First of all, a big thank you and hugs to my lovely friend Violets, who awarded me with an ‘Excellent’ award. It means a lot to me, truly.
I thought I’d share with you just a little of how Violets and I first met- We became friendly on Nigella.com’s ‘Your page’ (which sadly is no more)when we became aware that we lived within about 10 miles of each other.
Violets invited me around to her house for coffee, and I must admit I was really wary of meeting up with someone that I had become friendly with over the internet. My family thought I was mad!
We got on famously though from that very first meeting. And I’m really proud to call her one of my best friends.
We have been through a lot together and whenever one of us needs a moan, or even when we don’t, we just pick up the telephone and away we go. I’ve been known to stay on the phone for over an hour, ignoring kids, husbands and meals to be made.
If there’s one thing I have taken away from Nigella’s website, is the fact that I’ve been blessed to have made wonderful, true friendships with some lovely people, some of whom I may never meet in person.
They have enriched my life, sorry this sounds so corny, but that’s how I feel!
I would like to pass the ‘E for Excellent’ award to:
Kelly-Jane who is one of the most inspirational cooks I have seen.
I would also like to pass the ‘You make my day’ award to:
Lisa who really does ‘make my day’ constantly, by being such a lovely, caring, trustworthy friend.
