More Awards

Another 2 awards have come my way, one from maggie may:

and one from the mother of this lot:


Maggie may and the mother of this lot are my guests of honour, today, as, without their generosity, this award ceremony would not be taking place. I would just like to say that I was delighted to receive both awards and would like to pass them on to a few people.

If you have just called in, whether you are on the award list or not, please help yourself to a cappuccino and a biscuit.



I originally intended that we would have champagne, accompanied by blini topped with sour cream and smoked salmon, but the current credit crisis is biting rather hard in our household, at the moment. In addition, it would appear that all of my favourite bloggers have seen fit to change their virtual bank account details and virtual pin numbers, without giving me any notice, so I couldn't even run to savoury biscuits and cheese, accompanied by 2 or 3 bottles of Liebfraumilch, on this occasion.

I would like to pass both awards on to the following people:

jules

mignon and

softinthehead

I would like to pass on the 'I've got a friend in you' award to
That's it, then folks. The party ends when all of the biscuits have gone. Have they gone, already? You don't hang about, you lot, do you? What about the washing up?

MM- I LOVE Santana As I am receiving my awards "Black Magic Woman" is playing. My Mom from Puerto Rico living in Harlem, this is what I grew up on. I would love tea and a biscuit. I too, understand a tight budget. I always keep a little P.R. rum in my bag I will pass it around if you like.

Mignon said...

Excuse me, it may be the rum but I forgot how to get my awards and display them on my blog. Anyone got a second to remind me. Thank you

Mean Mom said...

mignon - You are so quick off the mark! You're here, before I've left you a message, and whilst I'm still trying to check that my links work (not all of them did) and struggling with my spacing. I shall have to abandon the spacing. It doesn't matter how mcuh I edit it, it stays the same when I publish. Ooooh!

Glad you like the music. Rum sounds like a good idea. Just a minute, I need a pint glass for mine!

Mean Mom said...

Hi mignon - Yes, like this. Right click mouse on picture and click 'copy', then save it to one of the folders on your computer. Or, you can right click mouse on picture and click 'save picture as' and save it directly to one of your computer folders.

Then, go to 'customise' on your blog and 'add a page element'. Then 'add a picture' and browse for the picture you have saved. Don't forget to save it somewhere you can find it. I speak from experience!!

Maggie May said...

I love your cups and plates! Yum, thank you for the food & drink. I also love Santana!
What a pity that I can't stay to wash up! Oh gee..... I feel bad about that but my taxi is waiting!

Mean Mom said...

maggie may - Sorry I didn't manage to leave a comment for you, before you called in. It was quite late (much later than 6.17pm) before I actually published this post and, then I had formatting problems, by the time I'd 'messed about' with the photos. Now my eyes are sore!!

I don't seem to have any crockery that matches! Never mind! Glad you like Santana, too. I once fell asleep at one of their live concerts!!! You're forgiven about the washing up.

Debra in France said...

Thanks for the cuppa and biscuit. Much appriciated. Sorry I'd love to help with the washing up, my clients to visit, hair to cut. ta-ra!

Mean Mom said...

debra - You're welcome. Thanks for calling by. Don't worry about the washing up. Tra, bab. How did you know that I came from the Black Country? Did I mention it before?

the mother of this lot said...

Now look, I can't stop - I've got my own awards ceremony to attend. (To which you're invited, naturally) A car will be along shortly to pick you up. Sorry about the washing up. If I've got time I'll nip round tomorrow and sort it out.

Mean Mom said...

the mother - You're so good to me! Oooh, a car! Wonderful! Any chance of a red carpet, too? I'll let you off with the washing up, then.

Bitter Sweet Chocolate Irene said...

Oh, While I was so busy with my life, this one escaped me. Thanks very much mean Mom. I guess there is no food and drink left over? Oh, well...

Mean Mom said...

bitter sweet chocolate irene - That's a mouthful! Sorry, I bet no-one's ever said that before, have they? They have? Oh!

I saved a biscuit and a cappuccino especially for you, of course. Thanks for coming by.

Dusty Spider said...

Loved the tea and biscuits, your award ceremonies are so civilised...more than you can say for your parties!!!! When's the next one by the way? Oh! and get yourself a dishwasher, can't be doing with washing up.... Flick x

Mean Mom said...

dusty spider - Your 'dry' comments have caught me by surprise again, and,once more, I find I am laughing alone in the corner. I think I am a constant source of worry to my family! The next party? Hmmm.... I'll have to think about that one. Thanks for calling by.
