THE PAPA'S 2010.

Well that's one decade over (the so-called 'noughties), another begun (I wonder what this one will become known as).

Grief, do I feel rough, I dread to think just how ill I'd feel if I'd actually been drinking. Still I suppose I was on the 'hard stuff', cola as opposed to my usual tipple of blackcurrant and lemonade.

Anyway ..........

Not many people know this but her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and I have several things in common. Firstly, we are both English. Secondly, we both love dogs though, unlike Lizzie, I can't claim any real love for the CORGI. And thirdly (thinking wildly), neither of us carries money. So I thought to myself, what is good enough for her Maj must be good enough for me and decided, just like her, on a NEW YEARS HONOURS LIST to be known as the PAPA's - PEN AND PAPER AWARDS.

And as a result, I'd like to offer the above to all of my blogger buddies as a symbol of the pleasure you have given me over the last eight (or so months) I have been blogging - please feel free to place it on your blog and share it with others.

However, in common with the Queen's New Years Honours List, I'd also like to mention some blogs of special note who I award the below symbol to.

THE PAPA FOR ENDURANCE must surely go to KELLY'S THOUGHTS AND RAMBLINGS. A true trooper, Kelly has shown true endurance, well above the call of duty, by visiting every day.

THE PAPA FOR CONTRIBUTION TO LITERATURE goes to TINA at THE CLEAN WHITE PAGE for her wonderfully unique stories and to DORTE at DJS KRIMBLOG her fascinating, often humorous, short story series.

THE PAPA FOR INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS also goes to two blogs - my 'old' favourite CHITRA'S MY PILGRAMAGE and, the more recently found, RENNYBA'S TERELLA.

And finally, THE PAPA FOR CONTRIBUTION TO FILM, I award to TRACI at I'D LET MY KID SEE THAT a brand new blog started just 4 days ago though Traci is also known on Pen And Paper for her blog 38 AND GROWING.

My thanks to each and everyone of you for all the support you have shown me over the short time that Pen And Paper has been up and running. May you all have a happy and healthy 2010.

Petty, thank you so much for the award! Believe me the pleasure has been mutual. I'm thrilled with the recommendation, but I am equally proud to display the friends badge. Here's to a wonderful new year for us all with health and happiness in abundance.

"Her mouth's always in gear . . . " etc. Lovely!

Can't remember where I came across this beauty -

"She's ready to admit there are two of us in the relationship. But she thinks she's both of them!"

Happy Blogging. Happy New Year

You made my day and perhaps may be it would keep me motivated for the days to come. I am so happy to have found a wonderful friend and friends also through your blog. I have learnt and am learning so many things from your blog. Happy blogging to you also. hope our relationship consolidates in the days to come...


Kelly said...

What a great surprise to find the award you bestowed on me! I'll display it proudly on my blog along with the internet friendship label.

I love coming here each day and seeing what fun fact, joke, book review or whatever you have for us!! Always interesting! You're always so good to visit me in return and I truly appreciate that.

Hope your year is off to a good start. You've certainly helped to kick mine off on a positive note! Thanks!!

Oh, my! An award for my literature!!!!

What an excellent surprise on the first day of 2010. Thank you so much for thinking of me, Your Majesty!

What does one have to do to acquire one of these awards?

Give me some criteria and I'll get competetive!

Happy New Year! 2010 is going to be a great year in reading.

Kathryn said...

Oh, congrats to all the recipients!

I wish everyone a happy and healthy Twenty-Ten!

Let the good times ROLL!

Traci said...

WOW! My blog is four days old and it has an award and an international one at that! If I actually had money to carry, I could buy a plane ticket, fly across the Atlantic, rent a car, get lost, possibly cause a head-on crash by forgetting to drive on the left side, surprise and probably frighten you at your door, but then... you'd see that I was grinning ear to ear with bright red cheeks.

You're lovely and I am grateful. Happy new year.

Happy New Year to you!! I'm a bit like Her Majesty myself!! I don't carry money or shopping!!!

Jenners said...

Happy 2010 ...and I love your similarities to the Queen!!! Perhaps you should be Queen instead!

Melissa (My World) said...

Happy new Year to you as well. I hope this year is one of the best for you and yours.

A good idea Jenners, Petty Witter for Queen.
