Very Inspiring Blogger Award
First off, this post should bring me out of my lazy holiday ‘slump’ with my last blog post being almost 2 weeks *shameful* ago! And secondly thank you to the inspiring Alex of Alex’s Cycle whose blog is always filled with lovely cycling holiday snaps amongst other things bike-related for nominating me. You can read his ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’ post here.
So onto the rest of the post – I basically just have to tell you 7 things about myself and then nominate 7 other bloggers who I would like to give this award to. Okay, first-off, let’s just get this out there. 7 is a random number. Does anyone else feel this? I would have preferred 5, 8 or 10… (the list goes on), anyway sidetracking, I can’t go around changing things so I’m just going to get started.
1. I enjoy watching Top Gear (when they are not being obnoxious!) and my favourite ‘dreamy’ car is an Aston Martin DB9.
2. Three things that annoy me are overcooked vegetables or pasta (once it’s past ‘al dente’ texture, it kind of goes a bit lifeless), when people bite their nails, and bad spelling/grammar.
obsessively a little moderately quite neat and appreciate lists. I also like to plan things a lot, some have told me it’s called overthinking, but you know, each to their own!
4. I am really good at remembering car number plates and still remember that of our first ‘family’ car which was a white Vauxhall.
5. I have donated blood five times.
6. Most Saturday mornings at 9am I can be found at the start of a parkrun (a free timed 5km every week, now international!) and have amassed a total of 50 runs to date.
7. I have kept a diary/journal since I was 13 years old writing occasional entries about things I want to remember or events that made me think a lot.
So that’s my seven random facts about me that no doubt is not very interesting to read but now in turn I would to nominate the following bloggers to receive the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’.
- ‘My Three Sons’ written by Samantha Hines has some very interesting and thought-provoking blog posts
- ‘The Crazy Life of a Med Student’ is pretty self-explanatory and provides inspiring posts from an experienced medical student
- ‘SethSnap’ is a lovely photography blog which I always enjoy flicking through
- ‘Girl on the River’ is a blog I discovered recently since joining the university rowing team written by a ‘pint-sized rower’ as she calls herself
- ‘Take Up Thy Stethoscope and Walk’ documents the experience of graduate-entry medicine
- ‘Weekly Blog from a Clinical Years UK Medical Student’ generally does weekly posts which I always look forward to reading
- ‘Skinny Runner’ is a blog about running with race reviews of events in the US.
Do go and check them out and hopefully they will be doing their corresponding blog-posts soon. Toodles for now!
