The Liebster Award!

I am so honoured to be given the Liebster Award from The Phenomenal Woman !! I have to admit I didn't know what this meant, but I am seeing an invisible trophy on my bookshelf right now!! LOL

"The award is given to support and recognise up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (on their blog) or likers (on their Facebook page). The word “Liebster” apparently has German origins and is reported to mean sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. By following some basic rules (answer 11 questions set by your nominee, write 11 questions of your own and pass the award onto 11 other bloggers to answer) it enables readers to get to know new bloggers and connect with a wider audience."

So, apparently, I am suppose to answer the questions that The Phenomenal Woman (who, I promise, IS a VERY phenomenal woman!!) has set out for me, then pass it on. So here are the questions she has asked, and my answers...... (deep breath!)

1) What is your favourite past time, and why?
A: Hrmm, tricky one! I guess it would be appropriate timing, but my favourite past time is watching the Carols by candle light on Christmas Eve! I used to do it EVERY year with my mother (which is one of my dearest memories of her), and now I love watching it with my own children, singing ALL the songs, waiting for Santa, then when they go to bed, sitting on the floor, listening, and singing along, while wrapping pressies for the morning. :)

2) Do you have any pets, and if so, what are they?
A: Does this include children and a husband???? hehe, No I have 2 pets, 1 King Charles Cavalier puppy called Sookie (YES I love True Blood, so what?!) And we also have a cat (but he is more of Miss 8's cat) and his name is Benny. He is a beautiful grey ultra fluffy cat that LOOOVES  a cuddle!

3) What is your favourite way to spend time with the family?
A: In warmer weather, outside in the sun, having a BBQ, and playing games like cricket, football, and having a good old laugh!

4) If you have one message to give to the leader of our country, what would it be?
A: Honestly, I don't follow politics a great deal, and I am certainly not a keen voter of the traditional Labour or Liberal parties. I know this sounds a bit funky, but I follow The Australian Sex Party. I believe in a lot of the things they believe in, and honestly, labour and liberal are trivial to me. So my message would be something along the lines of "Please stop acting like a child, grow up, and be responsible for this country, and the people in it." I really don't know .... ???

5) If you could pass one law, what would it be?
A: Easy, allow Gay marriage. Love is love, who cares who it is between, as long as it is adult and consensual, then what's the big deal?? They are no different! (My Uncle In law ((if that's a real thing)) is gay, and he is super awesome!)

6) What is one item you can not live without?
A: I am going to sound cheesy, but my family. I simply wouldn't have the will to breathe!

7) If you were a colour, what would it be?
A: Oh this is fun! Id be bubblegum PINK!!

8) If there was one thing you could banish from your life, what would it be?
A: Look, there are a lot of things I would of preferred to be different, but honestly, a lot of these bad things, have shaped me into the (what I think) strong, resilient woman that I am! The only one thing I would want to banish would be cancer. I want my mum back.......

9) What is your best personality trait and why?
A: I think personally, my forgive and forget manor. I tend to not dwell on things for very long. If someone says sorry, then I forgive, and let go of the issue immediately. I have learnt to do this through a very long, difficult few years, but now I have this ability, I see it as a kind of super power! Somethings however can not be forgotten. I have recently let go and forgiven some people for some very nasty things that had been done to me. But I no longer interact with these people, as it makes me depressed. So that will not be forgotten. It has to be pretty serious for that to happen though.

10) What do you want the world to know about you?
A: Oh, I am going to have to think about this one! {Insert thinking music here - something from jeopardy maybe} I am just a normal person, I am a mother to 4 beautiful children, I am an almost wife to the love of my life. However, I feel I am meant for something bigger. I don't know what it is yet, but I want to make an impact on something or someone, somewhere. I don't know when, I don't know how, but it is going to happen! ...... Stay tuned!

11) If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be, and why?
A: Well that depends on the situation, but the place I have ALWAYS dreamed of going, was Rome. It calls to me on some deep level.
