Cheers mate – your blog is both a delight and an education – keep up the good work!
Thanks, both of you!
Roy is an excellent name for a future dog! And octopuses (octopi?) are FASCINATING.
Yes they are! I don’t know why people refer to someone as ‘a chameleon’ when talking about their adaptability/camouflage abilities. I’m going to call them ‘an octopus’ instead.
I have a little confession to make mate – I thought about the Award and realised the maths was literally astronomical – so I didn’t continue the nominations. Below is the post I wrote about it – I still am very grateful for the mention and would nominate you for similar. However read this and see what you think…
I’ve commented on your post with my thoughts!
Yeah, I totally don’t think of it as an actual “award” – more as a chance to get people who read my blog to look at other blogs I think are awesome. Also a chance to overshare abut personal stuff, which I always jump at!
Cool, so why not just say that instead of calling it an award?
I’ve never seen the word ‘overshare’ before – how does it differ from ‘share’?
I dunno, I didn’t invent it. It’s just something that someone passed along to me, and it seemed polite to go along with it.
The Oxford dictionary defines overshare as “to reveal an inappropriate amount of detail about one’s personal life”. I am usually joking when I use the term, because I am a feelings machine who writes about her feelings a lot, so sometimes I worry that I am sharing too much.
Bellejar – I enjoyed your oversharing! But if I enjoyed it, does that stop it from being ‘oversharing’, and make it just ‘sharing’? Conundrum! =P
Maybe! I hope that’s how it works 🙂
thank you! x
