Fancy a cuppa?

Another lovely award is doing the rounds (brilliantly created by The Fixer) the "Good Chat Blog Award" (see my sidebar) and I am a humble recipient thanks to Mean Mom and Carolyn (over at Mean Mom and Laughing alone in the dark). Thanks so much for the invites - tea, cake and great company - who could resist. Guaranteed to be one of those occasions you just wouldn't want to end as we all head back to our keyboards (oh and families and real life ...) replete with cake, gossip and a feelgood aura.
I love this great female pasttime, especially the unnannounced and unexpected ones, I don't care if my house is tidy or not (and I assume all my good friends don't either). There is always tea in the pot, cookies in the jar and a sympathetic ear or a ready laugh (preferably both).
Being so far from my roots, it is one of the things I miss most. I can probably count on one hand how many times it has happened in the last three years we have been back in Canada. So in no particular order, here are some of my fellow bloggers that I would love to knock on my door some day for a cuppa along with Mean Mom and Carolyn:

A Mother's Place Is In The Wrong
Big Blue Barn West
BreezyBreakBlog
Maggie May
Menopausaloldbag
Milla
Missing You Already
Mud Walls and Beams
Omega Mum
Rotten Correspondent
Sweet Irene

Pop by anytime to pick up your award and have a cuppa.

Being new to blogging, I still can't quite come to terms with this popping in and out of peoples lives, but it's great. It sure beats Facebook any day. Congrats. Debs x and enjoy France.

I came over from Mean Mom. Lovely blog, lovely house, and The Fixer is so excited that her award has reached Canada!

I'll come back again.

Hi SITH, thank you for the award and for a lovely tea party. I've never been to virtual Canada before, and I must say, it's great. I love all your Canadian cakes and cookie! Debra xx

Thank you lovely woman. Will you be blogging from France too? I hope so because you will be sorely missed if you don't.

Bon voyage

Thank you all for dropping by for a cuppa. The benefit of a virtual tea party is, of course, no washing up! : )
