Thank You!!!!

22 Sep

Wow, I’ve been nominated by two of my fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award ๐Ÿ˜€ What an amazing honour!!

Firstly, a huge thank you to both these bloggers and a little about them below (hopefully the links work, took me a minute to figure it out ๐Ÿ˜‰ ):

Jacqueline has recently returned to study.ย  Her blog is full of her experiences of trying to hold down a full time job, family stuff, being a carer, study โ€“ and sometimes all the bits in between ๐Ÿ˜€ An immensely enjoyable read, so definitely check it out!

Studying Parent is an Ex Nurse and Midwife who is in the process of applying to work towards a PhD in English Literature. Mother of 3 teenaged daughters: 16yrs, about to go to college to do A levels and 13yr old identical twins, about to go into year 9. Wife to an IT person, carerย of two elderly cats, one of whom needs lots of TLC. Extremely inspiring blog (especially for me whose ultimate (studying) goal is to get my PhD) ๐Ÿ˜€

There are a few rules that go along with this award, so in the spirit of it all here goes.ย  I have to….

1.ย  Thank the person who shared the award with you by linking back to them in your post (as above)
2.ย  Pass this award to 15 recently discovered blogs and let them know that you included them in your blog post (see below)
3.ย  List 7 things about yourself.
So here goes with my 7 things (deep breath):

1. I have a pretty unhealthy obsession with vinegar

2. I hate shopping (except for garden supplies ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

3. About 8 years ago, Melbourne, Australia succeeded in curing my wanderlust. I still love to travel but now I have roots ๐Ÿ™‚

4. I only learned to walk in heels aged 25

5. I am more selfish than I like to believe

6. We get the paper delivered every morning and I sit with it open next to me whilst actually reading it online

7. I have re-read some of my favourite books up to 20 times!

And here are my recently discovered blogs, covering everything from wildlife to mature aged students to sustainable gardening to cooking to fiction writing ๐Ÿ˜€
