Liebster Award #3

Thanks bunches to the lovely Tummy Mummy for nominating me for a Liebster award 🙂 Check out her blog – I love this quote that I have stolen from her Liebster post:
“I want to make the point that whilst becoming a mother is significant and wonderful, you still remain a woman with your own interests.”
How fabulous, and very well put. She also shares my admiration for Frog and Toad, as you can see from her twitter header.

Here are the rules for all those taking part:
1. Acknowledge and thank the person that nominated you.
2. Use an award image to add to the post.
3. Answer 11 questions given to you
4. Nominate up to 11 blogs
5. Don’t forget to let them know!
6. Give them 11 questions to answer.
Here are her questions for me:
1. Are you happy to be nominated?
Yes, of course! It is always nice when anyone says anything nice about your blog, shares or retweets a post, or takes the time to comment – gives you a good feeling to know that all those hits you’ve been getting aren’t all your mum 🙂 Although, I am also glad that my mum likes my blog. Hi Mum!
2. What makes a good blog?
I like it when I feel like someone has a real voice – they are talking to you, telling you something they really want you to know about because it is their passion. Whatever the subject matter, passion gets me every time.
3. Why did you start blogging?
Initially, to go alongside my tapestry design business, which is also called NipperAndTyke, but it really has taken on a life of its own now!

4. You have three wishes, what are they?
Oooh, great question! Teleportation would be awesome. My other two might make me sound a bit like Miss World, but an end to persecution and oppression.
5. What’s your favourite colour and why?
I love green. My engagement ring has a green tourmaline in it – it is beautiful.
6. If you were an animal, what would you be?
Probably a cat, but not my cat. The poor dear is accosted on the daily by my pair of marauderers a bit too much for my liking. Poor sweet Juno.

I spend most of every day being accosted by them as it is, so I think i’d be my mum and dad’s cat, Tilly, who is a pampered puss with her own sofa. She is also is stunningly pretty 🙂
7. How terrible are my questions?
Um, I think you’re doing alright, actually 🙂 (Number 10 is a bit random!)
8. Do you think your questions will be better?
Maybe, no pressure…
9. Why did you pick your blog username?
I have two children who take it in turns to be the fairly innocuous Nipper or the crazy Tyke. I named my business this, and my blog is named after that.
10. Do you like trains?
They get you from A to B and they are better than buses, for sure. Not a patch on hot air balloons or hover-boards, but not the worst either.
11. What is your favourite season?
It has to be summer, I love the warm weather. Also, I am a teacher and that part of the year is so fun at school, as long as you can discount all the exams the government want us to do from a ridiculously young age – but get all that crap out of the way and you’re golden.
The first sunny day when everyone is just so pleased, and people get carried away with their optimistic outfit choices, and everyone is smiling at each other is the best part, though. Full of promise for good times ahead. The end of summer feels a bit sad for me; an ending. Although Autumn has lots of fun times in store too.
My nominees are:
My questions are:
  1.  If you could have a superpower, what would you go for?
  2. What hobbies do you enjoy, with all that free time of yours 😉 ?
  3. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
  4. If you were to enrol at university tomorrow, what would you study?
  5. If someone were to buy you a present, what you would you secretly wish for?
  6. What is your favourite post ? What was it about and what inspired you to write it?

I’m only doing six questions (sorry).

  1. Aw thank you for the nomination – I think your designs are lovely and your engagement ring is beautiful :). Your poor cat suffers from the same affliction as ours does he now spends most of his time outdoors trying to escape! Lol. Cxx

  2. Thank you very much. I agree, your designs are really lovely. I’m happy we’re in your fave season too. Great answers. But, my, you have posed some tough questions!
    One of the things I really love about this is finding lots of other blogs to follow and read…so I have duly done that part at least, thank you!

  3. The cat is pretty! The tapestries are not bad, either (awesome, actually)! These questions were hilarious. I also loved Frog & Toad. I think oppression could actually be ended using teleportation. That is all.
