Why, Merci Buckets!

Imagine my surprise and delight this morning when I logged on and found that one of my favourite bloggers, Tara, at From Dawn Till Rusk has very generously given me my first ever blogging award! I hardly feel worthy being a newbie 'n' all. I wept with joy (well it is Friday and it's been an emotionally challenging week.) So, I've popped on my best bejewelled taffeta gown and a good shoe to graciously accept. Thank you very much!

I'm passing this award on to other bloggers I love, who leave me smiling and speechless at the sheer brilliance of their words. Go forth and let them brighten up your day.

As usual there are bloggy rules to follow

1. Link to the giver.
2. Nominate up to seven other fab blogs and link to them.
3. Leave messages announcing their rise to greatness.


  1. Woooo Hoooooo. Your new bling suits you very well. And not a mere trinket either. Solid Gold!!!

  2. Thanks Dave. Would it be rude of me to sell, the going rate for Gold being at a record high these days? I could do with some extra cash for school shoes!

  3. I think we’d attract a higher price if we sold them as a pair. We could get some fake ones made up to take their place and Tara would be none the wiser.

    In fact let’s cut Tara in on the deal!!!!

  4. Yes and congrats to you too Dave - meant to say that on my previous comment. V well deserved!

  5. Many congrats from a stay-at-home dad!

  6. Congrats and all. Also thanks for the intros to new and terrific blogs - having been out of circulation for a while, I appreciate the heads up.

  7. I don't know this for a fact, but I'm pretty sure that if I had offered an award made entirely of chocolate it would have been worth a darn site more to you mom/mum. Just sayin . . .

  8. Thanks so much M/M! And I loved the previous post, btw. I wonder why, given my current situation with my oldest...?

  9. thanking you most kindly, my dear x

  13. Now, I know I haven't been reading you very long...but what I HAVE read, so far, I totally love. So, yesterday I did the same because my life karma was totally sucking. You have an award from me on your blog. You totally deserve it.
