Liebster Award Nomination 3
My genuine and kind thanks to Washable Words for this nomination [11/02/18] for the Liebster Award. I believe all award nominations are a compliment to a bloggers’ work, their craft and their skill, and for that l am always appreciative for those who take the time to award them. Who doesn’t wish to be recognised, as it gifts the receiver an enormous sense of ‘worth’ a sense of balance, that we are not just ricocheting around this world like a loose marble inside a glass ball – that our craft, words, poems, stories and journeys, are not only simply relatable, but are touching another in such a way that it inspires them.
Washable Words, is at his own concession a ‘newbie in the WordPress’ block, new to this wonderfully accepting community, and so am l, and so are many others and the Liebster Award celebrates this very thing, alongside showing and displaying a respect for another’s skill, dexterity, ability and dedicated artistry.
Check out Washable Words’ blog – heavily into mindfulness, positivity, mental health awareness and l like the honest style of writing, and to boot WW is a devout fan of Harry Potter – already a huge KUDOS in my books!!

Answer The Questions:
Describe yourself in five words.
Realistic, pragmatic, honest, accidental, quirky
What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?
I had to feed a 12′ reticulated python which sadly l was babysitting for, who was notoriously grumpy, who on that particular day decided to attack me and in so doing, nearly killed me when it coiled up over my left arm and neck. If not for a friend, l would not be retelling the tale today. There are many ‘moments’ in my life, but this precise one terrified me, as whilst l don’t hate snakes, l learned to have a very healthy respect for their sheer power.
What is your favourite quote?
“Sarah left the party and so we all jumped for Joy!” Edward Phuton 1994.
Where is your happy place?
I am not sure l can honestly answer this, as l don’t specifically have any happy place.
What’s on your bucket list?
Get through this life in one piece.
What is your favourite time of the year?
If you had all the money in the world, what would you do?
Funny question – the Aspie me would answer, no one can have all the money in the world, but the Neuro me would say – if money was of no consequence then l would probably try and clean up our act a bit – we are brutally raping, pillaging and murdering our world every day, we have to stop this shit.
Who in your family are you most like?
No one specifically, l have traits genetically of both parents, but am not close to my family and refuse to allow them to define me, l define me.
What is the most extreme thing you’ve ever done?
You mean next to feeding a 12′ retic who was having a bad day? Probably getting into an enclosure with an amorous cheetah.
What is your biggest achievement?
I have quite a few in truth and l cannot put my finger with deliberation on one, but push comes to shove probably taking part in the Primate code of Practice 2008 and assisting in ensuring the regulations for private exotic ownership of this beautiful species would always be monitored correctly in the UK.
What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
Again, l have done many things, are we to define inappropriateness with embarrassments also? If so, when l was around 17 there was a girl l seriously fancied but she looked a lot like her younger Sister, and l got the two mixed up and accidentally asked the wrong one out and when at her parents house, realised my error and unwittingly said ‘Oh no, you are not the one l wanted to ask out! it was her!!’ Pointing at the elder sister. embarrassed l wasn’t, my parents were when the girls Father came stomping over to my house and demanded to know what gives with their Sons blatant inappropriateness? In truth, l don’t often get embarrassed.
