Woo-hoo! I got sent my 1st award...

I'M SO HAPPY, WOO-HOOOOO!!! Thank you, thank you....OK...Sorry, I'll calm down now, but I am surprisingly chuffed by this!! So love & huge thanks to the lovely Maternal Tales from the South for sending me my first ever award. I will place it proudly on my blog, where I can sit & stare lovingly at it...it really is quite a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Now I think I have to send it on to blogs I love too...YAY...this is fun...

As a source of many a giggle at my computer, for her insightful and amusingly written observations of Teenage Daughters, I'd like to pass it on to amomonspin

Also to selinakingstonisforty for her incredibly honest, from the heart sharing.

Next I'm sending it to menopausaloldbag for her beautiful writing, which always captures the imagination and makes me wish I could write this well!

To maialarasaid for her ability to remind me that my Teenagers were once this sweet & adorable.

And finally to 3bedroombungalow for her amusing, down to earth stories of life in the UK with her family...

To all the above, many thanks for making me laugh & cry, often at the same time, and please pass it on to your faves too....


  1. Thank you so much for my award. I know the sweet little girls will grow up and become horrible teens, but at least now I have all recorded. :))

  2. Yup, you can re-read your blogs, while you are pulling your hair out at your teens! x

  3. Oh thank you so much for this award, I was really touched with your comments too. I popped over to have a quick read and found myself staying to read several posts. You write so very well and with passion and humour. I had tears in my eyes whilst reading your post about the homeless guy and how your son was upset by it. I hope you are considering writing a novel because you have the ability to move a reader as well as entertain. I have just become a follower of your blog and look forward to reading more! Thanks for making my day.

  4. Oh you lovely lady! We are so going to become bezzies (teenage word I'm not allowed to use but do so to cause maximum annoyance in a bid to get my own back...) because I love your blog too.
    Thank you so much for thinking of me and for making me smile just when I was feeling a bit sorry for myself x

  5. Congratulations on your first award! Thanks for popping in to mine and for becoming a stalker, sorry, follower! Will pop back soon, WM x

  6. MOB: You truly deserve this award, I LOVE popping over to you and getting caught up in your wonderfully descriptive writing. Thanks for your lovely compliments on my post, I did get quite emotional just writing it, imagine the mess I was in at the time, not pretty!

    Selina: bezzies, definitely!! Haha...I love doing that to my Teenagers too...I use all the 'in' words I hear, but only when they are around!! It causes squeals of horror, hehe. I'm glad it made you smile, none of us smile enough xx

    Working Mum: Change that back to 'stalker'...hehe! I'm enjoying your blog very much. I particularly liked the 'confession' about not remembering childrens names.
