    Oooo thank you very much. I am very touched you thought of me.

    In truth I’m unlikely to do them because I’m proper flaky but I will try to have a pop at one of them at some stage soon… when things settle down. What with Dad in hospital, half term on its way and the imminent release of two books coming up it might not happen until August but er hem… I will try. I like the dragony one.

      Me too – I eyeballed that dragon enviously for ages. If and whenever you fancy my friend – I know this is not a peaceful time for you. I couldn’t leave you out though – can’t be done. 🙂

          It would be a wonderful opportunity to nick Seamus Gallacher’s kilt though. 😀 You’d look cute in it, and we’d have the eternal question answered about the undies at the same time. 😀

    Wow! You accomplished an enormously impressive feat with your awards. Thanks for making me a part of it. I am honored and a bit swooney that I am in such illustrious company. I will enjoy carrying on the traditions.

    I have been kicking myself for letting so much time go by without posting again to my blog, nor knowing what my next post would be. My writing lately has been completely unrelated to my blog. As my foot swung, I’ve been catching it to remind myself to go in peace: all in good time, and all that. Now I know what my next post(s) will be. 🙂

    To celebrate your awards, I send you 7 truffle cakes decorated with daisies for you to eat all day on Sunday (with water) while you’re being gorgeous writing lyrics, and then singing them while driving alone in your blue car. I’ll recruit some Twitter birds to babysit the worms in the elevator. ❤


      jorobinson176 responded:
      May 20, 2014 at 9:56 am

      You always amaze me with you brilliant wordplay – bring on that truffle cake! I don’t think it matters to most good friends when one us us disappears for a while, and it’s always wonderful when they resurface. So you shouldn’t kick yourself at all – there are much more fun and deserving things to kick. 😉


        WeaverGrace said:
        May 21, 2014 at 2:20 am

        “I get a kick out of your” NO! Don’t kick me around!

        I used to play kickball, but that was because I had to in gym class, and I often got kicked there. I’ve heard of the game Kick The Can, but the only can I’ve kicked was in an outhouse. No, it didn’t tip over.

        I was kicking a soccer ball around with the toughest guy in high school The last time he pushed me, I went flying into a bench head-first, and shattered part of my nose.

        I’ll stick with dancing. I like kicking up my heels 🙂


          jorobinson176 responded:
          May 21, 2014 at 6:02 am

          Owie! Stick to dancing for sure – although – I did once get tossed by an overenthusiastic partner. He was very lucky that he didn’t get kicked. 😀

    Jo Robinson is not just a fellow blogger but has become a dear friend despite the thousands of miles between us. She very kindly nominated me with others that she supports, for a number of awards and I have accepted and will be forwarding the honours during the next week. Thank you Jo and I am sure that I mirror the thoughts of many of those who you support.♥♥♥
