Thank you so much Jan Baynham for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award.
I have to tell you 7 things about myself.
Well here goes…
I am terrified of speaking in public, but as a teenager I wrote a comedy sketch and performed it with my friend on stage twice in front of a hall full of people and what’s more I enjoyed doing it. Small potatoes I know, but still something I’m proud of.
I collect crystals and my most valuable one was a small piece of Moldavite (formed 15 million years ago when a gigantic meteorite hit near the River Moldau) – I say was… I seem to have lost it.
I am scared of thunderstorms. Very scared. Very very scared.
My love of dogs began with a brindle Boxer called Zulu. He was a beautiful and incredibly gentle dog. My mum got him when he was 18 months old and I was around the same age.
I am a Trekkie. My favourite series is the original one. At present I am re-watching DS9 for the umpteenth time.
I bought my first single when I was eleven. It was Xanadu by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch and it remains one of my favourites.
When I started work, the first thing I bought myself was a blue faux suede coat with white fake fur all round the hood, down the front and round the bottom. It cost me £17 and wasn’t lined so it didn’t keep me at all warm, but I loved it! I wore it with white lace up boots and thought I was the bee’s knees.
Now for the best bit – to nominate 15 more blogs for the award and I will leave it to my nominees to decide whether they accept or not as it's not everyone's cup of tea, but anyway, all are worth a visit :
What I love most about these awards is pointing you towards blogs you may not yet have discovered.
Oops, I seem to have slipped in a photo of Dusty there. How did that happen?
And there's a beautiful Harleybird in her tissue box nest.
