An Award for Everyone on my Blog Roll

This week has been a busy one. First of all I have joined the Twitter masses. Check out my updates on the top right hand corner. I don't always get the time to blog in between work, being a fab girlfriend/daughter/sister/friend, and just generally being a right lazy moo. I am giving that up for lent I promise (not the being a good girlfriend etc etc bit just being lazy). I had previously given up smoking but that was 5 years ago so don't think I can count that anymore. Anways getting slightly off track there - the updates will be there in between blogs so you can see I am still here. Not going anywhere I promise. Thanks to all those who stick with me.

On Monday the lovely Carol over at Not Only in Thailand awarded me this lovely 'Best Blog Thinker' award. To quote the person who created it "This award acknowledges the values that every Blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values with each message they write. Awards like this have been created with the intention of promoting community among Bloggers. It’s a way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.”

I must now pass this onto 5 others but in the words of Carol 'I think you're all fab!!! so I am going to pass this onto everyone on my entire blog roll. I have learnt so much from every single one of you. Well done!!

I have also been keeping Leigh company over at 100 words a day. I am keeping to my targets, well not including yesterday where I spent the evening with boyf and was too tired.

Finally this week I was granted trial contact lenses..yay. I am mildly short sighted so have had to wear glasses for driving, watching telly (so pretty much all the time then) and they are seriously irritating me. I don't know whether I am allergic to them or not but they constantly leave a gi-huge red mark at the bridge of my nose. I went into specsavers for my 2 yearly appointment and they told me my eyes had gotten slightly worse (I already knew this as I had recently mistook a parking meter for what I thought was my sister!). I wore my first trial pair yesterday for 4 hours and while they felt a little irritating at times they were definately an improvement to the glasses. I now go back on Monday for my final test and to buy a months worth. I may even get coloured ones. So exciting.


  1. Congratulations on the rising word count...your doing really well so don't beat yourself up if you miss a is allowed :-)

    LOL at mistaking a parking meter for your sister!!

    C x

  2. well done you for carrying on with 100 words a day. I'm afraid a tired pregnancy and newborn has put paid to that for me. But I am gearing up to go again!

  3. C - thank you. Im getting there. I just need to make sure I don't leave it so long again.
    I know, its so shameful but funny

    Helen - thank you. I had a big enough break from writing so your 100 words blog is a great way of making sure I don't slack again.

  4. is your sister really the same shape as a parking meter? Thanks for the award hun

  5. I've never looked back (if you'll pardon the pun!) since getting contact lenses, I wish I'd done it years ago.

    Thanks for the lovely award :o))

  6. Emerging writer - lol not in the slightest but in my defence is was quite dark out at the time. No problem, Congratulations!

    Karen - You're very welcome. I liked this one a lot and felt everyone deserved it. I'm learning so much from everyones blogs. Nice pun, I'm still getting used to them. They are a much less scary alternative to lazer eye surgery too!
