…….And here is that basket. I don’t know what noun should be used as a naming noun for gratitude, but a basket fits nicely. My thanks go to http://icklekins.wordpress.com/about/ for her nomination of my blog for the versatile blogger award. I feel like I should be more bendy in a yoga sort of way if I am going to be truly versatile, but that’s my mind for you!
This requires some blogging etiquette so stay with me, when one is nominated there are responsibilities, no gain without pain as they say. So..
If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.
- Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
- Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
Seven fascinating details about me then;
I’m female. That isn’t bragging, it just impacts quite alot on my life. I was brought up with older brothers and for quite a few years was quite confused by the male/female thing. It came as quite a shock when I entered the adult world that girls were generally treated differently. Normally pretty shabbily. I’ve got over that now though.
I like thinking a lot. This hasn’t always gone down well. If I had a pound for every time someone told me ‘You think too much’ I would have a better wardrobe than I own now. I wish the general population thought more, but what do I know?
Babies and puppies make me go ‘Ahhhhhhh!’ Sorry!! They just do.
I can’t abide seafood. Yuk. Yuk. Yuk.
I have a deep longing to be fluent in a different language , but absolutely know there is not a chance in Hell that I will achieve anything near.
If I could choose one thing to improve the quality of my life, it would be a flotation tank. I could immerse myself in hot water to my chin for hours. I may dissolve , but that could help the sliimming problem.
I feel lucky. Lucky to be in a country that values democracy, lucky to have the food I want to eat, and lucky to have the privilege of loving my family, who I think are the bees knees, even if they think I am a crazy lady, who talks to anyone and likes trees alot.
Whoah!!! Getting quite teary here, now for the part where I hand over to you good people my nominations. There are alot of great people out there, just doing their thing.

Wow, got to the end!! thanks again to icklekins, wherever you are. Will be back to blogging as usual as soon as I have got the ironing done. There’s always a silver lining. Blogging is like my cup of tea time, a reward after doing something I have to do. While I’m ironing I shall be thinking about what to talk to you all about. Win ,win!
