ASpoonfulOfSuga receives the WordPress Family Award and nominates 22 bloggers


Shaun from has been kind enough to nominate me for this award.  This is a very interesting  award. Look at what Shaun had to say.

This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started  this award on MARCH 4th 2013 on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award. Thank you, Shaun @

Family is something dear to me that I don’t have. I am not very close to my own, and outside the blood ties and the responsibility there isn’t a relation and this has been the cause of a lot of sadness on my part. Aside from my pets and my lady I generally feel alone a lot of the time. So for someone to  consider me as part of a family it is very touching even if it is online.  When I started ASPoonful I just wanted to talk aloud and be heard by someone other than myself. I share things about myself, I share what’s on my mind, I tell dirty jokes, I talk about what I am drinking, and there have been a few bloggers who have responded in turn with a lot of kindness which was a soothing balm on the tough times I have been went through behind the scenes. So with that said I would like to nominate them:

The Lady
Daan van den Bergh
Lady Hasty from HastyWords
Jen Feverwood
Ms. SummerSoltice
Jim C

Sista :

I would also like to nominate a string of new subscribers and commenters. They feel like new family not only in the fact that they havent asked me to borrow money or help them carry something heavy. They have left lovely comments and I really felt engaged through their comments!!!!!!!!!!

Dr Rex:
Australia’s Finest:
Ms Jiggly:
Ms Cheeks :

Final Note:

I do not have any internet in my new place, I have to post by phone which is impossible. I have been sending out many pre written posts that have been in my draft box. I haven’t been posting as much as I would have liked, and its been really hard to comment so please forgive I will get to you all I promise!!! Mean time Cheers, these beers and shots of whiskey tonight will be for you




  1. Aaaaaaaw cheers, mate! I’m very touched!

    Yes, family is a wonderful thing, even if it is a virtual one. I -too, have poured my heart out here. The good, the bad and the ugly and there has always been a kind blogger – or many, reaching out to me and letting me know all will be ok in the end.



  2. Oh dear friend of mine, I get surprised every time I see a special mention of my site in one of your posts. I haven’t been writing for the past few weeks because of some recent snags at work. I also go online on weekends or else, I’d get nothing done on weekdays :-). Every time I do, I drop by here because I know there’s always something valuable here I can take with me before I turn off my computer for the day. You deserve to earn the accolades and attention you’ve been recently getting. I am proud of you.

    That you’ve been able to get a new place for you, your lady, and your pets is special reason enough to celebrate so I’m taking that mug of beer you just handed to us your readers. Thank you, my dear.


  3. Awww.. I’m well underway into my Friday night drunken stupor, but I’m still touched by the nomination – more so by your saying that your nominees are like family to you. THAT deserves another drink.


  4. Congrats sweetie and thank you! What a lovely thing to wake up to!

    I’ve always enjoyed your posts for their intelligence, humour, willingness to talk about the big stuff (politics, sexism, racism, religion etc) and don’t-give-a-shitness, keep it up please!

    Big love

  5. Oh goodness! It’s an honor to be surrounded by so many great bloggers and for you to consider me part of the “family”…thank you so much. Blogging helped me in many ways and the support I got…I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s funny how that goes huh?

    Do not worry about the comments and stuff! Big congrats on your new place and here’s to a new chapter filled with fun adventures! Oh! And dancing!! *clinks with tea cup*

    Big hugs!
