Dauphy: Great idea!
Hobbo: It was your idea!
Dauphy: I know. Can I have my tea now?

Honourable Order of Best Blog Owners
This is the award which I launched last month. It goes to the owner of the blog who has kept me amused and entertained over the previous few weeks. It doesn’t involve the winner in doing anything, or answering daft questions. It’s just my way of saying a little thank you for putting a smile on my face, and keeping your blog interesting.
The winner of the inaugural award was Mr Bump. This month, the winner is spwilcen. Visit their blog at https://spwilcenwrites.com/
He claims to be a rambling old man (who isn’t), but his posts will amuse you.

Inspired by, and in honour of my deceased four legged pal Dauphy, I am launching a new award today. The Hobbo award celebrates my first 100 followers. I will be presenting it on a monthly basis to the owner of the blog who has kept me the most amused and entertained.
This award does not involve the winner in having to do anything, answer daft questions or promote anything. It is just my small way of saying thank you for keeping me amused for the past month.
The winner of the first award (and therefore the only current holder of it) goes to (drum roll)……………….. Mr Bump UK
CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU, MR BUMP
