Just over a month ago Experiencing Life – Allie  nominated me for The One Lovely Blog Award, thank you Allie. I haven’t been blogging all that long and all those I follow and follow me are people from around the world that I have never met, but either I like what they have to say and share on their blogs or they do for mine. So here is my award.

These are the rules below, explained by Experiencing Life, for the nominees to follow:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Add The One Lovely Blog Award to your post.
Share 7 things about yourself.
  4. Pass the award on to 15 nominees.
  5. Include this set of rules.
  6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs

Seven Things about Me:
 My life revolves around the one person who makes my life worthwhile, my precious love.
2. I have been involved in photography since year 8 high school (1978) I was the school photographer for 5 years. Then later on after a few jobs I joined the RAAF as a photographer. I did weddings and portraits after I left, but gave that up long ago. I now only own a Canon Powershot.
3. I was very uncoordinated as a child, but then in my late teens became very coordinated and played quite a few sports for a number of years.
4. I am a quiz show junky. I was accepted for a few shows, but moved before I got the call up. Though I have appeared on one show in the UK, that didn’t last long called BrainBox.
5. I was apparently born left-handed, but was changed by my nan. Maybe why I am slightly ambidextrous.
6. I miss living in Brunei where life was simple and relaxed.
7. I want to write a book and get it published. Now I have finished studying time to get cracking.

The Nominees:


Apologies in advance to those who don’t like this kind of thing, it is a good way to get blog traffic and to know other people. Plus I really do like your blog.


This special mid-week photo challenge got me thinking. The aim is to post portraits of yourself doing things that inspire you to blog. So here are a few of my inspirations – cooking, travelling, music and love, enjoy.
