MANY THANKS ..........

This post, today is to say thank you.First, I want to thank dustjacketattic for bestowing an award upon me. Well, what an honour. She has the most wonderful blog with the most beautiful fashion photographs, so pick up your skirts and dash over to see her. You will be amazed. Thank you so much for your continued support with your brilliant comments. I hope that you will accept the above award for being such a supportive blogging friend.Next award goes to Simone, creator of the most beautiful blog, The Bottom of the Ironing Basket.Simone was kind enough to give me an award and I am now returning the compliment as it's a way of saying thank you. Simone is the most generous, kind and thoughtful person. She amazes me at how she always remembers special days for different countries, to thank people for all sorts of different things and tells us wonderful stories of her family and her travels with the most beautiful images you ever did see. Every time that she does a post, I always think...oh, I should have thought of that.She is one of the few Brit bloggers, so I think of her as my English blogging buddy. Her comments are NEARLY as long as mine and are full of praise and encouragement. I hope, Simone, that you will accept the above award for your support to me on my blogging journey.Dear Julie...my emailing buddy. Julie's blog Being Ruby is a photographic gem. If you like gorgeous photography, grab your camera and go and watch and learn. Every time Julie posts, I say to myself.."I'd love that one in a frame", they are so lovely and her text is beautifully written, sometimes emotional and sometimes funny and often both. The posts that she does are never run of the mill. They are always different and a joy to look at. Please accept this award, Julie with thanks for being such a special blogging pal.
Next on my hit list is Millie at The Laurel Hedge.Millie's blog is so full of fun, with the best stories of her family, her work and with a bit of interiors, food and all sorts, thrown in for good measure. Millie was one of the first blogs that I found, along with all the award winners. Her sense of humour is the best and her blog is one of the first that I look at.I'm not sure how you feel about awards, Millie. but I'm really just doing it to thank you for your support , to say how pleased I am re the Doc. and how you've been through the mill (ha ha!!) a bit lately, and to say good on ya Mills, your a dinki-di.!!!!
TO ALL OF MY READERS PLEASE NOTE.... THE LADY-IN-WAITING REFERENCE ON MILLIE'S AWARD, REFERS TO THE LENGTH OF TIME IT IS TAKING FOR HER BATHROOM TO BE FINISHED AND DOES NOT NOW OR ANY TIME IN THE FUTURE, REFER TO MILLIE BEING WITH CHILD !!!! I THINK THAT I HAVE JUST SCARED THE PANTS OFF OF HER !!!!
Last, but absolutely definitely not least is Deb from Dumbwittellher. Deb was another first blog that I found and she had only started a few weeks before me. Debs blog is fabulous and so much deeper than mine !!!! She has taught me much from her posts, which deal with things as diverse as interiors, her countries politics to department stores and film critique. Deb has also been a supportive, kind and generous person and I'm honoured to call her my friend. Please accept this award Deb for being all of the above, all of the time.
Well, there you have it. Just a few of my blogging friends who have been so kind and supportive.There are so many more of you who have supported me and I hope that I can thank you in the same way in the future.
Jackie

  2. OMG Jac, you've just send me into total meltdown! I thought at 53 you were suggesting I was pregnant again! Geez, my heart almost jumped from my body - couldn't imagine anything worse!! My head was spinning, thinking I'd be the laughing stock of Blogosphere, then I twigged, it's a bathroom I'm waiting on, not another baby. So thank you dear girl for this lovely Award, MOTH will be shown it in full A2 mode tonight.
    Millie ^_^

  3. Honey THANK YOU! You are a total gem! Seriously I'm touched that you would do this and say those lovely words. Thanks you.

    I'm proud to say that I'm friends with all of the above and they are terrific girls.

    ps wonder if Millie has calmed down yet! Fan someone...

  5. Oh wow, thank you so much.....that is absolutely lovely Jackie.....you have made my day!

    I agree with the fabulous DJ above that all these girls are wonderful, I follow all their blogs, and I am very honoured to be in such fantastic company!

    You are a star Jackie.....a blog is not really quite enough to house all your talents and abilities....which you clearly have in abundance....your blog is a real pleasure....although sometimes it is better accompanied by a stiff drink rather than just a cup of tea!!

    To paraphrase slightly, thank heavens for naughty girls....as I believe some lovely Frenchman once said ;) xo

    PS I LOVED Millie's award.....I knew immediately that you meant the bathroom (and it's a very lovely one in the image of her award).....but the baby comment made me hoot LOL! :)

  8. Jacqueline!!!
    You never cease to amaze me.. you are such a wonderfully supportive and generous friend, blogger extraordinaire and the funniest and most diverse person I have met in years and here you are giving me an award. I'm sure you're my #1 fan. haha.

    I'm honoured to be included with this fabulous bunch of talented and entertaining girls who's blogs are a delight to visit. Of course you embarrass me with your kind comments, and I suspect you are a little biased, yet I will accept them graciously as they brighten my day and encourage me to keep doing this blogging gig.

    And yes... I just wished I'd seen Millie's comment before the postcript went up!!

    Keep on shining Jackie!!

  12. Wow....you did it again. My mascara is running down my face & into my lines & creases. Jackie you continue to inspire me, give me encouragement & hope, make me laugh & laugh some more, & appreciate women more than I can say. I just feel incredibly fortunate to be included with all the other talented, remarkable bloggers. I really never ever think of myself as clever. I am coping that statement & mailing it to all my family members. Believe me when I say, no one holds a candle to you my dear friend, NO ONE. I accept this fabulous award with all the joy in my heart ~ xx deb

  13. These ladies are all deserving of your love and admiration. I of course am ga-ga for Julie. Sometimes it's weird I feel like I have the two of you on either side of me and in a way you are. I don't know how I got so lucky to find the two of you!!!
    I'm sitting here in the local library looking for a book and have found myself on this computer looking at blogs!!! Makes me realize that I really need to get my computer in for a fix. I know I've been saying that for weeks! This one is so fast it makes mine look like a real DOG!!!!
    Really need to get out of here.
    Ta-ta,
    Carole

  16. Hi Jackie,
    This post was so enjoyable to read..really!
    It is a testament to how blogging truly does have an impact on our lives..I think what I love most is making new friends and creating a bond with so many people from so many walks of life..When I started to blog, I thought it would be another way to express myself and it still is. I never realized that this is a place for us to create relationships too. So to you Jackie and your incredible wit, sense of humor and kindness. So glad to be a small part of this very cool connection!
    Have a wonderful weekend!
