The Liebster Award

I am most humbled and honoured to receive multiple nominations for the Liebster Award.  No, really.  Truly honoured.  I have received at least 6 nominations (that I know of!)

Phew, that's a lot of questions to answer!  Unfortunately though, by HoH decree I won't be answering everyone's questions.  My husband has been watching my internet and blogging time recently and is starting to get concerned at the amount of time I spend on the computer.  As some of you may know, this has been an issue previously.

So, I am going to behave and obey my husband (like a good submissive wife) and only answer one set of questions.  As Cat was the first to nominate me I'll answer her questions.  I sincerely apologise to my other nominators.  I do appreciate your nominations and thank you for thinking of me.

The rules:
  1. When one receives the award, one posts 11 random facts about oneself and answers the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  2. Pass the award onto 11 other blogs (while making sure one notifies the blogger that one nominated them!)
  3. One writes up 11 NEW questions directed towards YOUR nominees.
  4. One is not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated one's own blog!
  5. One pastes the award picture into one's blog. (You can google the image, there are plenty of them!)

Here are Cat's questions and my answers:

  1. What animal would you be and why? Well, my nickname is Scrappy Doo 
  2. What food do you absolutely refuse to eat? Any kind of seafood 
  3. Leather or wood? Definitely leather! 
  4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Hmm, have to think more on that one 
  5. What is your favorite kind of music? I'm a rock chick 
  6. Could you turn your phone off for 24 hours without a panic attack? If I did my husband would have a panic attack! (we have rules around these things) 
  7. What is your favorite time of day? Evening - sunset - romantic Ahh (sorry, I digress) 
  8. How many pets do you have? 2 pain in the *ss darling cats 
  9. Scariest sound? The sound of my husband removing his belt (depending on the reason *wink*) 
  10. Why did you decide to start blogging? I'm beginning to wonder! Just kidding. So I could meet you lot and enjoy your company (of course - Sheesh!) 
  11. Why do you think you were nominated for this award? No idea - Cat? 

Eleven things you didn't want need to know about me:
  1. In a previous life my partner and I had sled dogs which we used to race
  2. I was born in the UK
  3. Patience is not my virtue
  4. I am guaranteed to be the shortest person in blogland
  5. I am a complete heat seeker.  My husband calls me the heat seeking missile
  6. I have OCD tendencies
  7. I am mathematically challenged
  8. I am geographically challenged
  9. I'm a complete night owl and insomniac 
  10. I am a Bon Jovi fan and got a smile and wave from Jon Bon Jovi at the last concert I attended (and nothing more - dammit)
  11. I have an irrational fear of spiders and other creepy crawlies

I tried to think of people to nominate who had not already received a nomination and struggled to come up with 11.

I nominate Doc, Dopey, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Bashful, Snow White, Prince Charming.

My Questions for you:

I wonder what the answers to these will be?  Feel free to answer some of these in the comments :)
  1. Are you jealous of Prince Charming?
  2. Who is the fairest in blogland?
  3. Has Snow White ever been otk?
  4. Do you like apples?
  5. How big is Prince Charming's sword?
  6. What is Sneezy allergic to?
  7. Is Doc really a Doc?
  8. What drug is Happy on, and can I have some?
  9. How often does Snow White have a red booty? (wouldn't be very noticeable)
  10. Are you jealous of tall people?
  11. Does the Song Hi Ho, Hi Ho  ever get boring?


  1. Well played shorty. Well played.

    1. Hi Wilma, thank you my friend. I am sorry I didn't get to your questions :( blame Rick!

      Love and Hugs

      BTW - Rick loves the haircut (phew!). I did have a battle with my friend though, she was determined to cut more off! I was also very lucky not to get in trouble that night!

    2. PHEW is right! And I'm glad you're staying up late didn't get you in hot water either!

  2. I loved reading more about you Roz! Good job on your post and fun ending as well. Take care.

    1. HI SNP, thank you, glad you liked the ending :)


  3. Cute questions!
    I like your comment about patience not being your virtue. :D

    1. Hi Ana, thank you :)

      Ah yes, I definitely don't have much patience. Something that gets me into trouble from time to time, and not going to bed, and texting and ... Oh Ok there's a lot that gets me in trouble Lol


  4. Snow White certainly has had a few moments OTK.
    The spider thing....I have shivers just saying spider. A spider in my bedroom would insure I not sleep their until it was gone. Frankly it would find me wherever I was in my house. ewwwww!

    1. Hi Minelle, Yep, I definitely think so too. ALL of her can't be Snow White all of the time surely? That just wouldn't do!

      I have a great fear of the New Zealand weta too, almost more than spiders. Nasty looking things but pretty harmless. You should google a picture.

      I am sorry I didn't get to your questions. Blame my husband!


  5. Hey there my fellow impatient, geographically challenged, night owl - thanks for playing. Your answers were fun and your questions/nominations are outstanding! The reason you were chosen? Love your sense of humor.


    1. Hi Cat, thank you my friend. Seems we have a few things in common. Including our sense of humour maybe :)


  6. Good post and loved your questions.


    1. Hi Ronnie, thank you, glad you enjoyed the questions :)


  7. Seriously loved the nominations! Heat-seeking missile -- too cute. I take it you're often cold? I am as well. Cael usually just says I'm made of sticks and tissue paper.

    1. Hi Riley, my fellow cold Bon Jovi fan Lol (got that last bit from your comment on Ward and June's Blog - So excited they are touring next year)! I am definitely a heat seeking missile lol. Glad we are into spring here!

      Glad you enjoyed the nominations :)


  8. There are a lot of short women in Blogland.
    is that a sign that most HoH's are lazy and look for easy prey?

    Good lord, I did google that New Zealand Weta.
    Strike New Zealand from my bucket list.
    I will never be afraid of harmless little spiders anymore.
    (When there's a spider in the room I yell for Lisa. She is brave.)

    1. Hi Bas, Lol, yes there does seem to be a lot of vertically challenged Women in blogland ...hmm, I wonder Lol

      What - an HoH afraid of insects? Rick picks up the spiders and puts them outside for me. He has a habit of showing them to me first though, just to torment me, and even pats them! eeew

      Please don't strike us from your bucket list.

      Hugs, Roz

      PS looking forward to the intergalactic slave trader story :)

  9. having fun reading your posts...I am 5'10" so I don't think I am envious of tall peole...I don't like sea food either, and am mathematically and geographically challenged as well. :-) And I do like apples...Take care, Terps
