This afternoon I took Ben to The Hobbit, we are both fans of Lord of the Rings and he did ask before Christmas and I promised I would take, so we went to see that, whilst Victoria took Eve to see Rise of the Guardians instead, there was no way Eve would sit through three hours of the Hobbit.
Needless to say Ben loved it, now I’m having to relive it all night, as he recites all his favourite bits. It maybe doesn’t truly follow the book, some bits added and others taken out, but whether you are a fan or not, it is still worth seeing.
Over the last couple of days I’ve received another couple of Awards, firstly a second star for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award from Conralin at Heaven On Earth, I am as always very grateful. I made a decision to participate in giving and receiving awards, but in doing so decided that I would only award nominations once, so having previously handed out stars for this award, I will refrain from doing so again.
The second award is slightly different, it is the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, which has been gratefully awarded to me by Marsha at Streaming Thoughts. This one differs in that it is award to those who follow your blog and like or comment, rather than awarding it for the content of their blog.
The Rules of the award are as follows:
(i) Don’t forget to thank the nominator and link back to their site as well;
(ii) Display the award logo on your blog;
(iii) Nominate no more than fourteen readers of your blog you appreciate and leave a comment on their blogs to let them know about the award;
(iv) Finish this sentence: “A great reader is…”
My finished sentence:
A great reader is always ready to offer a simple like (or appreciate) through all my highs, my lows, my pain, my pleasure, my ramblings and everything else, staying with me all the way through my journey.
I’ve chosen ten recipients for the award, they may not comment often, but they read and like my posts on a regular basis, for which I am so grateful.
Thank you all, you’ve been there patiently.
You’ve been there patiently
Trust is a river
You move right through me
And I am waking
You have shown me truth through trust
