Thanks for the Award

Thanks TheUrbanMum who nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award. Here is a little explanation from her.

I love TheUrBanMum she has the kind of writing which makes me nod and smile, I love her honesty and her blog posts so pay her blog a visit, she's a great blogger.

The Rules after accepting the Versatile Blogger Award are:

§ Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in the blog post.
§Share 7 things about yourself
Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs.

So I'd like to share 7 things with you all:

1) I love Nelson Mandela as in he is my hero, my god kind of way. I have learnt more from him than from anyone else although I have never met him.

2) I am a qualified trainer. I hold a number of diplomas and certificates and while initially I wasn't sure what I would do with my training certificate, I love the fact that this certificate has got me so far.

3) I buy at least 5 books from St Vinnies a week and read them all. My rule is that I have to buy one book a week that I wouldn't normally choose just so that I can learn something new. I have books in every room of my flat and buying books is my biggest addiction.

4) I have a terrible memory.

5) I love being called banana; it makes me smile every time.

6) I was always an outsider and I have never been more grateful for that as an adult. I love the fact that bookworms and geeks seem to be taking over the world. (Not to mention foodies, food bloggers, craft people ... you name it)

7) I want to live a life of no regrets. But I have a lot to learn and a long way to go.

15 Blogs I highly recommend: (16 actually because one doesn't really count as a blog) - The Sydney Girl - Year of the Cat - News With Nipples - Three Nine Seven - Woogs World - Hyperbole and a Half - okay technically not a blog but I love this site - The Blogess Tell us something good - Annik Skelton
The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks -
