I received a Versatile Blogger award yesterday. Yeah!!!

I was given the award by Sara from the Sincerely,Sara blog.  Thank you so much Sara! Sara is a crafty wife, mum and student. (Where she finds the time to fit in crafting heaven knows!) We both crochet and blog about it – we even have the same WordPress theme for our blogs! Her blog is a pleasure to read. Do yourself a favour and add her to your blogroll.

Now that I have been awarded this coveted award, I have to do a couple of things. The Rules state:

  1.  Thank the person who gave you this award.
  2. Include a link to their blog.
  3.  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
  5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

I’ve done 1 and 2, so here is 3 and 4.

The 15 blogs that I nominate for an award, and I follow regularly are:

Now for number 5. I’ve already told you 10 things about myself here, so I really had to pick my brains to find seven more, but here goes.

  1. I really don’t like roses or carnations.
  2. I really do like sweet peas and tulips.
  3. I’m fascinated by giraffes. Lately I’ve been seeing them all around in photos, clothing, on the internet etc. Never seen one in real life though.
  4. I have only one pair of black socks. All my other socks (and there are many) are bright & patterned.
  5. For his 60th birthday, John and I are giving my Dad a 10 day holiday with us here in the UK. It will be the first time he visits us in our home – we’ve been here for eight years so you can imagine the excitement levels.
  6. I think John makes the best tea and he thinks I make the best coffee. A conversation about hot drinks usually goes like this: “Would you like a cup of tea?” “Oooh, yes please! Would you like a coffee?” “Oooh, yes please! Let’s go.” Off we both go to the kitchen to make each other a tea / coffee. I think it must look really weird to outsiders: he makes tea, I make coffee and when it’s done we switch the mugs.
  7. I have a playlist on my iPod called “Crochet tunes”. The Script, Keane, Adele, Nickleback, Kings of Leon and Train gets me in a hooky mood.

I hope I could introduce you to at least one new blog and that you weren’t too bored by the seven random things about myself.

Thanks again Sara for the award 🙂
