A Very Inspiring award

I owe a long overdue ‘Thank You!’ To Summer, of Grow your innerself, who nominated me for this award back in December. I didn’t respond at the time as one of the rules of acceptance is to nominate 15 other bloggers for this award. That’s a quite a lot, and I didn’t want to just list my favourite blogs but to include people who really do inspire me, for various reasons. Because of this, I only managed 10 – I hope that isn’t seen as cheating! The list is below and if I have nominated you I will  also send you a direct email/tweet/message (if i haven’t already) to let you know.


The other rule of this award is to tell you seven things about myself… I talk about myself quite a lot already on this blog so I’m not sure anything will surprise you if you are a regular reader but here goes:

  1. I live in London, UK. Typically, I complain about the weather a lot but I am grateful for the seasons.
  2. I wish I could stop time so that I could get more writing done
  3. My last holiday was my honeymoon in 2010 (Malaysia). I miss travelling
  4. I have two middle names but I only ever use one as I don’t like the other
  5. When my sister sings I often cry (in a good way). Look out for her: https://www.facebook.com/elizabethajaomusic
  6. Someone once asked me if I could choose between music and silence. I couldn’t. I still can’t. I think I need both in order to create
  7. My favourite numbers are three and seven. Predictable, right?

And here are the winners (in my eyes!) – in no particular order – are:











To all of you – thank you for the inspiration!

  1. I am honoured! Thank you so much. I too complain about the weather a lot, I miss travel and wish time could slow down a bit. Perhaps 2013 could sort out all three of those issues for us. Here’s hoping..

  2. Wow, thank-you for the nomination! I am so happy to be a follower and the award is a bonus. Thank-you Rachael. I also agree with #2 on your list, let’s get more time 🙂

  4. Thank you again and congratulations to you! Number 6 on your list is a real difficult one, I don’t think I could choose either, I think we need both definitely! =D x
