The Versatile Blogger Award & Seven Titbits

Thank you to the lovely Donna Hole has passed 'The Versatile Blogger' award on to my blog.  I'm feeling very chuffed about it.  *Whispers* I'm loving the green on my blog actually.  On accepting this award, I'm to share seven interesting things about myself, and pass the award to fifteen bloggers who think I'm...fantastic?  Not sure about that rule, that would be presumptious of me.   *Blushes deep beetroot* How does one gauge that?   I have decided to pass this to bloggers whose recent musings and comments have made me laugh, smile, maybe even get a little teary, and pondered awhile.


Seven Titbits About Moir:

1.  Books are my addiction, I'll happily wander into a bookstore minding my own business when....well you know the rest.   * Glares warily at the 3 for 2 sale stickers.*
  
2.  I love Penhaligon's perfumery, it's one of my favourite shops in London.  Beautiful bottles for beautiful scents.

3.  I started my first WIP in April this year and have written over 100,000 words.... oh yes, my dear lady...the edits await.

4.  I love saying random words just because I love the sound of them.  Try these, say them out aloud - Herbaceous Borders,  Soliloquy,  Salacious   *deep sigh* I could be sometime here.

5.  Friday nights are sacred, I spend them on the sofa - watching DVDs, reading books, writing and ooh blogging!

6.  Peony roses make me smile.

7.  Freshly baked chocolate souffles are the work of the devil...she says licking her lips.  I would probably jump you for one of those.  

 **I am sending the award on to the following Lovelies **

Lola Sharp @ SharpPen/DullSword

  13. Book stores attract me like the old "5 and dime" did kids. Even when I make no purchase I love browsing through the stacks. And the chocolate souffle - well, just don't get between me and it.

    Nice #4. Words are fabulous. I recommend omphaloskepsis (the art of study one's navel to predict one's future). That's my personal favorite.
