undeserved award

Despite my posts being somewhat erratic lately, it seems some people are keeping the faith. Which is good, 'cos I gotta say mine is a little shaky at times.
Angel, who has been a regular reader here for ages has seen fit to create her very own special award - and I am one of the lucky few first recipients!

Angel, you're a peach :-)
Thank you for not giving up on me and for the many hours of entertaining reading you have given to me in Blogland.


And in other news:
It's cold. Really cold. Probably as a result of it being Winter again. Sheesh, I was still holding out for the Summer that never really arrived and BAM! Here's Winter.
Not only that - it's only something silly like three weeks till Christmas. I found my weekly groceries peppered with things like mince pies and Christmas crackers this morning. As if that's not enough, I found myself pumping up the volume on the radio while I was packing said groceries in my kitchen afterwards, when one of those super-spicy energetic Christmas songs came on.
Hubby and Cinderella were completely unfazed by this little display of festive spirit, staying safely tucked away with their respective computer games / movie watching and leaving me to prance around like a reindeer on speed all by myself, with nothing but Cornflakes for company.

As images go, that's not a great one, I'll admit. So I'll leave you with this one instead - they've decorated the trees along the quay with purple and blue lights and it just looks so darn pretty as dawn is breaking I simply had to stop to take a picture.

Hey, that's a pretty snazzy award you've got there! Always to know that someone appreciates you even if you DO resemble a reindeer on speed. ;) Love the pic with the blue and purple lights, looks fabulous. I'm with you on the ongoing summer thing, too much cold is icky.

Annnd... I wish Blogger would stop telling me to 'Choose an Identity'; seriously, it's like they are taunting my unstable!

When you view the photo at large size, it conveys the effect quite - um - effectively. Especially since it looks like you were hovering in mid-air over the water when you took it.

Terri said...

LiVEwIre - hehehe, just think of it as a way to reinvent yourself on a daily basis :-D

Kyknoord - I didn't tell you about my special ability, did I..?

Angel - The picture actually doesn't do it justice, but I was in a bit of a hurry that morning.
MWA back :-)

Laurie - If you'd walked along that quay this weekend, you probably would've been almost blown in again. Yuck weather!
And thank you :-)

Jeff - Thanks, I feel very honoured with this one. Oh and if you'd like to see more pics do follow the link to my Flickr page on the left of my page.

Del - One way or another, I sincerely hope so!!
