I've been enjoying getting to know my fellow ABCer Suburbia over in Bristol and it comes as no surprise she's been recognised as giving 'Good Chat'. Her blog is a lively one, as are the comments she leaves over here. It's great to find that she thinks the same about me. There doesn't appear to be firm guidelines on passing this award on, so I'm going to nominate Flighty - another dear friend who always leaves great comments here, gossips away over at Flighty's Plot and encourages non-Bloggers to start blogging. I'm also nominating Joy - I get at least one cheery message a day from her over at Blotanical as well as her regular comments on here. Finally, I'm giving this to Anna in the hope it will encourage her to start blogging as soon as time permits and to thank her again for her contribution. Stand up and take a bow the three of you!
I now need to let you into a little secret. I'm actually away whilst you're reading this (which explains why I'm not getting back to you at the moment), but I'm giving the new posting facilities in Google Beta a 'destruction' (i.e. thorough) test at the moment. Hopefully, something will pop up for you to read pretty much every day until I get back. However, it also means I'm facing my first ever Blogging deadline to get stuff done and I've encountered a problem with the instructions for the You Cheer Me Up award Deborah kindly awarded me last week. So I'm sorry Deborah - I haven't forgotten about it, I have my all nominees lined up, but I've simply run out of time to get this one right. Also Suburbia and Growing Our Own, I haven't forgotten about the meme you've both tagged me with - the questions are very good, but I need some more time to mull over my reply and I'll be doing this down in sunny Dorset over the next few days.
So dear reader, just like buses coming along, it's going to take me three attempts to answer and pass on all my awards.
