The Veratile Blogger Award

I've been really lucky and have been given a Versatile Blogger Award by Jellybean's Odds and Ends.

It's taken me a little while to reply as one, I wanted to get MMJ out the way and two I've found it really difficult to think of seven different things about myself that I haven't told you and then think of seven bloggers to pass it onto.

So, here goes: 
  1. I can roll my tongue 
  2. Although I have an MA in English Literature I've never read any Jane Austen or Charles Dickens and am quite happy about it.  I've tried to read 'Mansfield Park' and gave up.
  3. I love love love the beach and have been there today, photos on the next post.  Yeah, I've probably said this before but it's worth mentioning again!
  4. When I go to the beach I feel it's a wasted visit if I don't at least dip my feet in the water and find one shell to bring home.
  5. I'm a big Studio Ghibli fan, if you haven't seen Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro or Howl's Moving Castle, please do!
  6. I would love to keep llamas, and a menagerie of other animals on a small holding but really want a llama!
  7. I've never flown in an aeroplane.
So that's my seven random facts about me!  Don't you feel you know me so much better now?? haha!

And my seven nominations are:
Laura from Laura in a Tangle
Mary from 3 Loved ones, 2 cats and a bird brain
Alison from A Fabric Fixation
Charlotte from Sew far Sew good
KC from The Sewcratic Method
Kirsty from The Reel McCoy
Diane from Marguerite Designs

So ladies, go forth and spread the blog love and share a little about yourself for all us nosey folk if you wish!


  1. Congrats on the bloggy award! Interesting little facts too... do you have a phobia of flying? And Mansfield Park is my least favourite Austen, didnt like it at all infact... Try Northanger Abbey one day, its totally different :-)

  2. Hey thanks Mimi! I'm honoured! What do I do now? Give 7 facts about myself and pass the award on?

  3. Thanks Sarah! No I don't fear it, I do have a fear of heights but just haven't flown.

    Diane, that's exactly it, just link back to me, give your facts and nominate 7 other bloggers. Glad you like it, thought it's always nice to get something!

  4. No Dickens?!?! I've heard 'Little Doritt' is one of his good works. It's in my Kindle, and on my to read list. And we must think alike. I am at the beach as well. Can't wait to go get my toes in the sand.

  5. Yeah no Dickens! Glad you've got to go to the beach too! Enjoy!

  6. well done Mimi, I love your bog. x x x

  7. Thank you! That's really nice to know!
