We Interrupt this Programme………

Very rarely is my breath taken away though I know there are many people who deeply regret that. Some have even offered a gag. On Sunday I received an email and notice of a post that did just that. Another award nomination but one I’ve not heard of before and I hope my friend will forgive me for saying so, but from an unexpected quarter. Not that I don’t think she’s extremely generous but because I thought she didn’t believe in these awards as many don’t. First of all, let me say that I believe the awards are a good thing ( though sometimes they can be a nuisance) because they let an author or blogger or reader know that they’re touching someone’s lives and for me that’s what writing is all about.

This award is unusual in more than I haven’t heard of it before. It also doesn’t require that I answer a mess of questions or create more for my nominees. Having said that, I’m a rebel and am going to set one question to each of the nominated people. I’m supposed to find 14 worthy people which should not be hard but I won’t press too hard if each of then bend the rules slightly where numbers are concerned or on question setting if it comes to that. So without further ado, allow me to introduce you to my friend Jan and her very ecologically friendly site ‘The Snail of Happiness‘.  http://thesnailofhappiness.com   …………………………………………………………………………………………..
