This Just In..

I placed a very respectable second place in Best Blog Outside North America and the UK behind Sicily Scene. Thank you to everyone who voted for me, and especially those who voted more than once. Being the new kid I was surprised to be nominated and pleased to have done so well. Thank you all.

I have had a very good response to the poll. "How you met John" and "stories of Morocco" have run neck and neck, so that's what we shall do.

Congratulations! And sorry to hear you have been laid low. With so much going on here I'm not surprised...

Will investigate at leisure.

Lady M, congratulations. You have a lovely blog, too and I shall visit often. I feel I know you already from your comments over at James's. Auguri from Sicily.

Annie said...

Congratulations! Will have to go read more now and get all caught up after my break away.

Well done. I have to confess that I tried to vote several times and was rubbish, as I have been for Mutley, but will do much better (about the time I learn how to publish pictures). I am very, very pleased for you but incredibly guilty because if I'd been a bit more industrious, maybe you'd have been first (which you should have been)

annie, omega mum, and brillig

I LOVE MY READERS!! You are all so fabulous. You would think from your reactions I just walked away with Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars. Talk about a lift! Winning would be nice, but having you is better. Thank you for your incredible support and thank you for coming by.

Omega Mum said...

As you must know by now, there's nothing like vicarious emotion for stirring the blood. I love it!!! Anyway, we all want to come to your launch party.

Hi Lady Mac,
In case you think the old lady is crazy, I want to explain. I came here yesterday to congratulate you but I came via Sally from Norfolk's blogroll.

I read the post before I commented, noted 40 or more comments, went down to the bottom and added mine. Then I was going back up the comments and noticed I had already commented on this one.

Then I checked on the date and saw it was an old post, so Sally from Norfolk has linked to that one post rather than the home page.

So here I am, not too crazy after all, congratulating you for your placing in the category.
As I said yesterday you are a great writer and I admire that.
regards

Hello and I am very happy to find your blog; congratulations - I have only read a couple of posts, but I can say what a deserving near winner you are(next time will be the one). I am really looking forward to reading much more (befores and after)- your profile and tag post are so varied and a bit wild - great..

I Beatrice said...

Congratulations! Second was respectable indeed for so new a blogger -most of us weren't even nominated!

Wouldn't it be wonderful, now, if we could have our own Awards party - to which all these lovely people could come. Some day, we must all arrange to meet anyway.

Looking forward to Paris meanwhile....
