A Week of Awards!

The first time for anything is always exciting and receiving one's first blog award is no exception. I was delighted and then to add to the thrill there came another.........and another. Funny how things often come all at once. Thank you so much to the three lovely ladies who thought me a worthy recipient.
Of course, once the euphoria wore off came the realisation I had to pass them on and that meant some serious thinking and decision making. I'm sure everyone feels like giving them to everyone and the book blogging world is so full of wonderful people and blogs. we go

A big thank you to Marg at Reading Adventures for the gorgeous dragon award. I really appreciate this one because commenting is something I've tried to work on.

This award is for those followers who are the most loyal and give bloggers joy by commenting regularly and giving their support. Pass it on to 3 to 7 followers who are as loyal as dragons.

I'm passing this one on to five bloggers who took the time from their busy lives to welcome the new kid on the block , who commented on my first posts and became my first followers. Your encouragement and support was much appreciated - thank you!
