Versatile Blogger Award

Very many thanks to Ann Foweraker who has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award which is fun and very pleasing. I did wonder, does versatile suggest a butterfly mind or eclectic thinker?

To qualify I have to tell you, my readers, 7 random bits of information about myself:

  1. I determined to learn to swim before I was 40 and I did it!
  2. I lived at 21 addresses by the time I was 21.
  3. I knew I was pregnant with twins before I was 8 weeks pregnant though the Drs kept telling me I was going to be disappointed. I wasn’t! (This was in the days before scans)
  4. I was born in Lancashire, grew up in Cornwall and lived for 40 years in Yorkshire. I’ve been back ‘home’ in Cornwall for over 4 years.
  5. I wish I could paint.
  6. I went to woodwork classes when I was pregnant with No1 and made the playpen while Mr S made the cot.
  7. I’ve lived at only 4 addresses since being 21.

And I am to nominate 15 other Bloggers so here are my nominees whose blogs I read with great pleasure and interest. It’s so good to be part of the world wide blogging community. which is the blog which first inspired me to start – thank you

Flowerpot Days where I found TBT, thank you too.

      I so enjoy your photos: I love the close ups. I recently changed my camera and I’m not getting the close ups of flowers as I should. I need to go back to my handbook!I also love your garden sculptures and have been inspired to post photos of the ones we have in our garden. Watch out for them!
