Yet Another Award!
I’m not sure I deserve all the awards that have been coming my way but I’m not about to refuse them. The latest one, the Versatile Blogger Award, has very kindly been passed on to me by the wonderful Aisha Ashraf of Expatlogue. If you’re not yet familiar with her, you really should check out her writing. I, for one, think she’s brilliant.
And here are another fifteen blogs that I think are worthy of the Versatile Blogger Award (part of the acceptance conditions is to nominate 15 others). I haven’t checked properly so some of them might already be recipients but I’ve tried not to copy from Aisha’s list as that would be inexcusably lazy of me:
The Hand Family in Portugal - an expat family in the Algarve
Read Me - well-written observations of lots of things

My A to Z Challenge – perhaps I’m cheating a little bit here but this is growing into a wonderful collection of posts from bloggers around the world
I’m also supposed to tell you seven things about me so here they are:
1. I really want to go to India.
2. I’ve got a ‘witch finger’ from when I fell off a horse and didn’t go to the doctor about my broken finger until it was too late to stop it from healing crookedly.
3. I used to want a horse and to call it Peter – until I fell off one, that is!
4. I once ran off stage crying because I’d forgotten the words to the song I was supposed to be singing. I was only 10 and the song was in Welsh (which I was still learning).
5. Before my teenage ‘black’ phase, I remember being immensely proud of a pair of bright orange shoes that I had.
6. I hate anchovies and raw onions.
7. I adore cheese.
Phew! That was hard work.
