I got an email this week that I nearly deleted. I get so much spam and when I started reading this email I thought it must have been spam also. But I kept reading and I’m glad I did. I was from Tash from Gift Grapevine and she had nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award. I did a quick google search for Liebster and it is a mysterious award bloggers pass around to other bloggers they love to follow.

So Tash has sent me ten questions to answer about myself and then I have to nominate other bloggers for the award. It’s a bit like a chain letter really but it seems like a bit of fun so why not?

1. Name something you cannot live without
My iPhone. Sad but true.

2. What’s one of the scariest things you’ve ever done?
Fly to Melbourne by myself with a five-month-old. Haha. I’m a huge wimp and tend to stay away from “scary” things 🙁

3. Finish this sentence – I really need to…..
Clean my study.

4. Favourite toy as a child
I loved Dopey from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves when I was a kid and I had a Dopey toy that went everywhere with me.

5. Favourite book as a child
I had this nursery rhyme and short story book that was absolutely falling apart at the edges. I found it while I was pregnant and now love reading the stories to Olivia.

6. First album/cassette/CD you ever bought?
A Kylie Minogue tape when I was in kindy.

7. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Japan. I haven’t been for about 6 years and I’m dying to take hubby and Olivia to meet my friends over there.

8. Do you like to plan things out in detail or are you spontaneous?
I’m more into planning. I love a list but I’m not great with the little details. I’m more into the big picture.

9. Who is your favourite person/organisation to follow on Instagram (and you can’t say yourself!)
There are so many that I love but I will say @fatmumslim just because she takes the most beautiful images and I love seeing what her community come up with for #fmsphotoaday.

10. When not blogging, what do you do for fun?
Spend time with Olivia of course! While she is sleeping (and I’m not busy working), I love to craft and cook.

The “rules” of the Liesbter Blog Award are different according to different sources so I have just chosen give blogs I love to read. The bloggers I nominate are:

1. Live it! Do it!

2. Peachy Keen Mumma

3. Healthful Mums

4. Modern Father Online

5. Happy Crafty Family

Thanks Tash for the nomination! Gift Grapevine is a fairly new blog and a great place to stop by if you are looking for some gift advice. Very handy with Christmas around the corner!
