Welcome to the very first nomination for the Kindred Spirit Award.

If you read Yesterdays post (and shame on you if you didn't;) then you will know what it's all about.

I've faffed around with the picture a bit - It wasn't quite right before.

After all, if an award is coming from me then it's got to be turquoise right?

Actually, I didn't have a clue what I was doing, saw this thing called colour saturation and clicked on it and half the colour disappeared ...

(but I kind of like it that way.  It's a little bit messy, just like me :)

First of all the rules (dammit, there HAVE to be a couple!;)

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.

My first nominee for the Kindred Spirit Award is (drum roll) ......

Lesley from Postcard Pam Goes Large.

Don't hate me Lesley, I know I've just tagged you in the Blog Buddies Questionnaire and that's more than enough to be going on with I expect!

So, why did I choose Lesley?

Well, there are so many people I could have tagged (and may yet do!!:) but Lesley is pretty special to me.

She's been around since almost the start of this blog (that's 10 months now!!).

She's left lovely comments.  Given helpful advice.  Been a shoulder to cry on.  MADE me cry with laughter (and once or twice with sadness). 

Pulled me up when I've been down.  Laughed at me and with me when those damned 'things' have happened and, although we have yet to meet (and I have NO doubt that we will!) she has become a true friend.

Aside from all that, why do I like her so much?


She is F*cking hilarious!!

Don't believe me?

Read THIS - I defy anyone not to be rolling on the floor with laughter!

She reminds me of me in so many ways - a little scatty, a little mad with the same sense of the ridiculous.

There's SO much I want to tell you about her but she says it so much better than I ever could.

Read about her new job as a Postie here.

Read THIS for a one liner that made me snort coffee through my nose and also because it's one of THE most beautiful posts  (and photos) I've read so far.

Just READ her dammit she's a F*CKING STAR!!!!

Love you PP ;) xx

Rest assured there WILL be more awards flying out of Fudge because you lot are SO fucking awesome! :)

I have written a letter to the Queen about you. I expect she's showing it to the corgis now.
You've made me well up AND it was lovely to see which posts you enjoyed most.
WE are definitely doing tea and scones somewhere near a beach soon! xx
