Oops, once again, I'm running a bit behind in acknowledging awards. So, without further delay, you will note I got two awards for the price of one. I was stunned to discover that Petronela Ungureanu aka unikorna at this site, Why I Wake Up Every Day, has bestowed the above awards to shy, humble and oh so unassuming me.
Both of the above awards, the "Fabulous Blog Ribbon" and the, "one Lovely Blog Award", asks that I mention who bestowed these awards upon me. Right then, done that part in the above paragraph. I'm also asked to forward the awards onto seven bloggers. Like the lovely Petronela did, I'm going to forward both awards to my seven lucky recipients. I'm also supposed to, in accordance with the Fabulous Blog Ribbon award, mention five fabulous moments in my life.
So here are the five fabulous moments in my life.
1 : The day I bought my first home in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.
2 : The day I got married.
3: The day my son was born and I insisted that my then wife held off from delivering our baby son until it became October Ten to avoid any confusion. I realised that one day he might move from England to live in North America where they do the dates in reverse. Thus 10/10 works either way. Okay, I'm kidding about asking her to hang on until past midnight.
4 : The day I took my son to go and get Penny the Jack Russell puppy and one day, modest internet star. The look on his face as they first met, was priceless.
5 : Tuesday, July 31, 2012. The day my son was offered, after so much heartache, a temporary job, starting September 3. And finally, after such a long time, he smiled.
And now the seven recipients. I would like each of them to know there is no obligation to acknowledge and I don't need you to make note that I bestowed these awards upon you. If you so desire, just place the photographs of the awards proudly on your site.
1 : Sweet Tea Reads
3 : PSYCHO CARNIVAL
4 : A Likely Story
5 : PT Dilloway
6 : thefeatherednest7 : Elephant's Child
