The Leibster Blog Award is a fantastic idea created to promote and support new blogs.
 I follow Jess from A Little Part of The World, who recently received this award. She in turn, generously nominated me.

Now, I don't consider myself as a 'new' blogger, having surpassed my 4 year blog anniversary and 500th post. Also, I was nominated for this award almost exactly three years ago, twice! (HERE) Back then, the Leibster was sans questions, so it has morphed a little as it has been passed about! I do however always welcome new readership and love finding new blogs to follow, so here we go!

The rules that came with this nomination were:

1. Link back and recognise the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer ten questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate ten other bloggers for the award.
4. Create ten questions for nominees to answer.
5. Notify your nominees.
6. Get an award button and display it proudly.

 My answers to questions from Jess:

What is your greatest fear? 
Poking myself in the eye with a needle when sewing by hand. Weird, I know!

What is your earliest memory?
The hullabaloo I caused shoving a Flatsy Doll into the suction tube of a ventilator when I was four. I'd had heart surgery and broke the machine. Oops!

When was the last time you had a really good belly laugh?
Last night. My man-boy who's taller than me at 12, came screaming out of the laundry because he saw his own reflection in the dark window. Still chuckling!

Have you ever broken a bone? If so, what and how?
Yes my toe. I dropped a scythe on it whist teaching in Papua New Guinea.

Chocolate, Strawberry or Vanilla?

If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Weird. My son asked me this last week. I was told creating peace and wish-giving were not super powers... so - To be able to heal things.

What is your dream holiday destination?
I miss my three 'nest leavers' so much; so anywhere we are together

What do you want for Xmas?
One, stress free dinner with all my family together without rush or deadlines imposing.

What’s your favourite type of music?
Eclectic. I like it all!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
Where I am...but in a finished house!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. 
 You are very welcome and encouraged to comment, I love receiving feedback!


  1. Thank you so much for nominating me KL! You're very kind. Loved reading your answers to the questions, and as for that scythe, it was lucky you didn't chop the toe off by the sound of it (although a break sounds painful). xx

    1. I'm never sure of these things are received with welcome or dread, so I'm thankful for your comment Heidi! Luckily, Jess asked easy questions to respond to. The scythe was dropped during a 'grass cutting' lesson with 8 - 10 year olds all weilding one and all standing about a metre appart. God knows how only my toe was injured and not a child's leg amputated!

  2. Terrific answers KL. I am still chuckling over the site of your young man running out of the laundry. I certainly hope you get your Christmas wish and a finished house. Jx
