Friday is Award Day!

A couple of weeks ago the lovely Not Supermum gave me an award. How very lovely of her is that? Unfortunately since then I haven't had much time to do anything with my lovely shiny award. It has sat collecting dust in the trophy room while I run around like a headless chicken. Now though I have polished it up and I am putting it here for all of you to go 'ooooh' and 'aaah'....

There is some rather fabulous text that goes with this award. Here it is: “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

So, now not only do I get to go up on the podium and weep copiously and thank everyone I have ever met but I get to make other people go through the same thing. Huzzah. I only wish that I could do the links properly - I'll try but last time I turned the entire blog post into one giant link so don't hold out any hopes.

I would like to present this award to... (drum roll please)
Katyboo because she is the one who seduced me into this blogging malarkey.
Welsh Hills Again because she writes beautifully, and has also chosen to live in Wales which is worthy of an award in itself.
Not Enough mud anyone who kisses an elephant and gets set up on dates by the waiters in the hotel she is staying in deserves an award!
Country Lite because her blog is great and you should all rush off and read it.
Confuzzledom because she has a new and shiny flat and an award would fill her mantlepiece nicely!
Singlutionary This is a blog which gives the insider scoop on single life on the other side of the pond...
Australian in Florence. Monika lives the life I sometimes want - in Florence with a husband who she loves, travelling round to see as much as they can, eating wonderful food and then bloggin all about it!
Home Office Mum because this is a woman who has her own business, two small boys, a husband etc etc and is going to head off and sail a clipper ship for weeks and weeks because she can. Now that deserves and award!

Oh dear. Typing out all those links individually is exhausting work and I think I need to go to a post awards party to recover.....

wowee thanks, darlin', AND links, too! just the thing to set me up for the weekend - and Elizm and Mud are great, aren't they. I don't know the others so will slope off for a look.

Monika said...

Oh you are SO sweet!!!! Thanks. What a lovely way to end a Friday afternoon! I'll be in the UK next week, unfortunately nowhere near Wales, otherwise would make sure we met for coffee (promise not to wear a cravat).
Have a wonderful week!

Exmoorjane said...

OK, whizzed over from Milla's to see what award you've given her and.....shock, stark disbelief!!!.... charming? kind? not interested in self-aggrandizement? Think it must be the wrong Milla! The one I know is mean and tough and waves her trophies all over the place!
However, she is possibly the best writer I've ever come across, so suppose the old baggage deserves another bit of blog bling!
You're spot-on with ElizabethM and Muddy though!

Oooh, thank you! I feel most privileged! I shall proudly display it on my blog once I have my very own computer again, complete with internets.

Milla - anyone who survives gold cup week deserves an award in my book!
Monika - darn it - are you deliberately coming nowhere near Wales (a ploy used by many people I can assure you!). Have a good trip and enjoy the award.
Exmoorjane - aaah, validation for my award giving skills. Phew. I'm not sure where Milla will fit her award as there seem to be multiple ones on her blogging shelf already. by the way - love the id photo!
Bevchen - hope it helps to decorate the new flat! Now, hurry up and get back online..... we miss you.

I just happened upon your blog! You should check mine out!

Home Office Mum said...

THank you very much for my lovely award. Have been out of action this weekend as away. The only reason I'm online now is because my devil children decided that 5am was the perfect time to wake up and pee on someone else's carpet. So I've spent the last hour trying to throttle them quietly so as not wake everyone else up. Sigh. But at least my award is something cheery.

Thank you!! What a nice surprise for a Monday morning - and there is sunshine outside as well!!

Thank you so much for my fabulous award. I have posted about it and thanked you there, but realised how rude it was of me not to visit and thank you here.

Hope all is going well with the house.

elizabethm said...

What a great surprise, thank you. I am pretty keen on your blog too!

THANK YOU! Welsh Girl! THis is such an honor! And I just realized that I've been spelling Welsh wrong all night. Maybe you should de-ward me.

Sorry! I have been so out of it for the past week or so but I'm coming back with a vengeance next week! I promise (and I'll re-award my award then!)

THANK YOU! I am so excited!
