Just as I was logging off to head for a nice lazy bath full of bubbles with my book last night, something rather wonderful popped up in my Inbox! I had been selected by Alyson Weldrake of thethoughtpalette.co.uk/abc-award/as a recipient of her newly created award for Awesome Blog Content.
Wow! It was like receiving a belated Christmas/Thanksgiving present and New Year greetings all rolled into one. I shared the excitement with my husband, then tum-ti-tum-d my way up the stairs. My first ever blogging award! I dashed back down the stairs again (MUST get a bungalow one of these years!), dropped a kiss on his head, and filled a glass with white wine to sashay back up the stairs.
Woke up this morning and checked my Inbox again, and yes, it’s still there! My very own ABC Award.
Now don’t get me wrong- I am not the sole recipient of this honour. Reading down Alyson’s list I realised that I was in very fine company indeed. Part of the delight of this is that I now have an invitation to meet other bloggers that I would not necessarily have found on my own initiative. Believe me, I’ve dabbled in “social media” in an attempt to find like minded people- not easy! Mostly all I want to do is share my joy in writing about the things I love.
Enough rambling! I have a contractual obligation to fulfill. I humbly accept this award Alyson, bless your kind heart!

I am very happy to pass on this award to some of the people who have inspired me:
and will be notifying them tomorrow with a clear head. Being technologically challenged I’ve struggled a bit to get this up and running. Hope I don’t disappoint, Alyson. Again, many thanks!
P.S Don’t know if you can have a P.S on blogs but I seem to need one! As I was scampering to get out of the door last night I failed to nominate a couple of blogs I really love and am hereby rectifying this!
