Very Inspiring Blogger Award

While I was away over the last couple of weeks it seems I was fortunate enough to receive a blogging award nomination!!

A big thank you to Linnet Lane for the nomination for Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

It’s very flattering to be acknowledged in this way.

The rules of the award are that as a nominee you should –

Thank and link the person who nominated you.
List the rules and display the award.
Share seven facts about yourself.
Nominate other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
Optional: Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.

Okay, so I’d better follow the rules. Here are 7 facts you don’t know about me:

1. I can’t ride a bicycle even though I live in such a big cycling country so three wheels helps me get around instead.

2. I once won a contest strap lined ‘Britain’s Brainiest Diver.’

3. I’m a super taster so don’t like beer, celery or honey even though I keep bees.

4. I used to be petrified of frying eggs.

5. My shortest job was working as a waitress for one day.

6. I don’t like Christmas.

7. I don’t do any ironing at all.

For my nomination I choose Frugal Hausfrau

Her blog is full of ideas for cooking and keeping budgets tight. It’s a different angle from my blog but has ideas that often result in greener consequences. Plus there’s chocolate cake! I like blogs with ideas and life suggestions for inspiration.

    Congratulations on your award, you deserve it πŸ™‚ You have no idea how much you sound like me, don’t iron; don’t like beer, celery or honey (nice on the skin and hair not in the mouth!) don’t ike Christmas and can’t ride a bike lol. WOULD NEVER waitress because I know someone would wear their meal. That’s so funny.

    Well done on the award πŸ™‚ I am with you on number 7! I can spend 2 hours ironing a shirt and it will look worse than when I started.

    Ha ha! Brilliant! I don’t like Christmas either. I don’t even own an iron – can’t remember the last time I used one! (It probably shows in my pics) πŸ˜‰ My shortest job was half a day in a shoe shop in Oz – feet… UGH!

    Ha! I don’t do ironing and am a super taster, too. I force myself to eat things like lettuce, even though I can’t say I like the bitter after-taste.

    Anyway, congratulations on winning the award!

      It’s odd how some things taste. I eat curry now but have to be in the right frame of mind : )

        My ex-husband is from Pakistan, so I learned to eat curry lol! That said, I can taste the individual ingredients, which means I can enjoy the cauliflower and potato in aloo gobi. It also means I would never eat prawn curry as no amount of chilli could mask the inherent fishiness of it.

        Funnily enough though, it’s fresh coriander which makes my toes curl. The worst is leaves cut into tomato salad. Think I had better go and have a slice of chocolate fudge cake to console myself after that thought….

        I read something recently that ten percent of the population have an issue with coriander. Hmm I should try and find it.

        Maybe that’s the thing that you don’t like in curry.

        Really? That’s a shame as it is so good for you. Couldn’t stand it when I was a kid but now I even like it by itself as a tea.

        I have the same with lavender…. Just been to Yorkshire Lavender and it is confirmed: instead of feeling blissfully relaxed, I feel really quite rough. Will have to think carefully where I’m going to store the soaps I bought as presents.
