The Liebster Award

A very sincere thank you to Sian over at The Freckled Fieldnotes for my nomination for the above! I started this blog just over a week ago and didn't expect anyone to even notice it at this point so hurrah! Feels good bro. Also what a lovely way to get to know other bloggers. So...

...let me hit you up with some rules. 

1. Once nominated, make a post thanking and linking the lovely person who nominated you.
2. Include the LEIBSTER AWARD sticker in the post.

3. Nominate 10 other new bloggers that have 200 or less followers who you think are worthy of this award. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can nominate the person who nominated you.

4. Answer the 10 questions asked to you by the person who nominated you and make ten questions of your own for your nominees.

5. Lastly, copy these rules in the post.

My questions from Sian are as follows -

1. What made you want to start your blog? 
I don't really have a lot of hobbies but have always enjoyed writing and wanted a place where I was able to write away. If people enjoy it - great, if not then I still have a place to come and get my thoughts out. 

2. Would you rather spend a night alone on Netflix or out clubbing with friends?
Tough one because I get the serious fear when nights out are involved. I think I would opt for a night clubbing with friends though because as much as I love chilling out with Netflix, I'm never going to wish I'd spent less time out dancing and laughing with my friends.

3. What's the sweetest gift you've ever received?
I'm a very lucky lady in that my friends are thoughtful souls and put lots of effort into gifts and I have a memory box full of sweet gifts that I absolutely adore, however, I think I'll go with the little St Christopher's pendant my wee gran gave me years back. To be honest I don't know a lot about who is the patron saint of what but my gran told me that St Christopher kept people safe on their travels. I don't know how much I dig that kind of stuff but my gran wanted to keep me safe and that's the cutest ish ever. For my job I sometimes have to travel and whenever I'm setting off on a flight I make sure I have this with me. I love my wee granny.

4. If you had to give up one of your five senses for life, which one would you choose?
Hmmm smell. The rest mean a lot more to me. 

5. Where would you go on your dream holiday?
Jamaica! I don't like being away from home and tend to want to be as close to home as possible but I just think that would be the ultimate dream holiday. If I was going to do it I'd do it proper, with the swimming pools up to your door and a personal butler etc. When my boyfriend and I spoke about getting married, we agreed that if we ever do we will spend the money we would save for a wedding on this dream trip instead, get married whilst over there and have the wedding and honeymoon all in one. Dreamy.

6. If you could live in the fictional world of a book, TV show or film, which one would you choose?
THE OFFICE. (US version). Imagine having Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute in your life. I'd be excited about work every day.

7. What song sums up your life right now?
Spice Up Your Life by the Spice Girls ha! I need to say yes to more things.

8. Dreamworks or Pixar?

9. Which blogpost of yours is your favourite?
Probably Cervical Screening & Bold Periods because the post just flowed (oh god ew) naturally and a lot of my personality crept out. My weirdness is starting to seep out and no one seems to have bailed on me just yet so that's nice. 

10. What food do you cook (or order) to cheer yourself up?
Fry up. Or a cheese and ham toastie. Not very eggs & avocado of me, sorry!

and my nominations are:
