Versatile Blogger Award

Pete Denton, over at, has been sweet enough to nominate me for a Versatile Blogger Award! As I understand it, the rules for accepting this award are as follows:

1. Thank the award-givers and link back to them in your post. Done.

2. Share 7 things about yourself. See below.

3. Pass this award along 15 or 20. Done.

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award. Done.

So- 7 things about me you might not already know….

1.  I used to do a lot of bellydancing, including a couple of solos. Nothing gives you a bigger adrenalin rush than standing up in front of 350 strangers in a sequinned bra.

2.  I’ve lived on three continents, and traveled to 32 countries. Hope to add a few more!

3.  I prefer to make up recipes than follow them from a book, which is sometimes wonderful, sometimes appalling, but always unique.

4.  The only sport I can regularly watch is cricket, although I might be willing to make an exception for baseball if it were on TV here.

5.  I am a highly skilled, Class-A procrastinator. No job too big to put off.

6. I like to draw and paint, but don’t get enough time.

7. I don’t much like the colour black, and will only wear it when I have to.

I’d like to nominate the following bloggers for this award. They are listed in no particular order, and are all great sites. Please go an check them out! 🙂

    • I wouldn’t worry about it too much – great advice there from me, who tossed and turned all last night thinking about it!
      It is a nice way to stay in contact with people though.

  1. Thank you for the nomination. I can’t wait to write my post about receiving the award again. I won’t let you down! By the way, I have a weird obsession with belly dancing, and it is so cool that you’ve actually performed in front of people! Go you!

    • Thanks! It was nerve wracking, but I came off stage absolutely beaming. I’d post a picture, but it’s too embarrassing. If you have a chance, definitely give it a go.

      • I definitely will. I think I might take the chance to sing in front of my fellow students on my trip in Ireland. Nothing says Irish like singing in a pub. So, I will attempt to do my ancestry honor while I’m there. 🙂

      • I don’t know how much I will have of those. They say it tastes the best coming from Ireland, so I will keep my hopes high. If not a couple shots of whiskey will cure my nerves. 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the award and many many thanks for the nomination! What an honour! Now, I’d also like to confess that I, too, am a highly skilled, Class-A procrastinator. High five! 😉

  4. Thank you for accepting the nomination. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog and you deserve the nod 🙂

    You’ve done a lot of travelling. 32 Countries is a lot to get around. And I have been known to watch a LOT of cricket. It’s good to write in front of!

    Happy blogging.

    • Thank you! 🙂 Well, that 32 was spread over a decent period of time – they are not all places I’ve visited as an adult.
      Personally, I find the cricket a great soundtrack in summer if you are working in the garden – haven’t tried to write in front of it!

  5. Hello Kasia!

    I cannot tell you what a delight it was to receive your nomination for a Versatile Blogger award – the blushing cheeks!

    I have been terribly remiss in not following the rules (or even acknowledging your note – egad) but intend to promptly. My beloved blog is a small part of my busy life and the other parts have been quite demanding lately! I’ll be back soon and again, thank you so much!
