Best Blogging Buddies Award from Sweet Irene

I have just received this award from Sweet Irene which I am very pleased to have. I started this blog as a bit of fun for my kids and wrote in the third person about the daft things they were getting up to. For many weeks I had no comments at all and Sweet Irene was the first person who commented, and kept commenting which kept me interested. I have also been reading her brilliant 'Sweet Wood Talking' since May, I think. The whole blogging experience has been great and absolutely fascinating, and I have 'met' many great people from all over the world and learnt all sorts of things and seen some brilliant art, all from a corner of my dining room. It has on occasions also been very moving. I thought, before I started, it was a bit like chat-rooms and a bit rubbishy but how wrong I have been proved! So thanks, Sweet Irene!

It has been great fun for me too. I thought it was a big mememememe thing and was so wrong. I did it for Debi and Audrey because they kept bugging me.

Glad they kept bugging you Bobbie, is all I can say!

Frances said...

I agree, glad to know you both.
And you have been there from the beginning with Irene, I remember reading her blog and you were the only visitor then, Bev.

Well Done Bev! I had very few comments on my blogs before joining 2 things. It was discouraging but I had to remind myself that I was blogging for me (the challenge of a photo a day) anyway so comments were a bonus. I knew I had readers but people seem to read and not comment. I still get that a lot. NZ's are the WORST! My friends read and email me comments. Go figure. Anyway they are all lovely to get however they come and congrats to you on your award.
Lisa :)

You're welcome, Bev.

I agree that you deserve this award and more. While you might have been a reluctant blogger at first, you have turned out to be a delightful and faithful one.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your blog, from when I first stuck my head in (via Frances' blog comments, I believe) and wondered, Who is this Eleanor's Mum and how did she get to be so stinkin' funny?

Now you are part of the celestial constellation that grouped together we all make. Indeed a heavenly body.

Congratulations, Bev!
