My lovely friend Nic (http://givemestories.wordpress.com) has given me the honour of nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Yay! Apparently, this is something that bloggers pass on between themselves and once you are nominated you then in turn nominate some other blogs you find scrum-diddly-umptious. But first, it is tradition that I impart some interesting bits and bobs about myself. Hmm, where to start?
1. I have lived in a rural county called Shropshire, in the West Midlands, England, most of my life but no one outside the Midlands (or even inside it) has ever heard of it so usually I describe my location as either near Wales or an hour away from Birmingham. However as I have just moved in with my boyfriend of 3 years in Gloucestershire, it seems no longer a problem!
2. I am absolutely avid reader, I ALWAYS have a book on the go, currently I am rereading the Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer (an fantastic teen series) to distract from the heavy workload of final year; and I have just finished Jilly Cooper’s Jump! which opened my eyes to the world of horse racing.
3. I’m not sure I like horse racing, I think it may be a bit cruel, therefore when I had an invitation to go to Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day this year, I decided to leave it until I have formed a more concerete opinion.
4. I am a big sop, I am perhaps one of the most empathetic people I know. I cannot stand cruelty or violence in films, tv, real life, books. I winced all the way through the fight scenes in Scott Pilgrim Vs The World and couldn’t even stand watching Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
5. I have just been diagnosed as Coeliac, which kind of explains the lack of posts, but also will explain the new direction this blog will be taking when I continue adding recipes over my Easter Holidays in a few weeks. Being a Coeliac is hard work, and I’m only two weeks in, but more about that another day.
6. I am a very proud member of the Women’s Network at the University of Nottingham (a kind of support network/feminist network working towards equal rights for women students and in the wider community). I recently produced a performance of The Vagina Monologues in aid of V-Day 2012 and our significant proceeds went to the local Women’s Centre.
I think that is enough to whet the appetite for now, if you’d like to know more please ask away in the comments below. My nominates to the VBA will be posted soon.
