Versatile Blogger Award Tag

Versatile Blogger Award Tag

After being kindly nominated by both Rebecca’s Reviews and Life with KT Kinnes for the Versatile Blogger award (thank you so much, ladies <3 ) I thought I’d better get organised and respond! As most of you know by now, I love these tag posts, they’re always so much fun.

What is the Versatile Blogger Award?

It’s a way of finding out more about bloggers that you may already know and follow, and also supporting other bloggers – win, win. The rules are very simple:

  1. Thank and link the person (people) who nominated you
  2. Share seven facts about yourself
  3. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award.

Seven facts about me

  1. This may be a little TMI to start off with but here goes. Although I’m really quite shy, after three bottles of wine I jumped my husband on our first date. Thank you, Pinot Grigio, we’ve been together for over 20 years now.
  1. Despite what my monthly gardening posts may lead you to believe, I knew nothing about gardening – zero, zilch, nada – until we moved to our current house. I now have a garden and orchard to play with but it’s been a steep learning curve!
  1. I trained as a Beauty Specialist many years ago (make up, waxing, manicures, pedicures, eye/lash brow tinting, facials). To this day I still absolutely love treating people but I hate receiving treatments myself.
  1. I failed my driving test four times before I eventually passed. I shudder to think how much money my poor mother had to shell out for me.
  1. Blondie’s The Tide is High was the first single I ever bought – how cool is that?
  1. I’m not scared of mice or birds (having rescued far too many from our cats over the years) but spiders on the ceiling above my head at bed time will send me into a panic if my husband isn’t around to remove them.
  1. Coming up with seven facts has been really hard because I don’t think I’m that interesting (for real, I’m not just saying that) but here’s my last: I’m a very, very, very lucky girl.

Hi, I love reading these posts, yes to Pinot and I would never have guessed about the gardening, it’s amazing how a new house can inspire new interests.

Lisa Dimaline

Cannot stand mice birds or spiders definitely frightened of all! I love that you are trained in beauty do you still do treatments now? I love these posts & thank you ? for the nomination


Thank you for tagging me, will try and do this at some point!
I love the mug in your header photo ??.

He he, great post Lisa! Your first fact made me laugh as I was exactly the same, although I don’t think the wine was that posh! I’m petrified of mice, Simba brought one in the other day and it scared the life out of me, I don’t think I’ll ever get used to them heh. Four driving attempts isn’t too bad, I passed on my third. Driving tests are hard! Great answers, I enjoyed reading them <3

Awh loved reading your facts Lisa, especially how you met your husband hahaha! Congrats on being together for 20 years! xx.

Thanks for the nomination! I love beauty but hate getting treatments too. I’m either paranoid I’m going to react to something or thinking something along the lines of ‘you’ve been touching me at least 5 minutes now. Please stop’

When I was in college (16/17) my first year English teacher was newly qualified and only 21. He once told us that he failed his test TEN times before he passed and his parents paid for all of it. No number of fails has managed to shock me since ?


Kirsty Maynard

Aw great post! I loved reading your facts. I passed my driving test on the third time and it cost a fortune! Unlike you I’m actually quite scared of mice haha! x

Bethany Jane

I loved reading these facts, you’re much more interesting and entertaining than you give yourself credit for haha!
Also I am cackling at the pinot grigio story, it’s a bit similar to how I got together with my own husband so I definitely appreciate it.
Also buying Blondie is a lot cooler than me – my first single was definitely Spice Girls haha.

I love these posts because you get to find out a little more about the blogger. Can’t say I’m a fan of big spiders either… I slept in the living room once because there was one in my room & I lost it ? xxx

Ms Via

Lovely post Lisa. Enjoyed reading it. I am not scared of spiders in general but the big ones I am. When I see them I feel why do they even exist. 🙂 Thanks for tagging me I will do the post soon.

Jordanne / Thelifeofaglasgowgirl

I must say, I am the same after a few bottles of wine…. I gain so much confidence and don’t mind making a move haha. Spiders creep me the hell out as well, I just can’t stand them at all haha. It’s been great reading more about you.
