“Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” – Voltaire
Apparently you get to choose two of the following:
1: a rather elegant badge for your blog,
2: new top of the range sports car,
3: a holiday home,
4: a years supply of chocolate cake and then liposuction,
5: a Scottish piper and his band marching up and down outside your home at 6 am for a year,
6: a hosted banquet for 300 people (white tie of course).
7: Last, but not least. Knowing that there are kindred spirits and some really nice people out there
who take the time and trouble to care and share.
I have chosen as my prizes: 1 & 7
Speech! You all shout?
Ladies and Gentleman, unaccustomed as I am to public squeaking: I accept the Versatile Blogger badge of honour and appreciate getting to know some of the world’s grooviest foodies as my prize, lastly my thanks once again to The Novice Gardener. Thank you.
OK I’m back, I’m back. Just took a moment there. You will, by now, have realised that I lied about the prizes. I know liar liar pants on fire! I’m still sitting on the naughty step dreaming of lipo hips in a small synapse lapse.
“Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the gratefully and appreciating heart.” – Henry Clay
Every little ‘like’ star ticked and follower brings such delight, thank you one and all. x
Cutting to the chase and back in the real world for a moment from all the heady excitement.
I would just like it to be known that this is my first, and on the back of this, likely my last nomination.
So … I Googled versatile and frankly wish I had’t.
Best case scenario:- Little black/red dress, a reversible coat, a tractor, a sofa bed and a Swiss army pen knife. I’m good with that. Versatile! Then came the words dominant, submissive and alternative.
Naturally I shut the page immediately!
Well, maybe not quite that immediately, just long enough to burst into a peal of mirthless laugher, saying really a little too loud that others came in to see what all the commotion was about. (This is the innocent who wouldn’t talk about invert sugar incase it was something a little shady)!
So swiftly moving on.
It befalls, and delights me, to forward the Versatile Blogger Award, I nominate the following bloggers, a group of spiffing people whose work I find inspiring. I urge you to visit their sites.
The rules for this award are:
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and a link back.
3. Share 7 random interesting things about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award
5. Provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.
6. Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog.
In alphabetical order.
My 7 random things are:
1: I play piano, by ear (and fingers)
2: I could model for Toblerone
3: I am an only child, as is my Husband and Son, as were both of my parents.
4: I was the only non catholic in both Junior and Senior Convent schools (character building stuff)
5: I hand write in italics irrespective of dyslexia. Our Nuns were Italian and the order has subsequently returned to Rome. (sobbing)
6 I Counsel Counsel – (when top end legal professionals need to get it off their chest )
7: I was given 6 months to live 26 years ago and should be dismorphic since my body resembles a relief map of the Cairngorm Mountains. I currently have a pulse, a gin & tonic and tomorrow in my sights, so all’s good.
Should you not wish to proceed with the honour as bestowed, just know and feel appreciated as I did when The Novice Gardener nominated me.
With love and thanks to all. x
