Thanks to Andrew, my cat Bendy, my next door neighbour, the man up the road…I’ve won an award

I’ve not been blogging so much these days, so to win an award is very exciting. It’s always exciting whenever it happens. But right now with my home being demolished around me it couldn’t have come at a better time. So I’ve dug out my posh frock and wedges and I am all ready to accept my award. This one is particularly unique as I can keep adding to it. What fun! I love blogging and miss it very much so I promise to do more in the future. Sunday I have decided will be my Blogging day. But for now let’s go back to the Award.
‘BLOG OF 2012’ how fab is that? Thank you to The thought Palette for awarding me. Check out their blog for some fantastic creative ideas. Blog of 2012 also have a Facebook page so do join in the fun. ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook page.
The ‘rules’ for the award are simple:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
5) Add the Facebook link.
My chosen blogs are

Piglet in Portugal. A blog that I always enjoy. I rarely comment but I love this blog very much.
Mature student hanging in there. Another real fave. Keep up the good work Jacqueline.
Now for the best bit. There are stars to collect. Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!
You begin with the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!
There are a total of 6 stars to collect.
Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
Great fun, I am sure you agree.

Again many thanks. I’m going to make room now on my bookshelf. See you all soon.
