I’ve been nominated for a Liebster award by the lovely Karina over at her blog http://cheesybiscuit.wordpress.com/ Thank you Karina!
The Liebster award is bloggers way to spread some love. It’s about saying I like your shit and getting to know different blogs, the blogs they like and nominate and so it goes on.
When nominated you need to answer questions set by the blogger who nominated you, share random facts about yourself, nominate blogs you think are great and create questions for them to answer.
So here goes….
Here are my answers to the questions Karina posed:
1) What’s the worst item of food you’ve ever tasted?
A south western French stew with raw andouillette
2) What’s your favourite book?
Oh a hard one!! So many for different reasons but if I have to choose just one, The Picture of Dorian Gray.
3) If you could wake up tomorrow somewhere other than where you are right now, where would that be?
4) Who (or what) makes you laugh?
Lots of things that shouldn’t and my husband.
5) What thing do you do less, that you actually think you should do more often?
Sleep. Children do that to you. After spending many years happily depriving myself I know understand why its used as a method of torture.
6) Christmas: yay or nay?
Yay, every time!
7) Favourite quote, or piece of advice?
Again, a hard one. I’ve read so many good quotes and advice recently. The one quote that has stayed with me since I first read it as a teenager is;
“The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” Charles Dubois
8) Marmite or marmalade?
9) Rice or couscous?
Rice. One of the most important foods in the world and gluten-free, unlike couscous.
10) Favourite thing to do to relax? And, ahem, keep it clean, people…
Friends, music, reading, writing, wine and cooking (combinations of).
