Butterfly Award

This post has been on the drafting board for far too long. Thank you Team Effort; what a lovely gift, recieved with honour and gratitude and a dose of humility. I dont as a rule recieve very well and have a much easier time giving, so its a good thing the 'rules' require one to pass it on. Hmm, easier said than all your tag free zones preclude awards too ??? Im going to assume they do. Some blogs that i read and love and think are pretty special are team effort but she passed it to me ( might have to make you a special one of your own, your pics alone make my day), blue milk for her easily digestable and often hilarious feminist critique of what can sometimes be weighty and unweildy topics to deal with in the snippetty blog world, midwife mutiny for her tireless efforts to normalise birth and to provide women with real birth choices and information in the hostile world of overly medicalised maternal health, Jonathan at wasted food for his efforts in educating blog readers about this rather unsexy problem; wasteful practices of both the public and private worlds and for providing practical measures to reduce waste and a space to discuss it. kale for sale for being a haiku comrade and a blogger with great green cred and a writing style to match (im sorry we didnt catch up when i was in town, i got 'big blogger' shy) and im mad and i eat for a wonderful microscopic view into the world of a die hard foodie with attitude, sum of mum for her poignant writing and breathtaking insight into grief and life, inner city garden who provides perspectives on life with a cracking wit and finally mad gnome strikes again for being a supportive neighbour in the blog hood (!) and reminding me of 'what needs planting when', in this neck of the woods. If youre up for it...

I am absolutely stunned! Gobsmacked!
Thank you for considering my blog worthy of an award. Thank you, thank you. :) It's the first time this happened, so I have no clue what to do next. Let me work it out. :)

My basil is going berserk and I'm hoping you'd be willing to take a big bunch or two off my hands. Please send me an email (on my blog) if you'd like some. Don't be shy. :)

Hey, thanks for the award! How fun. And just so you know I'm terribly blogger shy. It's kind of funny.

Wow! I did not see this! Thank you! That is so sweet. I am so honoured and I also am looking forward to looking at the other blogs.

I may not get to the this yet on my blog (going away for 2 weeks soon) but it will happen!
