Awards Awards!

I am really honoured this week; I have two more awards!

Really chuffed to have come third in DJK's Wordless Wednesday competition this week (see right). For those who are not familiar with Wordless Wednesday, I heartily recommend a visit to DJ's blog, Chez Aspie, where her weekly caption-competition brings a plethora of high-class entries (including mine, of course. Obviously). Get yours in too!

My other award is from JJ, who thinks my blog is fabulous. Well, thank you, JJ, and thank you for the challenge of naming five obsessions (the task attached to the award). Now, those who know me well will realise how difficult this challenge is for me, because I am not, in any way, an obsessive person. If I were, however, I think my obsessions would be:

• saving money (I have the bankers* to thank for this one)
• being on time
• loading the dishwasher in a certain way
• not hoarding (the current replacement for my hoarding obsession)
• not being obsessive
  * Feel free to translate into rhyming slang.

The Rules for receiving the above award are:
1. Copy and paste the rules and instructions into your post.
2. Post the award, and a link to the person who gave it to you.
3. Post five of your addictions.
4. Post five winners and link to them as well.
5. Inform your winners by commenting on their blogs.

So, my winners are: SallyQ, Karen, Trousers, B, Tom Foolery, and Zinnia.

Your blog IS fabulous darling!

JJ said...

Oooh, are sure ... that dishwasher loading sounds really quite scary.

KAREN said...

Thank you Leigh - you're too kind :o)

(I'm with you on the dishwasher thing, but I try and persuade other people to do it if I can!)


Oh Leigh, sooo kind and much appreciated m'dear. Hmmmm, I'm now going to have to ponder the obsessions I'm willing to reveal
;-) TFX

Lettice said...

I was once told that the collective noun for bankers is a wunch. I believe it to be true.

Lane said...

Yes, yours is a very fabulous blog.

I hope to inherit your No.1 obsession very soon:-)

Oh, many thanks leigh. I will probably respond over at mine later this weekend or early next week.

Much appreciated x

DJ Kirkby said...

I'm with Helen on this one! Your blog IS fabulous.

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

Aarrgghh blogger ate my comment, let me try again. Leigh, thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog. You're right that I don't really do awards, but it's still a great pleasure to receive one. I try to avoid obsessions as they're such hard work, but if I did have five, they would be:
1. Correct spelling
2. Correct use of apostrophes
3. Eating
4. Drinking
5. Making funerals perfect

Hey there, you Superior Scribbler, you! First of all, I'm not "spamming" you; I promise! Second of all, I'd like to introduce myself: I'm Melissa B., The Scholastic Scribe, & I'm the "Original" Superior Scribbler! Third thing on my mind: I've been nominated for a pretty prestigious blog award; I'd greatly appreciate your vote, so if you click on over to my place, you'll see the info. It's an annual award from EduBlog, and I'm up for Best Individual Blog. And 4th thing on today's agenda: I've got a cute "contest," of sorts, going on at my place every Sunday. Please come by this Sunday for the Silly Sunday Sweepstakes. And, thanks for your support!

Just wanted to stop by to say Merry Christmas to you and I hope 2009 proves to be a great one for you!

Leigh said...

Helen - Thank you, honey. You say the nicest things!

JJ - I can be quite scary too, if someone else tries to load it for me...

Karen - I need to get to that casual dishwasher-attitude. Are there evening classes for it?

TF - Ha! Know the feeling ;-)

Lettice - Hello! A wunch sounds almost rude enough to be appropriate - I'll go with that.

Lane - If you catch the money-saving bug, I'd be happy to be contaminated too. I've just the sore throat so far.

Trousers - Looking forward to it!

DJ - Thank you!

Zinnia - Oh, what an honour! A Z-meme on my blog!! I'm definitely with you on no.2. Do you have Lynne Truss's pull-out sticker sheets?

Melissa - Hi! You're welcome here, spamming or not! I'll pop over to yours and take a look. Good luck with the comp.

SarahG - And a Happy New Year to you!
