Liebster Award


When I started this blog only a few months ago the main purpose was to write down my frustrations of my daily life living with the ogre. It was a place to vent. It was never really written in a style for others to read, but some have and apparently found what I have written so far amusing. Back in June shortly after I started this blog I was nominated for a Liebster award by a lovely Irish Expat named Linda.

 I wanted to post this and nominate blogs myself, but at the time I had just started blogging at WordPress and did not follow many blogs so I thought I would wait a bit until I had some to nominate.

 Apparently these are the rules –

  •  Post the award on your blog
  • Thank the blogger presenting you with this award and provide a link back to their blog
  • One good turn deserves another, meaning, you then need to find 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers who you think are deserving of the award so that you can then nominate them! In other words, keep the love going and help small, new blogs get out there and get noticed!
  • Finally, the award presenter will ask 11 questions of you which you need to answer and then you, in turn, ask your nominees 11 questions, and so it goes.

 Thank you Linda!

 I did not get any questions to answer, so I will ask some of my own and tell you some things about myself.

 Things about myself:

  1. My favorite color is green.

  2. I enjoy painting fantasy miniatures, but am not very good at it.

  3. I didn’t make my first from scratch cake until I moved to England. Now that is the only cake I make.

  4. I like to host toyvoyagers (

  5. I have had pen pals for the last twenty three years.

  6. One of the games I have been enjoying playing with DH recently is Torchlight II.

  7. I don’t like going barefoot, I always have to have socks or shoes on even on bare carpet.

  8. I can no longer eat things with gluten in it.

  9. One of my favorite things is going to a corner shop and buying a half of a giant watermelon and putting it in the fridge to enjoy later. It is truly the best.

  10. I love picking berries and rosehips with DH in the autumn.

  11. If I had a super power I would want to either be able to stop time or time travel.


Questions for those nominated:

  1. What is your favorite color?

  2. What made you start writing your blog?

  3. Is this your first time blogging?

  4. What is one food that you could do without?

  5. What is one item you can’t do without?

  6. What do you consider to be a perfect day?

  7. What is your favorite holiday?

  8. What countries have you traveled to?

  9. If you had a superpower what would it be?

  10. What is your favorite candy/sweet?
