Whoo-hoo, I Got An Award !!

I was hugely excited to be chosen by a wonderful blogger ... Justitia (Michelle) ... for a "Rockin' Girl Blogger" award !Here's what she said about me:

Meow's a genuinely nice girl. She's warm and welcoming and always thinking of new ideas to make blogging fun :)

Thank you so very much, Michelle, I am honoured.

Now I get to choose 5 women bloggers worthy of the "Rockin' Girl Blogger" award - so if you get tagged, place your pretty pink badge on your site and then list 5 of your favorite Rockin' Girl Bloggers.

OK, my five are ...

Greeneyes - Greeneyes is a lovely blogger, who is always full of good cheer. I always smile when I visit her blog, she is just gorgeous. I sure would love to visit her part of the world.
Nicole - Nicole is a fellow Aussie blogger, who decorates the most amazing cakes, and is such a wonderful crafty person ... you should see some of the stuff she makes. A great blog to visit.
Clare - Clare is a fun-loving British girl, who describes her world in the most interesting way. I always enjoy visiting this blog.
DayByDay - DaybyDay is a lovely person, who shares her world with her fellow bloggers. She makes the most amazing jewellery, too.
Diane - Diane is a family oriented, full of life blogger, who shares her dinners and family life with us all. Always a wonderful place to visit.

I have plenty more I could choose, but was only allowed five ... darn it !!

So, on with the post ...

Huge apologies (once again) for being AWOL this past week. It has been pretty busy, and my weekend was flat-out. I was either out, or sleeping (or wishing I was asleep!!). Saturday started out with some shopping, then off to Mum & Dad's for lunch, then more shopping, housework, then off to a party ... a fundraiser for Chicky's netball club. It was great fun, with a DJ and Karaoke. I came home exhausted, with no voice, from singing (no, I didn't do the karaoke, but who can resist singing when the music is all 70s & 80s stuff ... we danced most of the night). Afterward we went to a friends for a little while, before making it home to be around 2am. Sunday was a sleep in (I actually slept till 10am ... totally unheard of for me !!), then I headed over to the market to buy some goodies, then off to another friends place to catch up for the afternoon. Finally arrived home around 6pm, and managed to crawl onto the couch to watch TV, before going to bed quite early. I then worked Monday (gosh, I was pretty tired !!).

I have been working on the CD (well, I think there'll be at least 2 !) of blogger music. Should have it finalised this week, and will probably send them out in a couple of weeks. We are heading off on the weekend for a week at Bonnie Doon, so I may wait till after then to send them out. Thank you to everyone who gave me songs to include, and anyone who has sent me their postal address ... if anyone else wants one, just email me your address. Thanks.

Ummmm, I've got a bit of running around to do this morning, so I may just leave it here.

Have a great Tuesday everyone, and a great remainder of the week. I hope to drop by your blogs in the next 24 hours or so. I also hope to post again before heading off on the weekend.

Enjoy ...

Take care,

Of course it doesn't matter that you quit COT ! But I hope that you still come for a visit and give some news of your cat, lol !

Meow said...

Thank you everyone ... isn't it wonderful to get an award. Leaves such a nice squishy feeling inside LOL.
Really, though, thanks everyone for continuing to encourage me to blog. I still enjoy it immensely, even though I don't blog as frequently as I used to.

Take care, hugs, Meow
