The Liebster Award

Yeahyyyy I’ve been awarded the Liebster Blogging Award!! As a new blogger, getting the support and recognition from other bloggers is so important.  I am slowly getting to know fellow bloggers through this wonderful community and feel so pleased to have been awarded the Liebster Award by Paula at Typewriter Girl.  Such a lovely blog about Paula’s life in Ireland with her dog, Boris, please check it out.

The Liebster award is a virtual award passed from blogger to blogger to help promote and support each other, in particular, new bloggers.  It’s such a great idea and I for one really appreciate the support. It helps those of us just starting out to get a little recognition, so a big thank you to Paula πŸ™‚

As part of accepting the award, Paula asked me 11 questions…so here are my answers:-

What is your favourite part of blogging?

I am really enjoying writing and learning something very new and challenging.  I’m also enjoying reading other blogs, connecting with bloggers from all over the world and becoming involved in the blogging community.

What country, city or continent would you most like to visit and why?

Since going to Whistler, snowboarding last February, I would love to travel and see more of Canada.

What was the most inspirational time in your life so far?

In the 1980’s our family had emigrated to USA and unfortunately experienced two family tragedies.  I was young, but I did learn such a lot during those years and I was certainly inspired especially by my brother in many ways, but in particular that it is incredibly important to live this short life to the full, stop saying, “it’s not the right time” and realising that the only person to ‘make it happen’ is You!

What are you passionate about?

My loved ones, my dogs, keeping fit, healthy & active,

What is your favourite book and why?

I love reading, (although not had much time lately to pick a book up) but can’t say I have a particular favourite.  My reading choices do vary depending on my moods

What is your favourite time of year?

All four seasons have their beauty but for me, I love Spring.   The weather gets better, all the new flowers are popping up, new leaves on the trees, new lambs, calves & foals in the fields, birds nesting & feeding their young and peoples’ moods in general seem to lift.

What are other interests do you have besides blogging?

Walking, mountain biking, snowboarding, boating, campervanning, gardening

Do you prefer the beach or the mountains?

Hard choice, love both, but… Mountains

Where did you go for your most memorable vacation?

The first time I went to America with my family, I was around 13/14 yrs, late 1970’s.  We did a Greyhound bus tour, Los Angeles, California, Vegas, San Francisco.  We saw The Grand Canyon, Yosemite Park, The Sequoia trees and of course Disney.  For a young Yorkshire lass the majority of what we experienced on that tour has stayed  with me.  It was a fabulous, happy ‘Family’ holiday.

Do you prefer a sunny or a rainy day?

Sunny πŸ™‚

If you had a day all to yourself, how would you spend it?

Maybe going somewhere for the day such as the beach, walking & blogging

Now, my next task is to pay it forward and nominate 11 blogs for the Liebster award and comment on their blog to let them know. So, here goes: Please answer all the same questions as I have above. Please folks do visit these great blogs and say hi πŸ™‚
