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!
