Star Blogger- YAY!

MANY THANKS to Dom from Writes of Passage
for this very special award.
I am delighted and honoured.

Here are the "rules"
1) Link back to the person who gave you the award and share something about them.
2) Nominate a new recipient and tell them how special their blog is to have been singled out for this exclusive award
3) Share ONE thing that makes you laugh,

Matt Harvey's The Hug

ONE favourite thing
You all know it's Costa Coffee

and ONE place you would like to visit.
New Zealand

So who shall I pass this award on to?

While I would say that Dom is also very much a Star Blogger for the same reasons he has nominated me,
I am going to pass this award on to Ellie Garratt  because Ellie puts a great deal of thought and time into commenting on other people's blogs and participating in Blog fests. Her posts are creative and entertaining, with great graphics and well laid out. That is why Ellie is a Star Blogger


I would also like to thank Lady Jai and Michelle Teacress for awarding me the Stylish Blogger award

Once again I am honoured and delighted.

I would like to award this to OLD KITTY whose blog is full of warmth and humour and integrity. Oops I have already given her this award, but I didn't see it on her blog.
So I'll also pass it on to Nahno Mclein

Ok so 7 more things about me:
1. I love harp music and wish I could play.
2. I read The Millstone by Margaret Drabble in 4 hours when I was 17yrs old. I haven't read a book that quickly before or since.

3. Some of my fav authors are Andrea Levy, Anita Shreve and Lori Lansens.

4. I've had a nasty cold since the early hours of Saturday morning. My nose blocked completely and as I lay trying to breathe it popped and squelched like a squedgee mop in very soapy water.

5. My cat who we've only had since Oct 2009 had his 3rd lot of stitches yesterday for an injury. We hope this accident proneness does not continue!

6. I love classical music especially Bach, Mozart and Baroque and my fav pop group is Queen.

7. I am old enough to remember when a packet of crisps cost only pence!

Sorry off to nurse my cold again now.


  1. If anyone is a Star Blogger, it's you Madeleine. Congratulations on the awards and thank you passing one on to me. I'm blushing with all the lovely things you said about me.

    2 1/2p for crisps?! I remember getting the bus to Plymouth Hoe for 13p. LOL. Those were the says.

  2. Sorry you're feeling bad, Madeleine. Stay under the covers and keep hydrated. You need to rest.

  3. Congrats on the awards! I love classical music and Queen too. :) Hope you feel better!

  4. Hope you're feeling better. And I'm sorry to say that I awarded you with another blog award (see my blog for details), but really, you don't have to play :-).

  5. Many congratulations, Madeleine, so well deserved. Also to Ellie, who is a star indeed. It was meeting her at a NaNoWriMo meet up that started me blogging in the first place!

    Sending healing thoughts to you and your cat!

  6. Sorry you're crook Madeleine, but well done on the award - very well deserved. Great learning 7 things about you - take care and get well soon :-)
    All best

  7. Congrats on the awards (always deserved!) And thanks for passing one along to me! :)

    Hope you're feeling better. I'm home sick today too...

  8. Congrats on your awards. I've never seen the Star Blogger one before; what a great design! Congrats to those to whom you passed the awards also. Hope you shake your cold soon! :)

  9. Congratulations on your awards and feel better soon!!
