking out these blogs, just a snapshot of some of the wonderful stuff that’s out there.

Have a great weekend everybody. Tune in next week to see if the boys get back to the present day!

Ms Katykins, Cyril and Willy. 🙂

Our Very First Award! Thanks, Subtle Kate!

Okay, this is where things are going to start to get a little weird… Now that my boys, Cyril and Willy have been kindly nominated for this very special and brand new Daisy Blogger Award by the lovely Subtle Kate, I have realised that I shall have to adopt the role of their spokesperson. But don’t worry, I shall relate their answers straight from the invertebrates’ mouths!

Here are the rules:

* Thank the person who nominated you.
* Tell your readers 7 unusual things about yourself.
* Nominate some worthy bloggers.

1. Cyril didn’t always want to be a snail, he had big dreams of becoming a centipede because he has a secret shoe fetish. Alas, with no feet to speak of, he can only dream.

2. Willy and Cyril consider themselves to be ambassadors for vulnerable invertebrates everywhere.

3. Cyril is looking for love but it’s not been easy for him.

4. The Spineless Wonders love spending their evenings at The Cavern where they have seen all sorts of impressive music acts. Just you wait and see! says Willy.

5. Cyril and Willy are from the garden. It doesn’t have a specific geographic location, at least not that they’re aware of. It’s just a crazy wilderness where the boys have had and continue to have loads of wild adventures!

6. Willy considers himself to be the funniest critter in anyone’s garden and refuses to even crack a grin if he thinks it’s possible for another bug to be funnier than him.

7. Willy is sometimes mean to Cyril. Don’t worry, Cyril can give as good as he gets. But really they’re best friends.

The Spineless Wonders’ Nominees:

Claire Cappetta – She’s putting herself and her work out there and is a brave individual who recently tried her hand vlogging for the first time. Good for you, Claire!

Maggie Myklebust – Not everyone would openly put their life out their in black and white for the scrutiny of the public. But she has and she’s written a real winner!

Carlarenee – With her very personal, reflective blogs, Carla is dealing with her own issues in a very open, honest way. Her 30 Days of Creativity and Thanks etc are very inspiring.

Subtle Kate – The lady who invented this award in the first place and is perhaps the bravest one of us all! Go you, I admire the way you’re getting yourself through this.

Thanks for our very first award, Kate! Thanks as well to all our readers for the Follows and the Comments. We’re not too bothered, I mean it’s just the random stuff we do everyday but Ms Katykins seems to appreciate it!

The Spineless Wonders 🙂
