The Sunshine Blogger Award

I should have done this long ago. But the last months were so busy! And I kept saying to myself: “Well, I have to do my flat repairing first and then I’ll sit and write a proper acceptance”, “I have to upload this video and then…”, “I have to… and then…” … As time passed things seemed to get worse. My to do list grew and grew…1376932506163846.png

That’s why one of my New Year resolutions was to write the acceptances in the end.

Sorry for being so late. I’m a very bad cat.  

So, long ago I was nominated for this award by a wonderful blogger Mastress Alita, whose amazing Cat Chronicles I adore so much.  Don’t forget to check her wonderful Short Stories and Teatime Tuesday as well!

Thank you very much, dear Alita! ❤

My Nominees

Not all of my nominees write Sim Stories. Moreover, not all of the blogs relate to The Sims. But in the rules I haven’t found anything against that. So I hope that’s OK. As all of these bloggers bring sunshine into their readers’ life – with their Sim Stories, with their Sim creations, with their blogs full of optimism and happiness.
