The Liebster Award

22 Oct

Its been a while since my last post, for several reasons. I will tell anyone who is interested about this some time soon, in a seperate post 🙂

A lovely blogger, Megan from, who I never fail to read, has nominated me for ‘The Liebster Award’, so here I go!

My ten questions, written by her:

  1. Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?
    Somewhere even warmer than here!! I love days that are 35 degrees celcius PLUS! Anything under that, and I’m in a jumper. 
  2. What is your favourite pet that you have ever owned? (that is cat, dog, horse etc.)
    It sounds mean to my two little dogs now, but my last Papillon (dog), Harry, was just so special to me. He seemed to be attached to me by an invisible leash at all times, and lived to make me happy. His death was incredibly hard for me, and left a huge hole in my heart. 
  3. How would you describe your fashion style?
    Uh oh… Comfortable? I’m always a bit late accepting the latest fashions, it takes me a while to come around to things. In the past 6 months I’ve kind of stopped worrying about dressing in anything but PJs, though. If you don’t leave the house, its better to be in tracky dacks than jeans!
  4. Are you a spring, fall/autumn, winter or summer person? (that is which season do you prefer)
    SUMMER!! Summer Summer Summer. All the way. 
  5. What is the one thing you wish you were good at that you currently struggle with?
    Procrastination. I’m so bad with it. In a way it is laziness. In another way, its fear of overdoing it. 
  6. Would you prefer to work, or go to school as a student?
    If I was well enough, I’d love to study. But I’d also love to work! I miss the work relationships and feeling of having accomplished something. The importance of having a destination you have to get to, that isn’t a doctors appointment. 
  7. What is one thing you haven’t tried that you would like to have a go at?
    I want to do coaching with RDA (Riding for the Disabled Assoc.). Oakford was the place I was happiest at before I moved to the country, and now that I’m back, I’m hoping that eventually I will be well enough to visit one day a week and help with admin work, at least. 
  8. If you had a million dollars to donate to a charity, which on would you choose?
    Does it all have to go to one charity? Because there are so many! I’ve often daydreamed about how I’d spent money if I won the lottery, and most of it would go to various charities. Disabled charities, animal rescues, things to improve the life quality of those who don’t have the best.
  9. If you were to open a business, what product or service would you offer?
    I’ve been asked if I sell my cards, and I always say no. I’m such a perfectionist, it takes me hours just to be happy with the design of a card! But I do love craft when I’m well enough. 
    I suppose I could be a bed tester! I’ll tell the companies how comfortable their beds are to sleep on 🙂
  10. What 3 things would you change in your local community if you were elected mayor?
    Something has to be done about the housing situation. Everyone seems to be moving to Perth, and there’s no where to put them. Rent prices have sky rocketed, to the most expensive place to live in Australia. Even if I were well enough to look after myself, I couldn’t afford to live anywhere but at home. 


Here are my nominees: I’m sorry there are only 5, I guess I haven’t spent enough time reading new blogs lately, as several I was following have disappeared. 

    Your words reminded me just how important and beautiful words can be. I hope you will continue to post- your writing makes me feel as though I know you. 
    Such creative and talented writing, I hope to hear more from you. Its been a bit quiet.
    I appreciate the honesty in your blogs and your self reflection. I do a lot of it myself, so I feel a connection to you in that regard.
    You work so hard to keep yourself together and its very admirable. You also post a lot about mental health awareness and I like that you are educating your readers.
    I really look forward to reading more by you. Your posts are intelligent and insightful.
