The Versatile Blogger Award

As the new year dawned and I was preoccupied with my boys in sun and sand, Tiffany from My Peculiar Journey kindly gave me The Versatile Blogger Award for this blog.  I am humbled.  

The Rules for excepting the illustrious Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

Thank the person who nominated you. Tell 7 things about yourself, so that your readers may learn more about you, and nominate 15 other newly discovered bloggers, then let them know you nominated them.

Here are 7 things about myself

1. I love silence.
2. I like to figure stuff out myself before looking at the instructions, instructions are for when things haven't worked out.
3. I play the flute.
4. I read until I fall asleep - every night (and drive my husband insane).
5. I am at peace when I am in the garden with my fingers in the dirt, I love to grow vegetables and local indigenous plants and write about them.
6. I love to create things from scratch
7. I am a naturally messy person, I have to work continuously at being tidy.

And most importantly nominate 15 other newly discovered bloggers.

For the moment I have chosen 13 blogs for various reasons (some are well into their blogging life and I really enjoy what they offer to me and I am sure to many, many others and have not yet received the award, others are fairly new, but I really like what I think that they have to offer) and will choose the other 2 as I find them (if I do).

The last one on the list has stated recently she may not be back this year.  I think that she really deserves the award anyway due to the wonderful blog that she has done and I wish her the best.

Thanks again Tiffany for thinking of my little blog this award :) 


  1. Hello, Meg! Thanks so much for your nomination of my blog! i must admit, I'm a bit new to these things, so I'm not sure what it means, but I'm so glad you think my blog is worth something!

  2. Fleur, Your blog is fab! It is my pleasure! xx Meg

  3. Cool to learn a little about you. Love the instruction bit, so true instructions are only for when you can't figure it out. ;)

  4. Hi Meg, thanks heaps for the nomination. I am away at the beach but have drafted a response. I will upload it as soon as I get home - some time tomorrow-ish. :-)

    1. Hooray! I am so happy! I am looking forward to reading it. Cheers, Meg
