Liebster Award :)

The ever kind-hearted Derek kindly nominated us miserable, lazy, undeserving bloggers with a Liebster Award.  Derek is our favorite blogger, whose comments are always so kind and encouraging, whose blog posts are long yet a joy to read. We don’t usually read blogs because we are lazy, and, as you have probably figured out, we are scared of people and making friends. Due to these two main reasons, we avoid following other blogs. Derek’s blog, however, we read very regularly.

He also gave us a set of questions to challenge our Q&A skill. We did struggle through this (people usually don’t ask us anything) but here you go.

Warning: Boring stuff ahead.

The Peckish Kiwi nominated me a Liebster Award. In case you are wondering what it is, it is a blog award for new bloggers with fewer than 300 followers (but some say 2000… I don’t know). The nominated blogger is supposed to nominate other bloggers to spread the love (liebster = dearest/most beloved in German; ah how I adore that language). But I don’t know 11 bloggers, I will refrain from nominating for now. Once I do, I will sure share this, because the badge looks awesome xD
