I've said it before and I'll say it again ...
I want to say "thank you" to all of you who have recently been leaving me so many heart-warming, gorgeously lovely, kind hearted comments. I am being a dreadful slow coach at replying to you all, I have been trying hard but once I start to read one blog I'm immediately off on a trail and before I know it another half an hour has passed ... With every new visit. new comment, new comment from an "old" friend I am reminded of just why I started to blog.
A few weeks ago I resolved to spend less time at the computer and have been partly successful (just partly!). I had also toyed with the idea of maybe backing away from blogging, but to tell you the truth after a couple of nights in bed worrying about this I came to the conclusion that I couldn't do it. I would miss it too much. It is a joy to turn on the computer and read your blogs and find new comments from you, to click on a link and discover a new little world. a photo album of a daily life, a commentary on life's ups and downs
- it is not just about me sharing with you, it is about you sharing with us too. The thought of leaving that all behind just left me cold and made me realised how big a part blogging has come to play in my life.
It is nearly two years now since I started blogging and I still haven't mastered the art of a quick read!!! You must all stop taking such wonderful photos and writing such lovely words - now!!! My family have got used to me slinking out of the living room and muttering "back in five minutes, just going to check my blog ....' What still surprises me is your generosity and kindness.
I have been lucky enough to receive some awards recently, and as I sat here reading the words attached to each award I found myself blushing and completely at a loss for words ... So I shall just say "thank you".
Thank you to April for this award and to Amanda, Fifties girl and Julia
for this one. Please go and have a read of all these lovely ladies' blogs, you won't be disappointed.
There are wonderful words attached to each of the awards and rules too, but I am going to pass on these awards to everybody who reads my blog and leaves a comment - in the absence of a huge box of chocolates or tin of biscuits which I would love to share with you and a cup of tea, please find room on your very pretty shelves for these two awards.
I have also been tagged by Mel tag to show you the fourth photo in my fourth file on the computer. Here is Little Sister and her rag doll/hot water bottle/superglued cat - the pair are inseparable at the moment.
Wishing you a great weekend, keep warm, enjoy the snow if you've still got some and "thank you".
PS Thanks too, to Emma for the lovely pink primrose!
