Versatile Blogger Award

First of all thank you so much for all your lovely comments, they really are appreciated and I love reading them. Welcome to my two new followers, Kathy and Rowan, I hope you continue to enjoy reading my musings.

It's been a busy week as I have had to get lots of Uni work done, this happens about every six weeks when the next assignment has to go in and consequently when that's out of the way, I have lots of catch up to do. You know the things ironing, housework, errands to run the boring stuff. Aside from all that I'm eager to start some sewing as well. I have missed writing up my posts and look forward to being back in the swing of things.

I was really delighted last week to receive a Versatile Blogger Award from Elaine at and I'm so chuffed to think that my small contributions are read and enjoyed bearing in mind that I've only fully been blogging for about six weeks now, so am more than happy to accept this Award. Thank you Elaine.

The rules are that you should pass it on to 15 recently discovered blogs and let the bloggers know they have been nominated. Then you have to share 7 things about yourself. Finally thank the award giver and link back to them.


Now for seven things about me:

Love going for long walks by the sea or in the country
Enjoy socialising with friends and family
Look forward to holidays and long weekends away
Have traced my family history
Want to write a book - possibly about the ancestors
Spend lots of time visiting London
Studying with the OU for a history degree - graduate next year

That's all for now and speak again very soon.


  1. Hi Patricia,You've brightened My day!Thankyou so much for the award! I love that you find my blog in any way interesting.I will proudly accept the award and write about it in My next post. Thanks so much,again,lots of love juliexxx

  2. Hi Patricia, thanks for this, don't think I can nominate anywhere near that many blogs as I don't read too many yet. So perhaps I ought to turn it down. Thanks anyway.

    1. Well Patricia, I've had a think about this overnight, still don't think I can nominate 15 so may have to do less than this but I will have a go in the next few days. Thanks again.

  3. Thank you Patricia for the award! I'm really touched! I will try to do the necessary as soon as possible but in the meantime, I'm going to have a look at the other blogs you've nominated, as I'm sure to enjoy reading them too! Hope the errands are soon over and you can manage to squeeze in some sewing soon1

  4. Thankyou very much Patricia, how lovely, on a day when I've felt under the weather and grotty, to get something so cheery! I will have a good think and write a post about it. x Sally

  5. I don't know any of the blogs you have mentioned so will enjoy going through them all.

  6. Thank you so much for the award Patricia. Would you mind if I passed. I find it difficult to think of new things to say about myself and there are so many wonderful blogs out there i wouldn't know where to start! I'll have a look at the other blogs though. xx

  7. hello Patricia and thank you so much for thinking of my blog to award it! I love new blogs and 'meeting' new bloggy friends so thank you for popping by mine. I have just become your newest follower too!
    Have a great Sunday evening,

    BH x

  8. Hi there

    I only just noticed that you awarded me the Versatile Blogger award and I'm very flattered - but I already had it on one of my other blogs. The things you have to do when you accept it (all the 'things you didn't know about me stuff) don't really fit with the Auntie Anne concept. So if you'll excuse me I'll stick with it on my other blog where I answered all the points. See here.

    Thanks for suggestiong me though!


I love comments! Thank you for taking the time to pop by and let me know what you think.
