Seven things you never knew about me...!

BaggieAggie receives The Versatile Blogger award!
And, after reading one thing in particular, you'll wish you still didn't, lol!  Seriously, the reason I've bared all is because I'm immensely chuffed to have received The Versatile Blogger award from the lovely Stef at Jaysmonkey.  (Thank you again, Stef!) To accept it, all I have to do is follow a few simple rules, including the mention of seven random facts about me, so here they are!

1. Cutting my nails makes me feel physically sick.
2. I was Miss Scot Meats 1971.
3. My first date with a showman/escapologist involved watching while he was lowered into a lake - in a coffin wrapped in chains.
4. I've almost drowned twice - once when learning to swim in the local river aged 13, and then in a canoeing accident aged 16. 
5. Part of my second date with the showman/escapologist was spent scantily-clad and strapped to a revolving wooden wheel while he hurled knives at me.
6. OH and I were at school together - and met again 33 years later, through Friends Reunited.
7. Drunken sex once involved a visit to A&E the next day - for the (highly embarrassing) removal of an out-of-reach tampon. 

Moving swiftly on from the gruesome image conjured up by No. 7 (!), another rule is that I must list the rules (so those I pass this award to know what to do):
1. Add the award to your blog.  
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you.  
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.   
5. Award to 15 bloggers. 
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog. 

The fifteen fab blogs I've chosen to receive this award are (in random order):

Please do check them out – they’re well worth a look!


  1. Thank you for choosing my blog for one of the awards, I'd better get thinking about random facts about me - not sure I could top yours though!! :)

  3. Wow those facts will take some beating, they made me laugh. Congratulations on your award. I know some of the blogs you've listed and some are new to me so I'm off to check them out.

  4. Thank you so much - like all the others I don't think I will be able to top any of your seven, so will get my thinking cap on and also pass on the list. xx
