Wow what a start to the day, I woke up to my first award! Ok, so it’s not technically an award for my writing but it’s still an award and I’m chuffed to bits to have been chosen for it! And would like to thank Naïve Nancy whole heartedly for the nomination! I’d also like to thank………..(eeeee I’ve always wanted to do this!)…….my mam for being the strong confident women she is and has helped me to become, all those people who know the real me and still love me; my amazing husband, my girls, my sister, my best friend (Lynne Gater), my Dad and my step-mam for always believing in me, I could go on but I’ll leave it there, except I also have to thank you, my followers reading these words, without you I’d just be talking to myself again so thank you for reading and coming back time and time again, I love ya!

So what is the Liebster award I hear you ask? Well it’s an online award to recognise and discover new bloggers just like myself and once you’ve been nominated you have to pass it onto others so please check out my links at the bottom but before you run off, there are some things I have to do for my award, which are; post 11 facts about myself, answer 11 questions I was asked by Naïve Nancy (who blogs about sex so wait until you see my questions!) and then ask fellow bloggers 11 new questions. This is quite a challenge but I’m always up for that.
