Ho ho! My head is throbbing with the sort of enlargement normally reserved for another more hidden part of my anatomy. I have won a blogging award thanks to Sir Rob Clack of "Dem Bones Dem Bones". This is what he wrote in his simple citation:-

"Yorkshire Pud for the way he talks so unpretentiously and openly about his own life..."

I feel genuinely honoured to receive this recognition. That word "unpretentiously" means a lot to me because that is how I do attempt to share aspects of my life and thoughts - not boasting, not self-pitying, trying to get across to other people who are mostly like me - flawed, filled with mixed bags of memories, dreams achieved and dreams thwarted, vulnerable, inconsistent, remembering, wishing, laughing, surviving... As Esther Rantzen might have said - "That's Life!"... Thanks Rob! And eat your heart out Brad The Gorilla!

  1. The lack of comments suggests to me that there are a lot of green-seething bloggers out there - jealous of my award! My messge is - Try harder suckers!

  2. Congratulations Sir, I guess you will now be " Too Good " to hang around with the likes of us regular bloggers !

  3. This is an outrage! Perhaps "E for Eels (the Jellied Kind)" or "E for Earwax" would be more appropriate, Sir! And far be it for me to seethe with jealousy. I seethe with righteous indignation over such an upset of this kind. I am postively E for Ebullient.

  4. Ooh congrats Mr unpretentuous Pudding! ;)

  5. Well, congratulations! Now you will really have to tell us your name.

  6. Hmmm, you were doing really well, coming across as a Nice Person till you spoiled it with your dig at poor Brad the Gorilla. And 'try harder suckers!' - well now you've really shown your true colours!
    Brad, care to join me in a petition to cancel the award to YP?
    Let us right this outrage!!
