You Really Shouldn’t Have!

July 10, 2008

My lovely fellow South London blogsister, Goodbye To All Fat, has sweetly awarded me this adorable Arte e Pico thingy. Isn’t it gorgeous? And don’t you just love her dress? I confess that, apart from the deep honour, I’m not a hundred per cent sure that I’ve grasped the full import, but I do know that I must now pass the flaming baton – so like the Bejing Olympics! – to five other bloggers. I would like to nominate Rosiero at Alcoholic Daze for a blog so honest and harrowing it never fails to distract me from my own ridiculous woes, I Want Slippers for her sweetly optimistic tale of adultery, in the hope this will encourage her to get back online after being scared by a lawyer (how I know that feeling!), Rural Villager for a blog which is a healthy blast of fresh air for this jaded city girl, Fiction Fobic for quirky book reviews which everyone should read, and (Very) Lost in France, for anyone still toying with the idea of buying their own chateau. I would have nominated Potty Mummy but she seems to have hundreds of awards already, as does splendid Dulwich Mum, and next time I’m going to nominate the very lovely Tarte Tartan and Cat Calls, not forgetting dear Married with 4, who sadly seems to have stopped blogging. Nunhead Mum of One would have been on my list, but the award originally came from her, and of course Goodbye To All Fat deserves it more than anyone – but has already got it.
Phew. It just remains for me to thank my astrologist, my florist, my team of lawyers and, of course, Mr X, without whom none of this would have been impossible. And anyone else who knows me! Mwah to you all xxx. Ooopsie, think I’ve torn my frock getting off the podium ….

    Hi DD,

    Very pleased to see that Rosiero and VLiF are on your list as both of those were very nearly on my list as well!

    Glad you like the dress and the completely fake cyber award ceremony — we’re not silly blogsters at all, are we? 😉

    Best wishes,

    Very many thanks for your kind comments and the award. I think I will leave this aside for a couple of days as I was awarded another prize today as well. Do not want to appear too greedy all on one day! In fact will have to find 5 other bloggers on my list – I seem to have found some really good ‘cowboy’ blogs over in the States – just love those men in chaps!!! As they say in the States “Have a Nice Day” and keep looking for that Stunt Man!

    Why thank you DD (and GTAF). I feel speechless. What do I do now? I am new to the award system.

    Congratulations DD. And I’m sure a good tailor can repair the tear in your dress…

    My hands are sore from all the clapping. Will raise my glass to you instead – fĂ©licitations! TTx

    Goodbye, no, we are certainly not silly, we are just doing our best to enjoy ….Lindsay, so glad you are being showered with prizes, Rosiero, the first (and possibly most important) thing to do is to put on a long satin dress and high heels. The rest will come naturally ….PM, you don’t know a good seamstress, do you? My last couturier snapped under the strain ….Ms CatCalls, think you should know that taffeta doesn’t stand up to camping, have fun now, TT, thank goodness your hands aren’t too sore to clutch a glass, glad your priorities are right! Cheers, everyone!

    Sorry, DD, I mean I do not know how to transfer the image of the award on to my blog or what I am supposed to do then. Am a bit green to all this, I am afraid. Probably means I do not deserve it!!

  • dulwichmum July 13, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Oh DD darling,

    I wish you had nominated me, a girl can never have enough nominations. Good for you though sweetie, well deserved.

    Mwah x

    By the way, I have just moved to – fyi!

  • DulwichDivorcee July 13, 2008 at 2:51 pm

    Oh DM, now I feel terrible …just assumed your mantlepiece was too, too crowded. I tell you what, let’s have a pact – I’ll nominate you next time if you nominate me ….

    A new address? Is this – gulp – your own website? I am even more in awe than ever …x

  • DulwichDivorcee July 13, 2008 at 3:03 pm

    Rosiero, don’t worry, I asked Goodbye the exact same questions and she explained it all – click on the image, do ‘save as’ to your desktop, then you go into the layout of your blog and download the image from your desktop. Hey presto! Believe me, if I can do it, you can ….Good luck with your mission!

  • rosiero July 14, 2008 at 1:55 am

    Thanks…mission accomplished! And thanks again for choosing little ol’ me.
