Tigger OBE

Postby Tigger » Thu Jan 01, 2015 11:10 am

I got an OBE in the New Year's Honours. Very unexpected but not bad for an Irish immigrant! Do you think they get to see the list in heaven? My dad would be beaming with pride. :D

Dear Tigger, what a wonderful achiement and i'm sure it is very well deserved. it also couldn't happen to a nicer person.
Everyone around you must be so proud, including people that are no longer with us.

I'm sure that will impress James, too..... :)

Warmest congratulations Tigger. . It is so heart warming when the people who really deserve them get these honours and dispiriting when celebs and people who really contribute little to the fabric of society are rewarded. Your dad would have been very proud and we hope you have a wonderful day at the palace for your investiture.

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

I think it may have been given for, Tiggers never ending commitment that she has given to the NHS, and for being such a lovely person as well, of course....
