2 things just happened to me!! I came home from work feeling verrrrrry stressed(undervalued by my boss) and thought I would have a quick scan of google reader- and there he was ,thanks to Cat,Jude Law and I lusted loved seeing him,it made me actually relax-I also have a glass of wine,but I'm sure it was Jude!!

Then I went to Robins Nest page and she had nominated me for an award ,my hubby is laughing cos I'm soooo excited-I didn't mention Jude at all...

So now I need to work out what to do with an award!

Definitely a better day for me-not so much workwise, but had a great gym session this morning at 0630 and then the day always feels better.

Versatile: ver-sa-tile [vur-suh-tl] or, especially British, [vur-suh-tahyl]: capable of, or adapted for, turning easily from one to another various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.: a versatile writer.

Word information source:

Here is how the award works:

1. You thank the person who presented you with the award.

2. You tell 7 things about yourself.

3. You award 15 other newly discovered bloggers.

So I would like to thank Robin from Robyn's Nest,I think I've already mentioned how excited and grateful I am!!!

7 things about myself
1.I was born and grew up in Australia- but spent 13 years in Canada where I intially met my husband and we have been back in Australia for 14 years now.

2.I am a nurse- I have worked in ICU, Theatre and I'm currently a Practice Nurse ,working in General Practice.

3.i have 2 teenage kids-Lucas has just finished high school and Emma is 13 years and a little temperamental to say the least.

4.Nearly 3 years ago,my dad was diagnosed with Leukemia,and my mum and I nursed him at home for 5 months until he passed away,and it changed my life...

5.I am post menopausal,and cranky at times-I love being in my high 40's and saying what I feel! Finally..

6.I have always had a weight problem-I lost all my weight 18 years ago with Nutrisystem-like Jenny Craig, and it slowly crept back on over 4 years until I was even heavier than before.

7.I love wine-I keep it in check but need to be ever vigilant about it,and make myself have at least 3 wine free days a week and limit myself to 2-3 glasses on other days.

The other bloggers I would like to nominate are

Cos I admire her ,with her 2 young children, getting the job done!!

Cos I love reading about her mountain biking,and she looks great.

Cos we are of similar age ,and I can so relate to what she blogs

4.Jammy Dancer -
Cos I want to walk on the Brooklyn Bridge!!

Always interesting,another place I would love to visit...

6.Robin Wine Girl-
Not banded yet,but well on the way.

Looking forward to hearing about "toughmudder"

I like to read about inappropriate things your band makes you say..

There are others ,but since this is the longest post ever, I will have to leave you...


  1. I am so glad your day got better (grin); that's what it is all about.

  2. Awww! So glad that Jude made your day! : ) He's yummy.

  3. Aww, thanks for the nomination, sweetie!

    That Jude Law pic put a little pep in my step last night as well. :D

  4. Oh thanks lady!!! You're so sweet! You are actually one of my favorite bloggers to keep up with and I relate to you so much, possibly because I too am a nurse (though now am in administration), and a fellow wine drinky drinker, and in so many ways I relate to your posts. Thanks for the nomination. :-) You can come walk the bridge with me anytime!
