It seems I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by a fellow blogger (Ashley Cameron’s Writing).
Thank You Ashley! Yeaayyy 😀
To be honest I am not completely sure about how this award is won but from my research it looks like an interesting way to interact with the blogging community at large and give the new guys (myself included) a helping hand! It’s based on links for each person who gets nominated and in turn nominates 11 other people. Great PR.
So, why not?

- I want to be a writer (novelist), although I never start the book that is waiting to be written.

Questions from Nominator:
1. What is your favorite book?
- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I had hoped to find a Mr. Darcy, sadly found Mr. Collins instead (Sad mix up indeed!) :s
2. What would you do for the rest of your life if money was no object?
- I would hide out and finally write. Read loads too!
3. What is your favorite meal you like to cook?
- Chicken roasted in the oven with potatoes, onions, garlic, lemon and a gazillion herbs. I do not know the name of this recipe its my own concoction!
4. What is your most favorite scene from a movie?
- The only one I can think of right now is more a line from a movie. “Life of Pi” the writer asks Pi at the end which story was true and he responds with:
“Which story do you prefer?”
“The one with the animals”, he answers.
Pi responds, “And so it is with God.”
5. How do you like having a blog?
- I find myself quite addicted to it. I enjoy reading people’s blogs and as a new blogger you will find me publicly jumping for joy if someone actually posts a comment! Ahhhh!!
6. What object in your life could you never live without?
- Objects are almost all replaceable, sadly so are people sometimes. If I absolutely had to choose, it would be my passport.
7. What/where has been your favorite vacation?
- A short trip to the beach half an hour from our house when I was younger with my parents and siblings. It was pretty simple. It was the last time I remember my heart completely full. Joy, happiness and contentment all at once. Those couple of hours together was worth a lot.
8. If you could go anywhere in the world..where would you go?
- I would go to Spain! The castles, the landscape, the mish mash of cultures from centuries of old not to mention the language and food. I think I would completely enjoy it!
9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
10. What movie are you most excited to see this year?
11. I will also steal a question from my nominator…If you could share one thing you learned from this year what would it be?
