I Got Nominated For The Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award

Wow, I’m Shocked and Excited all at the same time!

Shocked because I have been blogging for only a short amount of time, and excited because, well who doesn’t get excited about an award when they’ve started something new!

I’ll go back to me starting, I’ve actually wanted to start a Blog for years, but as always life takes over, things get in the way and you forget for a while. In my case , five kids in 8 years and up until 2 years ago I had an extra 4 children living with me too, I’m like the child collector only not the creepy kind like the dude from Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang!

I would like to Thank Melanie who blogs over at Frasers Fun House, who nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award on 9th January 2018, She has a lovely parenting blog with children’s book reviews, fabulous days out and great gift ideas! I am so grateful to be nominated after only 2-3 weeks into my blogging life. Go check her out!

So, what is the Versatile Blogger Award?

Blogger awards are a fun way for bloggers to show appreciation for other bloggers and their content. Blogging is harder work than it may look like from the outside, so it means the world when we are shown in any way that we are appreciated! The Versatile Blogger Award celebrates high quality, unique, and loving content. When nominated, the blogger can choose to accept the nomination and pass it on to 15 bloggers that they believe deserve a nomination as well.

The rules to accept this award are simple:

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link their blog. There are millions of blogs out there, and somebody chose yours!

2. Nominate 15 bloggers to keep spreading the appreciation.

3. Share 7 facts about yourself.

So here goes: 7 facts about me, Laura from Directly Laura

1.I’m currently in house number 11 in 10 years, and due to move again very soon! And no I don’t have an obsession with collecting houses to go with the collection of children. haha! Just the joy’s of renting and not finding a decent enough house/landlord!

2. I’m a procrastinator and very good at putting off the things that NEED to be done!

3. My Favorite food is Chicken & Pasta – adventurous I know!

4. I’m more of an explorer than a beach bandit on holiday’s, I prefer walking around seeing sights than sitting on a beach in the heat. My Pale skin will vouch for me haha!

5. I get bored easily and have to keep myself busy – even if it’s not productively busy!

6. I’m a Gemini.

7. I had a Winnie the Pooh bedroom until I moved out of my parents house. 🙂

So there we have it, that’s a few facts about me… I’m sure you’ll learn more about me soon!

I would like to nominate the following people & Their Blogs:

Hello Bexa


The Spicy Bean

Booking Good Reads

Jenny In Neverland

Always Opinionated Girl

Love Hayley Beth

Sweet Allure

The Life of a Glasgow Girl

    Great post Laura was lovely to find out a bit more about you. I am the same when it comes to holidays I have the palest skin and just try to a crisp if I lay on the beach or by the pool. Would much rather be up and about seeing things !

  10. Congratulations on your nomination, I can see why you got it after such a short time blogging, you have such a friendly writing style, it’s like talking to a friend 🙂 I find myself always needing to be doing something too and your comment about not being the creepy type of child collector had me in giggles.

    Agreed, now I do love the beach, but I would much rather see sights rather than lay around all day long. Congrats on being nominated.

    I can’t believe you’ve moved house 11 times in 10 years. Wow. I hope you find a nice home so your next move would see you staying longer. Thanks for sharing 7 random things about you. It is always refreshing to learn more about the person behind the blog.

    So fun learning about other people. So I really enjoyed this post. Hey, it sounds like you might be what is called orange temperament in true colors. Check it out. 🙂

    If so, you and I share the same temperament and like to keep things moving in life. 🙂

    11 times 10 years moving is a lot. Totally with you on point 4 too. I’m more of a sightseer.

      Too much in my opinion, but there was only one maybe two places I really liked in that time and that felt like home! 😔 sightseeing is always better on holidays otherwise what is the real point of travelling to different places? 😊


  24. briannamarielifestyle · February 1

    I love chicken and pasta! Chicken is probably my favorite food 🙂
