The Liebster Award…Nominated by Mumma Knows x

This week I was kindly nominated by Mumma Knows for the Liebster Award.  But what is this award? Will their be a red carpet, what will I wear to accept it? 

I quickly learnt that the Liebster Award is a way to get to know new bloggers and encourage them to participate in a Q&A.  So thankfully all snug in my loungewear (posh for PJs) I get to answer Mumma Knows questions, without a sequin or plunge neckline in sight (I best bin that acceptance speech). Thanks for the nomination x

Mummy Knows Questions to me…

Were you married before or after kids and does getting married before kids matter to you?

My husband and I were married Sept 2013 and we tried for Henry following our Honeymoon.  It didn’t matter to me so much that we were married before, however it was something my husband felt strongly about.  However looking back, I do love that we did it first as it was a lovely year celebrating each other before Little Monkey took over our lives. 

Would you rather live in the country or the city?

Oh this is a good one.  Both? I currently live in Liverpool and I love the vibrancy of the city and you just can’t beat the people.  However there is something beautiful about the peacefulness of the country.  My inlaws live in Hawkesbury and we love visiting them and going for long walks that inevitably end up in a country pub. We currently live in Woolton Village and our house backs onto Camp Hill and Woolton Woods.  So we have a beautiful view of trees from our windows.  So I guess we have a little bit of country in our city. 

Would you rather go to a big party or have coffee with a close friend?

Coffee for sure. I’ve been lucky to have been on maternity leave with my best friend and our coffee and cake days have brought us so much closer.  The same with the girls I met during my NCT classes.  We try to get together once a week over calorific cakes and brews. 

Why did you start blogging?

Because my husband told me too, haha.  He encouraged me to find my voice and have fun creating a diary of my life and Henry’s. And I love it.  Just don’t tell him that, haha.  

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Right now. All wrapped up at home with Henry, making memories and building bonds.  Oh and with a lovely cup of coffee.  

What do you do when your kids are napping?

Blog. Clean. Shower. Dress. Eat. Drink cold coffee. Watch him sleep. 

What is your favourite thing to blog about?

My son Henry.  He never fails to make me laugh, even after keeping me up all night and being an absolute grump when he’s overtired.  He keeps my life entertaining and my blog (I think) worth reading. Oh and Mummy Mondays when i’ve lost weight, haha,
