One Lovely Blog Award

Fizzi-Jayne makes surprised me with her nomination for the One Lovely Blog Award: me! Thank you! It has been fun to read her blog post about the award, including the facts about her.
So what is the One Lovely Blog Award? Well, bloggers nominate newer fellow bloggers for the most part. There are exceptions since, obviously, my blog has been around for a long time now. The goal of the award is to bring attention to those blogs we think are simply lovely. It is a way to acknowledge these bloggers and their work in their little slice of the interwebs.

  Now, in order to accept the award, the nominated blogger must follow these rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you & link back to them in your post
  • Share seven facts about yourself
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers for the award

The facts:

  1. I have lived in 3 different countries and also have 3 native languages, one of which I have nearly completely forgotten now.
  2. I am a doctor, but not the medical kind.
  3. I love to cook, but am rubbish at baking except when it comes to bread, which I bake regularly to avoid the shop-bought kind.
  4. In my yearbook at school in Germany, people said about me that I would one day live in the UK - and here I am!
  5. I spent my gap year working with severely mentally challenged adults.
  6. I got my driving licence at 20 and never drove again.
  7. I am a published author.
My nominations are as follows (many may not respond as they are very busy and specialised, but I want to at least mention them as they are fantastic bloggers):

Blue Eggs and Tea
Plutnonium Muffins
Durch das wilde Kinzigtal
Woollen Wilderness
Noget Uldent
Stitched Together


  1. Thanks for the nomination :) What a fun concept. And interesting to learn something new about you as well, I didn't know most of these facts.

    1. You're welcome!

      I like reading people's facts too because we don't often see everything about their lives, so things that were never mentioned before in their blogs give us a nice glimpse into their lives.

  2. Thank you for accepting! Love your facts. I can't wait to check out your nominees and read their blogs x

  3. Thank you for the nomination. Life is crazy at the moment, so I won't promise to join. But I'll keep it in mind and I can't wait to check out the people I don't already read :)

    1. You're welcome, Pia. This is a great way to find new blogs to read, which is fun, especially when the nominies are not all about knitting or even crafts. I have a bit of everything in my list.
