I got voted the Liebster award!



It has been such a positive day in my life outside of blogging with all the workshops and groups I have coming up. Then  I come home to access  my inside blogging world. and have a have been voted a Liebster award by two fellow bloggers on different days.  YAY! 


What did you want to be when you grew up (at 5 years old)?

Hahaha. Oh god. I  think I came out with something mind blowing. I wanted to become a advocate or a lawyer. I was sick of all the people around me  fighting and arguing  and not hugging it all out  instead. Give peas a chance said some one. I am such a Geek!

If you could give a million dollars to charity, which charity/charities would you choose?

Eating disorder research charities , Alzeihmers research charities and alternative treatment for mental health.

What’s your favorite seasonal food?  You know, pumpkin, peppermint, etc

 I currently live in England so I have to say pumpkin for obvious reasons. I love mussels -have to be warmed up.  I also love wild mushrooms in an omelette or  if you are being super healthy like moi. ( I am getting married in June) use two massive breakfast mushrooms as the bun for a quorn burger. So yummy.   I love apples too. I love all fruit actually.  Never loved fruit more, now that I’m getting married in June. You are going to hear that about the wedding a  lot. That reminds me of an update on the cake situation . I like cake! Cake is good in Autumn . 🙂

Who was your celebrity crush when you were in high school?

I didn’t really have anyone. I grew up in Africa and we lived outside a lot. Similar to monkeys  haha. I fell in love with Skins music from ‘Skunk Anansie’ and I fell in love with ‘Nine inch nails’. I had crushes on people I knew. In fact the only celebrity crush I have ever had was when I was about 8/9 years old. NKOTB. If you don’t know them . All the better for you. Hahaha.

What are five things you KICK ASS at?

I have been complimented on my writing. I am rather good at challenges people set for me and those I set for myself. I’m good at speaking the truth . Like an arrow to your heart sometimes. I’m good at feeling the fear and doing it anyway. I am shit hot Mom 😀 That was a pretty tough question for me. 

What’s the last GREAT book you read?images (6)

Easy peasy. ‘Broken dolls’ by  Jefferson Winter   and I am currently dipping into ‘the book thief’ by  Marcus zusak at the moment along with a bunch of non fiction books related to organising workshops. Swotting up on mental health . that kind of thing.  There is also my life but that is what my blog is for. hahaha

What’s something that really gets you fired up?

I hate girly gossip. I’m the kind of person who will say whatever I say to another person behind your back straight in front of your face. I had dishonesty. I hate injustice and I hate ignorance.

Are you a collector?  What do you collect?

I collect a charm from each person I murder…. mwaahaha . erm. no I am not a collector. Hang on a sec, I collect pictures. I love pictures of my family and friends. I’ m not one of these totally I’m so cool and  I can use one  pic to sum up how awesome their life is.  I need to share. I was brought up to share as many experiences as possible. 

Your middle name — embarrassing or AWESOME?

Honestly? a bit boring. Sorry Mom but I have my Mom’s name Sonia. I think it is okay but why couldn’t I have been middle named Zion or sheera or something  with an edge to it.

What’s your most embarrassing email/AIM username?  Do kids still use AIM?  Or even know what it is?  Probably not. I haven’t used it in about 8 years.

Never used it but I can use this question to embarrass my lovely husband to be. Okay . his name he uses for his email is ‘GazHimself’  – he doesn’t even get how arrogant this comes across as.  haahha.

What song have you had on repeat lately?

Oh this is an easy one – I’m thinking of this song for our first and probably only dance ever. it was my Granddads favourite song
