Dear blog friends,

Oh my word. I actually don't know what to say (and as regular readers of my blog will know, that doesn't happen often!!)

Yesterday's blog hop was just wonderful. I really enjoyed the chance to reflect on the pleasure that blogging has brought me, and to celebrate the friends I've met through blogging. I knew that it could be quite an emotional hop, so I had a box of tissues at the ready.

Turns out, one box wasn't enough!


I am touched beyond words at the lovely, kind comments you left for me on my own post. And oh, fellow bloggers, it meant so much to me that as I visited some of my very favourite blogs along the hop, I found that several of them made mention of me in terms that have touched me deeply and warmed my heart so much. The Doctor couldn't understand why I was sitting at the laptop and crying! But I know that you'll understand, dear friends. I'd just really like to say thank you to you all xx

Mel,
I know exactly what you mean! I was off on business yesterday so only got to the computer very late in the day. Started with the comments on my blog, which were sweet beyond words! Then so much fun to go visit all our friends.

I'm not a hopper by nature, but your blog is certainly exceedingly hopworthy in its companionable and forward-focussed style and theme, and I'd like to hereby award it three (the highest ranking) Golden Tissues.
