Liebster Award & Nominations


I was nominated by the lovely Mummy behind Mum In The Cotswolds to take part in the Liebster Award – a cute little ‘award’ that looks to recognize fellow bloggers, and pay it forward to other blogs that you like and admire. As a relatively new blogger, I’ve been delighted to take part – it’s been a really great way to discover other lovely blogs and Mummies.

So what is a Liebster Award?

A Liebster is an award created by bloggers for other fellow bloggers.  It’s an award that’s passed on by nominations between bloggers as a way to welcome, celebrate and discover new blogs.

The Rules

Once you have been nominated you will need to write a blog post containing:

* A link back to the person who nominated you

* 11 interesting facts about yourself

* Answers to questions asked by the blogger who nominated you

* Links to your nominated blogs

* 11 questions for your nominations to answers

Don’t forget to notify the blogs you have nominated!


So let’s get started.

  4. I gave both these hobbies up when I got pregnant, and opted for the less-dangerous hobby of piano playing
