First come first served

I've received this lovely award from A Confused Take That Fan and Nunhead Mum of One and Fat, Frumpy and Fifty!:




As usual there are bloggy rules to follow

1. Link to the giver.
2. Nominate up to seven other fab blogs and link to them.
3. Leave messages announcing their rise to greatness.

Well, I've been so busy since returning to school that I'm going to be a bit of a rebel here and not follow rules 2 and 3.

I've taken advantage of Blogger's new 'Following' feature and declared myself as a follower to a few of you (OK, 80 of you, I may have to pop in less frequently than I did in the summer in future). Anyway, I've redesigned my sidebar so that you are all featured there and the first seven of you to comment that you've grabbed the award can have it.

I love all your blogs for so many different reasons.

Thanks for blogging!

seems rather ungratious to be at the front of the queue (if I am) but congratulations on yet more bling! And where do you find the time to read 80 blogs?

Working mum said...

The Dotterel - I had 8 weeks summer holiday and no telly (due to decorating). I could have used my time more productively I guess!

Well done on your award. It is a very lovely one too! I won't take it as I have just been given it by Hadriana's Treasure, so someone else please take it. Debs x

I, madam, consider it rather infra dig to comment on a post merely to collect a prize (hence my delay in submitting this comment). Nevertheless, I feel that I owe you an apology, and can delay no longer. My dear lady, when I saw the rather sinister 'follower' thing appear on my blog, I rather assumed the worst. I think I may have been a little 'spooked' by my paramour's tales of unseemly internet activities involving 'hanky-panky'. I now realise, of course, that your intentions are entirely honourable, and that you are a well-respected (and award-winning) member of the blogging community. And I do so enjoy being a member myself!

WMOTV - hope things are going OK back at work after your summer break. Thanks for being a follower. Look forward to your next post!

Fat, frumpy and fifty... said...

just noticed you have two of these already....well l'm not alone in my praise then...YEAH!!

Working Mum, thanks so much, you are too too kind, but you were on my list to send it to as well. Can I send it back to you again? Mwah, mwah VLiF

That story on picking up the parcel was just the limit. Pedantic eejits runing our services. It's the same having to take a day off for deliveries. I always feel as though I am under house arrest as you can't even go into the garden for them to turn up, knock once, leave a card saying they called, and feck off as quick as you like! Drives me nuts! Great blog, I love your writing style.

MamaGeek said...

I heartcha too. Congrats on the bling.

That's kind WM. I am ashamed to say that I have let my award GIVING go! I WILL catch up sooner or later IF I remember all who have awarded me. Forgive me! I have a lot on my mind right now. Will get there.
