…well not fish, but awards from very kind fellow bloggers! (I hope you recognised the quote from ‘A Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ otherwise that was a very odd title for this post!) I am off to Los Angeles tomorrow evening so, I will only be posting sporadically for a couple of weeks. I am hoping that LaLaLand with provide some rich pickings for future posts. We shall see.
My friends, Claire and Colin, have been arranging all manner of socializing for my visit so I am going to be having a ball and hopefully playing lots of tennis in warm sunshine. This is a photo of Claire and I taken at a party (hence twinkly clothes!), we do know how to party and have been doing it together for many years!
This is the beach at Santa Monica. I’m going to hate it :-)
Now for the awards.
Kim at Laketrees has very kindly given me this
In her words “for her wonderful work…and her exuberant energy”. I could do with some exuberant energy at the moment, I am exhausted!
I am passing it on to
The Struggling Writer who has been very supportive of my work and needs some of my ‘exuberant energy’ to cope with his very cute daughter! He still manages to produce a funny, highly readable and instructive blog!
Eurekos I am awarding this to him because I hear on the news today that Belgium is having a bit of an identity crisis at the moment. I think that this Belgian blogger who always has something funny or informative to say is probably the most together thing in the country!
I also got a ‘You make me smile’ award from Cotojo on his ‘Life’ blog. Amongst other interesting things, he is doing sterling work keeping us up to date on developments in the Madeleine McCann situation.
So I am now passing this on to
Drowseymonkey whose philosophy to encourage us to “Do something good today ~ Or don’t do something bad ~ As long as you do it with humour” sounds OK by me!
And I’m going to give this to ‘Go! Smell the Flowers’.
I’m not sure about the ethics or otherwise, of making an award to a blog I have very recently started to write for, but I think this award should go to Jim and Em who started ‘Go! Smell the Flowers’ and also to their readers whose comments make me laugh!
So, job done! I’m off to pack and finish getting ready for my holiday.
Are we there yet?
