A quick post to break up the norm.  Yes it’s overdue as I was nominated err back in December 2017 but you know how it goes.  Now to get to it!

What is the Liebster Award?

The ‘Liebster Award,’ literally translated from German as ‘dearest award,’ is an internet based award. This award is awarded to bloggers by bloggers, and is primarily a way for smaller bloggers to become discovered, gain some readership and make friends.

The Rules

  • Have a display of the Liebster Award in your blog post or in the side bar of your blog
  • Give thanks to the person who nominated you and include a link back to their blog
  • Respond with answers to the 11 questions you were asked
  • Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you love
  • Come up with 11 questions for your nominees
  • Let your chosen Liebster award noms know they’ve been nominated by providing them with a link to your blog post
So I was nominated by the very talented Meera from Escapes and Epiphanies blog.  Talk about a nice looking blog.  She writes about travel, fashion and is quite the artist as well just look at her sketches and you’ll see.  Thanks for the nomination btw!  I appreciate it and am grateful for the thought.  Oh and don’t forget to check out her instagram  and twitter too.  Lot’s of great travel pictures and tips on there, you won’t want to miss it.

My Answers To Meera’s Questions

What are you thinking right now?

I really wish my neck didn’t hurt as much as it does.  This is terrible….

 What inspired you to start blogging? 

I’ve always loved writing so I was inspired to start blogging as a way to start writing again.  I’d put off writing for career and school for a long time so blogging was my way to get back into writing and creating.

Where do you hope to be in 10 years? 

Healthy, happy in my job, own a house, more money in the bank, married to the love of my life 🙂

What are three things you hope to achieve during your lifetime? 

Write a novel and get it published.  Retire by 65 at the latest.  Live to 100 years old.

If your whole life was written in a book (inluding how and when you die), would you read it? & Why/Why not? 

Absolutely would not read it haha.  One of the wonders of life is not knowing.  I like the mystery of it all, it keeps life interesting.

What is your favourite book of all time? 

Hmm such a tough question.  I would have to say Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

If you had unlimited money for one day, what would you do? 

No we’re talking! Pay off any debt.  Buy my dream home, complete with movie theatre and gym.  Invest money in a whole bunch of stocks.  Buy some more houses, summer home, winter home, rental properties.  Donate some to good causes.  Book a vacation.

What has been your most embarrassing moment so far? 

Running out of the class in panic mid lecture in a packed university lecture hall because I ate too many prunes….yup.

If you could live in a fictional universe (e.g. Middle earth/Harry Potter/Marvel/Star Wars), which one would it be?

Harry Potter isn’t fictional what you talking about?! 🙂    I’d have to say the Marvel Universe because superheroes.

What’s one thing you wish you could tell your teenage self ?

Don’t get into a serious relationship, there’s plenty of fish and lot’s of life to be lived.

What are 2 of your proudest achievements? 

Starting this blog and getting my current job.

What are 3 things that made you happy today?

Getting prescription drugs for the pain in my neck.  Life saver.  Eating lunch with the family since I didn’t have to go into work.  Reading a few chapters of Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo.

  1. Loved reading your answers! The prune story is hilarious, thankfully that hasn’t happened to me (yet), I did however manage to fall down three slights of stairs in the cinema… will definitely be picking up Neverwhere next time I’m in a bookshop too!

    • Funny to look back upon, not funny at the time haha. Gkad you haven’t experienced that and hope you never do 😂 Ouch that could have been really bad if you landed wrong. Thx again for the nom, Enjoy your week!

  2. Another award you’ve racked up. Keep up the good work man! And loved the questions and answers on the post

  3. I loved that you explained what Liebster means because I always wondered – why is it called that? I agree about not reading a book on me either. Life is about the mysteries. Great answers 🙂

    • Mysteries and wonder, where would we be without them 🙂 Thanks for reading and input Laura, always appreciated!
