Versatile Blogger Award

Wow, I am truly flattered to have been given this award by the lovely Rosemary Gemmell. This is my second award since I started blogging last year, so I am honoured – Thank you!
So, in accepting this award, I need to tell you seven things about me. I will make sure I tell you all seven things that I did not use in my last award…..let me just go and check!
1/ I was, in fact, born Lucy. But when I was about 13/14, after spelling it Lucie for many years, I went to court and legally changed my name by deed-pole. So I am officially Lucie now. Strange, I know, but I feel more like a Lucie than a Lucy – confusing hey? Strange how the mind works.
2/ I am allergic to Pethidine. Luckily, I did not find this out during childbirth, and even though I asked for every drug going I was lucky (??) that my midwife was slow so she didn’t ever get around to giving me anything but gas & air. But at a later stage in my life, when I was diagnosed with Colitis, I had to have a Colonoscopy and they gave me Pethidine to sedate me and my arm swelled like a balloon and a load of huge white lumps formed in the arm they administered it in. It wasn’t serious and I only had to stay in recovery an extra 4 hours until all the swelling went down. 
3/ I love red wine. This probably doesn’t come as a surprise to those of you who either know me personally, or read my blog/FB/Twitter regularly. Funny thing is, I never used to like it until I met my OH. He introduced me to a really good bottle and I’ve never looked back since. I do enjoy white and Rose too, but White normally gives me a headache the following morning so I tend to have white as spritzers.
4/ I am not a great cook. I try, I try very hard sometimes, but I am not a natural in the kitchen. I was terrible before I met my OH, and he is excellent so he taught me a few things and now I can pull my weight in the kitchen, but I’m not great at it and to be honest, I don’t really enjoy it all that much – which is probably why I’m not very good. I do make a mean Spaghetti Bolognaise, though!
5/ I have my signature, for my name as it is at the moment, and I actually have a signature for when (if) I sell any books so that I can sign them (optimistic and maybe a little sad?!) but I don’t yet have one for my married name! Which will happen a lot sooner than me selling any books – priorities anyone!? 🙂
6/ I really feel at home doing my writing. I have flitted between different jobs and professions and trained as many different things in my short life so far, but never before have I felt more myself, than when I am writing. I love it. I loved the feeling I got when I actually finished my first novel. I loved the feeling I got each time the reports/appraisals I had done on the earlier drafts were returned to me and when people say they enjoyed it. I love hearing from people who read my blog and say they enjoy it – I just love being a writer. Although I still kind of cringe when I say I’m a writer as I don’t feel I have earned that title yet, not until I get a contract and someone actually wants to pay to read my book. But I write, and I love it. So I will keep doing it 🙂
7/ I am so incredibly and wholeheartedly excited to be going to the RNA Summer Party this month. I cannot wait to see my friends, meet new friends and party with everyone. The RNA is a fantastic association that has been invaluable to my learning as a writer (eek!) and I would highly recommend anyone embarking on a writing journey, to join up next year. 
Well, there you go. Another seven things about me that you may, or may not, have known. I hope they were interesting to read.
So, I now pass on this award to five blog’s that I feel deserve it. I will pass onto people whom I didn’t pass the other award to – but I have to say all of those previous candidates deserve it too!
Fantastic blogs which I love to read….. Enjoy ladies!
