The Thoughts of Chairman MOTH

Firstly a warm thank you to Vicki A. over at French Essence. The morning after the Academy Awards last month, Vicki graciously passed on the following awards to a number of us, although I still think she made a typo including The Hedge in her list. Looking at the parade of notables she included, I feel like the gatecrasher at a posh Hotel, who's accidentally hurtled through the doors of a beautiful & elegant private party while looking for the Ladies Loo. With drink in hand & a look of sheer desperation, she knows immediately this is not where she should be!

Vicki's award speech went as follows: 'As great scribblers, generous people and highly entertaining and truly fabulous bloggers I offer you all of these awards.'

Thanks again Vicki & in my acceptance speech to the French Essence Academy, I have to of course thank my partner-in-renovating MOTH. While Greg at Stirling Hardware still lets him buy power tools, his eyes are still sharp enough to misread the architects plans & dyspraxia remains his constant companion - The Laurel Hedge will be viable!

What a fabulous Quadrella of Awards - thanks Vicki for letting me escape Renovation Central for a few moments each day over at the wonderfully stylish French Essence - it's the best diversional therapy session I could ever ask for!

Secondly, I'd like to share a deep & serious insight on blogging recently given to me by that most famous of non-bloggers himself Chairman MOTH.

' A blog is like one of those light, airy, souffle, spongey cake things Millie - it can start off really good, but if you're not careful, it can end up a real mess.'

Words we could all live by - most of all me!


  1. Millie~ Your man is a treasure. Mine actually started reading FROM THE HOUSE OF EDWARD. However, not when I'm around. These guys! I do love their soft side.

  2. I admire your talent with words and your sense of humor.

  3. Congratulations on all your awards Millie, much deserved, your blog is wonderful.

    I love the words from your Chairman Moth ~ so true and we could all live by them.


  4. Ahh, such wise words spoken by Chairman MOTH! Congratulations on the blog awards - I can't think of a more worthy recipient. (Vicki Archer definitely knows what she's on about!!).

  5. I love MOTH (not in that way!). What a perfect man for such a wonderful lady.

    Have a happy Thursday my friend!

  6. Well done you - the most worthy award winner imaginable. Does MOTH have any other pearls he wishes to impart - can't wait for his future musings!

  7. Ahh...Millie, I don't think Vicki made a typo...I'm always interested in what you are up to at The Laurel Hedge...especially this time the wise words of MOTH. Congratulations on the Awards, they are well deserved...Dzintra

  8. Wise man that MOTH of yours. Thanks for your sweet words Millie, xv.

  9. Oh MOTH, you wise, wise man. Congrats on your awards Millie. You so deserve them. I am sure you're the first stop for everyone on their morning blog stroll. You're certainly mine! A-M xx

  10. I just love ya!
    Youve got the best insight! I am going to keep the boys together in the same bedroom, there were just too many positives to move them around and upset the whole coastal nest, to boot
    thanks for being you, dear girl!
    from the the beach!


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
