Cherry on Top

Question: What's pink and square and make Glowless go Eeeeek!?

Answer: A 'Cherry on Top' blog award from the Farmer's Wife at Life in the Country!

It's for "beautiful blogs with that little bit extra" which makes me wonder if it's a thinly veiled way of saying I'm fat? No? Phew! I have put it over there (>>>>) in my sidebar and called it 'Squishy'.

I want to send a massive thank you to The Farmer's Wife - she is awesome. Not just because she thinks I'm "absolutely hilarious" (see that, that's a real quote!), but because she has a really great blog about her life on a farm with The Farmer and The Farmchildren. She even has tractors and chooks! I find the notion of farm life quite romantic so I read her blog and look at her pictures and daydream about what it would be like if it was Map Guy, Tricky and I. Plus she's in WA and that immediately makes her pretty cool.
The award comes with some rules:
1.  Thank the person who sent it to you
2.  Copy the award
3.  Explain three things you like to do
4.  Send the award onto 5 other blogs that you think are deserving

Well I've done the first two, so here's he last two:

Three things I like to do
Twitter - I am seriously becoming addicted to Twitter. I used to be a big instant messager type person but with Twitter being limited to 140 characters it means people (including myself) can't waffle on about crap! Hooray!

Go out - It doesn't matter where, be it out to coffee with friends, window shopping at a fancy boutique (OK, maybe just Target) or heading in to the city to have lunch with Map Guy, as long as I'm out of the house and doing something, I'm a happy chappy.

And because I'm feeling a bit soppy and mooshy with all the love;

Morning cuddles in bed - In the wee hours of the morning when Tricky won't settle I bring him in to bed with us and we both fall in to a peaceful sleep (*ahem* sometimes) ... then in the morning I feel his chubby little hands exploring my face so I open my eyes and he gives me a massive grin.

So without further ado...

The award goes to...

Glen's Life - Because last time he got an award he discussed why pizza was more important than sex and I kinda just wanna see what he does this time. Plus I'd like to see a girly pink award on his page.

It's Impossible To Be Unhappy In A Poncho - Sparkly Tiara describes herself as a modern woman, semi-devoted mother, wine whore... that alone makes me luff her. Plus I met her in real life (it's kinda like blogging with 3D glasses on) and she's cool. Oh and she featured Tricky (without knowing it was him) on her post about things that make you go squeeeeeee - that gives her a MASSIVE tick.

Forever - Emma Jane is fan-freakin-tastic. She's a young mum with so much wisdom it makes me think she must have been a philosopher in a former life.

CRAP Mumma - Because her Creative Relaxed Approach Parenting is a goal of mine. But before you go read her stuff, a word of warning, you have to do your pelvic floor exercises because her stuff is pee-in-your-pants funny!

The Mama Diaries - I love people who will stick up for what they believe in and Peggy certainly does that. It helps that I agree with pretty much everything she has to say too!

So that's it, Ladies and Gents, the awards have been handed out. Go forth and spread the bloggy love.


  1. I love that moment when your kids reach out and wake you in the morning and you open your eyes and their cute little faces are staring at you! And then they poke you in the eye!! x

  2. Oh, I've had such a shitty week - this pregnancy has really been taking it out of me and I've been so sick and grumpy - but seeing this put a smile on my face! Thankyou very much for the award. :) I am off to pick 5 blogs too! x

  3. Congratulations, from what I've seen you are a very worthy blogerista and I'm going to enjoy receiving regular bursts of 'glowing' wisdom as I'm now a follower!

  4. You're most welcome, Peggy, I love your passion!

  5. Not sure about glowing wisdom, but there sure is a lot of non glowing rambling!
