I am to pass this award on to six people, there are more than six who deserve this but I would like to give this to the following friends ...

Foamy, because you are such a sweetheart and you're always here for me and never let me down.

Chickory/K9, because you too are a sweetheart, are always here for me and protect me.

Sarah Sofia, because you are kind and generous and have offered me your help in the past.

Lil Lamb, because you are such a lovely, sweet girl and I like you to visit.

Pug
, because you have been such a good friend to me, given me good advice and you make me laugh.

HLiza
, because you have had a bad experience this year, you are a lovely person, I love your blog and your photography.

This has been difficult, there are so many who should be here and I don't like leaving anyone out... so I will mention April, because she needs cheering up and she works so hard; Mayden, because you are a sweetie and everyone's friend; Diane, because you are a lovely girl and a great Mom; Helene, because you are lovely and always cheerful; Shweta, because you are a lovely girl and need cheering up; Corby, because you are such a sweet girl; Anna, because you are such a brave, adventurous girl; Phos, because you are a lovely guy; J Cosmo, because you are a gentleman and very kind to me; Ruela, because you are so hot; Alexander, because you are a gentleman and kindred spirit; Glyn; because you are a lovely guy and have given me some good advice and /t., because you are such a talent and I love your comments...and of course Sparrow, for the lovely, generous person that she is...I guess I have most likely left a few people out, if so I apologise... and sadly some who don't visit here any more.

Sorry about the variation in font size, I have edited this post about six times now but the problem persists, so I will just leave it as is before anything else goes awry.♡ :-)

I was about to be completely offended by the seemingly callous variation in font sizes, but you did apologise* (* note the homage to Aussie spelling) for it, so I shall embrace the chaos.

Congratulations, and yes(!), I humbly accept my award [my very FIRST(!) in blogland, in fact]. Stay tuned for my "formal post of acceptance".

XOXOX,
Pugsley

ps: variation in font size? i see non. you must have corrected it ..
:)
i think i just might do this meme soon ..
but after i come back from gallivanting around this weekend ..
sans kids and spouse .. :D ..

dianne said...

I'm so sorry Puggles my sweet,I did try to correct the font size, I have had this problem before...I think Blogger has a mind of its own...you know I would never do anything to offend you. Actually it's not your first award, I gave you the 'Friends' award at the end of June this year.
Thank you for your wishes,I'm happy to share this with you and I look forward to your formal acceptance speech. :-) ♡

dianne said...

Thank you Foamy dear friend, I was so excited when I found that I had been awarded this...and I wanted to share it with you for the reasons I have already mentioned, it's so nice to have you for my friend. :)

Yes there is a variation in the font size, it is all supposed to be 'verdana', 'normal' size, it begins correctly, then gets bigger when I start the meme, then gets smaller when I write about Lil Lamb and then it stays like that.
I edited it so many times and it was all the same, then as soon as I published the post it changed... so after a while I just left it as is...this has happened to me before.

You can do your meme whenever you like Foamy,just enjoy your weekend and have some fun. :D ♡ xo

J Cosmo Newbery said...

Nice list. One word answers are tricky, you did well. Glad you didn't ask me. I have a one word answer to memes.

And thanks for the comment.

dianne said...

Thanks dear J Cosmo you are most welcome, you can have the award if you would like it and you don't have to do the meme or nominate any other blogs. :) ♡

HLiza said...

Hi Dianne, wow thanks a lot for this ..and you do deserve that award too..yours are always so true to yourself and it gets me in deep though everytime I come here..especially when you write those poetic words of yours. I haven't got an award for quite some time; not that I anticipate so much..I just stop playing meme some time ago. But this I will do; especially if it's for you. Thanks again you beautiful soul.

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, Dianne. I feel honored. i'll have to think of something to say about it on my blog. I'll also have to learn how to put it on my blog permanently.

Helene said...

Good for you for getting this award. I liked the meme too! I agree with Sparrow that you are full of passion here. I do enjoy that!

Thank you for the shout out. I am happy that you think of me as cheerful(and lovely doesnt hurt either! hehe).

dianne said...

Thanks dear Hliza , I was really excited when I found that I had been given this award...and I wanted to share it with you because you are a lovely person, you have had a very trying time after the accident,how you have handled it all takes patience and courage... and your blog is such a beautiful place to visit...
One day I hope my photography will be as professional as yours and that I will be able to put four pictures in a frame as you do...I still have so much to learn.
You don't have to do the meme if you don't want to, I don't think there are any rules involved with awards, if you want to it's up to you dear.
No poetry lately, not that I haven't written any, its just all too sad and I want to write happy things for my blog...thank you for the comment about my soul, 'beautiful'?, well I try to keep it honest and true. ♡ xo

dianne said...

Thank you dear Lil Lamb
you are most welcome and I appreciate the kindness you have shown me...plus I love visiting your blog.
You don't have to do the meme if you dont want, I don't think there are any rules about that...only if you want.
It's nice that you have put the 'friends' award that I gave you on your sidebar. :D xo ♡

dianne said...

Thanks dear Helene
I was both surprised and excited when I found that Sparrow had given me this award and for her lovely words...passion, yes...Lol :D

You are most welcome and you get an award as well because I didn't want to leave anyone out, you can do the meme if you want or not, I think yours would be interesting because you are always cheerful and lovely. xo ♡

A very thorough interview Leovi dear, but if you asked me the same questions today some of the answers would be different.
