New Year’s Honours

Today I’m honoured.  Not with an OBE or MBE but with something much more special… the Liebster Award thanks to Nick!

Liebster Award

To find out more about Nick visit his thoughts and no-nonsense straight talking on current events, work and family.   All I can say is thank you Nick, you made my day after a darned, dastardly and altogether dodgy year.

The Liebster leaves me in no doubt that 2013 will get better every day… but before I skip over the hills into a beautiful new dawn I have responsibilities to fulfil and “Dutiful” is my middle name.  So to work:

  • Post 11 random things about myself
  • Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated me
  • Pose 11 new questions to other bloggers (link to let them know)

11 Random Things About Me

  • I’m teaching myself Gaelic for fun in 2013.
  • I’m fascinated by mythology.

  • Sparkling mango juice is my new vice.
  • I’m already way too excited about seeing Muse live with my son in May.
  • I’d like to learn to play Bassoon.
  • I’m part of B4Peace.
  • In 2012 I grew an orchid past its flowering season. I’ve never managed it before.

  • Likewise for pate on toast but no more than once a fortnight!

  2. Thank you all for your kindness and support because without you I would not be as inspired to write, ramble, muse or mull over. Life to me is about the tiny threads of silk connecting us all together and making us greater than the sum of our parts. That is what you all do for me, you connect me and make me more than I am or dreamt I would be.

    I will never be able to thank you enough for such a gift.


  3. Another Award for FEC-THis. You are going to need to add a trophy room to your house, Tracy. Congrats, again. I hope you realize these awards are your readers telling you, “We love you, Tracy.” I love your answers to the 11 questions, especially 5 and 7. Thanks for the nomination. {{{Hugs}}}
