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.
