Liebster Award for blogs I love to read....

I am pretty new to the blogging world both as a reader and a writer and I often wonder is anyone actually listening, do they really want to hear my thoughts as I waffle on into the blogesphere.

Well apparently they do. 

A big thank you to Bruise Mouse from over at living a little greener for this award.  When ever I read her blog I feel part of the action and I am currently enjoying (vicariously) the trials of moving to a new county and cooking in an unfamiliar kitchen with ingredients in a different language.  Plus there is the world tour you get along the way.

This award is given to bloggers with under 200 followers. Here are the rules:
1. Thank the giver and link back to them.  Done.

2. Reveal your 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

Wendy over at Duchess Declutter always has something interesting on the go and at the moment you can pop over and check out her coffee plantation.

Daffodil is living on her Little piece of green and loves to share with us her great op shop finds, ethical butchering and her adventures in the saddle.  She has bee a bit quite of late so I hope all is well and hope she comes back to play soon.

Nellymary inspires me with her great ideas and gives great instructions on how to do a lot of practical things at Just like my nan made I couldn't see her followers so hopefully I have not broken the rules.

Oh no so many great blogs and only 5 awards to give out.... this is not easy.

Well I have to make mention of the great story telling abilities of Veggiegobbler who recently shared with us the story of her faith in mankind.

And finally Hazel who is currently hearing voices and brought tears of laughter to my eyes with posts such as Vera's Vagina.

3. Copy and paste award to your blog.  Done!

4. Have faith that your followers will pass the love to other bloggers. Halleluia I have faith... oh not that kind of faith.  Well I still have it.

5. And most of all, have Bloggity-blog fun.  Yep got that covered.

This was a fun exercise but with so many great blogs out there it was hard too choose.


  1. Fiona, congratulations on your Liebster Blog award....and thank-you so much for including me in your top 5....I'm chuffed to bits. I've seen Wendy's coffee plantation, amazing! & Vegiegobbler always has some interesting to check them all out....Thanks again!

  2. Thank you Fiona...I feel very honoured! I feel like I am in esteemed company as you have awarded some of my favourite blogs. I will follow through next week.

  3. You are so sweet - thank you Fiona. I'm thrilled to be a recipient! I will have a few thinks about who to pass this onto. So many fabulous blogs out there. Congrats to my fellow recipients too. This blogging thing is fun isn't it? cheers Wendy

  4. Congratulations Fiona and thank you. I love reading your blog and I love reading the blogs of your recipients too. Now I'll need to get to work and write something up tonight. Which is good because being Sat night I am alone again (never marry a musician) and although I love crap TV, TV is really very crap on Sat nights.

  5. You are very welcome, Fiona. And thank you for the lovely comments. I will have a great time reading your 5 some of which are new to me.

  6. Thank you, Fiona.Yes, I have been Blog AWOL, life has been very interetsing down here, but not in a blog reading kind of way.

    I will return to blogland soon.

    I still check in very occasionally to my bloggie faves (of which you are one, most certainly!)


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Thanks for taking the time to comment
