you make my day award

The lovely and wonderful illustrator and printmaker, yellow monday, has tagged me with this very sweetly named 'you make my day award'. And the most incredible thing is that along with getting this award, something else made my day today. My cat, who has been missing for 2 long months, was found today by an amazingly caring cat-loving woman called Pieta about 10 mins walk from our house. Sumi is alive but injured and is currently at the vet tonight recovering from dehydration (it's been a hot summer). We are shell shocked but very very happy. Tomorrow night we might get her back from the vet (if all is well) and then begins her recovery with us back home. So.......what an amazing day it's been and then this award to top it off! Wooohooooo! Thanks yellow monday :)

"You make my day-Award" works like this:

1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make your day.
2. Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
3. Tell the award winners that they've won by commenting on their blogs
4. (optional) display the award with a link to the blog who nominated you

It was hard to pick just 5 blogs. But here are 5 that I've been reading of lot of lately. And yours too yellow monday!
