Awards Galore!

lemonadeaward

Thank you Gutsy Writer, for sending me the Lemonade Award. That was a nice surprise.

"The Lemonade Award is passed to bloggers for showing great Attitude and/or Gratitude."

Gutsy Writer says about me: " ... I love the way you connect with your readers. It's almost as if I'm sitting in your living room having a coffee." I say it is rewarding to know that I am getting through to somebody! Great feeling.

The rules stipulate that a recipient pass it on to another ten bloggers, but I have to confess I will pass on that one, mainly because of the time aspect, but I also feel a little apprehensive about the possibility of not being fair to people. (Read that as being a tad cowardly!)

Then for good measure Gutsy Writer threw in another award, for being cool. Me cool? I saay!

BTW my old mother has recovered quite well from the trauma of being conned (see previous post). Her strongest feeling now is that of embarrassment. How could I believe him? she asks herself. She is now instead a great believer in putting the security chain on before opening her door!

Glad to hear your Mom is doing better....embarrassment isn't the end of the world. Stupid turd. My word is harcots...are those really naughty beans?

Oreneta - Thank you. "Harcots", very funny! :-)

You deserve the awards!! And I'm so glad your mom is doing well!

swenglishexpat said...

Diane - Thank you! I'll tell her. ;-)

Your mum is a tough bird - thank goodness for that! It's amazing to think that she needs a security chain. Here, north of Stockholm, we leave our doors open/unlocked all day long!

I was shocked by the house prices in both Malmö and Lund.. must be due to Öresundsbro.

Sadly, with all the development, crime rate goes up as well it seems. A chain has never been needed before, but this part of town has a large number of pensioners, so ....

Glad you accepted the awards you deserve, and that your Mother is keeping safe with the lock on her door. One day I'd like to hear more about the book you're writing. I hope I didn't miss that posting.
See you soon.

GW - I'll have to think about how to write a post about the book writing, since I do not wish to reveal too much. Perhaps I'll blog about the difficulties with the writing process itself.
