An Award and An Update

It is very hot here - get me some more water please Mum!
My good friend Moki gave me this wonderful award - Thank you so much Moki, it is very much appreciated.

The rules for the award are as follows:

As stated on their blogs, "This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, also for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium.
When you receive this award it is considered a "special honor".
The rules for passing this honor on are as follows:
1. Pick 5 blogs that you would like to award this honor to.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

I have tried to find cats that haven't received this award - but it seems to have done the rounds, so if you haven't received it yet please feel free to award it to yourself - I am sure you are very inspiring!

As many of you know, my Mum's kidney's are failing (they are working at 17% of normal) and sometimes she doesn't feel very good, she feels lethargic and sometimes the toxins in your body give you painfull joints and make you nauseous. The people she works for are wonderful people and they decided that it would be best for Mum if she came into work at 10:00 in the morning rather than her usual 8:00 from now on (all for the same pay). Isn't that the nicest thing ever! Mum sometimes takes home work to do, but it is much easier to do at home than at the office. Mum is still very busy, but hopefully things will quiet down after the auditors leave in mid-August.

Thank you all for visiting me while I was not blogging - because of the Mum, sigh.... She does try to get around to a few blogs every day, but I won't be happy until she gets back to blogging every day!
