Well, I am going to start my post today with some good news, and offer many congratulations to Prince William and Kate Middleton. I have just watched a television interview with them both, and they really do seem to be very down to earth, and really in love. Of course, they have been together for a long time, but I do wish them lots of luck for the future, and hope that this really will be a "happy ever after" royal love story. So there will be a royal wedding next year, and I think it will be something for the country to look forward to, especially in these dreary times with all the cutbacks to public services, people losing their jobs etc. etc.
The thing that I thought was lovely is the fact that William has given Kate his mother's engagement ring, as he wanted Princess Diana to be part of the celebration, even though she is no longer with us. That, to me, was pretty special.
Now I go back to The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award of yesterday. Before I come to my 5 indulgences, there is a hard bit that I have to do first. I have to bestow this award to 3 'sweet' bloggers of my choice. This seems terribly unfair to all the others that I do not pick, as I value all of my followers and enjoy reading their blogs so very much. However, here goes :
My first nomination for the award would be SkippyMom,("I Eat Soap") as she has been so supportive since I started blogging last month. BUT, I see that one of my fellow award winners has just nominated her!
On my list too, would have been Colenic from A Smile A Day, who, because of certain things, deserves it more than me, but she has already been nominated as well!
I would also have liked to nominate LindyLou from "News from Italy", but I see from her Blog that hers is an Award Free Blog, as, although she is touched that people think her Blog worthy of an award, it is not what she started her blog for.
So, I am passing the Award on to : Becky from "Just Being Me". We do seem to have quite a lot in common and she just seems like a very sweet person.
My next recipient is "Gawgus-things" because it was this Blogger that actually introduced me to this special world of blogging, and she is also a very special person to me.
And the final recipient is Maureen from "Daydream Living", who always writes such sweet blogs.
Enjoy your award ladies!
I seem to have rambled on a bit here, so I will keep you all in suspenders and leave it until tomorrow before I tell you about my 5 Indulgences!
