Awards and Smiling
Another award – this time from the lovely Akelamalu. What a lovely award – guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face! And as I have to nominate three others, here they are:-
Graham, Prince & Tilly – not that he’s always funny, far from it, some previous posts are hearbreaking, but hopefully his life is on the up and Tilly is such a darling, full of wonderful antics
Rilly Super – who seems to have disappeared from blogland, but hope she will return soon. Her earlier posts had me crying with laughter.
Around my kitchen table – for often hilarious, wise and beautifully written posts. Wish there were more of them, table!
On the subject of making you smile, I have a beautiful wooden box on my dressing table shaped like an old fashioned pencil box. The wood is pale with darker wood inlaid, simple and sturdy, a no-nonsense box smudged with the years.
It was a present from a journalist I used to work with in the late eighties, who brought it back from Albania. We weren’t involved – he was happily married and expecting his first baby, but it was such a thoughtful and generous present, it always makes me smile.
And what is life if you can't smile?
