Beckie Has Nominated Me For The Versatile Blogger Award

I have been nominated for THE VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD by Beckie, the creator of Beckie’s Mental Mess, as you can see from her post below:

The Rules

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and include a link to their blog – THANK YOU BECKIE!!!
  2. Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
  3. Select 10 – 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly and nominate those bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Seven Things About Me

  • I have never been to Australia before.
  • I am going to Australia in June to see my Goldfinch.
  • My Grandfather (who died a year ago) was Australian. He was actually from Brisbane.
  • I have an uncle and a brother in Australia, in addition to family I have never met before. My uncle has held office in Australia. My brother spends half of each year in the same city where Goldfinch’s home is.
  • I think I am going to drive myself a little crazy, and all of you a lot crazy, as I count the days until I am with Goldfinch again.
  • It’s going to take so much money to go to Australia, I am going to live on cup-a-soups for the next three months – you think I’m kidding don’t you!
  • I feel so sick with excitement, I think it’s a good job that all I am going to be able to afford is cup-a-soups – do you know Ainsley Harriet has a pretty nice range of cup-a-soups?

Did I ever tell you that Ainsley Harriet stopped me to ask for directions? I was able to help him. I think I remember he responded with a wink and a “thanks darlin”.

  1. Congratulations 🎉🎈 All the best for your visit. But do have something substantial with your soup as three months is a long time just to exist on it. You don’t want to lose too much weight.


    1. I shall also gratefully be accepting all the invites that come my way for dinner at the homes of my friends. I eat out around three evenings a week usually, and most of them dish out belly-busting portions!

    1. Thank you MARIE-CÉLINE
      Cup-a-soups taste better than I remember – it’s years since I have had them. But some of them don’t mix very well, so I find a big clump of undissolved gunk at the bottom of my soup mug! I like Ainsley’s range though. 🙂


  2. Wow, congrats on the nomination. How wonderful that you’re heading to Australia in June. Now, that’s exciting!!

    Funny you mentioned Ainsley Harriet, we’ve just binged watched a series he did called “Ainsley Eats The Streets.” It’s on Netflix here in Canada.

    1. I am so excited about going Glen. When I said goodbye to Goldfinch in December, I thought I was unlikely to see him again. But I wanted to of course. I have been watching my pennies carefully and gradually gathering the money to get myself over there.
