Super Awards & Christmas Decorations

Thank you to the lovely DJ Kirkby for my fab Superior Scribbler Award, it's much appreciated, and rather gorgeous too.

The Rules that go with this award are as follows:
1. Every superior scribbler must name other super scribblers, although with so many brilliant ones to choose from, it's almost impossible to do. So without further ado, I'd like to nominate Kat, Christina, Pat P, Flowerpot, Melissa Marsh, JJ, Fionnuala, Mummy & Carol
2. Link back to the name of the blog that gave you the award, Chez Aspie.
3. Display the award and link to this post, which explains the award.
4. Add your name to the Mr Linky List, some way down the page, as a record of who the superest scribblers are.

S insisted that we put up the Christmas tree on Saturday, and not having the energy to argue, and to be honest, having someone so enthusiastic to assist, I did as she asked and we (well it was her really) dragged boxes and bags down from the loft. So now the tree is up, and covered in copious amounts of baubles, including red-painted wooden soldiers, two angels (?) amongst other things, and hundreds of twinkling lights. The wreath is glistening on the front door, but I've still to dress the banisters with the rather lovely garland that my father gave us a couple of years ago.

So despite my lack of enthusiasm, I'm slowly getting prepared for 25th, only just over two weeks away. Groan! Double groan, I've just realized it's the last one of Spooks tonight, blimey, that went by rather fast, but then most good things tend to, don't they?

Thank you so much, Deb! I feel quite humbled. :-)

Yay on getting the tree up! It's always a bit of work, but the results are worth it.

Lane Mathias said...

Congrats on the award. Well deserved:-)

I braved the loft and wrestled with the tree on Sunday too. Once I'd got over my grumpiness, I quite enjoyed rediscovering all the baubles:-)

Right off to catch the last Spooks. Boo:-(
