The Kindred Spirit Award

This has been on the back burner for a while along with my acceptance of two awards (no Cranky and Lou, I haven't forgotten your kindness I promise. x)

So, if you haven't come across it before then check out this post and don't forget to pop over and say hello to Postcard Pam, I promise you won't regret it!

I have got to know many bloggers in my 10 months of blogging.

Some have come and gone.  Some are still there but we don't chat so much these days.  Partly that's my fault and partly that's just life.

There is great value in each and every person that reads my blog.  I'm constantly amazed that anyone wants to read me at all and I feel privileged that you do so thank you :)

Some people have transcended that cyber space and we have formed a link.

With some its on a regular basis.  With others it's less frequent but the link is still there.  Like friends you don't see on an every day basis but when you do, well, you just pick up seamlessly where you left off.

These people are MY kindred spirits.

We may have completely different lives.  We may live many miles or even continents apart but I feel as close to them as if they were sitting here beside me sharing a cup of tea some cake and a good gossip or walking on the beach, the wind in our hair just being.

Without getting too maudling, I know that we could (and with some, who knows we might one day).

So, without any further ado, I give you my Kindred Spirits.

I hope you do drop by and say hi.  Im going to link to one of their posts that for whatever reason has stuck with me.

Lou from SunnySide - this one might surprise you Lou given all the great posts you've written about your new life (all worth a read btw).

Sal from Team O'Toole - you may have been having a really tough time lately Sal but you still managed to make me smile (Oh, and I'm TRYING not to be too offended bearing in mind that I am in my 40's ;)

The Lakehouse Writer - Seriously, check out her beautiful photography and accompanying words - I'm in awe!

Kelloggsvillie -  for SO many reason not least that she is special to me having been my 100th follower.  It's much more than that though K ;)
Rule Time:

1)  Choose between 1 and 3 blogs that you want to pass the award on to and link to them in your post.

2)  Do a short (or as long as you like write up about the blog of your choice telling us a little about them and why you feel they are a kindred spirit.

3)  Link to a post on their blog that you feel epitomises the writer.

4) Don't forget to leave a comment on their blog telling them that you have passed the award on to them.

5) Oh, and don't forget to grab your award above and either stick it in your post or in your side bar.

That's it really, simple (a little like me:)

ahhh bugger! I'm really crap at carrying on these memes but I really appreciate the sentimentality (that word worries me with the huge mental part in the middle - makes me feel shifty about myself!!) Anyhooo - I know it's nothing to do with the 100, it's simply about eggs, butter, sugar, flour and lashings of jam and cream :)
