"I live(Freudian slip)...love your blog" awards


An award kindly given to me by Tartetartan and Dulwich Divorcee. (I would award this back to them...but I think they have it several times over....)
After much thought and a big roll of drums...Ta da! I award this wonderful award to the following bloggers:
1.FatFrumpyandFifty She is based on the Cumbrian side of Hadrian's Wall and I can assure you that she is not FFF! We met up for a coffee at the very attractive Tullie House (which I must explore further) in Carlisle. We had a good, long chat and even discovered we knew the same person in the next village. (There is more than one person in that village. Oh! you know what I mean!) FFF has a treasure trove of experiences to (hopefully) blog about so I look forward to hearing some of those tales in person and in blog.
2.LakelandJo A recent find and am enjoying hearing her experiences around and about this area and the Lake District.
3.Rural Villager I adore her blog and try to follow it as much as I can!
4.EastAnglianTroy Another recent find and I wish EAT well in his blogging adventures!
5. expatmum Another blogger from the North whom I have met...I enjoy her stories from the Other Side of the Pond and in person...
6.Reluctant Memsahib An "African" treasure. An absolute treasure. Do have a look!
7. BlogfromtheNorth Another chap who has lots to tell...well worth the visit. Just check out, for instance, what he has to say about the late great Humph (Humphrey) Lyttelton (didn't realise until the other night he was SO talented...jazz trumpeter, very funny man and artist). And...
8. The Lehners from France who will shortly not be in France but back in YUK.
9. The Other Side of Paris based in France (as opposed to Texas)....check out his "chateau"....(!)
who are extremely recent finds (and because I hate following rules..... :-))
"Rules" of this award are to: link to the blogs awarded and nominate seven! You know who you are! (Also let them know as well. It's only polite to do so after all your hard work.)
There are lots of other blogs which I would nominate as well but I'll save those for another time...(large hadrons collision - allowing...)

Hadriana,

Many thanks for this lovely award!

Lindsay said...

Thanks Hadriana for this award - it comes at a good time - as you know Rescue Dog is no longer with us.

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Gosh dumdad you are quick off the mark. I'd been meaning to get over to yours to tell you! Thanks for that. I can only type so fast...

Hello Lindsay, yes, Rescue Dog was (and still is) so much part of the family. Terribly sorry to hear about your loss. We, the Hadriana family, sympathise hugely. xx xx

Lehners in France said...

Fat, frumpy and fifty... said...

OM-Gosh!! Hadriana! Thank you...!

I'm gob smacked, but not speechless, as you now know that would be difficult!

This is my first award, I wondered what one had to do, comply, invent, impress etc...to get one, as l do see them scattered about the blog sphere...in differing shapes and forms...Thank you!!

have good weekend too!



So l shall graciuosly and effervesantly accept, and will read up on the rules and link to you and the relevant blog when l sort this out in my head...

East Anglian Troy said...

Gosh, thanks for this award...I don't know what to say..I'm speechless. First I'd like to thank my parents for their support and being there when I was born. To my dear wife Mrs Troy for doing the ironing whilst I blog. To my teachers, Thomas Eddison, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Mr Google and...sorry...I'm overcome with emotion, sob..can't go on...bye!

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Hello Lehners Good packing and travelling!
Hi BFTN When the toga comes back from the cleaners I guess...
Hello again FFF I suspected you might not be speechless! :-) but glad that it might allow you to decorate a bit...
E.A.T. I like your acceptance speech! Impressed by your grand array of teachers...sounds like a very classy school...

Expatmum said...

Thank you pet. I am sitting here semi-recovered from the cold I half-caught from the little one. Middle one now has it worse than anyone and the Ball & Chain is leaving on Wednesday for 10 days!!! I just hope I don't get any worse or I'll have to call in the army reserves or someone. The award has cheered me up tho'.

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Happy that you are feeling semi-better expatmum! The other 50% may well be revived before B&C leaves...I do hope so hinny. (Otherwise I know of a Roman legionary living hereabouts who may be of some help...)

Hadriana's Treasures said...

I should have said when my *best* toga comes back from the cleaners. A girl does have standards you know!!

Sandi McBride said...

So glad to be back in Blogland and visiting with my pals...good to see you...I'll be back soon
hugs
Sandi

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Thanks Sandi. Thank you passing by. I'll be over to yours soon. I've got an early Autumn (Fall) cold, sniffle, so am feeling sorry for myself. (It's one where it feels as if a lively grasshopper has taken up residence in my nose and my eyes seem to have sprung a permanent leak! Needless to say the "hot toddies" [Hot Jameson Whiskey and lemonade brews :-)] are out in full force...)

Sandi McBride said...

Lovely award, well deserved, and too true!
hugs
Sandi

The Dotterel said...

Well done, well done, one and all!

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Dear Sandi and The Dotterel...Thank you very much for your comments. Very much appreciated. I'll be over to yours soon (respectively). Had a hectic week and a half - planning and doing a hair raising child's party!! I'm still alive to tell a tale or two...
