Liebster Blog Award


As my blog is still just taking its baby steps I'm so pleased to be nominated for the Liebster Award by Jodie from rocknrollajod. The Liebster Award is a fabulous way of all us bloggers with less than 200 followers to help other small bloggers reach a wider audience. The rules are that after you've been nominated you post eleven facts about yourself, and then answer eleven questions asked by the blogger who nominated you. You then continue the cycle all over again by nominating eleven more bloggers yourself and asking eleven new questions.

So heres eleven random facts about me....

1. I'd never succeed as a hairdresser, as my girls could tell you the only hair style I can do well is a ponytail and that's only just.

2. Even though I love growing my own veg I can't stand eating the stuff. 

3. I only drink tea when I'm ill and it has to be milky and full of sugar. Any other time it makes me sick.

4. I'm a total fan of any and every murder mystery tv show.

5. I have a zombie escape plan as you just never know.

6. I totally believe in the concept of aliens, our universe is just too vast for our planet to be the only one supporting life in any space or form.

7. I secretly love watching my husband play his xbox game just to figure out which characters would work well together romantically.

8. I hate the colour red I honestly don't know why I just do.

10. When I was little my barbies never married ken (he was too girly), they use to run away with action man.

5. Who would you want to play you in the movie of your life?

Wow this ones a difficult one, there are so many amazing female actress out their but if I had to pick just one it would probably Eliza Dushku she was just so kickass in Buffy & Dollhouse, the fact that her hair always looks amazing helps too.
