Double Liebster Award

Ange and Pippa both nominated me for the Liebsters Award.

To qualify, you need to have under 200 hundred followers (me) or be under 6 months old in blogging terms, and then do the following:

1.List 11 random things about yourself
2. Answer 11 random questions
3. Choose 11 blogs to pass it on to
4. Create 11 questions for those 11 people

Well as I'm behind the curve on this as I was nominated by Ange before she knew that I was her secret partner in the Pouch I waited...then forgot! But most of you have now had the award, though if you read this and you would like me to officially pass it on to you then email me....infact Kath, who is going to the FQ retreat with me, I will pass it on to you, and you can choose any 11 of the following questions....easy!

Random Things

1. I was born in Lancashire and now live in Cornwall, but I have lived in Italy for 2 years.

2. I'm VERY untidy as I find it hard to throw stuff away and so I save it....anything from cardboard chocolate boxes to old other half could deal with this if I ever used them....but they are mounting up fast and he now refuses to go in one room....actually you can't get in the room anymore!

3. I've got double jointed elbows.

A friend took me when i went to a game in Melb too, and I thought it was fab, but i did have a few glasses of beer! (Double jointed elbows, sorry, but that sounds a bit creepy, don't show me at the Retreat please!!).

    Liberty is so cool! Are you bringing her to Retreat??

  4. Oh i really enjoyed reading your answers, I'm with you on the double jointed elbows and historical fiction but maths, let's just say it's not my strong point.
