Versatile blogger awards


How lovely to have received another blog award. This time it was bestowed on me by the lovely Debbie over at Thoughts in Writing.
According to the rules, I must now tell you seven facts about myself. Ok, so here goes...
1. I married my childhood sweetheart, Michael, who I met when I was 16.
2. Although I have no children, my sister has FIVE.... all BOYS!
3. I've lived in Portugal since I was ten years old, but I'm originally from South Yorkshire in England.
4. I'm not bad at speaking Portuguese, but I'm fluent (and very chatty) when I've had a few glasses of wine!
5. I fell in love with books when I was at school... I could't get enough of them! Although I don't read as often as I should now, I can't stop myself from buying them. There's nothing like being surrounded by wonderful books!!
6. I am gluten and lactose intolerant... something I'm just coming to terms with and trying to find tasty alternatives (not easy!)
7. Christmas is my favourite time of year... I'm a winter girl at heart. Probably because I was born on Boxing Day (very nearly Christmas day!!)

Now I get to bestow the Versatile Blogger Award on seven wonderful bloggers...


  1. Thank you so much, Suzy, for honoring us with this award! I'm glad you enjoy our blog and hope you continue to keep returning.

  4. Congratulations on the award. I wonder if you'd ended up with all girls if you had kids?

  5. I've been with my husband since high school as well! Isn't it fantastic? I don't speak Portuguese, but I do speak Spanish!

    Congratulations on your award! Thank you so much for passing it on to me. You are so kind. I'm so flattered! Thank you, sweets!

  6. Congratulations on you much deserved award and a huge thanks for passing it onto me too...whow!Thank you again you are so very sweet and kind. xx

  7. Thanks very much for the acknowledgement, Suzy. Really happy to get this!

  8. Hi, Suzy -- enjoyed your list. Christmas is absolutely my favorite time of year, too, and, like you, I am a winter girl at heart. (Which is not easy since I live in Florida.)

  9. Thanks so much for the award and congrats on receiving it yourself!

    I'm sorry to hear about your allergies. My kiddo had a dairy and soy allergy for the first few years of his life. It's definitely challenging finding foods for an allergy diet. :( Good luck!
