I have always enjoyed a good Christmas meal. Ok, so the buttons on my shirt may well be reaching breaking point and the only way I can move around the house is by rolling around, but I am not one to back down from the challenge. However, what makes the Christmas meal different from other “huge table-hogging” meals? Continue reading
Over the past week I have been fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of some awards from the blogger community, for which I am ever grateful. However, my blog is only as good as the bloggers who take time to visit and put comments on it.
So, I decided to create an award of my own called Blogger Appreciation Award. Now I am pretty sure this type of award does not exist, well didn’t the last time I scanned the interweb.
Ok, what is the Blogger Appreciation Award?
Blogger Appreciation Award is an award given to another blogger in appreciation of the time they’ve spent visiting your blog, writing comments and consistently responding to comments you have written on their blog.
There are only two rules that come with this award.
- Identify no more then 10 bloggers for nomination and describe their blog in just ONE word
- Copy & Paste the Award (somewhat suspect potato art) into your blog, see below.
Rule 1 – Nominated Bloggers
Rule 2 – Copy & Paste the award
Well done you all!
If I stood here and stated that today, we are not as affectionate as our parents and their generation were; would I be wrong? Would I be talking out-of-place?
This post was sparked from a debating programme I watched last night with one of the debating points being hugging. Apparently I was not aware that there is a National Hugging Day, check out the link. It’s great that we have these kind of events, but in a sense it is also exceptionally sad. Why? Well look at it this way:
Why do we have National events such as National Letter Writing Day and No Smoking Day? It is to encourage us to do something on that particular day. So isn’t it sad that we need a day that encourages us to hug each other?
Interestingly enough, there is also some science around how long the common hug lasts, which this publication claims is 3 seconds.
For me, hugging is very important and I never shy away from a tight cuddle, an affectionate cuddle. Each and every day I make sure I get my hugs in, before I leave for work and when I come home. I can tell you it makes the world of good with family and friends.
I recently read a Freshly Pressed post on WordPress which I can’t recall, that spoke of the authors reluctance to hug family and friends, the affection there was rather cold. But I guess it’s each to their own.
So tell me, when’s the last time you gave someone a true affectionate hug?
