A Few Awards

I dearly thank Absolute Vanilla for the “Colours of Friendship", "Bloggers of the World", and "Mwah!" badges. She is a wonderful friend, writer, and blogger, and I’m happy and honoured that she thought of me for these awards.

It is my pleasure to pass these awards on to others.


This I would like to give to some of those who have given me their kindness, their warmth, their friendship, their encouragement, their trust over these few months of my (timidly) testing of the blogosphere:

Canterbury Soul
David (aka Good Thomas)


All of you who read and comment on my thoughts, and whose blogs I have linked to and I always read with much pleasure are indeed Bloggers of the World. Please take the badge and continue doing what you’re doing – you’re good at it!


Oh, I love the sound of this!

The reason for this award is:

(I will quote from Absolute Vanilla)

the desire to hand some of that love and kindness back around to those who have been so very, very, very good to me in this bloggy world. My hope is that those who receive this award will pass it on to those who have been very, very, very good to them as well. It's a big kiss, of the chaste platonic kind, from me to you with the underlying 'thanks' message implied. I really do appreciate your support and your friendship and yes, your comments. ... Mwah!

And so a big Mwah! from me to: (I swear it’s not sloppy!!!)

The Church Lady
The Struggling Writer

In my mind, the Colours of Friendship and the Mwah! awards stand for pretty much the same things so I’m glad I could double the number of recipients.

Please, do not keep them for yourselves…

Happy Blogging!

  10. Darling Bernita, but you do. And I thank you.

    David, likewise. You have been present for me since the early wobblying steps of this blog and you've always had a kind thought to share. This means very much to me.

    You're welcome Paul. It is my pleasure to visit your blog and I am happy that you read mine.

    Oh, you are nice, Minx, and you are welcome!

    Szelsofa, there is indeed a connection and I'm very glad for it! You're most welcome.

    And so are you, my dear Church Lady! There is no generosity here, just the truth, the way I feel it... I'm glad you like the logo! ;-)

    Dear Ropi, I'm always looking forward to your presence on my blog and also to reading yours. Thank you! :-)

    You're welcome, Jason, and I thank you. I feel the same. It is wondrous how like spirits can come together in this world of electrons...

    My dear Aine, your more than kind words humble me. And I look forward to your always thoughtful presence.

    Oh, Ello, you're very welcome. I'm very glad to be your blog-friend. :-)
