The colours of friendship

How honoured do I feel? The answer is - very. On Friday, before I ran out the door to meet my friend Chamelle for birthday drinks, (yep, another birthday) I took a peep at my favourite blogs. It was when I read
I discovered that I’d been given an award! ‘The colours of friendship’ award, which I would like to say a huge thank you for. It definitely put a smile on my face and a spring in my step!
I am proudly displaying the award, and I am passing it on to all the folks out there who read my blog and take the time out of their busy lives to post me a comment. It wouldn’t be the same without you!

So, I’m passing it on to:

Thanks again for kindly passing this onto me.

This is the first chance I’ve had to write since Friday. After receiving my award (listen to me, you'd think I'd been to The Oscars) I met my pal Chamelle, and a couple of her friends, for a birthday celebration.
Apparently, according to The News, the weekend just gone was the worst weekend of the year for drunken accidents. This being due to the fact it was the most popular weekend for Christmas get-togethers and office Christmas parties. And, right on cue, our first image of the night was a girl slumped on the pavement, sprayed in her own sick. Luckily she wasn’t on her own, her friends were standing around, trying to work out what to do with her.
I can honestly say that I have never done that, nor do I have any intentions of doing that.
Our evening contained yabbering on the red sofa in a busy bar, with a little boogie and a few glasses of wine. It was great to see my pal, who I met one fateful day at a certain publishing house, and after playing a few tricks on each other, we’ve been faithful friends ever since.
Please join me in raising your glass to friendship and friendship awards!

Thanks for the award. But I must really give you the CREATIVE award! You make such wonderful X'mas cards!

Wow - loving the cards - I didn't get a second to make mine honey so I'm feeling very guilty, but very hopeful that one of those beauties may be winging it's way to me !

Eeeeewwww puking on the pavement - no wonder the rest of the world thinks we're a bunch of louts with that kind of behaviour going on - crikey !


The World According to Me said...

Hello Blur

It was a pleasure to pass on the award to you.

Thanks for the Christmas card comment. I was actually a little stuck with ideas for my 'picture of the day' so I thought I would share the creative cards with you!

The World According to Me said...

Hello Spangleystar. (I love that name!)

Puking on the pavement, whatever next?! At least she didn't have her posh frock on.

Check out your letter box, any day now!

Thanks for the award ^_^
I love the cards that you made.
Drunk girl on the pavement would've made a great picture of the day!

The World According to Me said...

Hello Seagrape.

Only too pleased to pass the award on.

He, he, can you imagine if I'd asked if she minded being my picture of the day?! Although thinking about it, she'd probably lost the power of speech! Judging by the look of her!

Krystle said...

The cards look great:) Well Done! :)

Hey thanks Krystle. Nice of you to say so.
