This morning, bleary eyed and dishevelled with my bed hair and dressing gown, I opened the door to my postie. Poor man, they should pay him danger money for having to experience that sight most mornings.
He handed over an intriguing cardboard box, which I immediately ripped open, to discover the most lovely surprise. I have been awarded a 'Bloggy Brilliant Award' from Azaria PR, even more lovely as the award is in the form of a yummy looking iced biscuit.
Thankfully, they also sent me a virtual rosette, so I can munch the biscuit and still be able to adorn my blog with pride.
It is so lovely to receive something 'just because', and Azaria are 'one of the first PR agencies in the UK to acknowledge the blogger's hard work'.
Guys, I'm so touched that you think my lil' old blog is worthy of an award. I am taking it as a positive that the award came directly from the agency, and I wasn't nominated by a reader (I shan't dwell on the fact that none of you lot nominated me!!), and very happy they made particular reference to my Magpie Monday feature, which I also love.
So thanks very, very much, I shall stop writing now before I go into 'Oscar acceptance speech' mode, but I will celebrate with a nice cuppa and my delicious biscuit. x
