Thank you, that’s sweet and lovely of you!

I enjoyed learning more about you — cool that you have an aunt that close to you in age! I’m going to cheat a little and answer the questions here in my comment.

Seven things: 1. I’ve just become hooked on Downton Abbey. 2. I have a toy otter on one of my bookshelves. 3. I used to own 3 or 4 copies of the books “Karen” and “With Love from Karen” by Marie Killilea. 4. I have photos of London taken by a Hungarian hanging on my walls. 5. I love dragonflies. 6. I also love penguins. 7. I have sung in at least 14 choirs.

Sweets: (I can’t eat them any more, but if I could, this is how I would answer.) 1. Cake. 2. Chocolate. 3. Ginger chocolates. 4. When I see new flavors of things, and can’t try them. 5. Sweetie.

Thanks again!

Thanks for telling me all those wonderful things about you. Downton Abbey is so good isn’t it. I am so sorry that you can’t eat sweets anymore.

Many congratulations on your awards Darlene, and thank you very much for the nomination! I was most amused to find that you dress up as Jane Austen for Halloween parties, I wonder what she would make of that. 🙂

I think she would be Ok with it. I added another post with me in costume. I hope many people check out your wionderful blog.

I think she would, too, I imagine she had quite a sense of humour. I’m popping off to look at your costume now…

Thankyou so much Darlene for the lovely awards. I’m not much good about listing things about myself, but I can always just use the sweet list… Now to think who to pass the award on to…mmm…

You’re so welcome. The sweet award is a good one and fun too.

Congratulations on your blog awards, Darlene–so deserved!

Home Sweet Home! You get back and there is a big surprise waiting, wonderful. Congratulations!
Blessings ~ Maxi

Congratulations on your award!! Very deserved. We always love seeing you online. Thanks for the nomination – it means a lot to those of us who put our writing out in cyberspace not knowing if it will be read. Thank you for reading!

Thanks. I enjoy your snippets of inspiration. They often show up at just the right time too.

Many congratulations on your awards Darlene, it was lovely finding out a little more about you.

Congratulations Darlene – loved your random facts – especially the one about adding three things to the list!

Congratulations! Glad you are back 🙂
