You love me! You really love me!

 I want to thank Johnny Cash, The Clancy brothers and Tommy Makem, Wham!, The Smiths, Aunt Kathleen, my sister in law Teresa, Sonia at Pro hands who threads my eyebrows, Abel  and Cole for delivering vegetables fresh and in season to my door, Fat Face and Boden for clothes that a  40 something pudgemama can wear and still feel like a fox, and most of all, thank you to the excellent Last Welsh Martyr for giving me this...

I love you! Last Welsh Martyr (  a mouthful, can I call you Nerys?)  I love you Nerys!
I love you, sistah! I love you! Everybody, I love you. I love you all . . . I love you. Everybody who's involved with this, I love you. I love you. Everybody I've ever met. Everybody I've never met.
It has been a long journey to this moment.

And now, I have to pass a little sunshine on.

I'm meant to choose 12. But I have ruthlessly excised 2 groups; the mega bloggers, because they are too busy being stars in the blogging firmament for passing awards around, and the men. I may be being a little sexist here, sorry chaps, you're terrific, but I feel that the daisies are a girl thing.
The daisies go to the following:



Sue in Japan

The Bookworm

Thinking Love No Twaddle

Lucy ( An Abundance of Rainbows )

Mulier Fortis

A shoutout to those who woulda been contenders:
Elizabeth, who has mothballed her blog and now Facebooks instead.
Tia and Sara (CatholicMom) Hens of my aquaintance who comment but don't blog (anymore)
Raising a  glass of vodka slushie to you all!

Oops. Edited to add The Rules:

1. Post the logo on your blog and/or within the post.

2. Pass it on to 12 other bloggers.

3. Add links to these 12 bloggers within your blog.

4. Let them know they are receiving the award.

5. Share the link of the person from whom you received the award.


  1. You are so sweet. We were away on vacation - and loving it! I triple love you, Claire! xox

  2. Thank you so much, dear Clare! I have been away from the blog world for a few days, and just getting around to thanking you - a bit late. The only other name I recognize is Milehimama, so I look forward to "meeting" some of your other friends!

  3. Thanks Clare. I will to join in. Another friend nominated me too, and so I will have to get motivated to join in. I read some great blogs!
