Blogging Awards

I was nominated for a few awards some time back and I didn’t get to writing this post and on the way I got nominated for some more awards so I just decided to combine them into one post. I’m sure I must be breaking quite a few rules and I apologize for that but this will just have to do 🙂

On 23rd Dec 2013 (it’s  just two weeks back) I was nominated by Randomly Abstract for three awards, the Versatile Blogger Award, the Reader Appreciation Award and the Terrific Writer Award. A big thank you to her and do check out her wonderful blog.

As I already have the Versatile Blogger Award I will be accepting the other two with a big smile!

On the same day I got nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by the lovely Victoria at My [Redacted] Journey. Another big thank you to her and do check out her wonderful blog for her writing as a mother and a teacher.

On 1st of Jan 2014 I was nominated for the Sunshine Award by shirlld over at Life as a country bumpkin … not a city girl. Thanks so much and do check out her writing about life in the country. Since I also have this award this post was just meant to say thanks.

To accept the Reader Appreciation Award and the Terrific Writer Award I have to share 7 things about myself. So here goes:

  1. I love Mexican food
  2. Even though I come from a city where we have subzero temperatures I feel more cold than other people. Believe me I’m even feeling cold in Dubai!
  3. I never read my horoscope. It’s so general it could apply to anybody.
  4. I had an arranged marriage which means I didn’t know my husband when I married him. Happily counting 10 years.
  5. When I was in school, I was the shortest kid in class and used to stand at the front of the line in assembly
  6. I don’t play any sports but I love watching a number of sports.
  7. I love watching cooking shows (I’m not much of a cook though)

Now the nominees for the two awards mentioned above:

Rules for the award are:
1. Use the Sunshine Award logo in the post.
2. Link to whoever nominated you.
3. Write ten pieces of information about yourself.
4. Nominate ten fellow bloggers, “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.
5. Leave a comment on the nominees’ blogs to tell them of the award.

So about me:

  1. I don’t believe in zodiac signs as I know many people who have the same sign but are totally different. My sister and I are an example. I don’t even know what sign my son is.
  2. I love all types of fruit and could just have fruit for a meal.
  3. Unlike a lot of people I struggle with being underweight though you can’t tell that in my pictures. (Yeah, having fruit for a meal is not a great idea!)
  4. As a child I was a tomboy and loved following my brother around.
  5. I care a lot about what others think of me.
  6. I love dressing up.
  7. I only like putting nail polish on my toenails.
  8. I am one of those people who are always punctual. I hate being late.
  9. I don’t like dogs. (Sorry!)
