The lady with The Song of Life has presented me with not one or two, but four awards!!
Thank you so much, Swaram. This is one precious moment I am not going to forget in a long, long time.
Now let me pass these on to some of my favorite people.
The Friends Award goes to...
...the first ever friend I've made in the blog world, an amazing human being, an inspiration to so many, a survivor in the true sense of the word, an awesome writer - Alexis. Wish he wrote more often.
....the Sparkling Chef with an awesome sense of humor, with amazing story telling powers (he gets very humble if you tell him that), the next best thing after God (in his own words), someone whom I adore like my little brother - Mathew . He is a great cook too ;-) (Any eligible girls out there?)
.... the first friend I made after my break from the blogworld, a lady with such a wicked sense of humor, you can almost see that grin on her face when you read her posts. Mother of two cutest girls, friend to many of us - Nancy . I know you have this award from Swaram, but my list just will not be complete without you, my dear,
....a friend in real life first and then in the blog world, my wonderful colleague and partner in crime - Sreeram. My life would be so dull without you, Rum,
....her narration fills your mouth with water and the pictures makes you wish you were there with her-mishmash the lady with the golden hands,
...to one fantastic Home Maker, I am honoured to be considered a friend of hers,
... the new friends I have made -Shilpa the lady who adds masala to our lives, Meira the one who created havoc in Landmark with her husband and Solio whose opinionated mind comes out with such deep soliloquies at times and then have us in splits.
....to Swaram. The rules do not say I cannot give it back to you and you most definitely are my friend
......the word lovely blog immediately brings this Amazing Gardener to mind. It is difficult to decide which is more lovely- her writing or her garden. Thanks to her I now know the different kinds of birds and animals that inhabits Mumbai (i am not referring to the two legged species here)
....a couple who stays in Italy with their heart in Kerala, who gives amazing insights into life - wild and domestic.
....someone who lives on a wing and a prayer. She writes so effortlessly, yet does not agree when her mother says there is a book in her.
....an amazing lady who makes us think one day and then make us howl in laughter the very next day. Her posts are always so thought provoking. This is one Home Maker whom I absolutely admire
I would like have tea with all my favorite bloggers, so this tea cup award goes to all of you mentioned here ...
Their blogs have become so addictive, even a day without checking them out is pure torture.
The Addicting Blog Award goes to...
Phew!! that was one long speech. Now let me take a break ;-)
