I enjoy all the blogs I read, and all of them are invariably written by creative, vibrant, colourful individuals, even that strange, odd little blog that makes me laugh in a most unpleasant fashion at celebrities' misfortunes. There is however, one blog that really created a change in the way I live, and that's Phantom's blog. Well, not really his blog, really it's one of the blogs on his blog roll --> Eggs, bacon, chips and beans. Because until I checked out Phantom's blog roll, and found Russell Davies' great blog, I wouldn't have dreamed of entering a greasy spoon, certainly not actually eat in one. And now, whenever I'm in Nottingham early enough for brekkie, I call into the The Cosy Teapot, 101 Carrington Street, Nottingham, for a plate of eggs, bacon, chips and beans. The Cosy Teapot; the only place in the world where I have eaten chips for breakfast. Now that's creative blogging.

It Was Chinese New Year On Monday, Phantom
Finally. Three months of silence, in the middle of which Fiona lands me with a furious dilemma. Of course, April is really to blame for all this. Yes, April, you are to blame. If I hadn't started enabling comments, at your suggestion, I probably wouldn't have had Fiona awarding me a very lovely blog award last year. I haven't ignored it, Fiona. Quite the opposite, actually. Who the hell do I pass it on to?
