  1. That's very sweet, thanks. :)

    My first blog award. Hmm, I'll need to think about what to say and who to nominate when I'm more awake (it's 2;30AM where I am).

  2. Thank you! How very kind. I have added it to my awards page and will work on the requirements over the next few days.

  3. Congratulations.

    And thank you so much. You are amazing!

  4. Aw thanks! I don't um, do the awards thing on my blog, but I really appreciate being mentioned! And I'm 9th, 9 is my favorite number!

  5. You made my day. This is such a nice surprise.
    Thank you for considering me.


  6. Thank you SO much, Louise! Wow! An Honor!
    Now I have to get to work!
    Appreciate it!

  7. Hi Louise!
    I thank you so, so, so much for the award, but I simply do NOT have ALL the time it takes to accept awards. I SO wish I could, but I can't. I am very backlogged with my reading and NEED to concentrate on that, and only that. Thank you SO much for considering me! I posted this on my Blog, the thanks, but I just can't do it.
    Again, I am SO very honored!
