I’m absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for the LIEBSTER award!
Why??? You ask
Because I get to share some of my ever growing lists of blogs that inspire, educate and entertain me. I was thrilled to be nominated by Becca at From My Lofty Hill. She has a fascinating blog about homesteading in Belize. You’ll be hooked, pop over for a visit!
The premise is simple.
You link back to the lovely blogger who nominated you. Even if, as with Becca, she’s younger, prettier and smarter then you! (Don’t worry, none of you have that problem!)
You answer the questions you were set.
You nominate eleven other blogs and set eleven questions for them. I don’t know why it’s eleven. I didn’t make the rules. I’m nosey, I’d have asked waaaay more!!
Questions set for me to answer
What is one thing you would like to change in your country? After this winter I would seriously like to ban snow!
First thing you check in the morning? The time. Whether I can go back to sleep or not!!
Which song do you like to hum? It depends what comes into my mind, it could be a lot of things from Rugby songs to Christmas Carols in July!
What was an embarrassing experience you had? Walking down Oxford Street in London with my skirt tucked into my knickers.
Tell me a guilty secret. I really don’t like pizza. Or chocolate. Or Cottage Cheese.
List your three, all-time favorite songs. Three?! That’s not possible. Music is always around me but the next three songs in my playlist are
Sound of Silence – Disturbed
Drinkin Problem – Midland
Good Tradition Tanika Tikarem and Bang on the drum all day – Todd Rundren is currently playing. The last song was O Fortuna – Carmina Burana so it varies!!
What do you value most in another person? Integrity
What motivated you to start blogging? Being half nagged to death by friends who wanted me to write my crap down.
What gets you through a bad day? Humour. Without fail. And plotting revenge!
If you could describe yourself in 3 words- what would they be? Bookworm, Friend, Mum
What made you smile today? My little dog/chupacapra Daisy
My Blog Nominations for the Liebster Award are as follows:
GTFO Now Domestic Abuse of men isn’t as commonly supported as for women. Neither should happen, EVER. This is an invaluable resource for anyone suffering or as a resource to help.
Becoming The Muse – this is a beautiful blog in its own right, Beaton has an easy writing style that’s very enjoyable but even more so when you see the ballet of posts between him and Mabel at Mabel Rants. He writes – and she rights. I love that description of their dance.
Books and Stuff Oh this lady and I – we’ve got a thing going on! I think she’s in cahoots with Amazon because I cannot resist her book reviews!
Brixton Jaxx This person has a great writing style and a really great blog about transitioning.
Katzenworld Because CATS!!! Duh!
Ten Thousand Days Almost ten thousand days ago, his fiancée died tragically. The story of his life and relationships since. I love it.
Swerve Strikes Back A great blog about life and opinions and a little bit of everything!
Brit Wit A blog by an American trying to understand and explain British colloquialisms. Compelling.
The Go To Girls Blog A little bit of travel, a little bit of local England, a little bit of baby love – a LOT of fun!
Historian Ruby – This is a fabulous blog with detailed, fascinating posts. Witchcraft, Suffragettes, Royalty – there’s something for everyone.
