I'm very happy to have received two awards today.

The first is the Heartfelt Blogger Award which has been given to me by Gaelikaa at Gaelikaa's Diary.  Gaelikaa writes so beautifully about her life in India, and it's always so enjoyable to read.

Thankyou Gaelikaa xx

The conditions for this award are as follows-

Display the logo.

Nominate some blogs that make you feel comfy or warm inside.

Link to your nominees.

Let them know they have been nominated by commenting.

Link to the person from whom you received the award.

So I pass this on to-

Maggie May at Nuts in May

Monalisa at My Life

auntiegwen at auntie gwens diary

Fly in the Web at French Leave


The second award is from Kaibee at Diary of an all Pakistani Girl and it's a present for my blog...not me!  I've mentioned Kaibee before.  She really is a lovely young girl who blogs about her life in Karachi  (and she always says such nice things to me!)

So I would like to pass this award on to the following blogs, that are interesting reading, or something a bit different from the norm, or blogs which give useful advice.
