My first blogger award

Well i have been blogging for just over 6 months now and i can't believe all the fantastic sites i was missing out before i entered blogosphere!!!. I also love the fact that people are so so kind and take the time to comment on my posts.  I got a nice surprise the other day when the lovely emma from fragglecat nominated my blog for the versatile blog award..

Now to accept the Versatile Blogger Award the rules are:

1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy

4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.
So now i need to think of 7 things about myself...
1) When i was younger i used to do a lot of swimming and when i was 14 i was ranked in the top 10 in my County.
2) I lost two and a half stone on weighwatchers
3)I am scared of the dark and if hubby is ever away i sleep with the landing light on!!
4) When i am not busy i love nothing more than to put on my cosies and curl up on the sofa with a good chick flick and a bar of chocolate (unfortunately it rarely happen these days).
5)Lillies are my favourite flower and we named our little girl Lili after them.
6)I love cats and have had pepsi my little black and white moggy since we bought our first house 15 years ago.
7)I would love to emigrate to Florida as i love America  We have been 3 times and will be taking Lili next year.  The people are so friendly and everything is bigger and better.

Now if you haven't fallen asleep listening to facts about me i need to nominate 7 blogs.  This is going to be hard as i follow so many and love them all but here goes....
