  1. Thank you for nominating me for my FIRST award ever! It is very much appreciated and I will accept. I will just take a little time to do so, because I am still very tired from the tagging game 🙂
    So, thank you again and keep up the good work!


  2. Thank you Tinkey Town, your nomination is totally unexpected and delightful! I’d be delighted to play, though it may take me a little while to get to the acceptance speech stage – hope you understand? In the meantime, I’ve visited the sites of your blogging friends – thank you for so many interesting introductions. But mostly, congratulations to you. I’ve been enjoying your blog for a while, and have just gone back to the beginning – it’s been developing well, and I can see why your other admirers have nominated you!


    • You are most welcome and one of the lovely things about the blogging community is there are so many diverse interesting blogs out there along with some really nice people too! And thank you for your kind words too!


      • It’s been a revelation to me, too, though I have to say, a little overwhelming at times. Thes last two days, for instance, I’ve received seven other nominations … how to respond adequately to that?

        Keep up the good work Tinkey.
