A Little Liebster Love


On the weekend I had a lovely surprise. The endearing CJ from 30 Days of Smiles tweeted out to the universe that my little blog had been placed on a list of AMAZING bloggers.  Yes you read correctly. Her words not mine.  Her list not mine.  Naturally I am totally willing to go along with it.  Apparently my blog is worthy of a read.  It appears the stuff I write and cook and share is not just for my own amusement after all. People actually read this stuff. Who knew?

So here's a big thank-you to CJ   Thank-you CJ Smiley  

The Liebster Award is a great way of recognising bloggers with a growing audience and this is what it requires me to do:

  • Link back and recognize the blogger who nominated them
  • Answer ten questions given to me by the nominator
  • Nominate ten other bloggers for the award
  • Create ten questions for nominees to answer
  • Notify my nominees
  • Get an award button and display it proudly



I was asked the following questions by CJ and so here's your chance to find out a little bit more about me. Ooooooh ahhhhhhhhhh bet you can't wait to read..

  • If you could get on a plane today and go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
The Bermuda Triangle.  Ideally it would be a return trip.
  • Cookies or Cake?
Please. For me this a torturous question.  I liken it to being asked to choose between my children. Ugh.
  • Favourite childhood memory
Seriously loved my childhood.  Kissing a boy I had a huge crush on when I was 13.. is right up there.
  • If you could change your name what would you change it to?
Princess Consuela Bananahammock. Wait..What!!  It's been taken.. Dammit!

  • Do you have a life motto? If so what is it?

Not really but I am fond of the following..
C'est la vie
  • What skill would you like to learn?
I've always imagined myself playing the guitar.  Me and everyone else right?  I sadly lack the discipline to conquer such a beast.  And so..I do not foresee this musical mastery manifesting itself anytime soon.  Australian Idol will have to wait.
  • IPhone or Android?
IPhone. ICook. IEat. IBlog.
  • Who would you love to meet? Alive or dead?
Bruce Springsteen (I know..so predictable) preferably alive 
  • Deserted Island you can take 2 people and 4 objects what would you take?
Jim Carrey (for there must always be humour - even on a deserted island).
Morgan Freeman (for there must always be someone you won't get tired of listening to - especially on a deserted island).
Coffee Machine.
A Power Point.
IPhone.
Telecommunications Tower.  
  • You've just won $500,000 dollars what do you buy first?
An around the world ticket travelling first class including guaranteed 100% gluten free deliciousness at every stop.
