Awards from fellow bloggers

Recently, I’ve been honoured by three bloggers with awards. Over the last few years, I have chosen not to pass on such awards – because that would make me have to pick one blogger over the other and there are just too many to mention.

My grateful thanks to

Ruth Curran of Cranium Crunches. You might recall that I intereviewed Ruth here fairly recently about her book Being Brain Healthy.

Darla M Sands who is currently writing a book. I look forward to interviewing her too soon.

Tina Basu of Twinkling Tina Writes a truly versatile blogger herself.
