I still get a buzz from each and every one I receive…..and I know I’m rule breaking…..

But….there always seems to be a but doesn’t there lol….. As I’ve had so many awards recently (and I’m not complaining!) as you can see, I’ve had to do them all in one post. I hate to have you waiting weeks for me to acknowledge the award, that’s just not fair now is it 😦

The rules are all slightly similar for these things, and as I’ve recently given you all so much boring information about myself, I’ll pass on listing things about me, i’d probably end up duplicating something anyway lol.

Sooooo, in honour of all the awards I’ve received and to celebrate my 200th follower (I am feeling blessed) and the 11,000+ views on my 214 posts, i have created my own little awards thingy lol. It’s nothing special, just a photo of a piece of artwork i created for my daughter. And to show my appreciation to all my followers, it is my gift to all of you! Because you are all so wonderful, and I really haven’t got a clue how else to show my thanks, and the sheer joy I feel at having you all as part of my Blogging life πŸ™‚ You guys keep me going, do you know that πŸ™‚

Thank you to everyone who has made my first 6 months of blogging the great experience it has been. I feel so at home here and have made some fantastic Bloggy friends πŸ™‚ I have thoroughly loved every minute of it, and you guys, the ones who comment, and read my ramblings, are what makes it all worth while πŸ™‚

So, please feel free to consider that, if you’re reading this and you’re a follower (or I follow you) you have been nominated for any of the awards above or accept my Very Special Blogger Award with much love from me πŸ™‚ Take your pick!

And now, I think it’s time (and long overdue actually) for me to do a BlogRoll on my side bar. To acknowledge the fantastic bloggers who have supported me along my journey πŸ™‚ please take a moment to visit their blogs, you won’t be disappointed πŸ™‚

So, as we’re in party mood, and you’re all invited, tell me, What tipple (alcoholic beverage) will you be arriving at my front door with?

Apologies to Janet over at Postcard Fiction for the delay in dealing with this award. But, what with the A-Z Challenge I’m very conscious of only making one post a day πŸ™‚
