The Versatile Blogger Award

Eek! So the lovely Becca at From My Lofty Hill has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks so much! This is the second award I’ve been nominated for in just a few weeks so I’m feeling mighty happy.

Like I’ve said before, I started this blogging caper for my own amusement but I’m really enjoying it and have been find myself typing away every chance I get. I’m clicking on links to other bloggers all the time and my list of favourites is slowly growing.

The rules for this award are below:

▪  Thank the person who nominated you.

▪  Write 7 interesting things about yourself.

▪  Next, nominate 15 other brill bloggers for the award.

Writing 7 ‘interesting’ things is easier said than done, but I shook the messy box that is my head and this is what I came up with:

  1. I have a deceptively large head. Serious, even men’s hats don’t fit me. Must be all those brains har de har.
  2. I am a sci-fi geek. Not so much books but I love watching any movie with space travel or aliens in it (if you haven’t seen Interstellar you haven’t lived). I even find myself watching documentaries about quantum physics, I don’t always understand them but tune in anyway in case I finally crack what’s beyond the event horizon.
  3. I never wear heels unless I absolutely have to. I always fall on my face and come home with 2 scratched knees.
  4. I can still do a cartwheel and a crabs bend.
  5. I wanted to be a baker or postman when I grew up. Mind you I never did anything to become either of those things.
  6. The worst job I had was in a call centre. People will say whatever they want to you when they’re not face to face so I had to develop a thick skin quickly. I’ve also worked cleaning toilets and the toilets are still more inviting than a headset.
  7. I’m obsessed with anything miniature. After reading The Indian in the Cupboard as a kid I was convinced I could make my own mini civilisation in my bedroom if I just wished hard enough.

Here’s my nominees:

1. Chomeuse With A Chou

2. Written In The Ink

3. Whatever I Write

4. A Hundred Falling Veils

5. Erik Rittenberry

6. Incidental Naturalist

7. Attic 24

8. In Search Of It All

9. Lancashire Lad

10. Lizzie’s Restless Feet

11. Maulik Pandit

12. Tea and Tales

13. The Jess

14. Whisper

15. Thoughts Of Adventure

I think some of the above have already been nominated and I’m not sure if I’m supposed to nominate non-Wordpress blogs but these a few of my faves anyway and are definitely worth a click!

  1. Thanks for accepting and I really enjoyed your answers. I’m in with not being able to walk around in high heels (haha this farm girl wears either boots or slippers most of the time 😅) and my miniature obsession is definitely for miniature Jersey cows. Omg! Their calves are the cutest, most cuddly creatures I’ve ever seen! (Next to GSD puppies)

  2. Thanks so much for the nomination! You got to me before I could get to you 😉 I liked your facts and am very envious thst you can still do a cartwheel. I was never able to do a proper one. My husband is a big fan of sci-fi so I’m slowly becoming more knowledge on the subject. My favourite programme/film is Firefly/serenity, but possibly because i don’t think it takes itself too seriously and is mainly cowboys on a spaceship! I bet you make a mean cake when you feel so inclined – your family must feel very lucky 🙂
