This Christmas was bound to be one which was not the most enjoyable. I am trying to plan the move of me, DOC, Bub 1 and Bub 2 interstate, My parents have just moved overseas forever and several other miscellaneous Very Bad Things have happened in the last week or so…
But then I received this :
From Gabfran at Caveat Calcei – A blog I have loved since I found it. Law and Shoes, the most unlikely mix, written by an amazing woman who is so kind, intelligent, witty and delightful, with an amazing collection of shoes which has in turn inspired me to try and wear more than Converse in the New Year (and that is a tricky feat my dear readers) (did you see what i did there – with the homophone thing?). It is a blog I was bound to love from its title – Love Latin, learnt it at school, anyone who is bold and brave enough to title their blog in it has my immediate respect. She has proven to be nothing but delightful, a wonderful conglomeration of Mum and Lawyer and Yoga teacher and Shoe addict and brilliant friend. In all honesty she has made my move interstate feel so much easier because even *if* i was never to meet her, there would be another mother in the state who I could tweet to and who would respond to such vital inquiries as – “I’m at Darlinghurst – where has good coffee- I have three children with me – help?” or “Where do I find good cheap black shoes before tonight – GAH! its 4.30”.
Plus her blog is amazingly well written and always makes me smile, even when it is not a *QLTMRB* blog (Quietly Laughing to myself while reading Blog), it is always a privilege and delight to read.
So to receive this award from someone I admire greatly meant and means so much – it has made my holiday and will sustain me for quite some time in the happier than I would otherwise be stakes.
Thank you from the depths of my heart, thank you – This means so much to me, as does your friendship and your comments.
NB – Thank you also to all my other Twitter friends -as I wrote yesterday you are so much cared for and valued by me.
Oh and to avoid the ritualistic Puppy Slaying should i not pass this on – see the next post :)
