Tagged Again

I was tagged once again with a slightly different Liebster Award by Farrah Lily of Cosy Comforts & Dolls  (thank you for the tag!)

I would think most of my readers have probably heard of the Liebster Award before, but for those who haven't, it’s a fun award to give to blogs you enjoy, that have fewer than 1,000 followers. If you’re chosen for an award, and if you choose to accept the award, there are a few rules:

1. You have to link the person that gave you the award
2. Answer the questions they’ve chosen for you
3. Pass the award along to more bloggers who have less than 1,000 readers/followers
4. Ask them 11 questions
5. Let them know you’ve given them the award

1. Who is your favourite cartoon character?
I've never really been into cartoons enough to have a favourite, but Sylvester would come close.

2. What’s your favourite flower (or plant if you’re not a flower person)? I have several favourites. Lilacs, Sweet Pea and Lily of the Valley because they remind me of my childhood, my Gran grew them in her garden. For fragrance in my garden; the Double Delight rose, it has the most beautiful perfume. For a cut flower; Gerberas, they are so cheery and welcoming.


3. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I'm quite adventurous when it comes to food and enjoy trying different cuisines, but I can't say I have ever eaten anything weird.

4. What was the last movie you saw (at home or in a theatre)?
Friday evening I watched The Butler, it had a great cast, but I was a little disappointed that Alan Rickman didn't have a longer playing role, he only appeared towards the end of the film.

5. If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go?
I could visit any country, but I'd prefer to see more of Australia. This is a big country and there is heaps to see and enjoy here. However, if I had to travel overseas, I'd probably choose Japan or the UK.


6. How did you meet your best friend?
My best friend is my hubby and met him at a wine tasting. My best girlfriend, I met at work and we have been friends longer than I care to mention. :)

7. What is your dream job?
Hey I'm retired, what more could I ask for? I've had all the dream jobs I could wish for and thoroughly enjoyed them all.

8. If you could make a custom doll based on any character or real person, who would you make?
I have absolutely no idea at this point in time.

9. What’s your favourite season? Definitely summer, I hate the cold!


10. If you could talk to/understand any one species of animal, what would you choose?
My dog Coco, I talk to him all the time and when he looks up at me, I know he's trying to tell me something, I can see it in his eyes. Most of the time I can read his body language, but there are times when it would be wonderful if he could speak.


11. If you could instantly learn any language, what would you choose?
French, it's the only subject I failed at school!!

I am not going to tag individual blogs this time, I'll leave it up to my readers to decide if they want to do it again, the questions are different this time. :)

Keeping with the same as I was given, here they are ~

1. Who is your favourite cartoon character?
2. What’s your favourite flower (or plant if you’re not a flower person)?
3. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
4. What was the last movie you saw (at home or in a theatre)?
5. If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go?
6. How did you meet your best friend?
7. What is your dream job?
8. If you could make a custom doll based on any character or real person, who would you make?
9. What’s your favourite season?
10. If you could talk to/understand any one species of animal, what would you choose?
11. If you could instantly learn any language, what would you choose?

Thanks again for nominating me, Farrah, these questions made me think, but it was fun all the same!

  2. Thanks for sharing your answers. I do always love to read these.

    I failed French too but that was second year of Uni! I couldn't understand my teacher even when she was speaking English!

    I love the name Lily of the Valley. Such a nice name for a flower.

    Have you ever tried snails? I've only ever tried them once before but they were in filo pastry so tasted more like chicken to me.

    1. Hi Alasse,
      Oh my we do have other things in common besides dolls eh?
      No, I haven't tried snails and I don't think I'd want to. But I am cooking Thai tonight. :)
      Hugs.

  3. These posts are very lovely to read! :) I can relate to the wish for hearing the dogs thoughts. Had a dog in my childhood and even if we could understand each other, I sometimes wished he could talk.
    And lily of the valley is a favorite too, we have lots of those flowers at our cottage!
    Have a lovely new week!

    1. Hubby loved Bugs Bunny, so we often used to watch them together when the kids were little. :)
      Maybe one day Irene, but for now I am having too much fun in Oz.

  6. Hi Sandi!

    These posts are always fun to read and let them know a little bit more of that person who is on the other side of the screen.

    I was very bad at French too, especially at speaking because it made me have a weird strong accent, now I can't remember much of it TT__TT

    Speaking with words with dogs would be great, meanwhile we'll keep reading their body language.

    Greetings.

  7. Hi Lily,
    I'm glad you enjoyed it.
    Being able to speak with dogs would certainly be helpful for you with your dog grooming. :)
