Potty Mummy really is a super Chum! I am one of her biggest fans, I have to say, she is hilarious, so I'm jolly chuffed at this award. I won't gush anymore because my keyboard will short-out on me.

Have I mentioned I've been given an award? It's made this week a whole lot better than last. I couldn't bring myself to Blog much at all last week, I felt far too miserable and wasn't about to inflict it on the Blogosphere and frighten off all those people who read my Blog.
I love reading Blogs, I love reading the comments, often laughing out loud and making my family shout "what?, what is it that's funny?". I feel I have built a relationship with people I have never met, probably never will and I (think) I have made friends who judge me on the nonsense I spout, not on the car I drive or the way I speak. My opinionated rhetoric and snobbishness, love of wine and often use of bad language don't alienate me from these ladies. I have found a place I can be myself, totally at ease (and also never worry if my bum looks big). I love the fact that we all seem to be from ranging socio-economic circles and totally different lifestyles, but still share a fantastic sense of humour and banter. Insults often fly between us and butt in to each others comments boxes and I laugh and smile at all the funny things that are said.
I find myself wondering what some of you are up to if I haven't heard from you for a while. Blogging is socialising with people you want to bother with, I don't have to be on time, I can be wearing Prada or Pyjamas, it's not what matters. I love it.
Did I mention I'd got an award?

...and well deserved it is. Witterer. (Just in case you were missing the insults)

You do deserve the award and I agree with everything else, every last word you wrote today. x

Actually...I was going to judge you on the car you drove, but then my car was put out of commission and now I drive a really big Chevy so I can't say anything at all. Then I was going to judge you on the way you spoke, but realized I've never heard you speak and thought about how awful I speak at times (I were an English major in college...er make that a jornalesm major) so I chose to not judge you on any of these points. Hmmm..I guess I'll just like you then because I think who you really are comes out in your writing and who you are is pretty darn cool.

Is it possible to live on a farm and be divorced from the farming? Do tell how you manage that. Don't even help at lambing time? And congrats on the award.

Omega Mum said...

So, is there something about an award? Haven't quite got the gist. PS very well done. Your blog really has gone from strength to strength.

Iota said...

Congrats on the award.

You've said it all, and very well expressed too. I do find it odd how well you feel you can know someone from what amounts to no more than short written exchanges with them. (or long written exchanges, depending on the witter level).

Your bum doesn't look big in those pyjamas, by the way.

Thank you Potty Mummy!

Thank you She's like the Wind, great minds think alike.

Jonny's Mommy, you've genuinely brought a tear to my eye, Thanks!

No Mopsy, I don't help at lambing time. I might break a nail or something horrific like that.

Thanks Omega Mum, a compliment from one I admire!

Thanks Iota, I knew you'd be honest with me!

It is a strange thing, this blogging, isn't it? I have met up with some of the bloggers and it is great with a really strange combination of feeling these are total strangers and people you know. I would recommend it.
Congrats on the award,btw!

Great minds think alike, fools seldom differ!!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Well done on the award. I agree completely about making friends with people who you don't meet. I will almost go so far as to say that some of the friends are the best you will get. They don't answer back, don't pull their face and always write.

I heard you got an award, am I right?! I didn't think you used bad language, I'm always trying to mind my potty mouth (no offence PottyM) when I'm over here!
I'm wearing baggy red sweat trousers and a very badly clashing green t-short topped off with a pink/white/lilac Mexx cardigan...are you still my friend?! (husband away again)
Did you get an award?
I meant to write

Pig in the Kitchen said...

i forgot to add that i have some toothpaste smeared on a spot on my chin; my friend told me that will work. I am sex on legs.

oh, i mentioned sex.

potty mouth.

Frog in the Field said...

Thanks Elizabeth M.

She's like the Wind - pffhh! speak for yourself!

Good point Crystal, they do always write back, it makes me feel wanted (sad, but true)

Pig, clearly you are delusional again, if I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times, stop making suggestive comments when your husband's away, you're just not my type. While your fashion sense is clearly marvellous, the toothpaste just doesn't do it for me, sorry!

Frog, have you checked out OM's blog recently? Think it could be worth your while...
