A new award to my surprise.

A few days ago i recieved another award, this time it is from Lynda.Renham , she is a published writer, likes taking photos and enjoys her blogging, and i would like to thank her very much for it.

The ‘One Lovely Blog Award’ is for Blogs that make you feel good after you have visited.

Me, my blog, what a lovely thing to say about it, makes me feel better already.

But my problem now is i enjoy so many of the blogs i’m linked to, its going to be hard to pick five out from them all.

I know a few bloggers who do not like or do not want awards, so thats them ruled out, making it a bit easier for me, and a few others already have this award, so its getting fewer to choose from.

Dark Globes Blogger Of The Year Award

dark globes Blogger of the Year Award

To my great surprise i’m one of three winners of the Blogger of the year award, i knew i was doing well but not that well.

I was up against two great adversaries who are great writers and have marvelous blogs.

The first is Lorna from Lornas voice and also Pete from Evolution of Insanity.

Apparently the voting was so tight for ten days that Darkjade felt it only right to pass out three awards in this section.

I would like to thank all the people who voted for me all through the process.

This is a new award that Darkjade started this year and i think it has been a big success that should be repeated next year.

So Lorna, Pete and Myself are Darkjade bloggers of the year for 2011, we can rest in the knowledge that we are the first to hold that title.

Two other winners were:-

Photographer of the Year La Plume Noir

Writer of the Year Michael Cargill.

Thank you all once again and have a great 2012.

Since i recieved my first Versatile Bloggers Award from Hocam  , i have also received the award from  Lornas voice , momfog , Chronicals of Illusions ,  sons o thunder  , mature student hanging in there   and
Words from my soul

At the same time i recieved both the Liebster and the Rebekah Loper Awards from Chronicals of Illusions

Thats my acceptance speech over and done with.

It can only go downhill from here 🙂

The Liebster Award

The Rebekah Loper Award

Now i have to tell everyone seven things about me.

1. I stopped working full-time at my trade, a heating engineer, 10 years ago i just got fed up with it and working.
2. Worked part-time at d.i.y. for people, started and finished when i wanted, never before 10 a.m.

3. 20 years ago i worked for an undertaker for 3 years, handling the dead from start to finish, and i must say i enjoyed my time there and we had some laughs, even at a few funerals.
4. I love being grumpy and straight the point, i believe if you have something to say, say it. If people don’t like it sobeit.
5. I also like practical jokes, our best friends got new expensive cases for a trip. While they were away i made up a letter from the case supplier inviting them to a hotel for a reception with others who bought the cases, and a prize of another set. They went because they told us about it and it was very hard to keep a straight face. They never found out it was me.
6. I have been married to my wife Gwen for 45 happy years, we know each other from the age of 17, we are each others best friend.
7. I like to have a beer or brandy or both when with friends or out to dinner, but i don’t like to drink in the house, i think it’s because my father never did. I might have a beer on a steaming hot day but we have not had any for years.
