Liebster Award!





I've been awarded the Liebster Award from the lovely Jodi over at Love and Crayons. It is an award given to bloggers by their fellow bloggers and I'm very honoured to accept it!

There are a few rules when accepting this award.


  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the question the nominator set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve nominated to answer.
  3. Choose 11 blogs and link them in your post.
  4. Go to their page and tell them.
  5. No tags back!



Ok! So here are the questions that Jodi asked me.


What’s your #1 most played song on your play list? At the moment I am totally into my Elvis album that I downloaded from iTunes to my iPhone. James constantly asks to listen to "Daddy, please don't cry" so that's on repeat a lot.

If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? Oh wow! I have no idea. I used to love really un-usual names but since I've gotten a bit older I'm more into traditional names. I love my name though and the fact that it is spelt differently so to be honest I don't think I would ever change it.

What was the last movie that made you cry? It takes ALOT to make me cry. I'm not really one to cry at movies and I'm really having to think hard to remember the last one that actually made me shed some tears. Possibly Pearl Harbor which I re-watched about six months ago.

What is a necessity for you in the morning? A cup of tea and a warm house. Honestly I cannot function until I have had my first hit of caffeine and if the house is cold then it just makes me plain miserable. I also have to be up on time. If I oversleep then it starts my day off bad and the rest of the day follows suit.

What do you miss most about being a kid? I guess mostly the freedom. You don't have to worry about where the next meal is coming from or how you are going to pay the next bill that comes through the letterbox. As long as you have your friends your happy!

If you have 30 minutes of free time, what do you do? I like to write, read blogs, knit, read.. By writing this I'm noticing that I like quiet things!

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I love learning new crafts. I taught myself how to knit by watching YouTube videos, I've tried to do the same with Crochet but I just cannot get the hang of it.

What's your favourite outdoor activity? Walking. I love it.

What is your favourite type of food? I love Pizza. I mean who doesn't?

What is your favourite season? I love Autumn but then in the dead of winter, I cannot wait for the warmer weather and change my mind to Spring being my favourite. I think it honestly depends what kind of a mood I am in.

What is the last book you read? I'm currently re-reading the Twilight series. I've just finished New Moon.




Now 11 facts about myself..


1 - I have a type A personality. If I am late for anything then it sends me into a complete tailspin.

2 - I am the most impatient person that I know.

3 - I am a complete romantic at heart.

4 - I was married before I met Anthony. I was 18 years old and stupid.

5 - I am the most paranoid person ever when I am pregnant. Probably because of my history but still I think I annoy everyone around me to the point that they want to rip my head off.

6 - I am always worried that my Emetophobia stops me from being the best parent to James.

7 - Mine and my Mum's feet are identical.. Right down to our little toes.

8 - I wish I was more creative.

9 - I hate ironing.. I hate putting the clean clothes away even more.

10 - I love cheese.

11 - I finally stopped biting my nails at 26 years of age.. How bad is that!



Now my 11 blogs that I am nominating - Last year when this award was running the blogs that you nominated had to have under 200 followers.. I'm not sure if that is the same this year.. Nearly all of the blogs I follow have way over 200 followers so I am going to nominate people who's blog I love to read!

And... Finally... wow, this is taking forever! My 11 questions to my nominees :)


1 - If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
2 - Favourite vacation you've had?
3 - What's your morning routine?
4 - What is the worst film you've ever watched?
5 - What can you not leave the house without?
6 - Most embarrassing moment at school?
