“Oh my golly goshes and golly ah gee”! No make that 2 “Oh my golly goshes and golly ah gees”!
I feel rather bubbly today indeed. Maybe I should crack open some early Christmas Bubbly!
Yeah! …two lovely people…Sweetness (Public Transit User) and Dawny Hosking have both nominated me for the “The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers” Award over the past month or so.
Sadly Dawny (aka our wonderful Warrior Goddess) is not blogging at present due to difficulties she has been experiencing with her health. I certainly miss her very much and I’m sure many fellow bloggers out there do too. If you’re reading this Dawn, we all wish you a most wonderful Christmas together with your loved ones and also relief from the illness you suffer.
Sweetness6645 is still writing. She has a wonderfully entertaining blog as she Chronicles her day to day experiences on public transport. You should go on over and check out her site.
I myself would like to say a big thank you to both Sweetness and Dawn.

thanks dear 🙂 🙂
Congratulations Michelle and a giant thank you for nominating me, I am tickled rainbow colours. Sorry this is a late post but I have been caught up in lovely Christmas outings, shoppings, catching ups etc. etc. The only thing I need to do now is catch up with my exciting nomination and a little sleep would be nice 🙂
I read your answers, please don’t think I am copying when I do mine as I feel the same way about most of them, now wonder we are cyber blogging friends. Before I get onto mine I want to go check out the other wonderful bloggers., Cheers and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Love that phrase Rose…”tickled rainbow colours”. Congratulations on your award Rose. Take your time to respond. you might want to get through Christmas first. I know I’m getting very busy too at the moment. It often takes me a couple of months to accept my awards….you need time to write the acceptance and time to wvork out your nominees. Have a lovely Christmas once again.
Thank you again Michelle. I just reread my post to you, sorry about the typos, goodness I must have been tired. I have accepted and posted. It is interesting answering the questions, makes one really think about what one likes etc.
Thank you and well done! I don’t think I’ve heard of crab claw, I must look it up! I also love the uniqueness of orchids, and the hardiness and brightness of bougainvilleas.
So now I’m off to take a look at some of the blogs you have listed, thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you Beth. The crab’s claw is actually a tropical plant. Grows a lot in North Queensland and also in other tropical countries. There are a few different varieties. I think they’re all members of the Heliconia family. Brightly coloured, long lasting and rather interesting to look at..rather like a crab’s claw actually …or maybe several of them all joined together. I used to grow them when I lived in North Queensland.
I’ve just done an image search and I see what you mean, quite the eye catcher!
Yes aren’t they interesting.
Yes they’re all so bright and cheery. Blogs and flowers both I think.

Congratulations, and thank you! I love the answers to your questions that you have, too. Especially all the flowers you listed. Your answers reflect your appreciation for life and people.
I am very honored you nominated me and can’t wait to post mine and nominate others.
Congratulations to you too Nia. Well deserved as always. Your posts are always something I look forward to as they often help me to retrace places I’ve been and places I’ve seen. Lots of memories. So thank you.
Thank you Chess.
yes, congratulations dear one! thanks for passing it on to me, I am really honoured, I love to think of dadirridreaming as part of the sisterhood … blogging certainly is one way to have a voice, isn’t it?
You’re most welcome. Blogging is becoming a bit of passion for me but I think I best have a break soon and just prepare for Christmas. Hope you experience a wonderful relaxed Christmas and New Year.

Why thank you for that lovely reply Lisa. you are most welcome and congratulations on your own award now. Cheers,

Many thanks Sylvia. I have just reblogged the acceptance with a covering message, as I had somehow lost a very very important paragraph before it went to post that first time. The rest is still the same. I have just re-added the paragraph that was missing in which I link back.
Reblogged this on European Holiday and River Cruising Memoirs and commented:
Sorry but my computer is playing up terribly this morning and this has taken me a lot longer than I thought it would.
My first acceptance post has somehow left out the most important paragraph about my dear blogging friend Dawn so I hope you will all bare with me when I post this acceptance a second time. I would say I lost this important paragraph when I was putting the picture of the champagne glasses into the post as that is where the paragraph should have been and I have now added it in once again.
I very much miss Dear Dawn’s happy cheery posts. She is a most remarkable lady and she has always been able to bring a broad smile to my face even though she was suffering such a lot of pain and ill health herself. When I found the paragraph completely missing I was astounded. It is the most important paragraph and one where I started to thank both dear Dawn an lovely Sweetness for my own award. Dawn if you are reading our blogs still I want you to know we all miss you very much and hope your health is improving each and every day.
Congrats to you, Michelle. So well deserved. 🙂 I enjoyed your answers to the questions.
