Ladies and Gentlemen, please take your seats for a roll-call of brilliant bloggers.
Along with Mrs Green at MyZeroWaste, I am thrilled to have accepted the award from the amazing Emma - aka Muppet or even Fluffius Muppetus - who can normally be found in The Alternative Kitchen Garden over at Coopette.com. She said some kind words in her award speech, saying our blogs were very inspirational.
Thank you Emma, it was a lovely surprise and I am now pleased to pass it on to some other fabulous bloggers, who I think are great, but are so diverse. Of course Mrs G would be right up there in the line-up but she's already polishing her own award.
So bloggers, please stand up and be ready to accept your awards,
@ Just Gai - The lovely Gareth Rae, who offers many words of wisdom as well as joy over the world we live in and how things should be. Don't miss what Just Gai has to say on the latest contender over at BIN 101.
@ Strawberry Jam Anne - A newcomer on the scene, with Anne who writes an uplifting blog about family and friendship, with moments that touch close to your heart.
@ Bean sprouts - Melanie Rimmer offers a fabulous foundation for sustainable living, with fresh ideas at every turn. She provides inspiration to many, including me when I turned to her for advice at the very start of this blog. If you haven't done so already, check out Mel's guest article here.
@ Dandaworld - A true Italian friend who's pushing the boundaries over in Italy with inspirational thoughts on sustainability. Danda's words can now be read in English, which puts my non-existent Italian to shame.
@ Tracey Smith - An inspirational friend and mentor who set up International Downshifting Week and helped me justify giving up what is deemed proper work. She's even got her own book out, a fab read about...guess what...yes Rubbish. Grab a preview of the sample pages over at Bookofrubbishideas.co.uk.
@ Environmental Notes - by Fr Peter Doodes, with inspirational messages about the important things in life and the world. Thought provoking moments.
@ Good Living Tips - written by Russell, who provides a fabulous range of thoughts on sustainable and ethical living.
@ Jo Beaufoix - A thoroughly entertaining mother from Mansfield, who shares an insight into her life in a way that can make me laugh my socks off and cry with sadness, sometimes at the same time. I will be forever thankful to Jo for slimming her bin, and making a difference to Nottinghamshire landfill.
@ Mother at Large - A fabulous blog for older mothers, written by Helen, following the trials and tribulations of arriving at motherhood "fashionably late". Congratulations to Helen on the arrival of her second daughter who too was described as fashionably late.
@ Ruby - the blogger turned friend and the person who inspired me to blog. She's has been there by my side through the whole Rubbish Diet experience. She slimmed her bin, then scarpered off to York, where she's now settling in for a new set of adventures.
@ KatyBoo1 - a more recent acquaintance, a blogger who says it how it is, stamps on the hushed side of motherhood, and after the week she's had, is in need of cheering up.
@ Richard Madeley Appreciation Society - I know, a surprise entry. Written by Richard Madeley, as himself but not himself. He will know he's worthy of awards and above them at the same time. Confused? You will be, so pop along to see why.
and last but most certainly not least
@ Fake Plastic Fish - where Beth has made the most amazing inroads into living with so little plastic, she's worthy of a medal or two. An inspirational woman with such vigour and determination, I can only sit back and admire.
There are many more I could include. Each and every blog I visit and pause for a while, I do it because I enjoy your company and I enjoy your presence here too. I wish I could visit more often and if I haven't for a while, I will be back soon. But days pass with so little time for words to be read or even written.
So after I've come over and visited you all, please feel free to pass on the award to others. Whether you're rule-followers or rule-breakers (which I know some of your are), the rules are outlined below.
1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs
