Liebster Award!

The very lovely has very kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award – hurrah!

I’ll be completely honest, I had no idea what this was to start with but after a little reading it appears to me to be a very neat way for fellow bloggers to support others and also to reveal a little more about ones self

As with any award, there are rules;

1. Acknowledge the blog that has nominated you and display the Liebster Award on your Blog

2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you

3. Give 11 random facts about yourself

4. Nominate 11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award with less than 200 twitter followers or who haven’t received a Liebster Award before

5. Let those bloggers know you have nominated them

6. Give them 11 questions to answer

Phew, you still with me? That is rather a lot so here goes;

1. What is the most adventurous thing you’ve done?

I’m not a jump out of a plane kind of girl but I have travelled to the Far East & India alone

2. Where is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been to?

Rome – there’s something totally magical about that place.

3. If you could do one thing tomorrow that you’ve always dreamed of, what would it be?

Travel the world with my family to spread the word about my amazing business idea that has made me millions. Just need to come up with the business idea. Minor detail.

  1. If you won a car what would you do with it?

I’m not going to deny, I’m a car snob (champagne tastes/lemonade budget perhaps) so if it was a Skoda, I’d trade it straight in. If it was a Range Rover Evoque, I’d pose around in it for a good few months before reluctantly trading it in to fund the aforementioned amazing business idea……that I need to come up with.

  1. What is your favourite drink?

I’m partial to the Prosecco but the Red Wine rules in our house – preferably Italian

  1. Who is the first person you go to in your time of need?

Without question, my lovely hubby

  1. What is one goal that you have not yet met but are working to achieve?

I wouldn’t say I’m actively working to achieve it at the moment (due to mummy/work/blog time) but I would love to do my PHD at some point

  1. Do you think you’ll move house again?

Well, obviously when my amazing business idea (did I mention that?) comes to fruition we’ll have a house across the globe but until then, I reckon we’ll stay put for now. Moving house is very stressful in my experience!

  1. If you only had time to save one thing in your home, what would it be?

Well, assuming husband and Nipper are safely outside with me and the hunky firemen, it would possibly be photographs. However, as much as we all like nice things around us I’m not especially sentimental about stuff, only people.

  1. In your life, what brings you the most happiness?

My beautiful little family

  1. Where is your happy place?

Saturday mornings with my other half the the little person, bacon sarnie and coffee on the go and the weekend together stretching ahead of us.

I’ll be posting my nominations and questions in a 2nd post as its getting late……and its also hairwash night (!) so toodlepip for now and check back soon to see who the lucky peeps are that I’ll happily pay this forward too x



The beginning……..

Well here we are, first post on the blog on a sunny Sunday afternoon. I should in fact be having a snooze whilst my 9 month old has a nap. He’s had croup over the last 2 weeks which has left me with a delightful and oh so attractive summer cold to contend with whilst trying to develop my new career route, getting prepared for our 1st family holiday away and keeping up with the mundane necessity of having a somewhat presentable house……easy-peasey.

Holiday is a week in a cottage in North Norfolk which the hubby and I are very much looking forward too. Its a huge departure from our usual annual trip to Ibiza but the combination of maternity pay and a small child has led us to rethink that holiday format. Well for now anyway. At the moment I’m in the throes of endless list writing and ‘to do’ lists in preparation for our little break away.

However, I blame my cold for my lack of inclination to do anything but lie on the sofa watching you tube videos……unmotivated is an understatement. Maybe that snooze is a good idea after all 😉
