Leibster Award from Em Linthorpe!

Haven’t done one of these for a while!

I am part of a fantastic group of bloggers on Facebook, called Big Up Your Blogs! Since interacting with them, I have developed even more blogpalships!

One of these pals is Em Linthorpe, and she nominated us for the Leibsterย Award, collectively! Now I have done this one several times over, but I feel I must do this, as the group has been so supportive to each other, and I am sat here on my sick leave, so have the time too!

So to the rules…

1) Say hi to the person sweet enough to want to know more about you โ€“ and display your award with pride;
2) Answer the eleven questions the person gives you;
3) Give eleven random facts about yourself;
4) Nominate some other people that you think are deserving of this award;
5) Let them know you have nominated them;
6) Give them eleven questions to answer.

So, Hi Em!!!! Thank you so much for thinking of me, and our whole group!

11 questions for me to answer:

Listen up nominees! These are the questions I would like you to answer.

1. ย What phone apps could you not live without?

My WP app, all the usual social media suspects, my banking app, and the various photo editing ones I use regularly!

2. Do you still keep in touch with any of your school friends?

Via Facebook, we link up, and a couple of years ago we had a reunion where a few of us got together the year we all turned 40! It was so good to catch up with each other!

3. What is your opinion of garlic?

It is a great flavour, as long as you don’t use too much! And it scares away Vampires… what’s not to like! Come one, you know you love garlic bread…!

4. Do you ever do DIY at home?

Simple stuff, like lightbulbs, and tightening screws… I’m not too bad with flatpack furniture! First proper time painting rooms last summer, and I replaced a light socket too! Hey, that’s not bad going for a Girlie Girl!

5. What are your most treasured books on your bookshelf?

I have so many books, but I think my Set of Noddy books are extremely special as they were given to me when I was recovering from an operation at four years old, and they are complete with Gollywogs and all!

6. What was the first concert/gig you attended?

It would have been an Indian musician with my Parents, Gurdas Maan, amazing singer! The first, and only western concert I went to was to see Blackstreet at Wembley!

7. If there was one thing you could change about your house, what would it be?

New flooring!

8. Have you ever been camping?

I have… two interesting days and nights, for my Duke Of Edinburgh award. A sheep walked into our tent… nuff said!

9. What was your worst kitchen disaster?

I love being in the kitchen, so I’ve had my fair share of disasters… but a recent one was when I made cakes for a school bake sale and they all sunk on me! Never has that happened before!!!

10. What words do you regret saying to someone else?

I’m not sure, but I guess what comes to mind is the few times I have generally blown off at the kids, because I am tired and have a short fuse, then I want to hug them and say sorry… They are just kids, not my sounding board.

11. Give us a brief overview of your gaming history.

Gaming and me… Well, let’s be honest, I am not a gamer really! But as a child, we had a Commadore 64 and we used to play Wheelin’ Wally. Then the Sega MegaDrive arrived and Sonic and Golden Axe were favourites! At Univeristy,ย Hubby Dearest and pals had the PS2 and Tekken was a game played in large groups. I loved it one day when my totally random pressing of buttons meant I beat every guy in the room! No tactics, just playing like a girl!

Now, I prefer things like the Just Dance games on the Wii!

11 random facts about myself

Apologies if you’ve read any of these before… In the past I did so many of these Award Tag posts that I don’t think I have anything majorly original to say!

  1. I have 29 first cousins!
  2. I can wiggle one eyebrow!
  3. I have a stationary fetish, seriously!
  4. The varied backgrounds of my family make me a British, Kenyan, Indian! But genetically, I am 100% Indian!
  5. I passed my driving test on the fourth go… (no comments about why my accident happened here!)
  6. I hate, really can’t stand, sports!
  7. I went swimming with turtles and dolphins in the Carribbean, what an experience!
  8. I only have one ovary.
  9. My wedding dress took 5 people embroidering for 16 hours a day, for 11 days, to make. Wow!
  10. I had Laser Eye surgery nearly ten years ago!
  11. It’s not often that you’ll see me without a smile. ๐Ÿ˜€

11 questions for my nominees: Excuse the laziness, but I am using Em’s questions!

Listen up nominees! These are the questions I would like you to answer.

1. ย What phone apps could you not live without?

2. Do you still keep in touch with any of your school friends?

3. What is your opinion of garlic?

Big Love! โค

    Congrats on another Liebster award for my “liebste” sister. Always nice when I can use a German word and I am understood…. lol. So one of the benefits of your unwanted break is that you are gifting us with a full award post ๐Ÿ˜˜
