A big thank you to Strawberry Squeeze for nominating Louis and Mel for the Liebster Award.
Apparently there are rules attached to the reception of such an award, the latter being:
- This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
- The award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.
- Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves (Eleven! That’s a lot!).
- Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
- Choose 5 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
- Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
- No tag backs.
Eleven facts about me:
- I can put my right foot in my mouth – well, not the whole foot. Perhaps a few centimetres beyond my toes.
- I climbed up a tree in flip flops recently. A great achievement, I know.
- I am fluent in English and French y puedo hablar un poco de Español.
- I’ve visited twenty countries by my count. Not bad, eh?
- My knees crack every time I bend down.
- I have a rather weak gag reflex, which is one of the many reasons why my dentist loves me.
- I have taught myself to play both the piano and the ukulele.
- I’ve lived in three countries.
- I once stood up on a toilet to talk to my friend on the other side of the stall (as we always did in elementary school) and my foot slipped into the toilet bowl. I sloshed back to class, very embarrassed.
- I’m very good at archery.
- I enjoy holding my breath and lying at the bottom of pools to look up at the sky/ceiling.
