Thank you, and Wow!

I don't compete for many blog awards, partly out of laziness and, I'm sure any shrink would tell you, partly out of fear of failing. (Which seems ridiculous since I have put myself out there in published format, laid bare to the slings and arrows of Amazon reviewers.)

Anyway, I won a bronze award for expats in the USA blogging, which is no mean feat given how many of us there are. (See, I can give myself a pat on the back from time to time.)

Every time I begin to wonder if the whole expat blogging/writing field has become over-crowded and a little "old", I find new material to read. The winners and other entrants to this years Expats Blog awards are really worth taking a look at.

You can find the winners from many countries over at the Expats Blog.
And of course, a huge thank you to the many friends who wrote such lovely things about my blog. I blushed!

AND - my cup runneth over. I've just won a random drawing over at the brilliant Knackered Mother's Wine Club. Thank you, thank you. 


  1. Congratulations! Well deserved (though of course I REALLY believe you deserved the gold, but bronze is still great!). Any chance you could pop on over to the page for Russia and leave a nice comment about me, whilst you're on your winner's high? ;)

  2. But of course, (said with Russian accent.)

  3. Congrats! (but just so you know; in MY book you rated a gold!)

  5. I just hope you appreciate that Potty Mummy, Knackered Mother and I did not scoff the chocolates and wine while you were still sleeping...
