Huge thanks to the lovely Beautmum for including me and my little space here in her list of nominees for the Liebster Award. Check out her great blog here.
In case your wondering, the Liebster Award is an online award and is given by Bloggers to new Bloggers, it’s a great way to support and discover new blogs. Now as some of you may be aware, I am actually blogging four years but this space here is all shiny and new.
The rules for the Liebster Awards are simple. When you receive an award:
1. Post the award on your blog
2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog
3. Answer the 11 questions that the nominator has asked
4. Nominate bloggers who you feel deserve this award
5. Provide your nominees with a list of questions you would like to know about them
Here are the list of questions from The Beautmum and my answers 🙂
1.If you could spend a week on a desert island with one celebrity who would it be and why?
Jamie Oliver, he could forage and fish and make sure we’re well fed!!
2.Name one thing you have always wanted to do but never did?
Travel, I was very young when I started my family and got married, I’m sure my time will come however.
3.What’s your favourite flower?
I love flowers, I’m not sure I have a favourite to be honest. The roses in my wedding bouquet were pretty special, I described what I wanted to the florist, she showed me pictures, I pointed to the exact one I wanted, it was called Nicole, she said it might be hard to get, but get it she would and she did, they were beautiful. (forgive the photo’s, they’re almost 15 years old!)
4.Name your favourite love song?
When you say Nothing At All is I guess what you would call ‘our song’, Mr. Simply Homemade and I, it’s quite a nice little story as to how it came to be and has more to do with the words than the song itself. He has his moments does my Mr. Simply Homemade.
5.If your home went on fire and you could only grab one thing what would it be and why?
My family; my husband and my children, no explanation needed.
6.What is the best book you have ever read?
Gosh, this is a tough one, I love reading but my taste in books has changed somewhat over the years, as a child I loved Heidi and The Secret Garden, my tween years were spent with the Sweet Valley High twins, then I moved on to Jackie Collins, I still have a fondness for American Star from her and of course Chances, Lucky Santangelo, now she was a feisty lady! I have read countless other books, I like autobiographies too. I’ve just finished Marian Keyes, The Woman Who Stole My Life, it was vey good and now I’m reading a book about health and nutrition, Eat Nourish Glow by Amelia Freer. I don’t have a favourite book overall, though my childhood reads do conjure up some nice memories.
7.Would you age gracefully or get Botox, fillers etc
Age gracefully for sure
8.What do you do to relax?
Not enough!! I’ve come to realise lately that I don’t have enough me time. I try and get out for a walk most days for headspace, but that’s not relaxing so to speak. I have my blogs of course but again you need to be switched on to run a blog, so whilst it is a most enjoyable hobby, it isn’t a means of relaxation. I seriously need to work on relaxing!
9.What was your favourite holiday to date and why?
As I mentioned previously, holidays have been thin on the ground as we have concentrating on our family, we are still awaiting a honeymoon, almost 15 year later!! Life throws curveballs……
10.Did you enjoy school and who was your favourite teacher?
I wasn’t a big fan of school, and I am not one of those people who longs to go back and do things differently. I did have some good teachers, one in particular, my English teacher, Ms. Wall was amazing, I am sure every student who was thought by her would speak highly of her.
11.If you could only ever wear jeans or dresses for the rest of time which would you choose?
Dresses, lovely floaty little summer dresses that are forgiving after a big lunch!!
