Paul Skidmore, Versatile Blogger

The Versatile Blogger award is similar to the Liebster Award which I have previously been nominated for in that it is awarded by bloggers to other bloggers, to promote upcoming blogs and introduce people to the blogging scene (I think I could have said the word blog a few more times then?). There are three rules to follow when receiving the award:

  • 1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • 2. Share 7 fun facts about yourself
  • 3. Nominate your favorite up and coming bloggers for the award

7 fun facts about me (Yes I actually got to 7!)

So first up are 7 fun facts about me (does anyone have any idea why it's 7? Turns out I'm actually really dull and was struggling to get two fun things :p)

1. I am double jointed in my left hand index finger - Not sure how I found out about this, but basically I can bend my finger the whole way back to my hand - Always good to freak people out with!

This is not normal

2. I am only 5ft2 tall but my favorite sport is Basketball! Unless I have my full-on beard, I often get mistaken for a child, so people often snigger when I say I love Basketball - I'm pretty decent to be fair and have a mean 3 point shot!

Playing Basketball on a cruise ship!

3. I have three Kidneys (Not like in a Steak and Kidney pie); two of my own which are now pretty much useless and shriveled up like a couple of prunes, and one transplanted Kidney (I'm greedy).

4. I have never broke a single bone in my body or even had a fracture! My friends would be falling around me with broken limbs like scenes from a war film, but not me, I was like an unbreakable piece of steel ^__^

5. The first time I travelled abroad was at the age of 10 in 1996 (Jesus Christ that's 18 years ago!!!). It was a family holiday to a place called Montendre in France - We went with a big group of my parents friends and had an amazing time, I learnt to fish for the first time here.

6. My favorite meal is my mother's concoction of Chicken, Bacon and Rice, in a sauce with Onions and Peppers etc - It's not like any dish I've really come across before, not quite a Chinese or an Italian, almost hovering in-between, but its gorgeous!

7. I have an addiction to Original Lucozade (The red bottle) which stems from my time in hospital when I drank it all the time to try and put weight on (Don't worry I have healthy teeth and only have a couple of drinks a week!).

Ahhhh perfection in a red bottle

My nominations

So that's a little bit about me, perhaps I am more interesting than I first thought? I would like to nominate Hannah from Eat Sleep Breath Travel, and Kate from This Could Lead to Anywhere - Two travel bloggers who I follow and have great material, I look forward to your articles :)
