Liebster Award - paying it forward

Hello!  It's a windy morning here in Sydney but my very own whirlwinds have vacated the house and I'm getting busy with my tasks of the day.

The most exciting and enjoyable one is to pay forward a lovely award that I've been gifted by Jane over at Life on Planet Baby.

Jane is what blogging is all about to me - she gives of herself through what she shares with us on her blog and she gives of herself through her thoughtful and enriching comments that she leaves on the blogs of others.  Thank you Jane for giving me this lovely award!

The Award works like this:
  • Each person must post 11 facts about themselves
  • Answer 11 questions the tagger has given you and provide 11 questions for the people you tag
  • Choose 11 people and link them to your post (they must have 200 followers or less
  • Tell the people you have tagged.
So Let's Get Started!

Love this description!

My friends that read my blog will agree this is a canny desciption of my positive attributes (particularly the final two lines!!!!)
On the other hand, the ledger also has an opposing side....
