And the award goes to.....

I am now recovered from jaunt in New York City. I am happy to report that I did not spend every penny to my name.  Although in Canal Street (knock-off central) we managed to purchase 15 bags between the four of us!  We had snow the first day and torrential rain the second, so we did not do as much sightseeing as we would have liked, but we did spend an entire day in Macy's.  We walked up Broadway, through Times Square and ate in some great restaurants, all in all a great (and exhausting) time was had by all and we will definitely be heading back soon.
So now I am happy to forward the awards so delightfully awarded to me this week to some of the great blogs I read daily and am so happy to be privy to due to the world wide web.
In no particular order:
Breezybreakblog - my very first blog experience was with you - I love to hear about the Dinner Ladies so hurry back soon
Sally's Chateau, another great blog that allows me to live my life vicariously in France 
Of course Menapausaloldbag - great to have you back, your writing is so clever, don't read too many how to books, you were doing just great all on your own and we are all waiting for publishing day
Big Blue Barn West - you have opened up another world to me, and I read in awe your great writing and amazing experiences
As you all know there are so many of you that I love to check in on and leave my two cents - so everyone "keep up the great work" - I really don't know what I did with a big part of my day before blogging.

Aw shucks you - you have been so kind in your comments. Thank you so much you lovely person. I love NY and Macey's store. I was enchanted with the original Miracle on 34th Street movie as a child and I went straight to Macey's when I reached NY. My husband has never been but he would like to go so we will pop over there sometime this year. Hope you are enjoying your visitors and that Branston Pickle.

Oh SITH! Thank you so much! I'm really just a normal person - really!

New York city is on my list of places to see - sigh....I should have gone when I lived over there.

travelling, but not in love said...

Spending an entire day in Macy's? Sounds like it could be heaven / could be hell. I guess it depends on what side of the bed you get out of, eh? I;d need to get out of the very very tolerant side of bed for a day in Macy's! Well done you for being brave...
