Liebster Award

My friend Robena Grant nominated me for the Liebster Award. Apparently in German that means loved one, or favourite. Robena's Blog
So this award is all about blogging and answering questions and also a game of "tag you're it". I love nominating people for awards and that's why I agreed to play and pick four of my favourite colleagues. So read the rules and the facts and then check out some blog links of other players. 

1. You must tell 11 things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions your nominator gives you.
3. Create 11 questions for the bloggers you nominate.
4. Choose new blogs with fewer than 200 followers and link them to your post.
5. If you’re nominated, please leave a comment on this post with the URL of your Liebster Award post.
Here goes:

Do you have siblings?
I have three brothers (sorry ladies they're taken).

Have you ever lived in a country other than the US? 
I grew up in Scotland and I live in Canada. I've visited the US many times and love being neighbours with you!!

What is your favourite movie of all time?
All time.... yikes. I love musicals and especially movies that have music in them. I'll say My Fair Lady because it has special meaning to my daughter - she performed in the show recently.

Do you read literary fiction?
I read all types of fiction so I'd say yes. Though I find the term 'literary' covers a lot of vague ground.

Do you like broccoli? 
Love broccoli - I'm a stir fry lover so it's great in a chicken or steak stir fry, which segues nicely....

Steak or chicken? 
I eat more chicken but I like steak pie and steak in a stir fry as opposed to a big slab of meat.

Do you wear mismatched undies? 
Probably, but who's looking??

When you were young did you have more guy friends, or girl friends? 
Having three brothers means I met lots of their friends and got along well with them but I had more girl friends. In fact I met some girl friends because they had crushes on my brothers at one time or another. (Go figure!)

Modern or Antique?
Antique for my stories 'cos I love writing ancient Rome or medieval. As far as creature comforts I'm a modern girl, who can't do without hot water or makeup. lol

I'm nominating ... Vonnie Davis, Niecey Roy, Sandra Dailey and Kathryn Knight.
