Awarded thrice!

Imagine my delight when I returned home from my holiday, to see that I had been nominated three times for this award! How special is that!
I have been honoured by Eileen , Rica , and Julie .

The sentiment behind this award is truly amazing.

This is it:

This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind blogger's aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight blogger's who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.What a wonderful sentiment and an elegant award.

Now I have to pass it on to 8 people, so difficult with all the friends I've made out there. So I'm just going to nominate Norma , my sister from SBS22, who is so diligent in participating in our group activities and for the rest, if you haven't yet received this award, consider it yours!

Long time, no blog!

We have just returned from a 2 week cruise in the Caribbean aboard the P&O ship Ventura. It was amazing!
This was a special Anniversary cruise apparently, although I hadn't realised this until we were actually there. We will be celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary on December 15th and this entitled us to have the special treatment! This included flowers, on-board credit, a silver photograph frame and 8x10 photo, plus the above... an invitation to the Commodore's cocktail party!
I'm now busily trying to catch up with finishing my Christmas cards and getting them posted, no small task!
If anyone is considering a cruise in the Caribbean... do it, it is simply fabulous!
