A Second Liebster Award!

I’ve been nominated for another Liebster Award! Thanks very much, theoxfordowl  ! I’ enjoy your posts 🙂




The rules, as usual:
1. Answering the 11 questions
2. Listing 11 facts about myself
3. Nominating 11 smaller blogs for the award, and setting them 11 questions.
Read on for my answers!
11 questions!
1. Where were you born? I was born in Khartoum in the Sudan!

2. What is your favorite fragrance? I am not sure I could choose but I love all Lush perfumes, Breathe of God and Scent of Weather Turning are two favourites from theirs.

3. What color do you most like painting your nails? I like a variety, I usually go with more conventional on my fingers and use blues and darker colours on my toes! I like French gelish when I have that done then I can paint any colour over the top as I feel in the mood.

4. Are you left or right-handed? Right-handed!

5. What is your favorite book? That’s even harder than favourite perfume! I tloved all Jane Austen’ books and Jane Eyre, Recently I have loved Rohinton Mistry’s books and … I could go on so I will stop as there are so many.

6. Beyoncé or Rihanna (or neither)? I’m not a fan of either, I far prefer other female singers. I think Carole King is great and Amy McDonald, Katie Melua to name just three I prefer to either of those.

7. What is your favorite thing about blogging? Writing posts. I love writing and sharing my views and interests .

8. What three things would you take with you to a deserted island? I hope I am never on one but suncream, a kindle full of books and a nice sharp knife to cut food, and help with making a shelter.

9. What is your favorite hobby? Travelling. I would spend my life travelling if we didn’t have two cats and insufficient money!

10. Cats or dogs? Cats, I think as they are so independent and not as needy as dogs.
11. What is your favorite TV show? I am enjoying ‘Homelands’ at the present time but I really loved ‘The Bridge’ and further back I loved ‘The Forsythe Saga’.

11 facts!
1. I need to lose 10lbs and just cannot seem to get motivated to do anything about it
2. My favourite Weste End Musical is ‘The Lion King’ . If you have not seem it I suggest you try to as soon as you can.
3. I volunteer for a charity called ‘Homestart’ where we visit families with pre school children who are struggling for any number of reasons.
4. I lived in Australia for thirteen years and still yearn for the sunshine in Brisbane at times
5. I have recently celebrated my 60th birthday. Where did that time go?
6. I wish I could play an instrument. I learned the piano as a child and never achieved any grades!
7. I have two children and three step children. All now grown up and I am very proud of them all
8. My favourite poet is Pam Ayers – I love it when she reads her poems
9. I love cooking for special occasions but hate everyday cooking as it seems rather pointless
10. My favourite food is Vietnamese food as it is spicy and really fresh and tasty

    Congratulations! It’s well deserved and thank you for the nomination! I love reading the answers on award posts, it’s lovely to get to know bloggers better and I so agree with you on answers 8 & 9. The knife would definitely have to be one of those multi-function knives but bigger!
