Blogging Friends Forever


This post is long overdue, but I was on a blogging break when I was presented with this award, then away on vacation and since then, I have been unable to get online.

Tracy at Pink Purl shared the Blogging Friends Forever Award* when she posted here. I am most grateful for Tracy's friendship and believe that we will be friends forever ~ with or without our blogs ~ we may be online friends at the moment, but I believe that the day will dawn when we get to meet in person. Thanks Tracy!

Now I believe that I have to share this award with four dedicated followers of this blog and one nominee who is new to my blog and who also lives in a different part of the world.

My dedicated followers are: Heidi at Celebrate The Seasons; Isobel at The Cosy Corner; Mia at Mias Landliv; Priscilla at Priscilla's Cottage and my new nominee is Julia at Primrose Corner.

Thank you ladies for being true blogging friends and visiting regularly. I appreciate your comments and it is always nice to know that someone is actually enjoying reading my blog.

Time

After a difficult week of trying to resolve certain issues surrounding my inability to get online; I finally got my internet connection back, only to discover that I could not access my e-mail! Today, I thought that I would update my blog and I now find that I can't load photographs onto Blogger......aaaaaaggggghhhh!!!!

I may not be the most technically minded person, but I am reaching the end of my patience with all these problems.

One thing that I did notice however, is the gift of time. It really is astonishing to see just how much time there is in a day when I don't log onto the computer first thing in the morning to check my e-mail, then remain logged on until early evening in case of business correspondence or orders.

It is certainly making me rethink the time I spend sitting in front of this machine. I always thought that life was simpler when I didn't use all this technology. I must be getting old...
