Versatile Blogger Award

15 Oct

Well now, that was a pleasant surprise.  An email popped into my inbox this morning from Jereme’s Kitchen, a blog I follow with a lot of interest and enthusiasm and a teeny bit of envy, because all the posts look so scrumptious and so accomplished.  Jereme’s Kitchen had put me up for the Versatile Blogger Award, and all I need to do is tell you seven things about myself, then send a similar request to another fourteen bloggers. If it sounds a bit like those horrid old chain letters, well, I guess it does, but actually it’s  a win-win situation. It opens each blogger up to lots of other bloggers, increasing our readership and providing us with more ideas and inspiration.  Not such a bad thing, huh.

So now then, seven things about me.  Here goes.

1. I was born in South Africa but I have a strong attraction to Italy, so I call myself an African-European.
2. I’m tri-lingual.
3. I was a music teacher for many years, and a chorister too.
4. I’m a stickler for grammar and spelling, and break out in a rash when I see incorrectly-used apostrophes.
5. I love dressing up and partying.
6. I’m a political animal and I loathe apathy and indifference.
7. I keep a little flock of chickens who provide me with fabulous eggs and hours of endless entertainment.

OK, so now I need to compile a list of 14 blogs and it makes sense to select those that haven’t been selected before. Tricky, but here we go…

1.     http://www.domesticsluttery.com

2.     http://themileshighlife.com/

3.      http://pinkelephantcakes.com/

4.      http://www.cakejournal.com/

5.      http://alangleyguideto.wordpress.com/

6.      http://cookingmanu.blogspot.com/

7.      http://ryansbakingblog.com/

8.      http://www.lovefromtheoven.com/

9.      http://citygirlfarming.wordpress.com/

10.   http://frugalfeeding.wordpress.com/

12.    http://www.cooksister.com/

13.    http://simply-delicious.co.za/

14.    http://browniegirlblog.wordpress.com/

And that, it seems, is that. All the blogs listed above have intrigued and inspired me in one way or another, so I hope they’ll be happy to receive my nomination.

Get blogging!

    I was a school music teacher in South Africa, teaching across the school, plus all the extras like Choir and annual musical productions which I loved doing! I’ve done a bit a music teaching in the UK, some private singing pupils too, but don’t enjoy it nearly as much. I also sang in a big symphony choir in SA which was brilliant! What about you? 🙂
