Liebster Quinella

This post started as a Liebster times two, in the process I have procured two more. Enough already people!

Thank you very very very very much to Rita from The Crafty Expat, Robyn from Mrs D and Candy bows, Victoria from Declutterbug and Captain Stingypants and Tegan from Musings of the Misguided for nominating me and my blog, for Liebster awards. I will kill two four birds with one stone(coz I am that good!), and answer all of them in one post.

Ritas Questions....

1. Have you ever travelled to another country?
No. The furthest I have been is Long Island off Queensland! Considering I live in one of the southern most places in South Australia, it's a fair way. In a plane. :)

2- Which country did you visit or/and which country would you like to visit? 
I would love to go to Spain, the birth place of my Dad :)
3- What is your best travelling memory?
Learning to ski at Falls Creek or eating my way around Tasmania!
4- Which place did you visit in your own country?
There have been so many.....loved every one of them. I haven't been to NT or WA.
5- What is your favourite place in the world (other than home)?
My mums house.
6- What is your favourite craft activity or/and what type of crafts would you like to learn?
Crosstitch or quilting, I like to paint and draw, all of which I haven't done much of at all lately. I would love to learn how to crochet.
7- Do you have a craft fail? Tell me about it.
I am hopeless at taking up and hemming pants. Which is a pain because I am short. There are so many different types of materials I have no experience in hemming successfully :/
8- What is the most positive thing you get out of blogging
Relationships with fantastic people, who urge me on to create fantastic memories for the future generations, so they can look back on and experience their ancestory in a way I never got to.
9- What part of blogging you dislike
how time consuming it is!
10- What do you like best when you look at a blog?
When it loads fast, and is easy to read.
11-Name three things you want to do before the end of the year?
Wax my chin! lol.seriously!!
Blog my christmas day :)
Unpack from trip away for christmas day, and washed all the dirty clothes, and folded, and put them away in their respective drawers. that is all :)

Robyns questions....

Is your blog your job or your hobby? It is my hobby. One day maybe, it will become my job, who knows, maybe not?
Do you work from home and if so how do you manage to work around the kids? I do not work from home, thank f...ruit cake, because I do not know how the hell I could do it!!!!
If you could have a whole day to yourself what would you do? Go get a pedi, massage and facial all in one!
What's your favourite quick, never fail dinner recipe? Spaghetti bog!
Are you good at saying No when you need to? (I'm terrible) I am terrible, but, just tonight i didn't answer my door. I was trying to get my youngest to sleep, I wasn't answering the door to anybody!!! It turned out to be my next door neighbour, I would have loved to seen her.
What's the most embarrassing situation your little ones have put you in when out and about? Recently when we where at the op shop and izzy kept saying "We have to get out of here, this place stinks. It is making me feel sick". She was being so honest, I couldn't stop laughing!!
Are you currently following your passion? I am really not sure what my passion is. It would have to be gardening of some sort, maybe design. I am sure I would have to win lotto to follow it truly :/
Are you super organised or do you survive in organised chaos? I like to think I live organised, but I am sure from an oustide view it would be organised chaos!!!
Have you ever moved country before? No, not even statewide. I did consider once moving to NSW to be with Jakes Dad.
Do you have a thermomix? Do you love it? I don't have one! I went to a demonstration, but wasn't convinced it was the bees knees, although impressive :/ My sister in law has one and she loves it.
Camping! Love it or hate it?? Love it when it doesn't rain, or isn't too hot. And the kids are happy and not whining!! Would much rather a hotel room! We do have a caravan that is better than a tent I suppose.
