Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile blogger award

The very lovely Danni from Gingerbread Smiles recently nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award.  Thank-you so much, Danni, I really appreciate it!

I did a little bit of Googling and discovered that the Versatile Blogger award is to spread blog love and also to highlight some of your favourite blogs, especially those that others may not have heard of.

The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award are:
  • Display the Award Certificate on your blog
  • Announce your win with a post and thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Present 15 deserving bloggers with the award.
  • Link your nominees in the post and let them know of their nomination with a comment.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
My Nominees for the Versatile Blogger award are:

Seven Interesting (your mileage may vary) Facts About Me:

1. I used to dance a lot.  I started with ballet when I was about five--there are some dire pictures of me in a purple leotard with a massive afro in my parents photo album--moved into Highland dancing.  I did a sideways move into Scottish country dancing for a few years--there was always a ceilidh to go to at Uni--and had a brief flirtation with ballroom and salsa before settling on belly dancing.

2. I was once the only black member of a gospel choir.  That was weird to say the least!

3. I am a bit OCD about my keys.  They always have to go into the same pocket and in the same place at home, and I triple check I've got them before I leave the house.  This probably stems from that one time I broke off a key in our front door lock...

4. Dave, Lucas and I have been immortalised in comic form.  We're in a crowd scene in an issue of The Uniques by our friends Comfort and Adam Withers.

5. I would love to have a cake decorating business.

6. Due to research I did in my last year at University, I am published in a couple of scientific journals.

7. I want to write a book someday.  A murder mystery, something along the lines of Diane Mott Davidson's Goldy Schultz books with recipes included.  I just need a plot!

  1. Thank you for the nomination! Your facts were certainly versatile. I think you are a shoo-in for a cake decorating business. And to be immortalized in comic form is an honor!

  2. Let me know when the business is up and running, I'll start the queuing!
    Thanks so much for the nomination!
