Wow first time that I have been nominated for a Bloggers Award. A big thank you to Lil’ Nibblet’s Nook for the nomination. She is a new blogger with a baby daughter. Do have a look at her blog which covers a mixture of craft, home education, recipes and reviews.
Here are the rules for accepting the award:
Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
Put the award logo on your blog.
Answer the ten questions they have set you.
Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominate ten people.
The questions asked of me and the other nominees were:
(with my answers in blue)
What time is it where you are?
What is your ideal weekend?
One when I’m not working in summer, with time to spend having a barbeque in the garden plus a late afternoon or early evening walk on the common.
What have you learned today?
About another family health issue.
Three favourite books: Go!
Labyrinth, Sepulchre and Citadel, all by Kate Mosse
If you could visit any era in time, which would you choose and why?
The 1800s to meet some of my ancestors as I’m very interested in genealogy.
What is the best decision you’ve ever made?
Starting work rather than continuing with further education, as I’m still working for the same employer all these years later, and I was able to take 6 months paid carers leave last year to look after son1 when he was diagnosed with leukaemia.
Top 3 favourite websites?
Twitter, Facebook and Google
Everyone has a favourite food & recipe, what are yours?
My favourite food is fresh cherries and my favourite recipe is Spinach and Cottage Cheese Cannelloni. A meal which the whole family enjoy. I have blogged a variant of my recipe here.
If you could learn a random skill, what would it be and why?
Cycling because I never learnt properly as a child and I’m sure it would be nice to cycle on holiday as a family in a few years time once the boys are confident riders.
Where is your favourite place to take an out of town guest?
One of the nearby National Trust properties, as you can look round the house, take a walk and visit the tearoom.
And I’m now going to ask the following 10 questions
Who inspires you the most?
Where was your best holiday ever?
Your favourite movie?
Your favourite animal?
Which chocolate would you choose first out of a selection box?
What did you spend your first wages on?
Furthest distance you have ever walked in one day?
Your most unusual hobby?
If you could have afternoon tea with any celebrity, who would you choose?
How many lights in your house?
And I’m going to nominate the following 10 blogs in no particular order for The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Sorry to those who I haven’t included. I would have loved to nominate you all.
Kim of Northumberland Mam
Rebecca of The Beesley Buzz
Mommy Cook For Me
Di of Super Lucky
Jane of Competition Grape Vine
Alison of Dragons and Fairy Dust
Vicky of Single Mother Ahoy
Sonia of This Mummy Loves
Sophie of Franglaise Cooking
Jocelyn of The Reading Residence
Thought I better do it straight away or i’d never get around to it…http://thebeesleybuzz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/sisterhood-of-world-bloggers-award.html thanks again for the nomination. xxx
Great post. And I know what you mean about how difficult it would be to choose who to nominate. My original list had about 20 names rather than 10
Thanks so much for the nomination. I have several similar awards (dating back a couple of years in some cases!!!) on my ‘to-do’ list as I am rubbish at getting around to such things. Might be able to get a quick post together as I love your questions. xxx
Thanks so much for nominating me. I will get it online as soon as I get chance to sit and think 😉
You’re very welcome. Looking forward to seeing your post
Thanks for the nomination, unfortunately we only blog recipes or food-only content on Franglaise Cooking but thanks all the same 🙂
oh gosh, yes it would be a bit difficult to answer some of my non-foodie questions
Congratulations on your nomination and thanks for nominating me, will have to put my thinking hat on now! 🙂
You’re welcome. Have fun doing your post
Congratulations on your award nomination! And good luck!
I love your idea of a perfect weekend … It’s a shame we don’t always have the perfect weather to match!
Thank you. Yes you can’t trust the British weather
