I’ve been awarded a couple of Blog Awards!

Lovely Blog Award

Just as I was starting to wonder what to blog about now the Author Blog Challenge is over, the lovely Becky Fyfe has awarded me a couple of Blog Awards.

The first is the Lovely Blog Award, and the second is the Reader Appreciation Award.

Thank you so much Becky, this was a lovely surprise and a lovely start to the day.

Just as Becky did, I’ve combined the rules of the two awards (I don’t know what the individual rules are, so this makes things easier…), so here are the rules for recipients:

    • Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post
    • Share 7 things about yourself
    • Nominate six to ten blogs you admire
    • Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know

Reader Appreciation Award

And the lovely badges are the images in this post.

Seven things about me:

1. One of my favourite cafe drinks is a chai latte – and I’m really fussy, it has to be just right or I can’t drink it.

2. I don’t like shoe shopping, and I don’t understand those who do…

3. I have a HUGE pile of books beside my bed waiting to be read, and I buy more books before they are read, only adding to the pile.

4. All the overseas travel I have done, I did before I was 8 years old!

5. I have a wonderful sister and two amazing brothers, and the cutest three nephews in the World, and I’m grateful we are all close and get together regularly.

6. I have so many story ideas swirling in my head, I often wish they would stop bugging me so I can finish the story I’m currently writing!

7. My preferred exercise is walking, and I can’t do that right now due to a foot injury.

Here are seven people I’m giving the award to (Becky already gave it to a couple of people I wanted to award it to!):

Wonderful blogs, be sure to check them out.
