The Versatile Bloggers Award

It is a great pleasure to have been nominated for this award, and fun too!
I looked it up and this is what it is about:

What exactly is the Versatile Blogger’s Award? It is a way bloggers can support each other and recognize versatile, interesting and helpful blogs.
There are a few rules to follow when you accept the award.

1. Thank the person who nominates you and link back to them in your posts.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to fifteen more bloggers that you enjoy.
4. Contact the people you have nominated.

So! Thank you to Danielle Harris from for nominating me for this award. I love your blog, learning about you and your life. I look forward to getting to know you better too.

Seven things about me:

1 I am ambidextrous, as was my mom! I had an op on my right(ing) arm, but signed cheques with my left. No queries, I was amused!
2 I trained as a Make-up Artist for Film, Television, Photographic and Stage/Ramp. That was fun! We practiced on one another and would go to lunch in whatever make-up we’d practiced. 70-year-old faces with young bodies, shark bite victims, non the worse for wear, clown, witch, model faces. Body art, whatever!
3 My last job was as a qualified Estate Agent. I’d probably still be there, and rich, if not for the accident that put paid to my career.
4 I designed jewellery for a short time, and am re-designing my wedding and engagement rings now. They have taken a beating and stones are loose!
5 I have made furniture, and am hoping to make a storage unit for my office as soon as I find time.
6 I have never left Africa, but have been to Seychelles and Mauritius. Perfection!
7 My husband and I renewed our vows informally after 10 years, and will be doing it again later this year, at 29 1/2 years, before we go on an overseas holiday to Italy!

My Nominees are:
Kate from
Nia from
Mike Hardisty from
Rob from
Danielle from
Jenn from

If you haven’t met, pop in for a visit.
Love Charlene

  1. Congratulations on this award. It’s so exciting to be nominated, and it gives you impetus to write more posts.

    BYW, thanks for your advice about craft projects to do with my small grandchildren. I was all excited to try them, and send you pictures of them with their sticky, doughy hands. BUT my daughter called with the news that they all were sick and couldn’t drive down after all…


    • Thank you, it does indeed make you eager to put words on a page!
      Aw, sorry your Grandies were not able to visit this time. Strangely, mine came for 2 weeks a little unexpectedly. Poor boys arrived with sniffles which has progressed to asthmatic wheezing and coughing, noses like taps, ears infected, and Little K’s blocked up tummy again! Both Grandpa and I have started down the same path too. *sigh*
      I hope yours get to make up for lost time soon, and get to visit you in the very near future! Minus bugs!


  2. Wow I’m honoured to see my name as a nominee, and I thank you for this, but I am going to respectfully decline the offer and I will give you the reason why.. I have a computer program being encoded for me that we will be marketing all over the world…. When this is finished, which will still be a month or so.. I will be unable to blog or write articles as all my time is going to be in marketing, demonstrating and selling, it is going to be a full time job with very little, to no time, for this fun, at which time I’m likely to disappear off the face of the earth… But I am honoured and I thank you but I’m sure there is someone else who would benefit from being nominated…Thanks Charlene…
