Liebster Award

Thank you E. Milo for nominating me for a Liebster Award. I still get excited knowing that people are reading what I write.  I know I’ve said it before but I started this blog as a way of getting my thoughts, feelings and frustrations about living with ME/CFS down, I guess as a form of therapy.  While I didn’t expect to have readers, I’m so grateful that I do as I’ve met some wonderfully supportive people who can relate to what I right from all over the world.  E.Milo has kindly said that as I have done this process just recently I can conserve energy by not doing the whole process again but I think it’s only fair that I answer her questions.

This award is given to bloggers with less than 200 followers (give or take) that a blogger feels should get some recognition. There are four steps a nominee takes to receive this award:

  1. List 11 things about yourself.
  2. Answer your nominator’s 11 questions.
  3. Choose up to 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and ask them your own questions.
  4. Inform your nominees of their award nominations

My responses to points 1, 3 and 4 are here.

And my responses to E.Milo’s questions are below

  1. Finish this sentence: “One day I will…”

Learn how to do nothing and not be worrying about what I should be doing

  1. What sound or noise do you hate?

My pager beeping.  It guarantees the way I planned to ration my energy for the day is about to have to be re-planned.

  1. What is your favourite animal?

I know I’m still boring but dogs.  I just spent a weekend with two of them and they’re hilarious, like two toddlers!

  1. What is your perfect  birthday meal?

A shared platter of cheeses and antipasto with a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc followed by lemon tart for dessert.

  1. What part of your body do you like the most?

My conjoined toes.  Just because they’re a good talking point.

  1. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?

Travelling around Europe with no need to rush home so that I can do it at my own pace.

  1. What three people, dead or alive, would you like to have at a dinner party?

My grandmother, who passed away before I was born, Bill Granger to cook and

  1. Where do you want to be or how do you see your life 20 years from now?

I hope that I am settled with someone I love, either with a couple of kids, or travelling the world.

  1. What is your biggest vice?

Chocolate.  Until about 6 months ago I had willpower, then overnight it disappeared.

  1. Name one book and/or movie that made a difference in your life.

I don’t know if it changed my life but Bobby is right up there.  I loved how I came away from it feeling like I learned so much given that my knowledge of history is so poor, and how Emilio Estevez managed to weave so many stories amongst such a significant true story.

  1. Finish this sentence: “I am thankful for…”

My family.  Thanks to them I am sitting here tonight with clean windows, leftovers, my ironing done, a lovely tidy yard, a fully functioning computer and resting after some wonderful company.
