MY FIRST AWARD: THE LIEBSTER AWARD. RAH! RAH!!
Isn’t it marvellous. I’m just in my fourth week and going into the fifth Sunday and I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award. What an honour.
What is a Liebster Award?
A Liebster Award is a blog reward believed to have taken birth in my new home-land – Germany! “Die Liebster” in German means sweetheart, my love or dearest and is a world-wide nomination for up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.
I was nominated for this award by Jess from Turquoise Compass
Thank you so much Jess. Turquoise Compass is a lovely blog about travels, adventures and fulfilling your dreams; whatever they may be.
The Rules of the Award are:
-Link to the person who nominated you
-Answer their questions
-Nominate new blogs for the award
-Ask them 10 new questions
-Let the nominees know they have been nominated
The questions were:
1. Where is your favourite turquoise destination?
Well, I see that most of the turquoise trips seem to be in the Americas so I’d say my favourite is the good ol’ US of A. I wasn’t expecting to have as good a time as we did!
2. What is your worst nightmare?
Sheep in the basement. Don’t ask!
3. What is your top bucket list item?
To get a Phd.
4. What turquoise destination are you dying to visit?
In the Americas, any country with a fascinating ancient history and culture. I like the old stuff.
5. What are you most proud of?
My son and my husband.
6. Who is your role model and why?
Every woman who went against the system and lived their lives the way they wanted to live them, against all the odds of their society.
7. What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
Having my son. Naturally and without intervention. In water. ‘Best thing ever!
8. What did you do nice for someone this week?
I gave an old woman some money on the train even though others ignored her and then stared at me.
9. What is the one thing you regret?
I live in Germany. I speak German. I am the British Berliner however, I regret not taking German as a foreign language earlier as a teenager. I did it for a year at school , then lost interest. Well, how was I supposed to know that I would later live here….!
10. What is your favourite winter tradition?
Going to the German Christmas markets. I live in Berlin and there are many gorgeous Xmas markets here. Every year, my friends and I spend 6 weeks trying to go to as many of the markets as we can, drink glüwein (mulled wine), eat green cabbage, sausages and mustard, eat stollen (Xmas currant and sultana cake covered in castor sugar), and generally have a merry old time.
O.K. Enough about me. As per the rules, I have to nominate other up and coming bloggers so I nominate the lovely people below:
spend your days A very interesting all-rounder blog. Very nice!
Strullersuppe A vegan lifestyle blog. In German. A really innovative young woman. She cooks. She creates. She organises, and she’s got a million tatoos too!
Anja’s little situation Anja is a young lady that both my husband and myself used to do improvisation theatre with. She’s going through a life-threatening illness at the moment and is courageously brave.

Right, here are my 10 questions:
- If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?
What’s your favourite smell?
What do the clothes you wear, say about you?
What was the last electrical item you threw away and why?
Half-full or half-empty?
What language would you like to learn and why?
Have you ever been to the Red Sea?
