Bling Fling

 Arte y Pico Award.

This unusual award comes from Jeni from Down River Drivel. She says that the Arte y Pico award was specially designed to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and talents. This can be through writing, artwork, design, interesting material or contribution to the bigger community. It is a special honour to receive it.
The award should be sent to 5 other bloggers who meet this criteria.
I first "met" Jeni through David Mcmahon when he invited her to take part in his Sunday Roast.
I am glad that I left a message on her blog, where I felt immediately "at home," so why not look her up?

Now I have to choose 5 others to pass this award on to.

A Mask To hide Behind other wise known as Girl With The Mask. Humorous every day!

Missing You Already where Mya hangs out! Saucy but very funny!

Crazy Cath's Reflections where some superb photography is taking place!

Gone Back South went away for a while then came back, changed her blog & writes short posts that are action packed and very good!

Expatmum is well known for her book, her interesting American perspective and her toilet stories!

So there we are! All done and dusted!

Thank you Maggie May! I shall go and display it now. Thank you so much for thinking of me, and I am glad that sometimes I can make you laugh.


Expatmum said...

Thanks Maggie. Gosh, I will have to come up with some more loo stories now won't I?

Rose said...

Congratulations! I've only been reading your blog for a couple weeks, but I can see why your entertaining stories earned this award.

You identify great blogs in this list. David has connected some great folks. I recognize some through his site here.

I'll be back when you're done procrastinating!

I've gatecrashed your awards ceremony to say hello! Just read back to your blog about your family moving out. You sounded so sad. Hope you have adjusted well now.

Families eh?

Congratulations to you on winning this award. Enjoy the accolades!

Mean Mom said...

That's a very unusual and lovely award. It's also well deserved, of course!

Sorry to read about the family moving out, but I was in a similar situation for a couple of years, with much the same outcome. You do your best and that's all that you can do. We had some great times and some awful times. Perhaps it was the same for you. Hope everything turns out OK.

I've also read your roly-poly poo post, which has amused me immensely and, now I can't stop giggling!

Maggie May - thanks for the evening primrose suggestion, it was kind of you and when I get done with the fish oils I'll have a go. Funny how you see a name on posts and think I must visit that site one day. I'm glad that I did because your blog is great and you seem to be such a kind person. Your personality and great humour shines through your posts.

Ta hen!

They're great bloggers. Never checked out Mya before - on my way now.

CrazyCath said...

Maggie - I'm honoured. Thank you very much. I will get it posted up this week.
Thanks again.

Jeni said...

Maybe some time all of us who have "met" via David McMahon should surprise him with a big old "Thank you party" huh? Hope you've had a great weekend -we survived our "Road Trip" and just glad to be back home again - for a while anyway! Peace.
