We (not the royal we, as I always fear a spat of head-chopping; but as in me and my blog we) have been chosen as Blog of the Week by Top Blog Mag. I have no idea how great or small an honor this is, but I choose to accept in the spirit given. I owe my placement in no small part to the Good Woman as she was first to have an article accepted and told me of the magazine. Thank you dear.

So without further ado, today's entry can be found at You can click on using my bloglist if this link does click... I shall ask Geoff about that.

Thank you all. I am off to make sure I have a formal gown to go with my Paris shoes in case there is a party or anything.


Omega Mum said...

Well done! Have read it - very good.

lady macleod said...

(curtsy) Thank you dear. I'm amazed anyone is 'out' today - other than oui, as it is apparently a holiday everywhere in the West.
Thank you for dropping in.

I Beatrice said...

Oh my word, what an honour!

Thoroughly well deserved of course (curtsey, bow, scrap, smile winningly). Shall pop across and have a look now.

Omega Mum said...

It's raining so instead of camping am about to open bottle in front of roaring (and morally reprehensible) fire. Thanks so much for the nice comment on Top Blog Mag - really appreciated.

The Good Woman said...

Congrats again Lady M - My pleasure for the intro - anything to read more of your writing!

aminah said...

Lady Macleod, thankyou for all your kind messages on my blog. I just read your reply to my comment on hijabs. My name is Aminah and you can guess my background for yourself. Perhaps my blog might allow people who have never met a Muslim before think twice before hanging on every generalisation that the media casts.

Here's the quote you enjoyed so gift to you and all your readers!

"Minds are like parachutes. They only function when they are open." Sir James Dewar, Scientist (1877-1925)

debio said...

Visited TopBlog yesterday and left a comment; stupidly I thought it would show here - I am a technological dork! - anyway, I am so pleased, delighted and in awe.

Well done to the deserving; I am practising my curtsey

lady macleod said...


Never darlin', I would no' do such a vile thing.

thank you for sweet words, and thank you for coming by.


thank you. You are welcome. I think that may well be true, your blog is an excellent idea. thank you for the quote, I am adding it to my little collection.
thank you for coming by.

pluto said...

Gosh, well done! I'll go and have a look after this.

Brace yourself for a rush of traffic onto your site when all the readers of Top Blog Mag descend. You'll have to employ a secretary to take over the task of replying to comments (or how do we know you haven't done that already?)
