Day 28: The Liebster Award

I’ve just been nominated for this award by Rebecca Rose ( and I couldn’t be more grateful! Her blog is so interesting, and I’m sure you’ll all love it, so go and have a look.

She asked a number of questions which I’ll be answering here, then I’ll leave a list of people that I’m nominating for the award too, and some questions for them to answer.

What was your worst travel experience?

I’ve been very very lucky. You hear some horror stories about holidays going wrong due to bad travel experiences, but I’ve never had anything that bad… Maybe a few hour delays here and there?

What is the furthest you’ve been away from home?

Hmm… I don’t go away very much, and most of my holidays when I was younger were UK holidays. The furthest is probably the Canary Islands, I went for two weeks with all my family when I was 11, and I went for 10 days last summer with my boyfriend.

Where would you like to live in the future?

Ive not really considered living outside of the UK, but offer me a villa in the south of France and I don’t think I’d turn you down. Realistically, I can see myself living in a nice, fairly modern (though I do love the old antique style house) host, big garden, and lots of lovely things to fill the house with! I’d have so much fun decorating it!

Would you like to have children one day? If so, how many?

I definitely want children in a few years. I’m 22 now, so perhaps in 6-10 years? I’d like two- I was an only child an and it was sometimes a little lonely, but I’m not sure I coupl could cope with three!

What is your all-time favourite book?

Wow, this is a tough question! I adore reading, and I’ve read so much that this is actually very difficult to answer… I’m going to cheat a little and tell you a few of my favourites, I hope you don’t mind! The Harry Potter series will always have a special place in my heart- I loved them so much as a kid, and even now I still go back to them because they are so well written, and who doesn’t love a bit of magic?! I also love anything that is historical fiction- my favourites are the Cousins War series by Phillipa Gregory, and my favourite from that set of books has to be The White Queen. It’s well worth a read if you haven’t already!

What is your pet peeve?

I hate laziness. If someone can’t be bothered to do something it can really bug me, especially when it cam comes to bring organised. I hate my bed being unmade, and things like that!

What is your worst habit?

I’d have to agree with Rebecca for this one- biting/picking my nails. I love when my nails grow our nicely, but I also end up biting them if I’m nervous or thinking hard.

If you were going to die in 24 hours, what three things would you do in the time you had left?

Ooh, thats a tough one! I’d meet up with my parents and my grandad (or call them if that wasn’t possible) and chat to them for as long as we needed to. I’d get all my friends together and have a last meal together- maybe a Chinese takeaway while playing a game and chatting? I’d then take lots of photos, print them out and make sure there were enough for all my friends and family.

What do you think is your biggest achievement?

Graduating from university with a First Class Honours Degree.

Would you rather visit the world 100 years in the past or 100 years in the future?

Definitely the past. A part of me wishes I’d lived in the past, in the time of court life as it was in the historical fiction novels.
I’d like to nominate the following people for this award:




The Beauty Stage


My questions for these bloggers are:

How and why did you start blogging?

What would your dream holiday be?

What do you prefer: books or films?

What’s your dream job, and do you ever think that job will be yours?

What’s your favourite thing to do in your spare time?

I love reading their blog posts, so definitely go and check them out! They’ve also been very supportive to me, liking and commenting such lovely things on my posts, so I’m very grateful to then, and to all of you who read my blog!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and again, thank you for all the support you give me and to Rebecca for nominating me! If you’d like to answer these questions in the comments I’d love to hear from you!

Until tomorrow,

Clare .X.
