Liebster Award Nomination – #grateful

Anindya from My Daily Journal has seen fit to give me a special mention on his award acceptance post, and for that, I am very grateful!


Check out his fantastic post here!

I have received and accepted the Leibster award a few times, and as always, I like to reblog the post to thank the Blogger who thought of me. Today, as I have a little time on my hands, I thought I’d answer the questions at least, as that can be fun to do!


Answer these questions, Set 1

  1. What inspired you to start blogging? A friend started a blog, helping with her depression. I wanted to comment but had to log in to WP or create an account. I did, then it asked if I’d like to start a blog, so I did!
  2. What is the best thing you love about your home city? Which city do I count as home? The one I grew up in or the one where I live now? My childhood home city of Birmingham is simply the best because it’s where my parents are! My home now, Gravesend, is the best because it’s where I started my own family!
  3. What are the types of music you usually listen to? I have a really eclectic taste in music. I listen to the radio sometimes and in the car my CD’s range from Bhangra and Bollywood, old and new, to Soul, R’n’B, Pop, Disco, Love songs, Dharmic Shabad too.
  4. Who will be your dream date on any day of the year? As a fulltime working mum, any date, with no kids, on any given day would be good!
  5. Kindle or hardcovers /paperbacks? Kindle for convenience, real books for the feel!

Answer these questions, Set 2

  1. What is your favourite colour, and why? I used to like Peach.. don’t know why, but as I have grown, purple has become my thing! It is regal, and deep, and makes me think of luxury.
  2. Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, for blogging, which is your most favourite? I’m not sure yet… Twitter is good, Pinterest, if you make pin friendly images is great, Facebook, if you have that kind of post that makes people want to share…
  3. Have you visited India? Yes, several times!
  4. For those who have and for those who live in India, what is your most favourite destination here? I really enjoyed my few days in Mumbai!
  5. Can you ever think of leaving blogging? Without a shadow of a doubt that answer is no! I have tried to take a break for a few days, and even that is too hard!!!!

There you go Anindya! Hope you like my answers!

And Peeps, please, go check out his blog!!!

The Questions

1. If you could be any animal on earth, what would it be and why?

Duh, an otter. Why? Well, they play constantly, they’re hyper-active, and they love to, ahem, make love. Also, otter’s are my wife’s favorite creatures. So, yeah.

2. If you had to write the soundtrack of your life,what would be the first three songs?

My own. I started writing songs when I was 13, so they form a sort soundtrack for my life. The first, “Sweet Marie,” had a melody stolen from an old minuet. The lyrics: “We never speak of Sweet Marie, we…

It gives me a great excuse to bust some tunes on my stereo, and sing along!

We tend to go on family holidays, and by that I mean going to visit family, nice, but not really a vacation! I much prefer the beach holiday scenario!

4. What is your favorite activity on a sunny Summer day?

Relaxing in the garden, my family playing around me, and me sat with a good book, chilling

5. What is your favorite activity on a cold and snowy Winter day?

Much the sameness, sat wrapped up on the sofa, or in bed, my family around me, watching a film, or reading again!
