The Versatile Blogger Award
My thanks to Suzie Tullett, who nominated my Blog for this Award. But the first condition is to reveal seven random facts about myself. *gasp* Can I admit to all this?
1 As a small child I used to fill my pockets with butterflies, grasshoppers, any insect I came across.
2 I love slipping out for a walk in the dark - it feels more private.
3 Once I walked into a restaurant and an unknown length of time later realised I was still standing in the doorway, open mouthed, feasting my eyes on the most attractive profile I had seen in years...it was Alan Rickman. [have used that experience in a novel]
4 I adore Freddie Mercury's songs. To me they're like silk and velvet.
5 My hobby is metallic embroidery. That means stitching down lots and lots of gold thread, pearls, beads and sequins to make a picture. I like it to shimmer, gleam, shine and sparkle.
6 When I'm writing a novel, I get to feel quite ill when the characters revolt against what I want them to do. And then it's so hard to say goodbye to them when there is no more to tell, that I have to arrange some outings to break away from their company.
7 I love flowers of all kinds but prefer to keep them growing in the garden, not cut them and bring them inside.
Now to nominate Blogs that I recommend for this Award.
