Another Leibster Award!

Another Leibster Award!

I’m delighted to have been nominated for another Leibster Award – this is the second for Welsh Mum Writing  since I launched my blog a few months ago so I’m absolutely delighted that people are getting to know my name. I could just go “poo, poo, I’ve already participated” but in the interests of paying it forward to some other bloggers who might need a boost, I’m going to do this one again. This time, there’ll be new questions and new invitees.

The Leibster is an opportunity to discover new bloggers by nominating them to answer some questions about themselves. They post the answers on their blog and in turn nominate another 5 or more.  My nomination was from the Woman in Progress blog so you can check out their blog for more information about them.

So here’s their questions to me :

What is your favourite song?

I have loads so it’s difficult to choose, but I suppose there’s ones I always come back to. I love Creedance Clearwater Revival’s Bad Moon Rising and Depeche Mode’s Sound of Silence. I might have to throw in You Belong to Me by Patsy Cline into the mix as that’s my son’s favourite song to sing him to sleep.

What is your most proud moment?

Keeping my cool through my C-Section. The nurses told me I was a rock star in theatre and kept the trainee midwife calm as she was a bit nervous. Also they had issues getting the spinal block in but I asked them to keep trying as I didn’t want a general anesthetic.

Who or what is your biggest inspiration and why?

There really isn’t a person. I don’t tend to put people on pedestals and sometimes the smallest things can be the biggest accomplishments to the person involved. My son is probably my biggest motivator though. I want to ensure that he has a happy, healthy life and that he knows from me that he can be whoever and achiever whatever he wants.

If you could pick one superpower, what would it be and why?

Go-go-gadget legs. I’m barely past 5 feet tall and it’s a nightmare getting jeans that fit. An extra two inches could make all the difference.

What one piece of advice would you give the younger you?

Don’t worry so much about others. Do what’s right for you. Everyone else will be fine.

That was fun! Right, so now I’m going to nominate a few bloggers to participate. Hopefully they will!

My nominees:
