Caught on the hop...

...just as I was giving myself a few too many excuses for not having blogged in over a week, I popped on to find that the very lovely Stef at had nipped in to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you Stef.

There is something of the chain letter about these things but they also serve to widen our online appreciation and get to know others better when we follow the links. I am grateful for being thought of for this award but if anyone on my list isn't happy to go ahead with it, then I also understand that perfectly. x

The Rules

1. Add the award to your blog.

2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.

3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

Ok, so now for the hard bit - 7 random things off the top of my head - truly, otherwise I'll go mad over-thinking it:

1) I can produce an unnaturally high ear-splitting beep. Why? Don't ask me, it started when I was young and now my children love to make me do it.
2) I am double-jointed in both thumbs.
3) My favourite sweets are Lions midget gems - the real ones, not the pretend 'original' ones in the supermarkets. The original Lions gems are fruitier, harder and the black ones are liquorice flavoured.
4) I've never tried sushi and probably never will.
5) I find the Waltzers scary. Really.
6) I love walking in heavy rain. Well sometimes.
7) Ticking clocks drive me potty and I hide them under cushions to muffle the noise.

....phew, too late, they're done...and here are my chosen 15 bloggers:

14) *

*Already awarded (there may be others, if so, sorry) but I had to include in my list because I do visit these regularly. No-one can expect you to do the list thing again, but it is nice to be mentioned. X


  1. Thanks for the nomination lovely! I agree about the ticking clocks; I can hear my neighbour's clock ticking through the wall at night, it drives me crazy! Lovely prints, am looking forward to having a better look :) Hx

  2. Thank you very much for the nomination! Always love seeing your latest work and enjoy your blog - hope you won't mind if I nominate you?! ;)
