The Versatile Blogger Award

Ok so this is totally off topic for me, but you’ve come to expect that from me by now, right? I was nominated in The Versatile Blogger Awards by the lovely Billie, thank you sweetie. This is the first tag/link up I have participated in, like Billie I would love to do more but have very few “blogger friends” to nominate me, massive hint dropped there fellow bloggers!

So, the rules of the tag are:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Share the award on your blog
  • Share 7 facts about yourself
  • Choose 10 bloggers with less than 1000 followers
  • Notify them on social media


I talk so much that I don’t think there are 7 facts about me that most of you don’t know already but i’ll delve into the deep, dark recess of my brain:

  1. I joined the army when I was 18, I loved it and was the fasted girl in my platoon to strip, clean and reassemble an SA80. I went right through basic training before being injured, in the last week, then medically discharged.
  2. Getting married and having babies was never part of my plan for the future, until I met my husband, we were engaged within 3 months and married after 10 months, we have been together 10 years now; despite everyone only saying we’d not last a year!
  3. My husband and I met while we were both training as Scuba diving instructors in Cyprus, we lived in Cyprus twice.
  4. I was born in Kingston Upon Thames, grew up in Stevenage in Hertfordshire and now live in Stockton on Tees in the North East of England.. I have a very southern accent… my children sound very northern.
  5. Since leaving school, with terrible GCSE results, I have gained qualifications in hairdressing, nutrition, pet care, first aid, scuba diving and am currently studying maths, english and accounting.
  6. My long term goal is to live on a farm and be self sustainable, I would love to home school my children but don’t have the confidence and would worry that I am holding them back.
  7. Back in my teenage years I used to watch the filming of Top Of The Pops every Thursday, I’ve seen lots of pop stars perform and met lots of the Eastenders cast too.

I would now like to nominate:
