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…















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? 🙂
