The lovely Nia Simone has nominated me for the Versatile Blog Content Award. Two awards in two days… I am really grateful that there are people out there who want to read about our quiet corner of Spain. Many thanks, again! Read Nia’s post here. As always with blogging awards, there are certain steps to follow:-
1. Display the logo in a post
2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back.
3, Using the alphabet, describe yourself in a word or a phrase.
4. Nominate eight (8) deserving bloggers and inform them of the nomination.
First, the A-Z:-
Afraid of heights.
Chocolate pixie, according to my husband, who secretly eats his secret stash of Green & Blacks. I deny this!
Downhill skier, slowly. Not like this.
Football fan, Manchester United. Going to see The Hobbit 2 tonight. Who cares about the reviews, for a Tolkein fan it just has to be seen. Hopeless at maths. Cannot add up to save my life.
I love life.
Kipper-eater. Craster kippers and wholemeal toast for breakfast.
Lover of Fleetwood Mac. Mozart fan, listening to the Requiem as I write.
Novelist. Read my first, Ignoring Gravity, here.
Obsessed about books.
Persistent, I was brought up to work hard and make my own success.
Quiet, because I am reading.
Reading, always [see Q].
Small, 5ft 1in.
Tuna is my favourite food, quickly followed by eggs.
Upset when I run out of Yorkshire teabags.
Xcited about this award.
Zzzz [I love sleeping]
And now, here are the eight deserving bloggers I want to nominate for this award. I have enjoyed reading their blogs this year:-
Jonas at Jonas Journeys, writing about travelling to the corners of the earth where tourists don’t go
Con Jamón, the Alpujarras bloggers. New in 2013 like me!
GP Cox at Pacific Paratrooper for the history, for the research, for the moving black and white photographs of war in the Pacific.
Beautiful black and white photos at M. FUNK Fine Art//Photography.
Andrea Stephenson at Harvesting Hecate on creativity.
Ella Dee_Words from Sydney, Australia, whose blog I first found because she wrote about a ginger cat [and I had a beloved ginger cat for many years].
Gwendoline Wilson at Garrulous Gwendoline, another Aussie whose posts always make me smile.
Rommel at The Sophomore Slump for some fabulous destinations.
Visit them all, and enjoy!
