I recently had a third Liebster award bestowed on me by Jo. Now Jo writes two blogs called Through the Keyhole and The Good Life both of which are well worth a visit. Since I've already done two previous Liebster posts (here and here), I've decided to make this a very mini one and only answer a few of Jo's questions and then pass the award to a few other blogs.
First I will give you three random facts about myself.
- I was going to be called Ruth but then my parents changed their minds and called me Gillian. No other names apart from my surname.
- I'm afraid of heights. Even seeing someone on a height on TV or in a photo makes me really anxious. I suppose it's not really the height that is the problem but being near an unprotected edge when I'm up high. It's getting worse; sometimes I feel like I can hardly breathe so try to avoid the situation if at all possible.
- I love coffee creams.
What is your dream holiday destination?
In May last year we had the opportunity to have what could only be described as a dream holiday. You can read about it here, here, here, and here. I also love visiting Skye for a holiday and must have been there ten times in the past eight years. You can read about our latest holiday there, last September, in this post, this, this and this. To be honest, it isn't so much the destination that makes a dream holiday but who you are with. Getting away to somewhere relaxing with good places to visit is my dream holiday. It doesn't even matter about the weather.
The earliest memories I have would be from Peru. I remember seeing a snake climbing over the fence into our garden. I'm not sure what happened to it after that! It was a small snake. Another time I saw two men carrying an enormous snake which they had presumably been responsible for killing. They seemed pretty pleased with themselves. That's two memories but they're both about snakes so that's alright.
What is your favourite season and why?
This is very hard to answer for I like all the seasons. Winter is good because I love Christmas and being able to snuggle up in warm clothes and blankets. Summer is good for getting out in the garden. Spring and Autumn are beautiful when things are just coming back to life or beginning to die away; both make spectacular displays.
I'm going to pass on the Liebster award to the following blogs:
Valentina at Weaving Olden Patterns
Amalia at handmade by amalia
and Marco at Marco Alpha Fotografie
This is what you need to do, please:
- tell us three random facts about yourself
- answer the three questions below
- nominate three bloggers for the award and let them know that they've been nominated
These are the three questions:
- do you prefer to cook for yourself or to eat out?
- would you like to be famous?
- is it better to have enough money to live comfortably or would you rather be rich?
Thanks again to Jo for nominating me for the award this time.
The title of the post said this was also an update. Just a quick update on the garden. Look what the husband made with the willow grown in the garden.
It's a frame for growing sweet pea. Some have already been planted at the base and I can't wait for them to flower in the summer.
We also bought some Norway Spruce and Scots pine. They are still very small. They are in our 'nursery' bed until they get a bit bigger.
Of course, at this time of year, no post would be complete without some photos of our snowdrops.
All the best for now. Sorry it's been so long and I hope I'll be back again very soon. Must go and make some pancakes!
