The HTML has defeated me!
Anyway, here first of all is the Versatile Blogger Award -
Thanks go first of all to Kate from MeMyBooksandI - http://memybooksandi.wordpress.com for giving me the award. Me, My Books and I is a great book review site for contemporary and chick-lit books mainly and one of my favourites.
The rules of this award are:
Thank the person who gave you this award, and include a link to their blog.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. If it’s a bit of a task to list 15, and I don’t want you to feel being nominated is a burden, but mention as many as you can – 8 or 10 is fine. List them, and you might like to include a link to the sites, and let them know that you’ve nominated them.
And tell the person who nominated you seven things about yourself
Ok, 7 things about me
1) I speak 5 languages and keep trying to learn new ones, but have never gotten to grips with German
2) I love elephants, pandas, sea horses and beluga whales
3) I have a major crush on Rupert Penry Jones - only discovered in the past 2 weeks! I have a lot of Spooks and Persuasion to catch up on.
4) I have visited 45 countries at last count
5) The first record I have ever bought was The Smurf Song
6) I ran with the Queens Relay Baton for the Commonwealth Games (kinda like the Olympic Torch) , when I was a teenage athlete
7) I am really clumsy and am constantly covered in little bruises and say 'Ow!' a lot
I would like to pass this award on to the following people, whose blogs I read as regularly as I can

I'm sure I will have missed some people out, but my brain is now mush from all the attempted HTML nonsense.
Well done on great blogs and hope you have an excellent weekend - sun is coming out in Glasgow! Sooz
PS for those of you who are not technically minded, use the long links - don't fight with the HTML. You will be fizzing mad by the end of it!
