I'd like to thank my primary school English teacher

Over the last couple of months I have been terrible at acknowledging the awards that I have been given. It's not because I don't appreciate them, because I really, really do, but just that I never have had time to finish off the posts. I even started more posts going into long stories about finding the perfect awards dress, shoes and jewellery but never quite finished those either. When I receive an award I either save the post in Bloglines, or start a post here, so doing this tonight has the effect of having a bit of a clean out of drafts and saved posts, which is a bit overdue!

So here is a list of the awards that I think I have received over the last couple of months. Sorry if I have forgotten anyone.

Thank you so much to the following people for giving me blog awards:

From Catherine Delors:

From Ana and Leya from Wandeca Reads

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."

From Arleigh at

Started by the blogging team at Jane Austen Today the “aim of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award is to acknowledge writing excellence in the spirit of Jane Austen’s genius in amusing and delighting readers with her irony, humor, wit, and talent for keen observation. Recipients will uphold the highest standards in the art of the sparkling banter, witty repartee, and gentle reprove.”

From Dar at Peeking Through the Pages and Kathrin from Secret Dreamworld of a Bookaholic, Chris from Book-a-rama

The Prémio Dardos is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

From Ana at Aneca's World, Holly from What Were You Expecting and Julia from Julia's Book Corner - The Bookworm Award

From Teddy Rose at So Many Precious Books, So Little Time

From Marny the Bookworm - Lets Be Friends award

From Cinderella at World of Royalty blog:

From Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise

I hope I haven't missed anyone, and if I have I am very sorry! I promise to try and do better next time...if there is a next time!

Oh, someone cue the damn music please!


  1. Congrats on all the awards! I like the dress. :)

  2. Congrats on the awards! I'm really bad at acknowledging awards too. I've got to get a post done up myself. I really appreciate the awards I just always forget to post about them.

  3. Congratulations, you have some very attractive awards there. Well done.

  4. Dar, I am so glad that I am not alone in appreciating but still forgetting to post!

    Kailana, the dress is nice isn't it! wouldn't like great on me, but it looks nice on the stand!
