My Versatile Blogger Award

I'd like to thank Carol Bevitt (Carol's Corner) for awarding me a Versatile Blogger Award. I hadn't had the best of days, so when I checked my computer for the last time before going to bed last night, I found a message from Carol. What a lovely end to the day! I believe I must tell you seven things about myself that you don't know, before passing on the award to seven other people. Here goes!

1. I'd love to write a novel set in the Victorian times. I'm starting some research with a visit to Southwell Workhouse in Nottingham this Friday.

2. I've worked in Riyadh Military Hospital, Saudi Arabia. I looked after tiny poorly babies in the Special Care Baby Unit.

3. I don't usually blow my own trumpet, but I'm a dab-hand at painting and wallpapering!

4. My favourite holiday destination is Amalfi and Ravello on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. It is a magical place which I've visited with my husband several times.

5. My sister, Jennifer, lives in Los Angeles, California. She moved there as a nanny, twenty five years ago. She has settled there with her family and sadly I only see her every 3-5 years. Happily though - I'm visiting her this September!

6. When I was 13, I ran away from home to find Marc Bolan!

7. I'm on the committee of Nottingham Writers' Club, a member of Nottingham Writers' Studio and a member of The Walk Book Club.

I award the Versatile Blogger Award to,

  5. Thank you Pauline and Avril. Boy, was I in trouble when I got back home from heading to London to find Marc!!! We laugh about it now, but think that's the most trouble I got in to when I was a teenager! What was I thinking?!

  6. Thanks for sharing these things, Angela.
    I was a T Rex fan but I only went as far as buying Ride A White Swan and Electric Warrior.

  7. Loved the seven things, Ange, especially the MB one. Lol! x
