The Versatile Blogger Award

Shalvika has very kindly awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.

I would recommend you going to Shalvika’s blog where you will find, amongst other things, a young woman graced with a wonderful and very talented writing ability.

Thank you Shalvika, I feel very honoured by this award.  ;)

The rules for this award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Add The Versatile Blogger Award.
  3. Share 10 things about yourself.
  4. Pass the award on to 10 nominees.
  5. Include this set of rules.
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.

Here are 10 things about me: 

  1. I love anything to do with ballroom dancing – the music, the movement, the fun and the friendship. You meet the nicest people….!
  2. I had a fear of heights for many years. (But I have always loved flying!)
  3. If anyone had suggested to me that one day I would be ‘blogging’ and loving it; well…… ’nuff said…! 
  4. I love shoes…. the fancier the better…!  These are a favourite. ( The pic doesn’t do them justice. They are black and silver…  so gorgeous…!)
  5. The older I get the less conservative is my dress sense. I love colour.
  6.  I have a great passion for the written word, which grows more and more with every passing day.
  7. I love dark chocolate. My partner K introduced me to his passion and it stuck. Just as well we can dance it off..!   Though, strangely,  my hips do seem to like it to stay on them for a while, and resist letting go….  ;)
  8. I love to cook. These days though, I don’t seem to have the time to indulge.
  9. I would love to be able to play the piano and admire anyone who can play any musical instrument….!
  10. The older I get the more I do. The older I get the more I want to do. The older I get the more I enjoy life. The older I get the faster time flies. The older I get the more I want to know. The older I get the more fun I’m having. And I always thought that getting older was something I didn’t want to do…!   ;)

Here are my nominees: They are an eclectic group, some old friends, some new. Please enjoy going to see their blogs; I do..!  ;)

There are many other blogs that I would love to nominate who come to my little space and leave comments and likes – I really appreciate all of you guys; really I do. I’m not being inspired to include any more nominations and, being the obedient little soul that I am I will leave my nominations at the 7 that I have been inspired to name. 

Thank you all who visit – Blogging is indeed becoming a favourite thing of mine to do, thanks to all of you…  ;)
