You will have noticed a dearth of good photos in my blogs lately, this is because my camera metaphorically spat the proverbial dummy. I have a new lens on the way but until then the camera is sitting in the corner of my summer study feeling all wan and miserable. It has had no walks and no loving (it was bad!). It weeps not very quietly into its bag when it sees the despised Purse Camera being taken out to play.
So in the absence of pretty photos I am going to attend to my awards. Over the last week, well last couple of weeks actually but whose counting. Oh you are? Oh .. well.. Anyway over this undetermined period of time I have been awarded three awards, I think. Well sometimes I forget to write stuff down and yes I know, you are right, I am one of those blondes that give the real blondes a bad name. But I know for sure I have been awarded three from a very enterprising trio of bloggers.
So I am going to have to rely on my somewhat faulty memory, oh what am I talking about, my ridiculously embarrassing memory to recall who they are. One day I forgot a whole person can you imagine such a terrible thing.. just completely forgot about him. SO Thank you my most darling Nia who loves cats as much as they love to pose for her and thank you the thunderous son who surprises me every day with his eclectic witty comments, I just love getting comments – any kind of comment and this fellow has a knack of entertaining the house with his comments! Plus he has an endlessly surprising blog. And Thank you so much Mr All Write who is new to my list, not new to his you understand but it took me a while to find him and he is a great read, really lovely way with words. He also likes his tighty-whiteys to uber white. A sentiment I wholeheartedly approve of.
I have a feeling that there was someone else but I forgot to write you down. So thank you TOO. And thank God and the Academy and my mum (oh no – wrong speech). Don’t you just love really Bad Jokes! Thank you my fellow bloggers for being the madcap blogging bunch that you are. Love, love, love your comments. And love the writing back . In fact as one of those interesting things you may not want to know about me I get up at 5.30 in the morning specifically to answer my messages. I love commenting on comments that much!
So speaking of tasks! It is more than likely that I am supposed to write seven things about myself, or nominate seven others or nominate five other people and write 16 things about myself or maybe I am supposed to make links to 4 of my favourite blogs and write nothing about myself, or was it six links and my birthdate. or a picture of me as a baby… my mind is a blank. But I want to play! i just cannot remember the rules! I was never very good with rules anyway!
SO I am going to link a few of piles of my favourite pages and then I will tell you a few deadly sins or maybe even a few things you did not know about me and then if you are really lucky and promise to be good I will STOP!
YOUR TASK dear reader, anyone can play or not, is to click on any Two of these links, go and leave a cheerful uplifting comment and tell them Celi sent you!! Oh I love this – this will be fun!
1.Never put your umbrella upside down in your drink! This is dangerous and much worse for your health than not eating your vegetables.
2.Never eat a whole packet of dried apricots by yourself and expect to be accepted in polite society.
3. Never drive on the wrong side of the road to get the attention of the cops with a car full of drunk friends singing We Are The Champions because you are the sober driver and want to be breathalysed! Stay at home and drink champagne it is better for you.
4. Never wear your contact lenses out to feed the cows when it is -10F (-23.3C) and blowing. They will freeze to your eyeballs! Go back inside and practice your saber throwing it is safer.
A clear conscience is usually a sign of a bad memory. Thought you should know.
6. And never tell food blog people that you favourite food is Fried Left Overs, most especially fried mashed potatoes! In fact for breakfast every day I fry the leftovers from the night before. Sometimes it is a weird breakfast especially if we had pasta, but there you are a deals a deal.
7.Oh and one last thing NEVER go and see a movie when you are in the early stages of labour with your third baby, and want to watch something to distract you. Then choose the one with Dueling Banjos in it because it sounded like a nice little musical!
No images of the farm today, sorry. I am going to go outside and converse with my old cow Daisy, her pregnancy test is due tomorrow and she is feeling a wee bit apprehensive so I will take the Purse Camera in case anything exciting happens!
Did I tell you that the combine harvesters are out and about. The rumble has begun!. Soon my corn walls will come down. Oh and never say never!
