Thank You!

Last night I was sitting down, lounging if you will, and I got an email. It was from a guy named Nick. I know I don't know any Nicks so I figured it was one of those Nigerian Banking Fraud junk emails, but I decided to open it. Glad I did. Apparently Nick is an British Ex-Pat who lives in America now. He was looking for photos to use on his webpage and had stumbled upon (from Mike H's blog Post Cards from Across the Pond)(Oh and that is the name of his book too, you guys should buy it! It's on Amazon.) my photos of Cambridge and was asking permission to use them. I was stunned. First that he liked my photos and secondly that he asked permission (not everyone is that thoughtful and will steal your photos quicker than you can say lickity split). I was honored and told him that he was more than welcome to use the photos. He was also kind enough to repay me by linking from his site to my blog. You can find his site, BritPages.org here. Head over there for all things British.

I then recieve an award. I was Gobsmacked. Joanie from over at Jonie's Random Ramblings was kind enough to give me this little beauty!

!Lickety split!

Phew, I still have my photos.

!Lickety split!

Yep, still have them.

!Lickety split!

Damn.

Thanks for stopping by, I think I may have been here once before, but I will be back again now, especially as you've moved this side of the pond, and therefore should be subjected to some positive discrimination...

Funnily enough, when I was reading your post I read "Nickerian Banking Fraud". Now that made me laugh!

Yaya said...

Mariah said...

Congrats on everything! Awards are always wonderful to get and make me feel so good. :) And I've never gotten the lemonade one before!! And I feel like I've gotten a lot of lemons lately (yes, still stressing about the house! But happy that my hubby and I have decided to wait until AFTER we go to the UK in April before we put it on the market - assuming we find a place there that I will be happy in that has a school that can take care of our boys-- yes, long story).

And you pics are excellent, so I am not surprised someone of importance asked to use them, at all! Let your ego swell a bit. You deserve it!
