Award galore

Friendship week Awards for all my friends

Because the prompt for writers island is friendship I decided to devote all my post this week to Friendship, because this belongs to the treasures in my live. Over the last period I received several awards from Ann, Mel and Peter. The last one unfortunately left us because of plagiary problems. In the blogging world friends easily slip through your fingers. Anyway many, many thanks for your awards.

I am a bit of a rebel, doing my own thing and wanting to give the awards to father Christmas. I had a fight with him however. Don't worry I will make up with him close to Christmas. Now I use them for friendship week for all off my lovely friends I made. I said I give all of my blog roll one and keep my promise although it's quite a list, so lets start.

This award I made myself is for the people who give me the most wonderful time and I am blessed to have them. And the nominees are:

Ann from a nice place in the sun. She has a wonderful blog were she shares memories and other great stuff. She showers me with awards and the most lovely comments. She goes into lenght to answer my questions. Ann thanks you for your friendship.

Rebicmel from Missy's place. She writes wonderful poem's . Her 55's are very catching but foremost she is such a warm, heartfelt amazing woman and a real friend. Missy found me when I was just starting and immediately helped me and told people about me.

This one I made is for the very promising writers who write with such colourful words. It's a joy to read their work. And the nominees are:
