Lights. Camera. Action!
When I was a little girl, another lifetime ago (pause for audience laughter), way before blogging had been invented, I used to keep a diary. It was hardly top literature material, the pages were full of dilemmas over spots, boys and maths teachers. And I couldn't imagine any of my diaries being of any interest to anyone but myself. Sometimes even I failed to find them interesting.
Dear Boz I used to write in my diary under the duvet every night. And every year I would receive a brand new diary from Father Christmas. I have no idea why I called my diaries Boz, I just liked the name.
Fast forward to the year 2008, and I’m still writing a diary. But this time I have called it Flying Pink Elephants. Again, I have no idea why, I just liked the name. But there’s a difference this time, as other people are actually reading it. Readers from Belgium, Singapore, Japan, America and Malta to name a few home countries. And in return, they allow me to peep at their diary and their lives. I think that’s a fair exchange. But you don’t even have to write your own blog to read mine, as long as you have internet connection, the sky's the limit. What a technical world we now live in.
It was only last week that I celebrated FPE’s first year, and how very apt that I should receive an award on this first birthday. The Special Friendship award from my friend: http://nyumix.blogspot.com/
Thank you, I am proud to accept this award and I shall look after it, keep it clean, and display it on my blog.
I would also like to pass this award on to the many wonderful friends I have met through Flying Pink Elephants. So without further ado, in no particular order, this award goes to:

I should have been an actress!
