Two More Blogging Awards! Part One – The Versatile Blogger Award

So, having just returned home to my poor, neglected  blog, I was delighted and very surprised to see that, while I was away, the gorgeous Shruti Srinivasan has nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award!  Thank you so much Shruti, it was a wonderful welcome boost and I am honoured to receive this award.  Do please visit Shruti’s inspiring and uplifting blog, you will not be disappointed!

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, much to my amazement I then received another nomination, this time from my lovely ‘blogging buddy’ Beverly Harvey, she of her wonderful blog ‘Moggiepurrs’, for The Sunshine Award 🙂  I will be writing all about this nomination and Beverly’s blog in the next post immediately following this one…hence this being Part One, and the other Part Two! Hope this all makes sense now!

However, what Beverly doesn’t yet realise, but very shortly will, (shhhh, don’t say anything, it’s still a secret!)  is that she is one of  my nominees for The Versatile Blogger Award so now I get to surprise her too!  Oooh, I love surprises!

Right, now back to business. There are certain rules to abide by when nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award, the first and most important rule being making sure to hugely thank the person who nominated you and linking back to their site –  duly done, as above!

The second rule is that you need to find and link back to 15 bloggers whose blogs you follow, or who follow you or who you have some interest in and then the really fun part, let them know right away that you have nominated them!  Keep the smiles going 🙂

So (and this is the hard part as there are so many wonderful blogs to choose from), here you are my lovely bloggers:

1. Moggiepurrs

2. Rising Woman

3. Brunch For Every Meal

4. ArchangelTravels

5. The Baggage Handler

6. Rosalie Squires

7. About The Woman

8.  Adrian Lupsa

9 . Tanyamurchie

11.  All My Canine Companions

12. Victor Travel Blog

13.  Worship His Holiness

14.  The Rogue Healer

15. Lesley Carter

Congratulations to you all!

Now, the last part is that I have to tell you 7 things about myself (and these are very random, just as they popped into my head) which are as follows:

  • I left school when I was 16 after taking my ‘O’ Levels and returned to college full-time 3 years later.
  • I was finally brave enough to go on the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland for the first time this year – and I went not once, but twice, woo hoo!
  • I was adamant that  my children learnt good manners and to be polite – not so old-fashioned really!
  • I am not the extrovert a lot of people think I am.
  • When I failed my driving test for the first time I cried.
  • I have wanted to write a book for 32 years – I think that now is the time!
  • I’m just a crazy rock-chick at heart.

So that’s it, I’ve done my part, now I just have to let you all know the good news about your nominations, then it’s your turn!

Have fun!

    Many congratulations on your awards. They are well-deserved, well done! I await the novel with bated breath….love from Mumbly xxx


  2. Whoo-hoo!! What great news. Congratulations!! And thank you for my nomination, too.

    My advice (which you didn’t ask for) is to just start the book. Don’t wait for the right moment because the perfect right moment never comes. Face down that blinking cursor and tap away on your keyboard. You can always hit the delete button, but at least you will have started!! 🙂

    Thank you and you are very welcome 🙂 Great advice Beverly, that is just what I need to do. Stop thinking about it and just do it…blinking cursor, prepare to be faced down!
