Me? A Blog Award? Never!!

I've been neglecting my blog over the last day or two.  Life rudely gets in the way sometimes, and rarely apologizes for doing so.  (Well...actually it's the new season of Apprentice and Grey's Anatomy that's been getting in the way, but "life" sounds much more serious and important.)

So imagine my surprise when I logged on today to find that I had won this!

It was bestowed on me by the exceptionally talented writer of The Blogger Formerly Known As... whose blog I read religiously.  Check it out if you get the chance - it's wonderful!

(When I told Stinky "She Who Shall Not be Named" about my award, she felt I didn't deserve it, because most of my posts are "just embarrassing."  That's 12 year olds for you...  She's worried that one of her friends will read it and figure out that I'm her mother.  God forbid anyone ever find out we share the same gene pool...I'd have to homeschool her for the next six years.  Oh, and in case you're wondering, the name change was at her request.)

Anyway, I'm not going to let anyone, adolescent or otherwise, rain on my parade  So thank you Blogger Formerly Known As... for thinking of me.  Now, as is tradition, it's my turn to give the One Lovely Blog Award to some of my favourite blogs.  Here goes...
Congratulations to everyone!  Please pass the award on to other deserving blogs. 

As for me, I'm going to go and bask in the glory of my first award since I came third in an egg and spoon race in Grade Two. 

Until next time,


  1. Lovely blog - yes you do deserve an award! I've just happened to meander over from Klahanie's blog and your post on typo's made me smile, thanks.

  2. Oh wow, how cool. Thank you so much for thinking of my blog. That was very kind of you.

    And trust me, she who will not be named will become much more willing to endure embarassment you when college tuition enters the equasion!

  3. Congratulations on your well deserved award, and thank you so much for mine!

    I'm very flattered, thank you. Will be sure to pass it on.

  4. Omawarisan and Mid 30's - you two really do deserve awards - your blogs always make me smile! And thank you for meandering over Joanne!!

    Tracey :)

  5. Hi Tracey. My comment was going to be almost exactly the same as Joanne's, above, including the reference to the typos post. Instead I'll say congratulations on this well deserved recognition!

  6. Thank you very much Bazza. I'm super pleased, and it's given me a bit of a boost to keep writing!

  7. Hey Tracey,
    You are a truly worthy recipient of the much coveted 'One Lovely Blog Award'. Tracey, you do a fantastically, wonderfully, awesome blog. I will make sure nobody tries to sit in your chair at the 'Blogger Academy Awards'.
    Thank you for bestowing this award upon me. I am going to check out those you have included on your list. I've no doubt they are super duper bloggers. Did I tell you that I've never lost an egg and spoon race? Nah nah...
    Have a great weekend and stay warm :-)

  8. You're very welcome, and a worthy award recipient too I might add. As for the egg and spoon race, it has been my one and only athletic forte...yet I still only placed third (sniffle sniffle).
    Have a great weekend!

  9. congratulations to YOU on the much deserved award!

    and thank you so much for passing this award on to me!!!
