The Leibster Award

Lynette, of Life’s Better in Yoga Pants nominated me for the Leibster Award and seeing as it’s a Friday…Boxing Day an’ all …a bit of light heartedness wouldn’t go a miss 🙂 It’s taken me, maybe over a year to actually publish this post, so no better time than the present!

The (unverified) rules state that you must answer the questions set to you by the nominating blogger so here are my answers to Lynette’s questions…

1. What is your favorite thing to do in the fall?

Snuggle under a thick warm duvet, with the smell of fresh linen…and probably blog / read / watch TV 🙂
