Many of you won’t be getting awards this year. Most of us will not get a Knighthood…or even the  MBE…. despite all we do for our country.  There are so many absurd awards at this time of year… so why be left out?!

Help yourself to *THE CHARON QC Drinking & Blogging Award 2010*. The good news?  You don’t need to be a blogger… but I would be pleased if you had the occasional glass of what you fancy.  Feel free to exhibit on your blog…or even print it out and show people down at the pub…. all yours!

I have even awarded one to myself… but regular readers will know that I award myself honours and awards when I feel like it.




Delighted that Barbed Wire Bouquet has taken a Charon QC Award!


And a fair few others….. go on…. help yourself!
