The best thing since sliced bread

Whilst blog hopping yesterday, I couldn't help noticing my name in pink writing, upon the blog of:
"What's all this about?" I thought to myself. "What have I done to deserve a mention on a fellow bloggers blog?" Well, it seems that little old me has won an award. An award for doing something which gives me immense pleasure - writing about the world according to me.
It can be a funny sort of world, the kind of world where cheese would be free, chocolate bars would triple in size and George Michael would be hopelessly in love with me, if I were to rule this world. Unfortunately I do not rule the world, so I'm afraid you have to pay for your cheese portions, one chocolate bar is never enough, and George is completely oblivious to my existence.
But hey, I'm getting side tracked with this world business. Oh and one last thing - if I was in charge, vineyards would grow in gardens and money would grow on trees. How handy would that be.
Moving on, I am honoured to receive this award from my fellow blogger, who truly deserves the award herself for her interesting and entertaining posts, and pictures, of life in her corner of the planet
By the way, my mum is still in awe of this blog business, the other day she said, "I can't believe people all over the world are commenting on my teapots, wait till I tell your Auntie Wendy!" My mother is still slightly daunted by technology but thinks blogging is one of the best things since sliced bread. And do you know what, I'm inclined to agree with her on this one.
Therefore, I would like to pass this award on to bloggers who I think are worthy of the award.

Hello Blur

Money growing trees are my kind of trees! And a vineyard per garden, would mean no shortage of wine, and no ridiculous prices to pay!

The World According To Me said...

Thanks Nick. Congratulation with your award too, all well deserved. I am still picturing you on that rocking chair with your story telling!

Can you imagine me ruling the world?! I would make it a far happier and cheaper place to live, with special privileges to bloggers!

You are more than welcome Amel. It's a joy to read your posts and hear the progress you are making with languages. It's also a pleasure to read the love and gratitude you have for your family and life in general.

Thanks for saying that about my blog. It means a lot to hear that.

My mother and her teapots!

Thank you so much, I really didn't expect that! *hugs* And... damn, I wish you could rule the world, you can keep George Michael as long as chocolate bars are huge and cheese is for free! How about setting up a new country? Something like an inexpensive hippie version of Switzerland ;)

The World According To Me said...

You're welcome Bitter Chocolate. I've really enjoyed reading your thought provoking posts.

That's a deal! I'll set up a new country. Not sure how I'll go about it, but it will be the best place to live. Ever.
