I am such a saddo. I have received an award from MaggieMay and I am so delighted you wouldn't believe it.

I have been asked to pass it on and I nominate

Three Dog Blog
Reluctant Memsahib
Dulwich Mum
Mutterings & Meaderings
Crystal Jigsaw
Frog in the Field
Stinking Bill
Not Wrong Just Different

I hope you are all as chuffed as I was and ask that you pass the award on to your top 10 blogs.

Love, Ann xx

I'm chuffed, but I don't know where and how to display it? I tried hanging it on the wall and it fell off. Then I tried standing it on my desk but couldn't find any space for my coffee cup. I know,I'll wear it like a medal on my chest.

I am NOT taking the mickey. I will take all the awards I can get. Thanks, sweetheart.

thank you my dear! i shall pass it on....

mutterings and meanderings said...

Thankyou so much - I am deeply honoured!

Maggie May said...

Hi, Have you passed the E logo onto the others? Also get your daughter to put one onto your blog! See ya!

Dumdad said...


Many thanks.

You don't actually say which award this is but I'm assuming it's the one at the end of your blog, the Excellent wotsit? I've already received one of these and passed it on to umpteen other bloggers but, hey, you can never get too much of a good thing! The more the merrier...

Sorry, I originally forgot to display the award. This has now been rectified. I'm so dumb at times, some would say I'm so dumb all the time! And, MaggieMay, I did it all on my own!

I'm so envious of you dumdad, imagine having more than one award.

Iota said...

Ooooh, thank you. That's so kind of you.

Maggie May said...

You are brilliant doing that by yourself. Now you need to stick it in your border for everyone to see, when your next post comes out it won't show!

Thank you so much. Just what I need after what must have been the crappiest week of my life.

Love Crystal xx

Oh MaggieMaggieMay, my precious award has plonked itself at the bottom of my blog and won't move. Bastard! I will fiddle with it, but it may have to wait until I get back from Switzerland so that our IT department can bail me out -again!

Retiredandcrazy said...

Oh Crystal what happened to make your week so bad? I must admit that we had a pretty foul week too, but this award had me up in the night admiring it and gloating at my good fortune. I really must get out more!

dulwichmum said...

OHMYGOD! Thank you so very much indeed. I wish that I could work out how to cut and paste this onto my site - I am such a bloomin air head. I am honoured.

Maggie nominated me too but I cannot seem to copy the Tag

Very well deserved. Margot xx

I'm the biggest dumbo in existence, but I cheat. I have the assistance of an IT department to help me!

OK valleysMam/dulwichmum I think this is what I did.

Right click on logo, click on "save picture as" (this should take you into your photograph software), save. Start new blog click on picture icon and insert into blog. This puts it into your new blog. To save it to your side bar go go "dashboard" "layout" "add page element" then add picture to blog.

I'm now off to catch the plane to Geneva. I'll pick up email on my blackberry, so please let me know how you get on. Once I'm in the apartment I'll have full email facilities so I can get back to you tomorrow. You can reach me on

Good luck. Love, Ann xx

Thanks Margot, you are always so kind to me. Best wishes and love, Ann xx

You're very kind, Thank you.
It's always a nice feeling that someone out there appreciates you, and I think a few of us seem to have had a bit of a rough time the last week or so.
It's brightened my day, I shall display it forthwith!
