~raining liebster awards~

Hey, it’s lovely to log in to WordPress to discover an award!

Recently Cathie from the wonderful blog Help with your life nominated me for this Liebster award 🙂  Cathie is a published author, so knows what she is talking about and she is committed to helping people help themselves – her blog is a joy to read and full of wise words.

And today Maria-Teresa from one of my favourite blogs, Sugar and Spice Baking nominated me again! Quel bonheur! I love the funny sketches Maria-Teresa finds and inserts into her posts and also her delicious recipes.

The rules for accepting this award seem to have changed since my previous nomination  and this time I should

  1. Answer the questions proposed by the people who nominated me.
  2. Select worthy bloggers for the award.
  3. Pose new questions to the new nominees.

So here goes with Cathies questions – the first thing that pops into my head when I read her questions is …..

  • What inspires you?
  • My family
  • What is your favorite dessert?
  • anything chocolate or apple
  • What is your favorite comedy?
  • Black books
  • When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
  • After watching Olga Korbut,  I wanted to be a gymnast
  • Why did you start a blog?
  • To make finding my recipes easier- no matter where I am.
  • What is your favorite part of blogging?
  • Reading
  • What would be the name of your ‘reality show’ to describe your life?

  • If you were to give a speech on any topic, what would it be?
  • gobbledygook
  • If you changed your name, what would you change it to?
  • Wouldn’t change it, lots of variations anyway – Candida, Candy, Ca, Candy pie, even Cacaruckasti!
  • What is your dream career?
  • anything to do with beautiful things
  • If money was no object, where would you live and why?
  • home, it’s where my heart is 🙂
