On The Map At Last

I was surprised and delighted to be honoured by a nomination from Labellestudio for the Versatile Blogger Award:


Thank you so much, Labelle – and congratulations on being nominated yourself for the award 🙂 You deserve it!

Now, according to the VBA rules, I’m supposed to nominate 15 other blogs for this award. So, in no particular order, the nominees are:

Help! I Live With My Italian Mother-in-Law

Views and Mews by Coffee Kat

Picking Up A Hitchhiker

Rottin’ in Denmark

Crazy Train to Tinky Town

Fifty Year Project

Beauty is a Sleeping Cat

The Daily Norm

Not Quite Old

Rambling1on’s Blog

Views from the Couch

Le Monde de Shahlimare

It’s All From HaShem

Before anyone starts counting – I know that’s only thirteen…
I warmly recommend that you find the time to visit them all. I’m sure you won’t regret it.

Finally, I’m supposed to tell you seven things about myself. So – once again, in no particular order, here are some earth-shattering facts about Me 😉 .

1) If I were to be shipwrecked on a desert island – or sent on an extended mission to a space station – the book I would choose to have with me is J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”.

2) My favourite colour is royal blue.

3) I am very judgmental. Less so than I used to be, I think, but still guilty.  However, if you follow this blog regularly, you might have already noticed that 😉 .

4) Besides cats, I love dogs, dolphins, meerkats and baby deer. But I hate cockroaches.

5) I have visited a score of countries, not counting England (where I was born) and Israel (where I live now).

6) My favourite pastry is – cheesecake.

7) I am a terrible procrastinator.

There, that’s it, Gentle Reader. Have a great week!

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?
