As is my wont - I like to use Sundays to thank the wonderfully kind people who have thought of me when it comes to handing out awards.
Today I am thanking Canadian Flake and Daryl e for giving me my two new awards. I am always incredibly humbled by an award and get all awkward feeling - but I am truly grateful and proud to post them on my sidebar.
Speaking of which - The Man has changed my sidebar and there is now a lovely little slideshow that contains the awards I have received. So thanks to The Man as well.
And finally - but with much pomp and ceremony as well - I want to thank Stinking Billy for nominating this blog for The Best Of Blogs Award. That contest comes up later in April and I will keep you posted about it when I find out more.
Thank you all for your patience and perseverance in reading my story. It has been (and will be) longwinded...but what can I say?
