Goodness me. I have got my first award. I am lost for words. I’d better get on with the re-design, so there’s some space for it somewhere.
The wonderful Almost American has passed this award on to me:
According to the authors of this award, 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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Thank you, Almost American! And now I need to pass it on to eight other bloggers. Well, you’ve probably all got one already, but… I pass this on to: More than just a mother, Tara at Sticky Fingers, Home Office Mum (see below for more about her), New Mum Same Old Me, Mothership of Motherhood: The Final Frontier, Iota at Not wrong, just different, Susanna at A Modern Mother, and Surprised and Excited Mum.
And, in my final bit of linkage, if you don’t already know about Home Office Mum’s incredibly exciting adventure:
you need to go visit More to Life Than Laundry and do whatever you can to support her, whether it’s donating, supporting her sponsors, or just spreading the word as far as you can.
And finally… while Home Office Mum embarks on her sea-faring adventure, we shall be embarking on an adventure of a rather different nature, that of becoming a family of four, rather than three. Yes, R is going to be a big sister some time in October and I would therefore like to apologise in advance for any boredom that may ensue from reading about morning sickness, scans, baby names, hospital plans and birth plans. I will try to keep a balance, but you all know what these hormones can do to a girl.
