Well, Fair Dinkam

Well I am jumping for Joy because

I won a blog prize over at by Stephen Tremp at Breakthrough Blogs

ho is author of the 'Near Future' SciFi Thriller Breakthrough
and a copy of which he has awarded me.
I squealed so loudly that my hubby dropped everything to come and see (Hubby's been on call over the past few days sorting out the problems of UK railways in the snow) Thank you sooo much. I am dee-lighted! I can't wait for it to drop through my letter box.

And Ellie awarded me: BWS tips button
HUGE Thank yous!

By accepting the award I need to tell you what fair dinkum means to me:
While I believe the award stands for Friendship
I guess I've always thought Fair Dinkum meant:
'You've got a point there, I can't argue with that, that's fine by me'.
Passing on the award to other deserving bloggers, I nominate:
Michael @ In Time
Carolyn @ Serendipity


  1. Eeeek! Thank you, thank you so much!
