It's Award Time

Denise over at L' Aussie Writing just gave me an award!  Many thanks Denise - you are too kind!  The award was all about being Fair Dinkum' Yes that's a link if you aren't sure what being fair dinkum' is, but suffice to say it's an Australian term for someone who is genuine, honest, true to their word.  I am honoured Denise, many thanks.

I really enjoy blog awards as they give me a list of new blogs to go and visit and I always find a gem and so I'm passing this award on to three bloggers I always very much enjoy and who visit here regularly, encouraging me to continue.  I think they are fair dinkum' gems and I hope you visit each one of them and say "g'day".

My L'Aussie Fair Dinkum' Awards go to:

Firstly, Deb Shucka from Catbird Scout. If you want to read glorious descriptions that resonate in your heart, please visit Deb's blog.  Deb's area is memoir writing and many of her postings are about the delights of her world and her adventures with faithful dog Toby. It's a blog to bring you peace and joy.  As honest and genuine as you can find.

The second is a blog of an entirely different flavour.  Visit Jayne of Our Great Southern Land for Australian history and general quirky madness eg two of her most recent postings are entitled "OMG I added WHAT to the Chrissy pudd???" and "Has bited mah nailz, I can bitz yur, yez?" respectively. Jayne's a fair dinkum' Aussie battler!

The third is Yaya of Whispering Pines.  Yaya blogs about her family and you'll delight at their antics.  Yaya is renown for putting on celebrations that cannot be topped - check out the Hallowe'en Parties if you don't believe me.

That's it.  I know it's the silly season and time is short so just four blogs for you to check out (Yes don't forget L'Aussie Writing - a prolific Australian writer and fellow Nano Winner who started this award.)

Blog winners there's nothing for you to do except bask in the glory, oh and pass it on if you would like to.


  1. Thank you Cheryl for letting me know you'd posted your award. Congratulations to those you've passed it onto. I don't follow any of these blogs so I'll be checking them out! Thank you!

    Avagreatweekend! Hoo roo!

  2. I am so tickled to be considered fair dinkum, Cheryl, especially by you. Thank you for your kind words and for the link. I look forward to meeting more of your friends. I've just been to L'Aussie's blog and am on my way to visit the other two you've mentioned here.

  3. Well, aren't you just the sweetest thing! Thanks so much! I don't suppose Hugh Jackman, a real Aussie cutie is going to come over and hand me this award?? Just kidding! (sort of!) I can't wait to visit these other blogs. I've met so many wonderful people and learned a ton from blogs like yours about keeping this earth healthy. You're the greatest!

  4. Congrats to all the winners...and to YOU!!!
