Versatile Blogger Award

Last week I was lucky enough to be passed on another award, from the wonderful Irene Waters – thank you, Irene!

Irene Waters is a writer and memoirist; her blog is full of beautiful words and images and most definitely worth visiting. Here’s the link:

versatile blogger award, blogging award

Although it has taken me a week to get around to it, I would like to accept this award. For the first time since I started this blog last November, I have found it a struggle to keep it going, but it is very encouraging to get these little badges!

Here are the rules for accepting the Versatile Blogger Award:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Accepting this award has meant looking around for more excellent blogs to nominate, and in doing so I have discovered a few new ones – all worth visiting:

Now, for 7 facts about me:

1) I am left handed – this used to be a disadvantage, until keyboards became more common than pen and paper – as the most common letter combinations are on the left of the keyboard, I can type at lightning speed.

2) I gain enormous satisfaction from removing the soft fluff from the dryer filter, and always wonder if there is a use for it?

3) I love the colour red, and every house I have chosen to live in has had a red wall somewhere

4) I was born an hour after Valentine’s Day.

5) My guilty pleasure is listening to Pink

6) My husband and I are currently catching up on Breaking Bad via Netflix, to see what all the fuss is about – this series is responsible for the bags under our eyes, as we watch one episode after another after the kids have gone to bed

7) I learned to ice skate at the age of 35, with my then 7-year-old daughter (she soon overtook me).

And now – back to this week’s half-term occupation of trying to detach the kids from the TV….

  1. Congratulations Rose Red. Thanks for your facts. I had not realised how difficult it was for a left hander to write in the conventional manner. Someone showed me the other day and it made sense that a left hander would naturally write from the west of the paper yet convention forces you to write from the east. I’d never thought about it so I found it an interesting concept. I know what you mean about pulling the fluff off the filter. Cheers Irene

  2. Congrats to you. Thanks for nominating friendly fairy tales, my friend. I hope you will continue blogging. It’s good to have an outlet and good to be in the habit of writing often. I quite like it. Hugs, Brenda
