this little house has been nominated for an award by Katie, make sure you click and check out her lovely blog!
when i started this blog the only people i thought would be the least bit interested where my mum (well she did give birth to me) and my husband (i'm sure this falls under our vows). so to be recognised by a fellow blogger is amazing. not a bad way to start a snowy monday morning!

so a liebster award you ask? yes that was my question exactly, what???

liebster is a german word which pretty much means dearest, beloved. (ah thanks katie!)
the liebster award is awarded to up and coming blogs with less then 200 followers. you must link back to the person that nominated you and answer the 11 questions that they set. you then nominate 11 blogs you think deserve the award and set them 11 questions.

so here goes...

1. Who do you admire?
easy, my mum. her strength always continues to amaze me. having become a mum myself this last year i never fully appreciated how much i broke her heart by moving away. well now i do, and the fact she's always supported my choices makes me admire her all the more. i hope i can be the mother to caleb that she has to me. 

2. What is your dream job?
i'm a trained actor so for a while i did live my dream job, but dreams change. the answer now, a mother, and nobody is more surprised by that answer than me!

3. What is your idea of the ultimate adventure?
discovering and exploring new places. experiencing their culture and stepping into whatever their pace of life is.

4. If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?
