Great questions!!  I really am too boring and do not have 11 facts about myself!!

Then I was awarded a Liebster by Four Little Piglets who is one crafty mumma and here are her questions for me!!

So what is a Liebster Award? The award is given to support and recognise up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (on their blog) or likers (on their Facebook page). The word “Liebster” apparently has German origins and is reported to mean sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. By following some basic rules (answer 11 questions set by your nominee, write 11 questions of your own and pass the award onto 11 other bloggers to answer) it enables readers to get to know new bloggers and connect with a wider audience.

  1. Would you rather watch TV or play on the computer? Depends on the time of day and whats actually on tv worth watching!!
  2. Are you a routine kind of person, or a what ever goes person? Whatever goes!!
  3. Do you sleep with the window open or shut? Open in summer!!
  4. PC or MAC? PC
  5. What is the last movie you watched? Santa Paws
  6. What book are you reading at the moment? Nothing just YET!! We have been reading The Aussie Night Before Christmas.
  7. Are you a dog or a cat person? Both, can't pick there!!
  8. Do you prefer to ring someone or send a TXT? Text!!
  9. Approximately how many hours sleep a night do you get? Not enough!!
  10. Camping or Hotels? Hotel-although I am prepared to take the kids camping when they get older as long as I get a powered en suite site!!
