A Liebster Award ~ Thanks the Builder’s Wife.

A few weeks back the lovely Nicole over at The Builder’s Wife  passed on a Liebster Award to myself, so I thought it only fitting that I should answer her questions. I actually overlooked her message on Facebook or I saw it when I was half asleep, so it has taken me awhile to respond..

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the Liebster it is an award that is passed on by fellow bloggers to new & upcoming bloggers with less than 500 likes to get to know each other a little better.

The Rules surrounding the Liebster Award are;
1. Thank the blogger who gave it to you & include a link back to their website/blog etc.
2. Answer the 11 questions they give to you.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 500 followers.
4. Ask those 11 bloggers, 11 questions.
5. Let those 11 bloggers know they have been nominated so they can continue the chain.

I also thought it was a nice touch to visit & like the 10 others that were nominated alongside myself .

So thanks again to Nicole for the nomination, here are the following questions Nicole asked of me;

Coffee or tea?

I actually don’t drink coffee or tea, however, if I am at playgroup etcetera and there are no other options I will make myself a very sugary tea. I prefer hot chocolate or a malted milk.

Your favourite childhood memory?

Many of my favourite childhood memories are centred around my Grandparents and spending time with them.  I spent a lot of time at my Nan and Pop’s place while growing up, their home was full of fun, love and adventure.  Unfortunately my Nan passed away when I was 11 which was a turning point in my life for sure.

Beach or pool?

I love both, but the Beach is beautiful.. I feel at peace when I am at the beach..  In terms of swimming, however, I prefer the pool.

Where do you best like to shop? (For anything)

Target.. I have a Target obsession.. Hubby even hides the catalogues from me.  If I can’t shop in store I am renown for shopping online in the middle of the night.

When were you last embarrassed?

I don’t remember.. I don’t do many things to purposely be embarrassed or embarrassing so thankfully the episodes are few and far in between.  It was probably when I was last late to something, that is quite a common occurrence.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Iv always wanted to be a Primary School Teacher and thankfully I stuck to those goals and completed my degree and followed my dreams.  It took me a lot longer than I’d hoped as I worked and had my first son while studying, but after 10 years I was qualified.

What is your happiest memory?

Having both of my children and meeting my Husband.  It is a great little life we have created so these elements are the basis of my happy memories.

Why do you blog?

I have blogged for quite some time, not religiously .. but I enjoy it and I enjoy popping down my thoughts and experiences into words.  Not only for others to read but also for myself to look back on over the years.

Dogs or Cats?

I have both, 3 dogs and 2 cats.. I don’t like one more than the other really.  I am just upset lately because one of my cats is 18 and his health is ailing and 1 of our dogs is 14 and his health is ailing.. I hate when they get to this age and there is very  little you can do to slow the inevitable.. I find this one of the very sad parts of having pets because after that long they are like family, but the benefits of our pets far outweigh the negatives, so many memories to be taken away too.

What is your greatest fear?

My greatest fear is dying.. I have 5 little people and 1 amazing Husband who need me & I have so much more I want to achieve in this lifetime.. My Nan died at 52, her life was cut far too short and I want to be able to live a full life.. I  particularly worry because we are a blended family and if Hubby or myself die so much of our lives will change..

Have you ever broken a bone? If so what happened?

No thankfully.. I imagine if I ever did.. I would cry (I’m a big sook like that) thankfully none of the kids have broken a bone as yet either (touch wood).

I would like to pass the Liebster Award onto the following blogs (some have slightly over 500 likes, but that’s ok surely!) & to anyone else who would like to play along!
