I have recently been awarded the Liebster Award by the inspirational Raising Young Believers. Thank you so much! 🙂

If you were like me, you probably have no idea what the Liebster award is! So here is a brief overview:
The Liebster Award is an
online award that is by bloggers, for bloggers. It’s passed from person to
person to encourage connection and support within our writing community, and to
help discover new and upcoming bloggers.

To accept the award and participate there’s just five simple rules:
1.      Link back to the person who nominated you
2.      Answer the questions given to you by the nominator
3.      You can choose to nominate up to 11 other bloggers
with less than 200 followers
4.      Create 11 questions for the nominees
5.      Notify all nominees via social media/blogs
Here are my answers to the questions
asked by Raising Young Believers. So much fun!

1. Do you cook? What’s your favourite meal to prepare?

Yes, I do cook. When I have time, I love experimenting with new recipes and I’m getting quite good at baking breads and cakes. My favourite meal to prepare is a traditional English roast dinner. It reminds me of my childhood 🙂

2. What do you do in your time off? How do you unwind?

By the time the children are asleep, and any last bit of housework is done, its usually 10pm. To unwind I like reading or writing new blog posts. This blog brings me so much joy! 

3. Have you ever been camping? If no, would you ever
go camping?

I went camping as a teenager with my school, and I hated it! I love being outdoors, but nothing beats having a nice warm shower and curling up in a ‘real’ bed after a long day hiking! 

4. As a child, did you enjoy school?

Yes, for the most part, I did enjoy school. But often I felt that it was a complete waste of my time! I vividly remember sitting in a English Literature class learning about World War I poetry and saying to my friend, ‘Why are they making me learn all this! When am I going to use this!’ Even then I had an opinion about education!

5. What is your greatest fear?

Being buried alive….enough said!

6. Sweet or salty foods?

Salty! Savoury pastries, pretzels, salted crisps…..yum!

7. Movies or books?

Books. I can’t even remember the last time I watched a movie! When I go on holiday, the first thing I pack and unpack are my books! Total Bookworm!

8. Summer or winter?

This is hard but I guess I’d have to say summer. I love pottering about in our garden, tending to our very modest vegetable patch, as well as doing school work with the kids outside. 

9. Tea or coffee?

Coffee, coffee, coffee!

10. Where do you get your blogging inspirations from?

I read a variety of blogs by all kinds of women! I think my first introduction to the blogging scene was Noor Janan Homeschool. Its still one of my favorites! 

11. Share the link to a blogpost you most enjoyed writing.

It was fun writing ‘A Day-In-The-Life‘ blog post. I knew our home was a crazy place, but it wasn’t until I wrote this that I realised how crazy! 

And now my nominee is:

Suhaila from Play, Unpenned – Please check out her blog. She writes beautifully about gentle parenting and the importance of play, as well as many other things!

And the questions that I would to ask are…

1. Describe yourself in three words.
2. If you could recommend one thing for a new mum to buy for her baby, what would it be?

3. Do you use a baby-carrier, and if so which brand?

4. If you could describe your parenting style in one word what would it be?
5. Are you are early-bird or a night-owl?
6.  If you could be a character from a book/movie, who would it be?
7. Where would you most like to travel?
8. If you had the whole day off (no work, no kids etc.) what would you do with your time?
9. Favourite food?
10. What do you write about in your blog?
11. Share a link to a blogpost that you most enjoyed writing.

I can’t wait to read your responses! 

Please remember us in your duaas.

Peace and Love.
