Versatile Blogger Award

Squeak! I can't believe it! Jessica over at Vintage Mauve nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award and to say I am chuffed to bits is an understatement. I'm not a girl who makes high-pitched noises very often, but they keep escaping at the moment!  Thank you so much, Jessica! In one week, I managed a 3rd place spot in Laura's photo challenge over at Our Reflection (thank you Kate @ Creative Cookie who was the guest judge this week.) AND this award. More than that though, I have met lots of new girly bloggers and enjoyed reading their amazing writing.    I am so excited to pass the award on today. 

Firstly then...some information!
The rules of the award:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award.
  • Include a link to their blog.
  • Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • Nominate those 15 for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  • Finally, share 7 things about yourself.
  • In the same post include this set of rules.
  • Inform each nominee with a comment on their blog.
I noticed from Jessica's nominations that we have a very similar taste in blogs!  She nominated some of the ones I would have picked - which is great, because I had lots more than 15 bloggers I could nominate and she already did some of them for me without even realising. (I'm not sure that makes my head it does!)

So my 15 nominees are:
 1.  Brooke @ Covered in Grace
2. Mandi @ Debonair Bandit
4. Danielle @ Framed Frosting
5. Bethany @ Pitter & Glink
7. Lauren @ Tippie Canoe
8. Annelise @ Aunie Sauce
9. Katie @ Little Becky Homecky
10. Meghan @ Struggling Cyster
11. Heather @ Keeping up with the Giffords
12. Heidi @ Row House 14
13. Amanda @ Raising Miss Mommy
14. Kimberley @ A Night Owl
15 Katlyn @ The Dreamy Meadow
Please, please, please go and visit them and show them lots of bloggy love - they have some awesome posts to read this week and you might even find a couple of awesome giveaways while you're there too!

So....7 'interesting' facts about me:

1. I like animals that look a bit 'awkward'.  I love ducks, flamingos, giraffes and penguins.  Domestically I am a cat, not a dog person.  I like other people's dogs though...I just wouldn't get one.

2. I hate being told I can't do something.  I believe that people have the ability to be successful (in some capacity) in everything they choose to do and work hard at.  I was told that I wouldn't cope with an English A-level once by my English teacher.  (That's like a high school level exam in the UK) - I am now an English teacher and got an A grade in the A-level I wouldn't 'cope' with.  I am obsessively ambitious when I have goals. It's people like my English teacher who remind me to encourage and support people with their goals rather than judge and block them.

3.  I love English breakfast tea.  I am addicted.  In England it's just called 'tea'...and the way I drink it with milk and two sugars is called a 'builder's tea'.

4. I also love guitar based the Foo Fighters, who I met when I was 21.  Love, love, love, love Dave Grohl.  I saw them when I was 16 and still love them (cough) 14 years later. 

5.  I am scared of jellyfish, crabs and seaweed.  Going to the beach with me is heaps fun!

6.  I am really happy in my own company.  I like spending time by myself and find peace in making things, reading and napping.  I used to be really dependent on friends and family, but living in Italy and travelling to Australia helped massively with me finding the confidence and space to be myself.

7.  I don't eat: onion, mushrooms, sweetcorn, rice or eggs (unless in cakes). I keep trying; it doesn't work: yucky disgusting things.

So,  thank you again to Jessica for nominating me.  I hope that you will take the time to visit my nominations.  They are really are great ladies.

Any more questions - just drop me an email or tweet me.

AWW! Thanks! Flamingos are awesome, and so are giraffes. I think awkward animals are the cutest.
I love my tea with milk and sugar. Mmmm.
Mushrooms are icky.

Thanks so much for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award! :) I really like spending time by myself too. I could craft for hours alone, but then sometimes I just have a day where I need to do something somewhere with someone, if that makes sense. And I find the tea "facts" that I learned from you fascinating! Thanks again!
