Gosh, it's been ages since I wrote meta; lots of fun but I really floundered at times; many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wesleysgirl for holding my hand and beta reading the first draft ::hugs her::. I tore it to pieces after and added bits so any mistakes are mine.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the links post; I tried to compile a list but do you know how many fics you gave me? Heheh. LOTS. In the end I simply linked to that post and plan a positive orgy of fic reading this weekend.

The essay is here if anyone wants to read it.

Mum just emailed to say my cousin Angus Jackson has been awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for 'reconstruction efforts in Southern Iraq.'. So proud of him. His company has been out there for years helping to get clean water to the people and as you can imagine it's been very worrying for us all as it's not that safe out there. Angus is younger than me so it's hard for me to get it in my head that he's a grown man with a son of his own; I remember the little scamp I used to babysit ::g::

Seeing the odd BBC news clip of him in a bulletproof vest was very surreal.

He's in the list here

And now I'm getting a bit choked up wishing Granny and Grandad were still alive because they would've just been so proud of him.

Wow, what a day to celebrate!

Happy Birthday to four very dear people, [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_k, [livejournal.com profile] abbylee, [livejournal.com profile] firephly and [livejournal.com profile] bethynyc!

I can't imagine my f-list without you and your posts on it and I hope that you're all having the most splendiferously sparkly of days

:;much love and hugs::
