Award, awards, awards. And yes, I left it a little long.

zombie_chicken_awardI have been incredibly lazy busy recently doing nothing saving the world. Instead of picking up my lovely awards, presenting them in all their shining glory and bowing gracefully to the generous folks that awarded me, I shoved them into the cupboard. Time to get them out.

Dear Emily at Maternal Tales, thank you so much for the Zombie Chicken award. You know that I always wanted to have this one? Plus, I like that there’s not that much to do about it, as I am so busy!

“The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken – excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all.”

This award goes to:

Another Emily, who just started her London fashion/style/foodie blog London Zest. I love to follow her on her quest to discover hidden London gems. Or sometimes just being reminded of all the wonderful places that are just around the corner.

The lovely, lovely Rose and her lovely blog A Rose beyond the Thames. Every post, every image is so thoughtfully composed. It makes me feel like a kid that so wants to touch everything but is too well behaved to reach out her sticky fingers.

That Girl 39, because I just love her style and her humour.

Perfectly Happy Mum, an oldie but goodie and one of my all time favourites. (Sorry Peggy, time to face the truth. You are ancient, in blog years. Tu sais que je t’aime!)

Mrs Fab at Looking Fab in your Fourties. I had to collect myself from the floor after reading her review on the London Fashion Week reports. A refreshing take on fashion.
