I will be MIA- Got an Award too

Thanks to my peeps for your love and concern for my health. I am getting better but took a fall off a staircase. I am getting better too. I have backlog of assignments to finish within a couple of weeks and I am also going for a training at Calabar for a week. This will make me MIA on blogville. Not to worry, I will miss you all and come back safely.... I have delayed passing on this fantastic award I received from Funkola, Brown Sugar and Rita (thanks ladies) to other 7 bloggers. It will be tough to pick just seven bloggers but I will and still add more...

This award goes to:
  1. Grahamn Kracker
  2. Ore's Note
  3. Abbie
  4. Poeticallytinted
  5. Chari
  6. Chioma
  7. Lisa
  8. Vera
  9. Criz Cats
To the awardees. I love your blogs and I will like you to pass this on to another 7 bloggers or more.
The Rules:
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 that they have received an award
