New Year Awards

Well last year was pretty good all round, and finished up with my blogging friend and colleague Michael from It Rains…You Get Wet bestowing two awards on me. Not only does Michael run a terrific site, but his support for my own efforts over the years has been immense – for that I thank him unreservedly.

Well, let’s get on with the awards and the attached rules:

This is an excellent chance for me to pass on my thanks to all my readers and to link to and pass on these awards to some most deserving people.

Seven interesting facts about me? The interesting bit is the difficulty here. Let’s see then:

1 I’m able to hold a conversation in four languages (obviously not simultaneously) – English, Irish, Greek & French.

2 My grandfather taught me to ride a pony when I was just four years old.

3 To date, I’ve owned four dogs.

4 The number four seems to have some significance for me!

5 I love rainbows yet dislike rain – go figure.

6 I didn’t learn how to swim until I was 28 years old but moving to Greece and being surrounded by the Mediterranean and Aegean seas took care of that.

7 I’m left-handed. I know, but I’m running out of stuff here!

So that’s that. I hope all those worthy bloggers I’ve nominated get some little cheer from this and that it sets 2013 off to a good start for them.
