Accepting the Premio Dardos Award

I would like to accept the Premio Dardos Award and would like to thank Ruth from for the nomination.

Premio Dardos  means “Prize Darts” in Spanish. The award to given  for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.

As everyone always says, it was difficult to narrow down these nominations. I have also been nominated for the Inspirational Blogger Award so I have tried to distinguish between the two. It is not easy tracking blogs down in my reader so I have inevitably left blogs out which I love. I am intending to put some kind of address book together for my blogging activities soon. It’s hard to keep track of things once you follow more than a couple of blogs.

I am nominating the following blogs for this award and recommend you go and check them all out because they are all very well written blogs, which I love and also fit the parameters of the award:

Max the Dog:

Dr Alun Withey…

Jo Robinson :


Musings of Puppy Doc:

Behind the White Coat :

Rachel Mankowitz:

Such Small Hands:

Ali Isaac Storyteller:

Sirena Tales:

Back to Real Life: :

Bucket List Publications:

Noelle Granger

Just So You Know:

Chronic Conditions and Life Lessons:
Yesterday and today: Merril’s historical musings :



Congratulations to all the nominees. Well done!!

xx Rowena

    Thank you so much for this honor, Rowena! And congratulations on your award – kudos!
    I have already received this award, so I will move aside for someone else. But it is always wonderful to be recognized by a fellow blogger, and I am so very grateful.

    You’re welcome! I love your blog. Did you end up finding my link to my post about how a journalist collected sunflower seeds from the MH17 crash scene and is trying to the seeds back to Australia to friends and family of the victims? It’s an amazing story and if you could possibly forward it to your colleagues who attended the Melbourne conference they would probably appreciate it. xx Rowena

    Hi Kaitlin,
    When I read your post about going home from your fly fishing holiday, you were echoing the cries of my heart. The kids go back to school on Wednesday and with that the whole madness of activities etc starts up again. Although we live metres from the beach, we stay at my parents place at Palm Beach a lot during the holidays and it is right on the waterfront, which is quite tidal. We go out sailing in a little laser or kayaking at high tide and I love walking with the kids and dogs a lot the flats at low tide which is quite a moonscape pock marked with soldier crab holes. I love watching the crabs scuttle across the sand seemingly on stilts. They are hilarious and our little Lady dog tries eating them. My son loves fishing but we’re all hopeless. My uncle took him out and we have to line up another trip. I was so relieved when he turned up and helped Mister catch his first fish. I thought he at least looked like a fisherman. I even struggle to get the line out. I will share your blog with him. I am always looking for ways of encouraging his reading xx Rowena

    You’re welcome Noelle. I always say it’s always nice to be asked and being nominated for an award twice, isn’t such a hardship. You obviously really deserved it!! xx Rowena

    Sounds like an amazing place to be. I started flyfishing in Alaska about ten years ago. Fishing in the middle of no where really gave me a peace I cannot describe. So these moments on the water sort of bring me back to that place. That is why I love fly fishing, especially catch and release, because it has a bit of grace to it, and reflection as well. Thank you for your note. I hope you can make it out to your beach as often as possible! Cheers~ Kaitlin

    Big congratulations Rowena – awesome award that you absolutely deserve! Thank you so much for including me – accepts humbly with three hour speech in the making. 🙂

    Looking forward to the speech, Jo. I been really pleased with how my blog is progressing and I’m slowly tackling Twitter. I get the kids back to school and Wednesday and then my writing goes back to “office mode”. Wednesday is going to be a rude shock as we have become very relaxed during our long summer holidays and we’ve now ended up on Western Australian time…about 3 hours behind. I have mastered the sleep-in of late. This is going to be very painful!! Take care & best wishes, Rowena
