in words, sights and sounds

Wow. Another award. What can I say: Awards are not only nice to receive but also a great way to help promote other blogs of interest.

Many thanks to Michaela, the strong, impressive and talented woman behind “the mmmmm family“, for this lovely nomination! Michaela is a real fighter. She has started her blog to create memories for Mike – her disabled husband who suffers from memory loss after two spinal operations – of things the mmmmm family has experienced, and ‘to help him remember all the things he has yet to forget’. I have only recently discovered Michaela’s blog and find her posts moving and inspiring at the same time. You should definitely go and check it out!! Best of luck to Michaela and her family – the ‘five Ms’ seem to be an emotionally healthy and happy family, despite the challenges they are faced with. Way to go!

As always, these awards come with certain rules. Here they are:

1. Display the award logo

2. Link back to the person who nominated you

3. State 7 things about yourself

4. Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award.

And now it’s time for rule number 3 – here are the seven facts regarding the Canary:

1. The Canary (not a crazy cat lady) has a soft spot for cats, despite their constant desire to hunt members of its extended family and colleagues. Note: The Canary’s own cats have been successfully tamed. One is sitting on the Canary’s lap as we speak.

2. The Canary loves to swim, particularly in nice and clean Olympic-size pools.

3. The Bird’s affinity for water is also reflected in its love for warm showers (Nah, not cold…).

4. The Canary is very interested in international politics but has never had the desire to join a political party.

5. The Canary is an outdoor-bird and much prefers an active vacation over days of lying on a beach. Looking at the sea with a glass of wine after an interesting day is lovely tho.

6. The Canary has never been to China and wants to go!

7.  The Canary is a confessing chocoholic.

 … and here are my ten nominations for The Best Moment Award:

…oh wait, just a quick word before I begin with my list of nominees: as you will know, there is absolutely no pressure to accept the award, particularly as there seems to be a plethora of awards out there and nominees are usually not being consulted beforehand. Just take my nomination as a sign of the Canary’s appreciation for your blogs…and play along if you like ; )
