One Lovely Blog Award

Well blow me down! Your TWO-TIME MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD WINERRRRRRRRRRR has now become a TWO-TIME ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD WINNERRRRRRRRRR also. Combining all awards thus far, that makes me a SIX-TIME BLOG AWARD WINERRRRRRRRRRR!!! Is anybody tiring of my wrestler style introductions of myself yet? Get used to it. Haha.

So two of my favourite fellow bloggers; Mosaicca aka Charlotte and Keri.L; nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. If you aren’t following them then I suggest you click the links and do so. Their writing makes for great reading. Charlotte is always good for an in-depth discussion and doesn’t hold back with her comments (something I really advocate). Keri has supported me greatly from the early days and has selflessly shared my posts on Facebook since we started following one another. Words can’t express how much I appreciate her doing so. My profuse thanks to you both!

THE RULES

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and leave a link to their blog.
  2. Post about the award
  3. Share seven facts about yourself
  4. Nominate, at the most, 15 people
  5. Tell your nominees the good news!!!

So at this juncture, I suppose I’d better hit you all with seven facts about myself. And no; I am not doubling up on facts because I was nominated twice. Buckle up!

  1. My birthday is the start of the new tax year in the UK. What an exciting date to have my birthday!
  2. My dream is to retire in Italy and own a vineyard. I don’t know the first thing about producing wine, nor do I speak Italian, but I certainly love to drink wine and I can learn Italian I suppose.
  3. I passed my driving test in Novemeber 2005 with only one minor fault. I did my lessons for longer than necessary because I wouldn’t take my test until I knew I was ready, despite my instructor saying I was ready for a number of months beforehand.
  4. I have a genuine loathing for people when I’m out in public, but am really overly courteous with them too. My desire not to be rude overrides any irrational distaste I feel.
  5. My friend Adam and I had a weird obsession with names we deemed funny back when I was in school. We compiled a list of ‘Jeff Names’ that was about a hundred strong filled with names that amused us. I still find myself amused by certain names to the day. Keith is one. And Ken. Why they amuse me I have never been able to figure out.
  6. Apple is my most despised brand. The mere sight of that stupid logo and words prefixed with an ‘i’ makes my blood boil. They’re nothing but a fashion accessory. Any true techie will tell you that their products are dreadful. News flash: most fashionable doesn’t mean best!
  7. If I won a massive jackpot on the Euromillions lottery (let’s say £100m for example) there are three things I would do immediately. First, I would buy Stockport County and bankroll them back into the Football League and beyond. Second, I would buy a derelict building, do it up and turn it into a nightclub whereupon I would hire Shaun Lever as the resident DJ and attempt to coax Stu Allan into doing a once a month special. I’d have to hire my mates Jason Formosa and Stephen Bolton as DJ’s too because they’re class! Third, I would start a record label and book publishing company that run under the one identity. My two passions simultaneously. It’d be awesome. I’d probably end up bankrupt because I’m handling too much at once, but I’d have fun along the way!

Next up is where I have to nominate fifteen people. As usual, I will ignore that number and nominate as many as I can handle. I think I’ll forgo the usual ritual of giving  reasons as to why I’m nominating too because I have other writing to be doing and I’m impatient to get on it. Dedication kids! It’s what turns dreams into reality!

Okay, so I nominated fourteen. Not far off fifteen in the end. I’ve nominated you all because your blogs stand out above all others to me. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy the blogs of others, but these fourteen people post consistently good material and deserve a little recognition for it. Congratulations to you all.

That concludes this acceptance post from your SIX-TIME BLOG AWARD WINERRRRRRRRR…PAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUL.EEEEEEEEEEEEE.BAAAAAIIIIIIIILEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYY! *Corny entrance music hits, I walk up the ramp all cool and stop at the top to raise my right arm victoriously, the crowd pops wildly, I carry on and walk into the back where a nice cold bottle of Moretti awaits me*

      1. I make a point of not nominating back personally as it’s a bit mean making somebody answer all the questions and stuff again, but that’s just me. I’d have nominated the two people who actually nominated me otherwise. I might create my own awards at some point because who wouldn’t feel proud getting an award from me, right? Haha

      2. Well these awards had to be made up somewhere didn’t they? I might do it for when I’ve been blogging a year. Call it something shit like ‘The Anniversary Award’. Or something stupid like ‘The Keith Chegwin Two-Thumbs-Up Award’ (something I have actually awarded in the past)

      4. Keith Chegwin is a proper C-List celebrity. The kind you’d see in Christmas pantomimes.
        I’ll think of something. Or not. Whatever. I’m having far too much fun writing at the moment. Three different stories on the go and I even typed up my next top five blog in one sitting yesterday. Head of steam!

      5. You’re a slacker? There’s so many posts I haven’t read that I need to catch up on. Admittedly, part of that is because I’ve been too busy writing. There’s certainly no rush for you to do it from my end anyway 🙂
        I got it. The tension is hitting 11 at least in that room right now 😂

      6. I definitely had a sly grin on my kisser as I was typing the bit that preceded yours. I love how much of an utter bellend Ryan is 😂 It’s great fun having a main character who’s a bastard rather than a good and wholesome type

      7. Living vicariously through you characters is a great benefit of writing. Maybe next I’ll be a down on her luck stripper with a heart of gold and super powers, or a nun who wants to fly helicopters. Who knows!

      8. I think it’s definitely a benefit to try and get into the mind of the character you’re writing and imagine you are them. I find jumping into the psyche of bad people easier somehow. I think the addition of conscience and humanity makes things trickier

      1. But you do work hard… and you are all around a lovely person… which in itself can be an effort sometimes… so why then would you not be worthy of it? You are clearly not a vain person… even so it’s ok to take a compliment once in awhile 🙂☺️

      2. I’m too judgemental of myself to find myself worthy of any praise. There are tonnes of better writers than me on here, present company included. I’ve got work to do to improve, but I feel like I am doing 🙂

      3. Well then let me assure you that you have no need to be so judgmental of yourself… I feel ya though, I often feel the same about myself… (though thank you for that smooth compliment 😉) but others can see what we don’t sometimes… and from my view you are worthy of praise 😊 keep working at it and you will continue to get even better – but at the same time you already write to a very high standard… and I will continue to point that out to you if necessary 😊

      4. As long as people are genuinely enjoying what I do and want to see more of it then that’s really all that matters to me. I’ve seen other writers on here and I know I’m technically not as good as others, but you could technically throw a javelin better than anybody else. It doesn’t mean you’ll throw it furthest though. Eloquence and use of big words doesn’t mean the content becomes better. I’ll take a good story over a well-written one any day

      5. Well, Mr Bailey stop fighting me about it! You have well written AND good stories! ☺️ I think it is evidenced by the followers you are gaining and the comments you get that we all are genuinely enjoying what you do 😊☺️
