Lovely Blog.....

Well it's been a while since I received an award but the lovely Thom at

Thoms Place 4 Well Whatever

has bestowed this one on me....

Like all awards it comes with rules:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

So I pass this award on to the following who I have only recently got to know:

Spiky Zora Jones (Bit Player Reflects)

Cloudia (Comfort Spiral)

Fandango (Dragon's Lair)

If you haven't already, go have a read of all those great blogs.

Also Mike at Rambling Stuff gave me this little beauty- The Best Follower Award!

Of course it comes with rules:
Put this Award in a post on your blog
Invite 10 people to take this award
Don’t forget to link back to the person that gave this award to you.
Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog
Share the love to those who get this award.

Mike was awarded this by Sandee who gave it to her top 10 commenters, so Mike did the same and I'm going to do the same too. So please will the following please accept this award with my thanks for reading my drivel and commenting so regularly.

Ron (Vent)
Bee (Muffin 55)

I hope you will all accept the awards and pass them on but of course it's not compulsory, just know that I appreciate you all.
