thought overload

I have some fun news today. I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award. Not once – but twice this week!

I am not sure if this is VBA acceptable but I am killing two birds with one stone here and thanking Cheesecake Summer and happilyeverafterorsomething for nominating me! I am absolutely tickled pink! (OK, is that just an Aussie term or does that traverse the cultures?)

For those of you that don’t know the rules – here they are:

  1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post
  2. Share 7 things about yourself
  3. Nominate 15 recently discovered blogs you enjoy reading
  4. Contact the bloggers you have nominated and let them know about the award

Here goes…

7 things you don’t know about me ( and might not want to!)

  1. I colour match my pegs when I hang the washing on the line. I mean I have to. My sister once pegged all my pegs in matching colours on the line and said to me “There, how’s that for your OCD?” Err, thanks.
  2. I accidentally wore my PJ pants to school in Grade 5 under my uniform. I just forgot to take them off. I spent the day in total mortification of someone finding out. You know the little frill bloomer numbers of the late 70’s? Yeah- those.
  3. I have trouble sleeping
  4. I have never had my driver’s licence
  5. I don’t have any tattoos
  6. I do have my nose pierced (a small gold heart). My husband payed for it on my 40th Birthday so I couldn’t chicken out.
  7. I once fell asleep at work, sitting on the toilet. In my defence it was after a 12 hour night shift.

The 15 13 bloggers I have stumbled upon recently and you should take a look at (OK,ย  I know I fell short of the required 15 but if you read my blog regularly – are you at all suprised?)

  1. Suz’s Petals
  2. Shambolic Living
  3. fishinginthefields
  4. Tamara Out Loud
  5. EduDad
  6. Mightier Than the Pen
  7. Michael Cargill
  8. Catas Trophy Wife
  9. The Rookie Dad
  10. The Laughing Housewife
  11. my family is not broken
  12. Johnlmalone’s blog

That wraps up this post for today. I still have my blogging ‘L plates’ and am trying to work out links in my posts but I think I may have mastered it. I am off to contact all the recipients of my nomination now. I promise.

  1. Tickled pink works in America, too!

    Congrats on the VBA!! Yeah!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Being a bit OCD, I LOVE the pegs all matching. I do that with push-pins (tacks) on bulletin boards.

  2. I wonder if any writers DON’T have trouble sleeping. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Congrats on your award!

  3. Congrats on winning this award!! And it must be exciting to win this twice :). I already adore your blog.

  4. I often find myself wandering into the kitchen to make tea at 4am! Much congrats on the award and I’ll check out the bloggers you’ve passed it onto, it’s always nice to get recommendations.

  5. Thank you very much Vixy!

    Just out of interest, if you have never had your driving license who has had it all these years?

  6. Congratulations; and thanks for passing it on!

    I love 2 * 7 ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Thanks for the nomination. Looks like I have some homework to do.
