One Lovely Blog Award

Today is a pretty big day.  My little brother is graduating from high school! I am so excited for him and I can't believe he is all grown up and going off to college! It just makes me feel super old! I wish him the best of luck with whatever he does and wherever he goes.  I hope that he has great experiences in college and that he makes great friends! I have had an amazing college experience so far and I hope that he does as well.
Me and my "not-so-little-anymore" brother...posing like champs

    I am sorry that I am not posting so much or checking out your recipes as often as I would like to. I am up to my ears in the post production of two, one hour, programmes for the Horse and Country channel here in the UK. I will not be about for about a month at least. :-( I have a couple of posts in hand that Mark, my husband, will post for me when he can get around to it. He's over in Glasgow at the moment working on the BBC's antiques road trip prog. Oh woe is me! I cannot use him as my editor!!! Not to worry I have two very good replacements (not quite as good as him though :-( ) Keep up the good work and I will be back soon. I will also do the awards then as well. :-)

    1. Oh, my! That sounds like a lot. I can't wait to see more new recipes from you, but I understand that you are busy. (Believe me, I understand not having any time to cook let alone blog when I am at college).

  7. thank you so much for the award, we are so honored! and congrats to your brother for his graduation!

  8. Congrats on the award & to your brother! :-)

    1. Thank you so much! We are all so proud of him!
