Thanks to Grapefruitviolins for nominating me for the Liebster award! It’s my first award for my Afternoon Tea4Two blog so I am really chuffed. The award is supposed to be for those with under 200 followers, so I have nominated bloggers who I really enjoy reading.

Here are the rules:

  • Acknowledge the blog who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions your nominator asked
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers
  • Ask them 11 questions
  • Let them know you have nominated them

Let’s get to it, starting with Grapefruitviolins questions!

  1. Do you prefer typing or writing out by hand? Why? Typing as I can get it done so much quicker and my writing has gone worse over the years. 
  2. Is this your first blog? No, my first blog is my Back Pain Blog which I started after having four failed back surgeries and got hooked on blogging.
  3. Which of your blog posts are you most proud of? The ones where I write about the awards I have won, like this one 🙂
  4. What is your favourite place that you have only been to once? That’s are hard one as I like to go back to places I love. I think it will have to be Lake Como in Italy. 
  5. What pet peeve of yours do others not share?  Putting dirty pots in the dishwasher 🙂 
  6. Which is better- a riddle or a joke? A riddle I remember those better.
  7. How would you rate your most recent camping experience out of 10? Not been camping since school so can’t really rate it but I know my daugther and her husband love it 🙂
  8. What is your favourite hot drink? Hot chocolate.
  9. Have you ever been to the zoo? Yes, quite a few of them actually. Shocking news over Christmas that two had fires.
