End of Term Awards


"Arte (Art) y Pico" (I think the "pico" refers to the spiky thing she is standing on...my Spanish dictionary also defines "pico" as peak, bill, spout, pickaxe/icepick, woodpecker, and a bit, mouth/gob, "fix". So take your pick....)


...after feeling a tad depressed of late...I feel like a sprightly, bouncing lamb once again. Therefore I would like to award the "Arte y Pico" and "just plain fun to read" awards to the following bloggers who have put a spring in my step again:
"Just plain fun to read" goes to:
1. expatmum (who's on holiday)
2. Rural Villager (who's not on holiday)
3. Potty Mummy (who's not on holiday)
4. Strife in the North (who is maybe on holiday or "resting")
5. Sandi McBride (who is not on holiday)
and the very elegant " Arte y Pico" award to:
1. Very Lost in France! (who's on holiday)
2. Family Affairs (on holiday at the moment...)
3. Rosiero (who's not on holiday)
4. @the mill (who's retired from blogging)
5. Mutterings and Meanderings (who's retired from blogging)
And can the last one out switch the lights off please? (I feel better now...I'm not keeping those gorgeous awards to myself. My conscience is clean...well..dirty grey anyway.......) P.S : Do the boys get any awards? Special mentions and the "Knockout Read" award go to: Arthur Clewley's Diaries, Yorkshire Pudding, Stay at Home Dad.
Thank you to one and all.....

Hi YP...I decided that the boys DEFINITELY have to a proper award so I have wrestled with my paintbox and come up with something more appropriate...hope you like it! Toodle pip. Hadriana.

"have to have"....oh dear, the grammar...not functioning again...especially when I'm addressing an English teacher...not good! Must go and get that coffee.

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Hi Sandi and Lindsay, Glad you like 'em. Hi Gill - we had excellent weather yesterday (oop North) but it's gone cloudy and misty again.....botheration!

rosiero said...

I am honoured, Many thanks for thinking of me, Hadriana.

Expatmum said...

Thank you so much!! See you later.

Arthur Clewley said...

I shall film a video thankyou to play at the awards ceremony hadriana - does your DVD machine play super-8?

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Hello to Rosiero, Expatmum and AC. Glad you are OK with all of this.

I am a bit rubbish at this award giving malarkey. I'd be the one fluffing her lines, staring at the autocue and falling over her dress on the red carpet! Yes...AC..I'm sure my assistants can handle Super-8...(I would only go and press the wrong button and...break the machine...and jam the film and...)

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Hi Expatmum, Hope you got back all right. It only took me about an hour to get back in the end!

Stay at home dad said...

Hi Hadriana and thank you for the mention. You're not so shabby yourself!

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Thank you, Stay at Home Dad, you are very kind. That said ...perhaps I invented shabby chic. Well, I like to pretend I did.

Sandi McBride said...

You know of all the awards, the Just Plain Fun to Read award is probably my favorite...Thank you so much...might I say, I think you're pretty fun to read, myself!
hugs
Sandi
