Prizes and awards

I have been nominated for the versatile blogger award and I feel flattered…because I have not really been blogging all that long and don’t know if I have published anything special enough to deserve it.  But I am happy.

I feel a bit like a phoenix rising out of the ashes(maybe a bit too dramatic).  After a really, really awful year in my personal life, things are improving everywhere, I have made some wonderful acquaintances –  even some new friends, I have been offered an opportunity to participate in a further education course at the cost of my country’s government and have found that some family ties transcendent distance and time and others are not worth a second thought.

So I want to thank John Howell  http://johnwhowell.com   for nominating me.

Here are the rules:

1. Display the Award Certificate on your websiteVersatile Blogger Award

2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award

3.  Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers

4.    Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post

5.    Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

The fifteen Bloggers that I have selected are really worth a visit. Some have already

received the award but why not again.

2.  Living abroad for 36 years of my life has contributed immensely to my worldview

3.  I was a terrible tom-boy throughout my childhood

4.  I <<beat up>> two exhibitionists in my twenties

5.  I have taken two CPR classes while my children were young

6.  I have baked every birthday cake of my 3 boys for the past 21 years- all individual creations

7.  I donate blood on a regular basis and am a registered bone marrow donor
