I always like looking at my photos after a return from a holiday; they always evoke feelings of well being and have been an antidote to coming home where it has done little more than be grey and wet which has been fitting for the sombre mood of grief that envelopes my family but does little to lift the spirit.
One thing that has been a lift is that Shephard has awarded me for the 'Nice Matters' award.
I am extremely flattered as this award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Coming from Shephard this is indeed a great compliment and I do always try to be nice though as I think there is enough unpleasantness in the world as there is. My grand mother always said, if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all.
Soooo, I will pass the award onto Kross Eyed Kitty, Melody, RS of Musings from the Hinterland, Sarch, CrazieQueen, Breadbox and Rashbre and especially Mar of Maremagnum. (I know that is one more but I really must bend the rules for the wonderful Mar, who I thought had already been awarded this award but hadn't). Each one of these people has been a great blog friend to me in some way and have especially offered their support at times when I needed it. In addition, the blogosphere is a better place for their inhabiting it. There are many more of you that I would like to give this to. I have not overlooked you but I am certain that you have or will receive this award soon. The blogosphere is a better place for you being here too in my opinion or you wouldn't be on my side bar.
Vienna photos to come soon!
