A very happy Monday to everyone! I am very pleased indeed to be able to show off that I have made friends on WordPress! I find making friends to be a tricky business (especially in a foreign country) and I am always delighted when someone wants to be friends with me. Both Becca of From my Lofty Hill and Nash from Open Source have nominated me for this award. I personally think that the real award is the friendship itself, after spending time chatting via blog posts, but it is so lovely to have a written acknowledgement all the same!
I loved having a pen friend when I was young and kept in touch, via letters and sleep-overs, with a girl whom I met on holiday when I was around nine or ten years old. We wrote to each other for several years and often found that our annual Summer holidays, spent at a tiny caravan site in North Wales for seaside adventures along the Llyn Peninsula, overlapped. I am very pleased indeed to have been able to adapt the ‘pen friend’ formula to a blogging community. I am very much looking forward to strengthening the friendships that I have made already and to forging new ones (hopefully) as the weeks and months go by.

I would also like to give an anonymous shout out to my wonderful mum, who started a blog herself just to be able to comment on my posts and show her support for my latest endeavour. Isn’t that so completely lovely of her? I won’t overwhelm her with a link as she doesn’t yet know how to navigate WordPress properly.
