...yes, it is my birthday today. I wasn't going to mention it but Merle has spread the word on her blog, as I discovered in some comments on my last post. To celebrate we're going out tonight to see an Argentine tango group perform at the state theatre. I'm really looking forward to that!
Merle has also awarded me the Nice Matters Award (and coincidentally so did Kali) - that plus having a birthday (62 if you must know) is making this a bumper week for me.
I'm not sure what traits I exhibit that entitle me to the award, but in Merle's case, it might be because I barrack for the same footy team that she does. Go Blues!
Now here comes the difficult part: I have to nominate 7 (according to Kali) or 8 (according to Merle) people for the award. I've never come across a NOT nice person in Bloggerland, and most of the people who immediately spring to mind have already got the award. So I am going to do something totally different and nominate two (yes, only two) bloggers. These two have opted out of blogging this year and I dearly miss reading their posts . This is not meant to put pressure on them to start blogging again, but just to let them know (I'll email them) that their time in Bloggerland did leave a legacy. They both live in Queensland and one day I hope to meet them face to face. They are
