Versatile Blogging Award


I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award……twice! The nominations were made by By Hook or by Pen written by J.G. Burdette.

…and Jill Goldberg at

Many thanks. I am really quite excited by this as only being in my 4th month of blogging I feel this is quite an honour. It was a lovely surprise to come back to too. Now there are certain rules that I need to stick to. These are….

Nominees must:

* Tell seven things about themselves

* Pass the award on to 15 other blogs

* Thank the person who nominated them for the award.

Seems a bit like a chain letter…but here goes…..

  1. I love shoes……or the buying of them. (And handbags.)
  2. I sing…in the shower, garden, drying my hair; I don’t care.
  3. I love Laurel and Hardy. I have my Grandpa to thank for this one! He introduced us all the old comededians …Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd. But Stan and Ollie are definately my favourites.
  4. I play the piano……badly! Grandpa to thank again….he played piano for all the old movies from the age of 9, he was a fantastic pianist. I, however, am completely self taught…as is my playing of the clarinet.
  5. I love the Star Wars Series. Star Wars was the first film I ever saw at the cinema. (When I first started teaching, and told my class that, they looked at me in awe….now they just look at me and I know what they are thinking….’You’re that old?’)
  6. I find swimming for exercise boring. Swimming up and down a lane in a pool seems pointless to me. At least when running you get a change of view…not that I do much of that either!
  7. I love very rare steak. Probably why I love going to France so much…they do a mean ‘blue’ steak. 🙂

So who will I nominate? I am not sure I can manage 15!

Wow! 11! I didn’t think I followed that many! These are all crafty blogs, some touching on family life. Thank you to all of you who in turn inspire me.

Now I have to work out how to put the award tag on the webpage. Any ideas anyone?

  1. Wow . . .congratulations on your well-deserved reward, and THANK YOU for the shout out! Since we both use the Matala WordPress theme, I can tell you how I put buttons on my sidebar (but maybe it’s the same for all the themes??? Don’t know . . .) Anyway, if you want to email me at I’ll email you back how I do it. And thanks again for the lovely award! 🙂

  2. To put the award in your sidebar you’ll want to go up to your widgets and insert it through the image widget. Paste the url for the image of the award into “Image Url” section. That should do it. And congratulations!
