Liebster Blog Award

Leibster blog award?  Me?  Well I can officially say I now feel like I am truly part of the blogger community - thank you to Claire for nominating me!  I decided to pick out a nice picture of my face especially for this post, it's me in Malaysia back in July 2011 living the dream - as you can see I have an umbrella in my hair. I'm off the chain.

Anyway here are my answers to the proposed questions:

1.  Bath wash or bar soap?

Citrus scented shower gel (bath wash?!).

2.  What did you have for dinner last night?

Stir fried vegetables along with marinated salmon fillets covered in soy sauce.  Along with a glass of white wine.  Yum.

3.  Do you normally remember your dreams?  If so, what do you typically dream about?  If not, do you wish you did?

I never ever remember my dreams.  I remembered one once and in it I was flying all over the world, that was nice.

4.  What is your most recent obsession - TV show, song, book, food, whatever?

Olympics of course!

5.  What was one of the quirkiest things you did as a kid?

On my first ever day at nursery I spent the entire day pretending to be a 'daddy lion', I wouldn't talk to anyone not even the teachers, I just roared and scrambled about on all fours.  I also had an unhealthy obsession with dinosaurs as a young kid, to the point where I would eat ham like a dinosaur and used to draw dinosaurs on everything - I got into trouble at school for drawing dinosaurs on the back of my books, and at my grandparent's house for drawing an almost to scale size Brontasaurus ON THEIR DINING ROOM WALL.  I included a little drawing of myself stood next to it.

6.  What is one of your bad habits?  Are you trying to break it?

I'm really bad at talking through films.  It irritates the hell out of whoever is sat with me but I enjoy doing it so I'm not going to try and change it ...

7.  What is one of your favourite smells?

Lemon.  Preferably lemon cake.

8.  If you could adopt any (child) fictional character, who would you adopt?

Eli from Let The Right One In.  Is that weird?

9.  Tell me one thing you absolutely love about the city you live in.

I live near Sheffield, UK and the one thing I love isss .... Division Street/Devonshire Green.  Best night life and also the location of Tramlines Festival.

10.  What is one thing you wish you were better at?


11.  If you were a breakfast cereal, which one would you be?

Frosties.  Love tigers.

So as I understand it I now come up with eleven questions of my own and nominate some more blogs?

The ones I nominate are:  Jo, Mia, Hannah, Katy and Kay.  Here are your questions ...

1.  If you could invite any four people to dinner, who would you invite?
2.  Favourite thing about Great Britain?
3.  Childhood quirk?  (stealing that one, I like it)
4.  Tell me one thing you wish you were better at.  (And that one)
5.  Name one place in the world you want to visit/go back to and why.
6.  Sunrise or sunset?
7.  Favourite thing about blogging?
8.  Favourite song/artist right now?
9.  Favourite olympic sport?
10.  If you could choose a decade to live in, e.g. the fifties, sixties or seventies etc, which would you choose and why?
11.  Winter or summer?
