Yeah, yeah, get those sunnies out, I am Brilliant!!!




Got this from Silvara  and Anamika of Thinking Cramps and Roop and Itchy. Am honoured and flattered. And as always amazed that I actually get a readership for my self obsessed whinings. So girls, *dramatic pause to daub at overflowing eyes, standing with hand on the heart, mouth half open sort of pose, minus tiara and slinky gown*, thank you, thank you, for the ego boost.

 So without much ado, here go the rules:

This award is for blogs whose content and/or design are brilliant as well as creative.The purpose of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogosphere.

1. When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back
2. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
3. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog’
4. Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize (optional).
5. And then we pass it on!

And here’s where I pass it on, thinking hard…

Dipali: She’s comfortable, cheering, and feels like you’re sitting across the room, chatting to an old friend.

Suki: If I had a younger sister I think I would have liked one like her. Head screwed on straight, focused on and loving her education in a way few youngsters these days do, and an insight into an age I have long long left behind.

 Chandni: Read her. She’s the kind of BFF I wish I had. Sensible. Practical. With a twist of fun.

Grail: A sense of humour to die for. Brilliant, ballsy and the kind of woman I wish I had the courage to be. Raising three children on her ownsome lonesome, with one of them so close to my own I feel a kinship with her.

Sraikh: Four children and a very very determined mother. She puts me to complete shame by the ease with which she handles her life, her children and whittles self down to svelte while I just keep promising myself that someday I will.

CeeKay: She awarded me on karmickids. I nominate her back here. She intimidates me, with her ability to think things through clearly and succintly and the wonderful way she raises her daughters is an inspiration to me.

Surabhi: She’s fiesty. She’s fun. She writes like a dream, making poetry with words and visuals. She makes me feel I’m not the only 70s born individual in the blogosphere. And I am pre booking her gorgeous daughter for my son.

 Blog winners, you know what to do!
