Liebster Award!

I have previously recieved one of these. Mel from Just winging it. Parenting by the seat of my pants has kindly passed another one my way. Thankyou Mel :)



So what is a Liebster Award? The award is given to support and recognise up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (on their blog) or likers (on their Facebook page). The word “Liebster” apparently has German origins and is reported to mean sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. By following some basic rules (answer 11 questions set by your nominee, write 11 questions of your own and pass the award onto 11 other bloggers to answer) it enables readers to get to know new bloggers and connect with a wider audience.

Questions set by Mel

1.      How long have you been blogging/had a Facebook page for?  I started blogging in May of this year, my first post was about laying in a pissy bed,  thanks to my daughter Izzy. The facebook page came later.
                            
2.      Why did you start blogging? Just to write things down somewhere, I had no idea how big it was and how many  friendly people were out there in blog world.
                         
3.      What should you be doing right now, instead of blogging? Sleeping! 
        
4.      Name 3 items you could grab from where you are sitting? Drink bottle, phone, tissues.
         
5.      Are you a morning or evening person?  I would say evening, I don't like getting out of bed in the morning. Maybe I should go to  bed earlier. But evening is me time, and morning is "Mum, muuuum, muuuuuum"....all  day!! 
                   
6.      What book are you currently reading? Nothing. I hardly get to read the local rag in peace. 
         
7.      Where were you born? Mt Gambier, South Australia. 
          
8.     How many times in your life have you moved and where to? About 7 times. The last 5 have been in the town I am in now, we moved here when I  was 12. I've been in this house for 10 years.               
               
9.      Are you a coffee or tea drinker?  Both. Mostly coffee.
           
10.   What is the next country on your travel wish list? I haven't been OS, ever, unless you count Tassie. For some reason I would like to go to  Noumea.
                            
11.   Are you spontaneous or a planner?  I would say planner, I like to know what is going to happen and when. I have to think about being spontaneous, which I think defeats the purpose.
