A Saturday Surprise

What a lovely surprise we had this morning to find that Carol at the Writer's Porch had given our blog this fabulous award—our first! It means a lot to know she enjoys our lighthearted journal and journeys back to Blighty as much as we enjoy stretching out on her porch at the end of a day of traveling! Visit Carol at http://thewritersporch.blogspot.com and see what we mean.

Now, apparently, the award has a few strings attached, and here they are:
  • You must pass it on to 5 other Fabulous bloggers in a post.
  • You must include the person who gave the award to you and a link back to their blog.
  • You must list 5 of your Fabulous Addictions in the post.
  • You must copy and post these rules in the post.
So here are 5 of my Fabulous Addictions: Travel, writing, working from home, my wonderful family, and Kate's softball games (a new discovery for me!).
And here are 5 Fabulous bloggers you should all visit:
  • Willow at http://willowmanor.blogspot.com because there's always something new and different waiting there (plus, we covet your stone house!);
  • Weenie Elise at http://odetomrsbeeton.blogspot.com for your valiant efforts to restore Britain's culinary heritage;
  • Trixie at http://plaidraincoat.blogspot.com because we so enjoy following your triumphs and travails;
  • Melissa at http://smittenbybritain.com because your blog is always so cheerful (plus, you always have something nice to say about England!);
  • Victoria at http://vintagetea.blogspot.com -- to an Essex lass from an old Essex boy; and
  • Amy at amysaysmeh.blogspot.com because we just love your sense of humor.
Oops, that's six! Oh well, there it is. We love your blogs! (Right click the Award and save to your computer and post it on your blog.)

Thanks again, Carol! We'll keep an eye out for you on the porch--maybe we'll spot Hemingway!
