Versatile Blogger Award

Bridget at Arigna Gardener has passed on the Versatile Blogger Award to me and I am delighted to accept.

It is very gratifying to think that someone enjoys your blog enough to give you an award.  The rules are that you should pass it on to 15 recently discovered blogs and let the bloggers know they have been nominated.  Then you have to share 7 things about yourself.  Finally thank the award giver and link back to them.

The dictionary definition of  'versatile' is turning easily from one subject to another - so I have chosen recently discovered blogs that cover a variety of subjects.

  1. house-chickens-eggs-cakes
  2. circle of the year
  3. going gently
  4. the summer porch
  5. mrs minivers daughter
  6. corners of my mind
  7. life through reflections
  8. heart shaped
  9. bright star
  10. a place for everything
  11. acorn moon
  12. living on the edge
  13. resistant but persistent
  14. miss whistle
  15. useful or beautiful
Seven things about myself - FAVOURITES
  1. Favourite food - Cake (any shape, size or flavour)
  2. Favourite colour - Fuschia
  3. Favourite book - (the one I have re-read the most) Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris
  4. Favourite movie - (so many to choose from)  The Notebook
  5. Favourite record - (again, so many to choose from) Heartbreak Hotel by Elvis Presley
  6. Favourite television adaptation - Jane Austens' Persuasion
  7. Favourite TV Chef (cook) Nigel Slater
Phew!  That has taken an age to compile both lists - I would quite understand if any of those bloggers I have chosen refused to accept the Award - it is very time consuming fulfilling all the obligations that come with it.
Now all I have to do is inform them.


  1. Congratulations on the award, very well deserved. There's only a few of the blogs you have nominated which I've already come across so I shall check the others out.
