Liebster Blog Award

I was hugely surprised (& honoured) to be nominated for a Liebster Blog Award recently! Thank you so much to Cass over at We Should Be Folding Laundry. If you haven't had a chance yet, do pop over & check out some of her gorgeous lunches & fantastic recipes.

After picking myself up off the floor, my next question was - what is this award? I found this little write up about the origins. I was able to find reference to this award back in 2001, but I didn't delve any further. Suffice to say this is a lovely way of fellow bloggers recognising & supporting each other. Here is what Cass had to say about it:

     Movies for the time, books for the story. . .does that make sense?
7. What inspired you to start your blog?

8. What is your dream job and are you currently doing it?
     I used to dream of being a movie reviewer - being paid to watch movies all day - yeah! But then I thought of all the awful ones I'd have to watch. Right now I'd say cooking (without the cleaning) someone elses' recipes. . . maybe become someone's test kitchen. Or someone could pay me to sleep :-)

     Food! And movies, TV, once upon a time I could also say computer games but then I had Miss M
