Lovely, isn't it? And now for the real fun. As with the most glitzy of award ceremonies, I get to present some awards, too. The rules are simple: 1.Put the logo on your blog; 2.Add a link to the person who awarded it to you; 3.Nominate at least seven other blogs; 4.Add links to them on your blog; 5.Leave a message for your nominee on their blogs. So here, in no particular order, are just a few people I'd like to thank for inspiring me on my blogging journey so far: First, norfolk single dad - this guy races snails, for goodness sake! Next, the birdbathchronicles - and, yes, this site does contain birdbaths; Mother of Shrek - this blogger deserves as many medals as she can get; Next, both Berthddu Suit and Liz - because sometimes I'd like to move to rural Wales and to keep chickens; Bubble and Squeak - and if not Wales, then the French Alps; Single Parent Dad - we stay-at-home dads must stick together; Kitty - let's hear it for the mums, too; and finally... Can Bass 1 - just makes me laugh. An eclectic list, I know. But that's what's so addictive about blogging - the vast array of talent in almost every sphere of human activity and interest. Enjoy!
