Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Thank you very much to Pam at Travellin' Penguin for nominating me for this award. I don't usually participate in memes & merry go rounds but I enjoy Pam's blog (especially her trips around Tasmania searching for vintage Penguins) so here goes.

Here are the rules for this award:

  •     Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
  •     List the rules and display the award.
  •     Share seven facts about yourself.
  •     Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
  •     Optional: display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.
Well, here are the seven facts about myself.

1. I've been a librarian for 25 years.

2. I used to do Highland Dancing when I was young (I'm sure I could have a go at the Sword Dance, even now)

3. I have almost 1000 unread books on my shelves (I confessed to that just the other day but I have to say I'm closer to the magic 1000 now than I was then).

4. I can't swim (can't see very far without glasses) & have never ridden a bike, probably because I'm very clumsy & would be sure to fall off.

5.  I've become an enthusiastic veggie gardener over the last few years.

6.  I've read Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights & Persuasion at least a dozen times each.

7. I've amazed many people at work by becoming part of the ELearning Team, embracing new technology & proving that I'm more than a 19th century woman in a 21st century world (something a friend often says about me).

I'm not going to nominate favourite blogs. All my favourites are in my blog list on the right >>>>>>
If any of those bloggers see this post & wish to join in, that would be great.


  1. Congratulations Lyn. You are certainly the inspiration behind many of my reading enthusiasms, a well deserved award.

  2. Congratulations. I'm so surprised about the Highland Dancing. I remember my dad making me a couple of wooden swords for my Sword Dancing classes.

    1. I think there are a lot of closet Highland dancers out there! I still have a plate I won (or maybe my sister won it, can't remember) & I use it to put the kitchen plug & washcloth on.
