Awash in Awards, again!

Yes, one of my very favourite bloggers has passed an award my way. He apparently thinks I'm related to Clint Eastwood. Or he's related to Clint Eastwood.

Either way, I apparently "Make His Day". This is from Dumdad, over at The Other Side of Paris.

Lovely award, isn't it? The colours and everything.

The instructions that come with this award say this:

Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about being part of the blogging community! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on!

But since I travel in a small circle, half the people I would give this to have already had the award bestowed on them by Dumdad already. I'd shake my tiny fist at him, but he's just given me an award, so that wouldn't be polite.

Just about everybody who reads here has probably already been over to see his blog, but if you haven't (and I'll link it again, just to be sure) go there now. Sometimes he does a "Pause for Poetry", and he has fabulous stories about working for a British newspaper. And drinking. There's usually a story about drinking, too.

I choose to bestow this award on (in no particular order): Bellevelma at Running with Books, Mike at The Grand View, jrh at Turkey on Whole Wheat, and to PixelPi at Motes, who hasn't been around much the last month or so, but whose pictures still make my day.

And for those that are wondering, my finger is doing much better. The bandage is off, the cut is sealed over, and I have a lovely gap where the top half of my finger nail used to be. I am amazed at how quickly and cleanly this healed, but it may have something to do with using a very sharp knife, and taking prenatal vitamins. Or maybe it was the initial application of Dora Band-aids.

Wow, thanks Jen. I can see you getting this award but me? Nevertheless, thank you for your support and friendship. Congrats to you and thanks from me!

That's really a cool award.

I'm glad your finger is better. It's definitely the Dora band aids that did the trick.

Diana said...

Oh, yeah. The Dora bandaids. They work like a charm for us, as do the Scooby-Doo ones but not the Blues Clues. I think that's because it's Joe and not Steve on the Blues Clues and Joe irritates the wound.

But that's just my impression.

Glad the finger is healing nicely. Congrats on the award - you may be suffering from pregnancy brain, but you still remembered to put the award instructions on your post, didn't you? Guess who forgot?...I'll get my coat.

Congratulations on your award. You make my day too, but I suspect you already knew that.

I'm glad your finger is healing.

my two cents said...

You make my day, too! Glad your finger is beginning to heal.

Hey, wow, Thanks!

I'm glad your finger is healing.

PixelPi said...

Congrats on the finger first aid working. Fingers are pretty important. And thanks a million for my award, especially considering I've been in the Bahamas on the beach for the last month (a blatant lie, but nice fantasy).

If I'm going to accidentally cut myself in the kitchen, I always aim for the cellulite. But it never works and I usually get a finger.

Congrats on the award Jen, ad I'm with Kaycie, it was definitely the Dora plaster that sorted your finger.
