The lovely Emily from ‘ow Am Yau? nominated me for the Liebster award about a week ago and I apologise profusely to Emily for taking so much time to get this post up.
The only excuses I have is that I’ve been reading and googling hot men!
Then yesterday Emma from Chicklit vs Fantasy also nominated for the Liebster award, so I stopped googling Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy and co and decided to get my post done.
What I’m going to do is combine the two and answer all questions in one post.
A huge thanks to both lovely ladies for thinking of me and my blog when they received their nominations, I’m very honoured to receive this, thank you!

Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them.
Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.
Nominate up to 10 other bloggers for this award.
Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them

Who was your favourite teacher at school and why?

What animal do you think most reflects your personality the best? (or, the way I wanted to phrase this question: a) what would your patronus be, and b) what form would your daemon take?)
My Patronus would be a dog (stop your laughing) I’m loyal and friendly but if you do something against someone I care about, you will get my back up.
And my daemon would be a hare, The HARE DAEMON represents your passive, kindhearted, and honorable nature. Though you are occasionally shy with new people, friends admire your unshakable tranquility, even in the face of chaos. (Ok so I took a google test for b)
