I’ve Been Freshly Pressed!

Lamb in GrassI’m gobsmacked! That’s a word I learned since moving to England and I don’t think there’s a better word to describe how I’m feeling right now. I feel very honored. And totally shocked. In a good way!

Cows and Country Near Prestbury” was chosen to be Freshly Pressed and as a featured post under multiple tags. I’m so pleased! Thrilled, actually. I’m also feeling a little bit like the lamb above. After all, I feel like I’m still something of a baby blogger.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and having a look, “Like”-ing my post, or leaving comments. I hope you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen and will stop by again.

For today, I was working on a post about my recent visit to Blenheim Palace, but I’m now planning to post that tomorrow. Instead, I’ll leave you with a restful moment near Dolbadarn Castle in Llanberis, North Wales.

    Congratulations – how fun! Gobsmacked .. it’s such a fun word. I know it’s in my vocabulary but didn’t know it was english English. Some things crept in while we lived there, some words I’ve picked up from my British-English (native German) husband. But I giggled out loud and for quite awhile while blog-reading a few days ago and came across one commenter who wrote “je suis gobsmacked.” It seems that it creeps into just about any languages vocabulary. Congratulations again!

    • Thanks! Yes, gobsmacked is a fun word and sometimes just the right one. I’d never heard it while living in the States, but I’ll use it freely when I visit France. 😉 That’s pretty funny!

    I have to admit I had to go check what the criteria for being ‘freshly pressed’ was…way to go! I think your blog has definate potential to be freshly pressed again! Interesting, own images, capturing titles, error free and no bad content!

    Congratulations! That post deserved to be “Freshly Pressed” because it was absolutely amazing! (And I love the baby lamb photo above, as well!)

  8. If you hadn’t been FPd for the last one, I think you would have deserved it on this one alone. Two contrasting and equally lovely shots.
