The Liebster Award!

Hi Everyone!
So I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by Kay - Mummy's Blog and have to say I was very shocked and surprised, but I'm so happy to be taking part in this! Thanks Kay! :)

The Liebster Award helps bloggers with fewer than 1,000 followers to get their names out there and helps us promote our blogs better. My lovely readers get to learn 22 random facts about me, and I get to ask questions to the bloggers I nominate.
1. Thank the person who nominated you, posting a link back to their blog on your blog. (This goes without saying! :))
2. Display the award logo on your blog post or as a widget or gadget. (It’s best to save the image to your desktop and then upload it to your post.)
3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which the person who nominated you has asked.
4. Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate five – 11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award, and who have less than 1000 followers. (You can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information.)
6. Create a new list of questions for the nominated bloggers to answer.
7. List these rules in your post (you can copy and paste from here.)
8. Once you have written and published it, you then have to Inform the people/blogs that you nominated for the Liebster Award that you’ve actually done so! Provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

My answers to Kay's questions:
  1. If you could be an animal what would you be?
    A flamingo! (They look so awesome!)
  2. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?Chocolate Covered Almonds - Oh my days have you tried them, because they are perfect!
  3. Do you collect anything?
    I used to collect Stamps when I was in middle school, had a stamp book and everything! Nowadays I can't say I collect things, but I do keep hold of little bits and pieces for my memory box :)
  4. What was the best holiday you’ve ever had?
    This is a hard one because I've had loads of really good holidays! But honestly, the best one was a weekend away with my girls in Portsmouth last summer! We had such a lovely time together and made some memories that i'll never forget! :)
  5. What was your favourite book as a child?
    I adored Wind in the Willows.. I used to draw the characters because I loved it so much!
  6. What is your claim to fame?
    Ahh, I have no idea how to answer this question! My Husband shouted out 'Being a Mummy' when I asked him for help with this one..
  7. What is the most extravagant thing you have ever purchased?
    Noah's Pram and Changing Bag - I have no regrets though because I still am madly in love with them!
  8.  What is your favourite film?
    This is so unfair, because I'm such a film geek! Um.. I really love the Transformers films, they're fantastic!
  9. Your house is about to be blown away by a freak gust of wind. You have time to go back and get one possession. What would it be?
    I want to say my hearing aids, but really I should say something meaningful as I can get some new hearing aids anytime! But if I had my hearing aids in, i'd say my laptop - Not for the materialistic reason but because it has so many home video's and photo's of my boys.. They can't be replaced :)
  10. Can you speak any other languages?
    Nope - I used to be fairly decent at French when I was at school though, forgotten most of it now though!
  11. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    To be honest, I'm like a bird.. I always go back to the place where I began, so I'd stay where my family are, wherever they go, I follow! (Cheesy as it may sound!)

My 11 Random Facts:

  1. I have a massive phobia of Crabs and Lobsters, genuinely can't stand the look or thought of them!
  2. I'm such a daydreamer/fantasist.. I swear I've walked out of a Jane Austen novel..
  3. I always have such big ideas on writing a novel, but simply don't have the time, patience or energy to start it, let alone complete it!
  4. I have so many male celebrity crushes that it must be pushing at least 10!
  5. Gossip Girl is the one boxset that I've watched more than twice (Ed Westwick is too hot! Eep!)
  6. I won an award in high school for doing Work Experience - I got the best personal record and I was so happy because it was in my dream placement :)
  7. I feel stressed if my house is untidy.
  8. I have a nickname of being 'the updaterer' because I seem to always know what's going on in the soaps, fashion and celebrity world (I blame Twitter for this!)
  9. I've always really hated my nose! (I've learnt to try and get over it though!)
  10. I became Severely Deaf by having Chicken Pox at the age of 5, very badly for a month.
  11. I'm currently trying to save up for driving lessons.
