An award for me!

How lovely a Liebster award for me from Danya of Danya Banya!

So what is a Liebster Award? The award is given to support and recognise up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers (on their blog) or likers (on their Facebook page). The word “Liebster” apparently has German origins and is reported to mean sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
By following some basic rules:
  •  answer 11 questions set by your nominee 
  •  write 11 additional facts about yourself 
  • write 11 new questions of your own and pass the award onto 11 other bloggers to answer
It enables readers to get to know new bloggers and connect with a wider audience.

Here are  my 11 questions from Danya answered

  1. What's the best advise you've ever received? Be content with what you have
