I'm back!

I had a decent, if tiring, trip (except for the part where you come across relatives who say nasty things), and Blogger Schedule has worked!
Meanwhile, I received a lovely "welcome back" blog gift - Elle of SimplyCaramelle has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! I'm so thrilled! Thanks ever so much, Elle. Best of all, she's painstakingly researched the history of the award.
Here are the rules for the award, shamelessly filched from Elle's site:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to their site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
I'll begin with seven facts, because I'm keeping the best (nominees) for last.
1. When I was really small, I walked into a wasps' nest. By the time I recovered, I proceeded to thrust both my hands into a beehive.
2. I've inherited a few skin allergies from my mum.
3. I developed a short temper on purpose when I was around eight years old, because all the girls in my favourite books back then had fiery, short tempers (Anne [of Green Gables], George [of Famous Five], Jo and Margot [of Chalet School] and so on). Blame my mum for giving me the books in the first place.
4. In school, I was the nerdy tomboy kid who spent time on recitation, essay writing, debate and so on, and went home to climb trees.
5. I've got Roger Federer's autograph (directly from him at Wimbledon. Woooohooo).
6. My all-time favourite tennis player will always be Monica Seles. If only....
7. The movie The Omen always scares me.

And... the nominees are:
1. Lexii
2. Meesha Kaw
3. Matilly Rose 
4. Kaytlynz

6. Danielle Hughes
