There are a few reasons. The main one though is that I enjoy it.

The Super Sweet Blog Award

Hey guys! I have news…


My little blog has been nominated for The Super Sweet Blog award by the equally sweet Yvette  (AKA Strawberryquicksand). She leaves the loveliest comments and always makes me smile. As you know, I’m fairly new to the blogging game so I feel really humbled that she thought of me. Thank you!

So now I have to follow a list of rules that go with this nomination which you can see below. Point one is that I have to say cheers to Yvette for the nomination (check) I have to answer a few questions about myself and nominate other people. Let’s do this thing!



Thank the Super Sweet BLOGGER that nominated you.

Answer 5 Super Sweet questions.

Include the Super Sweet Blogging Award in your blog post.

Nominate your nominees on their blog.



(Please all nominees answer the same questions)

  1. Cookies or Cake? – Cake, especially if it’s carrot cake. Cookies are good and all, but it’s just not in the same league as carrot cake..      Chocolate or Vanilla? – Chocolate. I adore the stuff. In fact, I’m pretty sure I eat so much of the stuff that it runs through my veins.
  2.      Favourite Sweet Treat? – Hmmm this is a toughie, but I think it has to be cheesecake.
  3. When do you crave sweet things most? – After dinner, usually while I’m drinking a cup of tea.
  4. Sweet Nickname – I have so many nicknames, I’m not sure any of them are sweet, though!

Sooo, my nominees are:

The Storm Brewing – I’ve nominated Sarah Jane for thus award because all her food looks amazing and always makes me hungry!

The Jackie Blog – because there’s just something about Jackie’s blog that cheers me up just by looking at it. I don’t even have to read any of it before I start feeling better. That, and I think that Lollipop Tuesday is a great idea.

My (dis)abled life. -I always really enjoy the heart-warming and honest nature of Ali’s posts.

I’d also like to nominate my friend and fellow blogger Lucy Milne who blogs over at Blogger, without whom I would have probably never started this blog

So there you have it Happy reading everyone 🙂
