liebster award

I received the 'liebster' blog award from Evdokia who is the owner of 'have a kookie' blog. Thank you E. So firstly I must tell you 11 random things about myself, followed by answering the 11 questions Evdokia asked me and then finally I must pass this on to 11 blogs that I follow that have less than 300 followers, with 11 questions of my own, so here goes.

Bits about me

  • one of my toes is bent a different way from the other toes and I blame my mum
  • I always sing in the shower and it often ends up me singing the same three songs, Mr Sandman, Baby mine from dumbo and or Que Sera Sera sometimes songs by Mirah or NIna Nastasia pop up every now and again oh and Dusty Springfields 'The windmills of your mind'
  • Every single Wes Anderson film is amazing
  • I was an East 17 girl not a take that one
  • Sometimes I stay in bed until 12
  • I wish I was in a band sometimes
  • I love to eat crisps
  • I eat too many crisps
  • the sound of leaves crunching under my feet in autumn is a favourite
  • I've found the person I will grow old with
  • I really enjoy making popcorn but always get the kernels stuck in my teeth

Questions from Evdokia

1. day or night?    Day and night? Can I put that? I enjoy both equally for different reasons, day is good for beautiful walks and night is great for films,food,wine and cosiness.

2. the song that makes you feel good.  this song

3. big city or small town? small town, I have lived in a few big cities and enjoyed my time there very much but now I prefer more rural areas and familiar faces

4. if you could choose your name which one would it be? Rocky

5. your favorite animal? snow leopard 

6. round, triangle or square? tricky one, I guess square is what I use post, I like framing something, but I do love circles on clothing and triangles for jewellery.

7. which was the last movie you saw? this one and it was beautiful 

8. your favorite smell. I enjoy smelling my partners neck when we hug, it's familiar and comforting

9. a cup of tea or a cup of coffee? tea always, from a pot preferably 

10. first thing to do in the morning. feed my kitten

11. first thought comes to your head. was checking whether feeding my kitten was the first thing I did, and realised putting the heating on is the first thing at the moment because it's so cold, then feed kitten.

The blogs I choose not including yours Evdokia, but I would choose yours if you hadn't sent it to me;
