  15. Darren, you sir are a very prolific writer. Although I produce nowhere near the volume of writing you do (I once wrote a sentence), I am nevertheless in your debt for taking time to follow my blog. I realize the check I sent you is probably not what you are used to, but please consider it only a down payment. Seriously Darren, I appreciate your following me over at my Attic. I hope I always leave you laughing. :O)

    Hi dear,,,I nominated you for The Premio Dardos Award,,if you haven’t already participated and are interested, please visit https://breakdownchick.wordpress.com/2015/07/22/the-premio-dardos-award/

    1. I don’t know what to say… Thankyou, I’m so honoured.

      I’ll gladly take part but it will be a couple of days before it appears on my blog as, for me, to go through and select 15 other bloggers will be a challenge.

      I have COPD and a few other conditions which mean my windows of available energy and, more importantly, focus are limited as each day unfolds.

      Nevertheless, I will do my best.

      Thankyou again!

    1. Thanks so much, Susan, for nominating me, I really do appreciate the sentiment but as of 23rd July 2015 I decided that I can no longer accept them because I simply don’t have the time to fully reciprocate which would be unfair on everybody else.

      I hope you understand.

      Many, many thanks, Susan.
