The Mother of All Awards Ceremony

I am ashamed to say I have had these awards for over a week and have not passed them on yet. In my defence...well.....actually, I haven't got a defence....so I'll just get on with it.


This first one came from Maggie May, who believes me to be a very busy person. I suppose I am quite busy, but I did notice during the weekend, when the internet was playing up, how much busier I used to be before I started this blogging lark! It's amazing how much housework you can get done when there's no computer to distract you......


Anyway, I would like to pass this on to David, who has got to be the busiest blogger anybody has ever met. Also, it's quite nice to be able to give him an award that he can actually accept, rather than the 'Wonderful Woman of the Web' award that I bestowed on him last time.



This one from Casdok, assumes I have a 'quick wit' - possibly gained from years of dealing with the Father of This Lot. I am passing this one to Milla, Swearing Mother, Pig in the Kitchen and Kitty, all exceptionally witty and probably wise, wonderful and lots of other complimentary adjectives beginning with W.





And finally....do you remember how desperately I wanted to make my own award? Well, I am nothing if not a trier. I downloaded a free trial of a graphics programme and after hours, weeks even of poring over the help screen, a lot of clicking and much trial and error, I have come up with this:




Actually, that was a complete and utter lie.

The Fixer knocked it up in about three minutes. Anyway, that's not the point. The thought was there on my part. I just lacked the wisdom, knowledge and technical expertise of my twelve year old child needed to finish the project. I'd quite like to see how far it gets though. The only rule of passing it on is it has to go to a mother, so I would like to award it to Casdok, who is a mum in a million, Grit, who manages to homeschool triplets and Laura, who's got more kids than I have!


But wait......there's more!! The Fixer has decided that she is making more awards. Enough, in fact, so that everyone who has ever commented gets one! She is studying the blogs of all commenters and she's determined to make something to suit everyone!


So, if you didn't get an award today, DON'T PANIC!! (That means you, Adrienne)! Because, before the week is out, there will be something for everyone.

My sincere hope is that The Fixer is only using royalty-free images and that we're not going to get hit with a £100,000 copyright bill.

In the unfortunate event that this does happen, I will do what any caring mother would do in the circumstances.

Deny all knowledge and lay the blame firmly at her door.

Wooohooo ... thank you for my awardage - a blogger can never have enough bloggy bling.

Now about this fixer of yours ... how did you do that? Could you please post a tutorial, so I can work the magic on either one of my two - it would be so useful.

Thanks again! x

Casdok said...

Oh what a wondeful award! Thank you! Great team effort there!!

Pig in the Kitchen said...

oooo my, thank-you very much! You (and your daughter) are very clever to have knocked these up!

you are totally out of control! i am looking forward to a go-round with some new sites.

& congrats to you...you are indeed busy & have honed a fine quick wit along the way! brava motl!!

Swearing Mother said...

Thankyou so much MOTL, that's really lovely of you.

CrazyCath said...

Such wonderful wise words again! I ALWAYS blame the children. Why else have children? That is why I have 8 years between my two (I tell the older one) - built in baby sitter and errand runner! I even helped him get through his driving test so he can taxi me and others....

Great post again. And you didn't have to give credit to the 12 year old did you? You did? She threatened never to help out again? Darn it. Those kids get smarter with each generation...

The Future Was Yesterday said...

Just the art of being a Mother (and it is an art), is an award within itself.

Sweet Irene said...

Hee, hee, it never even dawned on me to make awards myself, but now you've really got me thinking. I don't have such a talented daughter handy, however...

Maggie May said...

What a clever little fixer! Will be fun to see what she comes up with!

Milla said...

COORRRRR!!!! Am pitifully excited here. And how do you know me so very very well?? Wise? Tick. Most Certainly. Witty? But of course, another tick. Wonderful? Oh be still my bright red pen. Ahhh, happy sighs - er, Put Down The Fantasy, Milla, Step Away From This False Persona. What was that thing about lying you wrote yesterday MOTL?? Blush. Still, am truly thrilled and grinning even if I AM a lying toad in other ways.

Jennie said...

Congratulations on all the awards. You'll need more wall space soon ;)

Amrita said...

Simply great. Fixer is wonderful

ChrisB said...

Your 'fixer' did a great job with your award. I had to get a bit of help from considerably older daughter when I was making my award.
When I need computer advice I often enlist the help of my 14 yr old grandson!

Expatmum said...

Mother - I have left you some tips for the R Dahl costumes on my blog post. (Still not feeling well enough to type it all out again here!)

bella mocha said...

Wow! The award you made is fantastic, and just 'perfect for you'- I'm so impressed!

You and The Fixer make a great team together :)

Happy Week!

Laura said...
