very inspiring blogger award – thank you UTE!

19 Dec


Vielen vielen dank, ευχαριστώ πολύ, thank you very much, muchas gracias to UTE for nominating me for the very inspiring blogger award! The reason behind my multilingual thanks is not to brag about the languages I speak (so she says) but to introduce you to the very talented, very inspirational UTE from, a multilingual mom of three. Please make the time to check her blog out, she ROCKS!

The Rules
1.Display the award logo on your blog.
2.Link back to the person who nominated you.
3.State 7 things about yourself.
4.Nominate 15 bloggers for this blog and link to their pages.
5.Notify these bloggers of the nomination and the awards’ requirements.

7 things about myself

  1. I am a very giving person. I will definitely go out of my way to help a loved one, a close friend or a family member.
  2. I forgive but I never forget.
  3. I am not particularly a brand person but I have been loyal to HEINZ ketchup since I was 5.
  4. When I am angry and frustrated I can spend hours in the kitchen. I find cooking soothing to the soul, unless I have burned the food.
  5. I am obsessive compulsive when it comes to throwing away left over food. I would rather eat it (even if I am full) than throw it in the bin. This childhood trauma probably comes from back in the days when my parents psychologically blackmailed me that the children in Africa would kill for a plate of fish, which brings me to no 6
  6. I hate fish. I always have. I always will. You know, how people when they are hungry say things like: I wish I had some grilled fish??? NOT ME.
  7. When I was 19 I decided to become a vegetarian. It lasted 7 months.

Now, the fun part. This is a list of people I follow and really enjoy reading:

    Thank you soooooooooooooo much my dear !!! Looking at all the other blogs you nominated, mine is the least worthy of this award, as there are some truly inspiring people out there, but thank you very very much nonetheless.

    Sending you kisses and my warmest wishes for the Festive Season !!! xxx

    Darling I thank you – I have reposted your award …go and visit. I have accepted…. in a way and it’s not because I receive so many – it’s very hard to keep nominating people and also hard work doing the Award procedure – that is the only reason why I don’t accept them anymore. In saying that please read my post and see if you are happy with what I have done. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for graciousness. xxx

    COngrats on the award and thanks for the nomination.
    Funny that you talked about ketchup. It is at the top or near it as one of my most despised foods. Just thinking of ketchup weirds me out.

      isn’t that great?? the world would be way too boring if everyone liked the same things, don’t you think?
