The Versatile Blogger Award

Thanks again to Emma, Sally and Patricia, who nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  I'm still really pressed for time so I think the links to 15 further blogs may have to wait..  Nevertheless I CAN post seven facts about myself that may amuse (or horrify!) you...
#1 - I have a ridiculous passion for red checked pyjamas.  I have multiple pairs and have to be physically restrained from buying more.  They are so cheerful and snuggly!

#2 - I am the eldest of two sisters.  We are both Music teachers and we live two miles appart.  Mum cannot tell us appart when we are talking on the phone.

#3 - I play the harp (and piano and violin).  Basically I had a very serious classical music education.

#4 - I colour-code my clothes in my wardrobe (how OCD is THAT??!)

#5 - My 'car of my dreams' when I was little was a white TR7.  In my 30s I owned a red one.

#6 - My dream house is a 19th century house with an 'in and out' drive (see above).  Sadly, I doubt that I'll ever have enough money to maintain it - even if I could afford the mortgage!

#7 - If I could live anywhere in the country, I'd probably stay right where I am!


  1. Hi Jan - thanks for joining me. I have a 50 mile commute to school (round trip) and colour code my wardrobe - play the cello and piano badly and would LOVE to play the harp x

  2. Interesting facts. I'm with you on the pyjamas, they're so snuggly.

  3. Jan! That's great to discover so much about you!
    The best- the fact that given the chance to be anywhere, you'd choose to be exactly where you are.
    Isn't that what it's all about? Finding happiness where we're at....

  4. I colour code my clothes too Jan. Thanks for sharing your seven
    interesting facts about you.

  5. Have enjoyed reading your 7 facts about you. How lovely to live exactly where you want to be. I try to hang matching colours close to each other in the wardrobe and have drawers with different colours in mainly so I don't mix black with navy blue on a dark morning:)
