And now to pass the Award on – only if folk wish to accept it, of course. I know a lot of people are not happy about the requirements of Awards so I am happy to change the rules and say you are welcome to the award if you want it but the passing on ‘rule’ is optional.

Nan of Letters from a Hill Farm for all the wonderful books to which she has lead me.

Lisa at Bluestalking whose blog never fails to interest me.

Marian at Granny on the Web who gives me the best belly laughs.

Julie, the Compulsive Worrier, on the basis that she is always busy and busy people always seem to manage to fit things in (like accepting silly awards!)

The Decadent Housewife – if only because she hums opera in the kitchen while writing her Daily Decadent!

And last, but by no means least, Saz at Fat, Frumpy and Fifty who never seems lost for words (in the nicest possible way!) and whose blog name should also include Friendly.

  2. Oh my goodness, you have made my day!! I accept, oh how I do! I would like to thank the Academy, for its unfailing good taste. My friends and family, online and off, for their unflagging support. And to those who've criticized me and my blog for its lack of seriousness - a big HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! to you all! 'Tis an honor I accept willingly and with great humility. Well, willingly, at least. Shall complete questions at first opportunity! xo

  3. CJ - Congrats on your award!

    I just wanted to let you know that it takes me a long time to get around to things, something to do with my age, perhaps--and I'll be posting about the award you gave me, as soon as I can! :)

  4. Well-deserved and well-handled award! say I (who as you know just recently had to tackle the same list of questions myself)

  5. Oh this is a hoot! Accepted and thank you so very much. (Deep bow and a little humming.)
