And now that I have your attention : ) , let me share my surprising news – wonderful All Night Knits to be found at allnightknitter.wordpress.com has nominated me for … TaDah …
The Super Sweet Blogging Award. I’ve got to be honest that when I received the news, I was having a “not-particularly-great-Friday”. Things have been improving since the news. Thank you All Night Knits aka Rachel (and Max!) for your nomination. And thank you to all readers at any time of day or night.
Being wet behind the ears when it comes to blogging, I had to check exactly what this all means, but as far as I can tell the rules are the following:
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back.
3. Answer the ‘Super Sweet’ Questions.
4. Nominate a ‘Bakers Dozen’ Award (13 blogs), link to their blogs in your post and notify them on their blogs. It’s OK if you don’t have 13 blogs to nominate, just share the love!
5. Copy and paste the award on your blog somewhere.
Super Sweet Questions:
Cookies or Cake?
If I’m going to eat sweet things, it may as well be cake. I live by the rule of getting hung for a sheep, not a lamb.
Chocolate or Vanilla
Of those two it must be 80% cocoa, darkest, smoothest, richest chocolate.
What is your favorite sweet treat?
It depends on what’s available. I rather like The Hummingbird Bakery’s Red Velvet cupcake, or my own Banana Bread (Nigella Lawson’s recipe) or my Grandmother’s Gerbeud slice, or hazelnut ice cream but at a push, I’m also a sucker for Snickers bars. Was I meant to mention only one?
When do you crave sweet things the most?
When I think about it.
If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be?
Historically, I have been called Sweet Pea and Cakes. I shall reveal no more.
And the nominees are…
Before my eclectic list of bloggers, I just wanted to say that there are many blogs I read and I enjoy and here I tried to choose the ones I read very regularly so that the bloggers know. Being a Brit, the “Sweet” award may sound cloying but I mean it kindly. Please use that interpretation.
