More irresistible stuff

You recognise the picture already!

Many thanks to

for my Fair Dinkum award!

Having received the highest accolade possible (to an Australian) I can now bask in the appreciation!

I think it would only be fair to have to do a bit of work for this award, so here are three things that are Fair Dinkum in my life

  • Faith - I cannot think of anything more real or more defining of true character
  • Family - The love and support of my family are very precious to me - I hope they keep me real!
  • Fiction - Yes, I know it's a contradiction in terms - how can fiction be real / genuine? It is through fiction that the real me is finally emerging!

I would like to award the L'Aussie Fair Dinkum award to:

Elaine AM Smith at Wordsmithing for a really interesting series of articles about writing, and for having a really great blog

Clarissa Draper at Listen to the Voices for her fascinating series on poisons (if you have to ask - go see for yourself!) and for a wonderful variety of interesting posts

Joanna st James at Bionic Writer for being incredibly un-boring!! Fabulous blog, interesting and varied, fun and witty.

Ok .... over to you and let's hear three things that are "Fair Dinkum" in your lives!



  1. Wow! Thank you this award means a lot to me, especially since it was created by a dear pal.

  10. Hi, fellow Fair Dinkum blogger.

    Fab to get this award, isn't it. As a limey Pom I took it as a great compliment from an Aussie, to be called fair dinkum. It don't get no better than that.


  11. Great list of things that make you, you Dom. Congrats on the award. I had to smile when I saw it on Golden's post.

    My emotions are winning today and I can't think of any fair dinkum things about me. Tomorrow will be better.
