Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger Award badge

Blimey! Thank you to Stephy at stephysweetbakes for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award. It was a lovely surprise and awards are always a great opportunity to support and find out about other bloggers.

To accept the award, I have to:

1. Thank the person who nominated me

2. List 7 random facts about me.

3. Nominate other bloggers for the award

Seven facts about me:

1. I get ridiculously excited by those milestone badges WordPress gives you. You know the ones: when you get X number of likes or followers. I think this is a sad indicator of how devoid of real excitement my life is! ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. My husband and I have owned the box set of Breaking Bad (the whole show) since September last year and have yet to watch any of it. Admittedly, we have just finished Seasons 1 and 2 of House of Cards, but I would have thought we would have made a start on BB by now!

3. Linked to number 1 above, doing the JuNoWriMo writing challenge recently made me realize I’m more goal orientated than I thought…

4. That said, I’m not very competitive. Particularly not at games. I think this all comes from my high school years. Everything was incredibly competitive and I think it got old.

5. When I lived in Spain I joined a new book club in the hope it would force me to speak Spanish and improve my fluency. I was lucky that it also helped me meet a group of great people. I really miss those guys.

6. I am pretty fluent in Spanish. I wouldn’t say I’m bilingual because I think you have to grow up with a language to achieve true bilingualism and I only started to learn Spanish when I was 21.

7. It turns out I’m useless about thinking up random facts about myself! What else can I say… I’m a chocolate addict and admire the willpower of anyone who can open a bar, eat one piece and then put the rest away for another time.

I would like to nominate 2 great blogs that combine two of my loves: books and baking:

1. Anne at booksbakingandblogging. Check out her fantastic chocolate butterscotch bars recipe.

2. Charley at booksandbakes1. Here’s a favourite of mine: chocolate butterfly cakes with buttercream icing.

I hope you’ll be able to take part, even if it takes you a while to get round to it – like me ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you again to Stephy. Her blog is filled with beautiful, delicious bakes like chocolate almond kahlua cake with kahlua buttercream – check it out!
