Versatile Bloggers Award

I have a VBA. I didn't know what it was but I do now and I have one, well two:)

The awards were given to me by our friends HS from Hidden Slave and Vixen, from Picking my Own Brain, Composing Us three wonderful bloggers.

As Vixen puts it - "It is one of those 'round robin' self perpetuating things designed to allow bloggers to share their reading habits with others. The Blogosphere is a big place - bordering on enormous! and lovely snippets, wonderful posts, brilliant blogs can end up lost in the ether, wandering unnoticed in space until someone says "hey, have you seen this?" So, as I understand it, that is what the VBA is all about - sharing. It is good to share." and she's right.

There are rules to this -

1. You need to link back to the person that gave you the award
2. You need to share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass along this award to 15 blogs you enjoy reading!

Vixen, HS, Composing Us thank you. It was quite a surprise but a lovely one when there are far more deserving bloggers.

Seven things about myself, do you really want to know more, is that a yes I hear? OK here goes..
  • The cane is now my favourite implement
  • My favourite food is Italian
  • I jog or walk 5 miles a day
  • I'm terrified of mice, really I am. I have to look away when I see one on TV, now how silly is that!
  • I've incorporated hula hooping into my exercise routine. I'd forgotten how much fun it was
  • My favourite wine, is a full bodied Rioja, red and rich
  • I've started going to yoga classes.

Now for the third rule - the awards - and there lies the problem and you all know I'm not one for too many rules so I'm afraid I can't pass the award onto only 15 because there are too many wonderful bloggers out there all worth reading so I can't just choose 15, now can I?

So please go and take a look at my blog list and pick any of the blogs. You wont be disappointed.

Ronnie I wish I had your discipline for daily exercise. Can we still be friends is I told you back when I worked for a Vet we raised mice to feed the birds of prey - but we would often claim one as pets and carry them around in our pockets during the day for company.

Hermione - Thanks you, Do Canada have any good wines?

PK - Noooo, I even hate to hear that word:)


Michael M said...

Congrats on your well deserved award for dedication to blogging in the face of a busy life.
Verily your Bottom needs Marking now.

Hermione said...

Canada does indeed have many fine vineyards and wine producers in the southernmost parts.

PK, I used to keep pet mice, and often had one peeking out from inside my collar or running up one sleeve and down the other. Sorry Ronnie!

Hermione - I'll have to keep a look out for some and please no more talk of those little creatures:(

I'm finding I'm repeating myself but I'm finding it great to read everybody's 7 things. Gives a tiny touch of insight into everybody and personalises the whole blogger thing for me while still being able to maintain anonymity :)
Ps: I'm not a lover of red, more Zinfandel but I would never say no :)

ronnie said...

Dee - No, I agree it's great finding out a little bit more about bloggers.

Some Italian wines are good.

Thanks Dee.

Congratulations Ronnie:
I really like your blog,and the award is well deserved.

glad that you like wine... not certain what grape taste rioja is, so will purchase some this week.
Seeing as the cane is not your favorite (might I say least favorite), then 24 from P is going to be a jolly good time (for him only) A full bodied red wine, to match your red bottom.
Yoga is wonderful. It has increased Cindy's flexibility, and those squats are heavenly in our sex life...
