Go ahead. Make my day!

Today, the truly wonderful Princess of the Universe has given me the "You make my day" award. Isn't that nice of her?

Before passing this on, I will share a few things that make my day.

  • People smiling. A very simple thing, but it is amazing how many people just can't seem to manage it. Sometimes I wonder if people are worried that the top of their head is going to fall off!
  • Catching up on everyone's blogs.
  • Nice things to eat. At the weekend Number 1 Son tried making American Pancakes with Maple Syrup. They were amazingly good.
  • Relaxing with my family. There is nothing like it.
  • Walking my dog. Regardless of the weather it is a great way to end the day.
  • Music. I love music. Hearing a good song or tune can keep me going all day.

Another thing that makes my day is seeing comments on my blog, whether from those that I have known for a while or from new visitors. I have met some incredible people through blogging and it still amazes me that they take the time to come here to see my latest piece of drivel.

So, I now have to pass this award on. Well I have come up with a great way of doing this. If you make a comment to this post you will have "made my day", so you get the award. How about that for cunning?

So, comment away and claim your Major Award!

Yay! Score one for John!

I love your "drivel" as you call it - but I don't think it's drivel at all!

You have managed to carve yourself a little nook in my heart John - I'll always be here to read about you and your life.

I'm with Krista...why are they called "American" pancakes??

mindy said...

You know what made my day today? Muscle relaxers. Hooray for that!

Kiki said...

I love your blog too...I love what you bring to the table, the idea that you are halfway around the globe and yet I feel like through your words we are sitting at your local shop eating bagels, with a cup of coffee and just chatting...that is magic, and that makes my day. You defintely deserved this award!

Thanks everyone, what a great way to start the day!

English pancakes are different to American pancakes. They are made with plain flour, eggs and milk - no raising agent. They are thin and flat - do you call them crepes or something like that?

Logziella said...

I think all the others said it perfect!!! I agree with everyone that you did indeed deserve this award and you have been making me smile almost daily for over a year now! :0)

Marie said...

Congrats! You really deserve it. There's always something to smile about on your blog.

amazingbrenda said...

Congratulations John! I agree with everyone else. You deserve it!

Reggie said...

I have the best recipe for pancakes. It's a lot of trouble but worth the effort.

Jen said...

You said it perfectly! It's the small things in life that make the day, isn't it?

Princess did well in giving you this award. She really, really did. Always something to smile about at "Rock Chef". Always.


P.S. You are correct, we call your pancakes, crepes. I did not know that the UK made their pancakes that way, so thanks for the bit of trivia.
