The versatile blogger award

Wowsers, another award…cool!

the thing I love about awards most is the awesome list of cool blogs you get at the bottom. It’s worth searching for blog posts of awards just to get some new blog recommendations…. just let me find that 25th hour to the day first…!

I got awarded by the mmmmmfamily blog. This mama is dealing with some serious health issues in her family of 3 kids under 5 right now, and writes about it with emotion, sensitivity and style. She also writes it as a diary and log for her husband and kids in the future. It’s very real, very grounding and not at all ‘poor me’. Inspiring. Thank you lady!

As per the rules I’ve got to state 7 things about myself, and thenΒ  nominate 15 (FIFTEEN??!!) other blogs. OK.

1) My fave colour is green.

2) My fave breakfast is a smoothie, but I don’t have it often as I feel guilty about waking up the neighbours at silly o’clock with the noise of the blender.

3) I cosleep with my partner and three kids…we have 2 double mattresses stuck together. It’s still not quite enough space though.

4) I had psoriasis before having kids. Haven’t had a proper ‘flare up’ since becoming pregnant for the first time. No complaints there!

5) I’ve been either pregnant or breastfeeding with no let up for 8.5 years… really.

6) I feel like I’m constantly washing clothes, I mean constantly. Summer has been so much better…but winter….uff, the bulky clothes and they take ages to dry (here in Europe we don’t have dryers).

7) I really, really want to get a dog. But each time we get serious about it, I get pregnant…haha.

Now the 15 blogs, sorry, no explanation, just go visit!
















Phew! Enjoy!! Thanks!!!

  1. Awwwww thank you so much for my award! I already did one of these a couple of weeks ago so I’m going to stop the madness of doing it again so soon. I really do appreciate you thinking of me though! I can’t believe the whole family co-sleeps. I don’t know how you do it!! the two mattresses would help but I can see that it would still not be enough room. Yikes! That’s funny that you mention about the psoriasis. I had eczema as a child and in my earlier adult years. I seemed to have grown out of it/have it under control UNTIL I got pregnant. It flared back up and I’ve had issues with it ever since. I’m hoping my next kid (whenever that may be) gives my hormones the jolt they need to get rid of it again!!! And 8.5 years…YOU ARE A MACHINE woman!


    1. Lol. Just reading your reactions to the random facts made me realise the random and quite personal nature of them! So funny, the things we share. Then again, nothing I probably wouldn’t wax lyrical about to someone I met in a toilet queue, but that’s just me, hehe.
      Wise word on the award front, accepting things twice has gotta be wrong, right?!
      Bye for now!


      1. Hehe well I think I might do a post about it still as have just received another a second time. I might combine them. I’m not, sure I have any new blogs to recommend though. Will have to see what I can dig up!!!


  2. Congrats to you! And thank you so much…I am honored. I accepted this same award just 2 weeks ago and in the words of fellow blogger who I nominated for an award they already received…”I don’t wanna be virtually egged” accepting it again. But I’m truly grateful!
    And my fave color is also green and smoothies are my face breakfast but I’m just too lazy to make them every morning πŸ™‚

    Just now seeing this – thank you!! I love Anita Shreve’s books too. πŸ˜€ I started with Pilot’s Wife and really liked it, but my favorite by far is Sea Glass! LOVE Oh, and Light on Snow…
