The Versatile Blogger Award

Spread the love

Imagine my excitement when I found out Mary, from Mary Chronicles, had tagged me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

It isn’t my first nomination, but it is such a great way to ‘introduce’ yourself to other bloggers.


The Rules:
Accept the award by writing your own Versatile Blogger Award blog post
Thank the lovely blogger who nominated you.
Introduce yourself by writing 7 facts about yourself
Finally, nominate 15 bloggers that you think deserve this award and let them know!


Ok, this might be quite tricky, as I was seriously scraping the bottom of the barrel with the first post. I didn’t realise how hard it was to think of 7 facts that are interesting and not boring.

1. I love Christmas.

It is seriously my favourite time of year. Since I live in the Southern Hemisphere, Christmas is in the middle of summer. This means my typical Christmas (when I am home) looks like this: eating a lot of Pavlova and trying not to drown after making ill-advised decisions to swim after eating a huge Christmas lunch. For me, Christmas is sunny and hot. Although, I did enjoy the Winter Christmas’ I had in England.

Christmas time, drinking lots of wine.….that’s how it goes, right? 

2. The Mummy movies are the best.

The first one in particular. It’s so cheesy, but I love it! We all need a bit of cheesiness in our lives.

How is this not funny?

3. I love Hallmark movies.

Like above – the cheese.

4. Talking about cheese, I love cheese.

Give me Gouda, Maasdam, Camembert any day and I will be a very happy girl.

5. I love travelling (pretty sure I wrote about this on my first Versatile Blogger Award thingamabob).

However, travelling is very important to me. It is a great way to broaden your horizons and really get to know who you are. Travelling introduces you to so many experiences! I’ll never forget the time I was in Wellington and I was looking for Lord of the Rings locations on Mt Victoria. Some road workers asked if I was lost, and they offered to give me a lift to the location. I just hopped in with no worries. It’s those things you look back on and laugh about. I also love packing for holidays!

6. Reading is my favourite form of exercise.

There’s nothing quite like giving your eyes a work-out. My favourite book genre is chick lit. I particularly like Prosecco Christmas.

7. Education is very important to me.

As you may (or may not) know, by day I am a teacher. I love to teach, and I love seeing the way kid’s eyes light up when they finally understand something. Seeing them progress is amazing. I would love to work with Educational Charities or become an Education Consultant/Curriculum Advisor. This is one of my favourite TED Talks about education:

And here is another one that I find hilarious:


So, hopefully, this taught you a little bit about me and who I am.
