The Liebster Award

Awarded 7/3/15

Awarded 7/3/15

Again, a massive WOW!

Another award!!  I feel so humbled, and privileged that there are people, who are reading my blog and enjoying to the extent that they want to nominate me for something!

What is the Leibster Award?

“The Liebster Award is an award given to rising bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.”

(Oops!  I’m a little over the 200 followers mark but hey! I’m not ungrateful!!!)

Here are the rules, and I am doctoring them slightly…

The Rules ( I researched this a bit!)

  1. Link the person who nominated you to your blog post. Thank them and let them know you answered their questions.
  2. Answer the 10 questions given to you by the nominator.
  3. Nominate 5-11 other bloggers with a following of less than 500. (Ok so I nominated one that has more… never mind, we’ll let that slip eh!!)
  4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
  5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.
  6. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)

So Thank you hugely to Sherina of Sherina Speaks!
My 11 questions are:

1) How are you doing today?

I’m doing mighty fine thank you!  The sun is shining, the kids haven’t been arguing, I have been pretty much A-OK!!
2) Do you prefer to type, or write on pen and paper? Why?

I like both actually.  Pen and paper when I am composing something poetic, as I like to see how the words flow, but typing, on the PC or Ipad for general posts or longer pieces, as it is easier!
3) What is your favourite quote? Why?

I’m not sure who said it but “Its better to die on your feet than to live on your knees!”
4) Cats or dogs?

Cats 101%!!!! If I said anything else Sonu Singh would be very upset!!

 5) What is the first thing you grab at a buffet?

The best seat!!!
6) What is your favourite thing about blogging?

I can write what I like, and get feedback or encouragement on creative ideas, or give someone a giggle with a funny story or photo!
7) What are you an expert on?

Nothing! I am a Jill of all trades, a mistress of none! Cant you tell from my blog, a mish mash of all sorts!!!
8) What made you smile today?

My children, they always make me smile!
 9) What is your dream vacation?

At this moment in time, any vacation would be my dream vacation!!! But I would love to be beside an amazing beach, able to relax, eat, drink, party, sleep, with no worries!
10) What is your ultimate goal in life?

It’s not a hard one, and I think I am very nearly there already, but it is to be happy.  I want to be happy with what I have been blessed with in life, not wanting for more, Happy to be able to live as I am.
11) Can money buy happiness?

Nope, but it can sure help sometimes!! 😉

My 11 nominees are… in no particular order…

1) Wasted Days and Wasted Nights
2) The Bantam Blogger
3) Edwina’s Episodes
4) Mamamaitri

    I remember getting this award. I know the post is on my archived articles somewhere. The best question was what 3 items I would eat if that was all I could have. I will assume that I would live normally and be healthy with eating them (otherwise the question is no fun). so 1) Chocolate Malt 2) Pizza Hut Supreme Pizza with extra cheese 3) Oatmeal with sugar and milk.
    Wow! That would be a life.
