An Award!

How extremely excited I am today. An award! Haven't won anything since I won a packet of Jelly at the Over 60's Club in Great Tey, Essex in 1968.
A massive thank you to Hadriana AND to Exmoorjane who have both given me the same award. How enormously kind of you. Am thrilled to bits.
Have spent some time being unsuccessful in getting the award onto my blog.
Cut, paste.
Copy, paste.
Copy, cut, paste.
Copy award onto document. Paste onto Post. Nope.
Cut award onto document. Paste onto Post. Nope.
Cut and copy award onto document. Copy onto Post. Nope.
Paste onto copy and cut on the post. Nope.
Taste and sloppy and piste on the post. Pope.
So, as thrilled as I am to have award, am now Confused and Fed Up. So am going to get up and leave computer as have Very Little Patience left.
Will go shopping. And will hope that some Angel of Blog will come to my aid and tell me, in words of one syllable, how a Blogger of Very Little Brain like me can collect my Award. And I will thank that Angel profusely. And at length.
Right. Going. Have to buy string, flute music book for daughter, and three birthday presents for children's friends. Oh, and tabasco sauce. Ours has disappeared. Vamooshed. Along with the DVD of The Holiday. Do you think they went off together?
See you later.

A justly earned award!

As for getting an award for your mantlepiece, you need to right click on the image and "save picture as" to save it onto your laptop. Then you can upload it into your blog from there - go to 'Customise' then 'Layout' then 'Add Page Element' and choose 'Picture'. Does that make any sense?

Vodka Mom said...

I just drag it over to my desktop, and then "add a gadget" and use the picture one, and choose it.

Good luck! (I love this bloggyland!) YOu totally deserve an award! COme on over and take one!!!

Suburbia said...

Copy into 'my pictures' folder on your computer then upload it from there using the 'add picture' gadget for your sidebare. Or from my pics onto your new post via the normal way on the tool bar.

(Does that all read as complete rubbish?!! Well I did try to help!)

Kitty said...

I do the same as Mud in the City - right click on the picture, choose the 'save as' option to save it to my hard drive, then add it to a blog post or sidebar the way you would with any other picture from your poota.

Congratulations on your award - I'm sure it'll be the first of many.

Mud in the city, Vodka mom, suburbia and Kitty.
What brilliant bloggy bloggers you all are to help me get that award up on the screen!!
You should have heard the WHOOP as I did it. Cat jumped off the desk and has walked off in a huff.
Will now populate blog with all types of nonsense just because I Can.
Thanks guys. Am thrilled to bits.

My God! If you were in the Over
60's club in 1968 how old are you now?

Husband is a computer hater. The time wasted on nuturing PC's little ailments can be limitless! They were supposed to create the paperless office - Husband says they are as useless as a paperless loo!

The Dotterel said...

Well done! and by the time I got here, everything was up and running.

Ladybird World Mother said...

Troy - am 163 and looking very good on it. I think its the bloody mary every morning.
Lindsay - paperless loo!! love it. Too true... gosh, there's a poem there somewhere.
The Dotterel - thank you!! Am extremely proud of ability to collect awards. Will add it to CV.
Thanks for coming to the rescue. What kind blogger mates I have!
