Sweet Dreams Are Made of These…

How sweet it is to be loved by you…oh yes it is!!

I am so very grateful, surprised and honoured (and also slightly embarrassed – I’m British you know, and not used to receiving all these accolades!) to be nominated for the Super Sweet Blogging Award from my dear fellow blogger, the delightful Tazein. (If you want inspiration, do visit her incredibly inspiring, ‘transcending borders’ Super Sweet blog!)

Thank you so much dear Tazein for your nomination and for your support of my blog.  I really do appreciate it!

Of course, as before, there a few rules to be completed for this award, as follows:


1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you.  

2. Answer 5 Super Sweet questions.

3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging Award in your blog post.

4. Nominate a baker’s dozen (13) other deserving bloggers

5. Notify your Super Sweet nominees on their blog

Rules 1 and 3 already completed (love this colourful, super sweet logo!), so I’ll go straight to Rule number 2:


1-Cookies or Cake?

Hmmm…I like both, but I’ll go with cake!

2-Chocolate or Vanilla?

Vanilla for cakes.

3–Favorite Sweet Treat?

Dark chocolate.

4-When do you crave sweet things the most?

At all the wrong times…afternoons, evenings…

5-Sweet Nick Name?

Known to be called ‘Shezzer’ by some 🙂

For Rule number 4, I thought long and hard about this one and found it really, really difficult.  There are so many wonderful blogs I would like to nominate, even those I’ve already nominated for  previous awards (I nominate you again dear blogging friends in my heart!) but in the end (and in an effort to make things a little easier on my part!) I decided to narrow it down to those bloggers who write about three subjects very close to my heart – Asperger’s Syndrome, life for ex-pats (living, or have lived, in foreign countries) and writing (including blogging tips and advice).  This has been a great exercise in looking for and finding completely new blogs (new to me that is).  I have really enjoyed reading all about these bloggers and their posts.

Many ‘sweet’ congratulations to you all!  Now I just have to complete Rule number 5 and let you all know about your nominations, which I am about to do right now!

Get ready to be sprinkled with some sugar & have a super sweet day 🙂
