Liebster Award

FullSizeRender-6This post is dedicated to the Liebster Award which Maisie’s Mum has been nominated for by the lovely Jodie of Being Mrs Davies. It’s always a joy to be acknowledged and I am delighted to be chosen. The Liebster Award is a winsome way to recognise and promote the discovery of new worthy blogs by improving blog visibility. It’s an award for bloggers from bloggers and is basically a fun way to spread the love!

Here are the rules: 

1. Thank your nominator and link back to them from your post.
2. Answer the questions you’ve been set and tag your nominator when you share your post on social media.
3. Nominate 5- 11 bloggers to answer some questions from you. Don’t forget to let them know!

Here are my Q&A’s set by Jodie. Surprisingly, it has taken me an excessive about of time to answer these, I find it difficult talking about myself.

Why did you decide to start blogging?
I’d always thought blogging was beyond my reach but after joining Instagram and discovering so many inspiring blogs I started to realise that maybe it wasn’t. I loved the social element and I’ve always got the impression that blogging offers a kind of therapy to the blogger, I wanted all of that!

What are your top 3 blogging must haves?
My Macbook Air, good old pen & paper for my musings and some nap time from Maisie!

If you could visit anywhere in the world where would it be?
New Zealand and South America. In 2008 I cut a ‘Round the World Trip’ short and these were the next places on the itinerary. I’m not one to let things go easily.

Describe becoming a Mum in 3 words?
Tiring, Testing, Wonderful.

What is your family favourite day out?
Somewhere new, which boasts toddler friendly activities to keep Maisie happy, good coffee, even better food and maybe a few shops thrown in for good measure.

What is your favourite social media platform to use?
Instagram, I love the positivity and friendly community.

What is your go to family meal?
I like to mix it up as often as possible but I’d say classic spag bol for speed, ease and veggie packed goodness.

What’s your favourite book?
Jane Austin – Pride & Prejudice

Which other bloggers do you love?
Asides from my nominated blogs my favourite blogger is Jules from This is Jules.

What has been your best family holiday?
A winter sun winner to Tenerife over Christmas in 2014. It was warmer than expected and we escaped the Christmas chaos of home.

What is your number one parenting tip?
Lower your expectations and things will be easier. 🙂
