Liebster Award Nomination 12 2019
Huge thanks to Tanya of Salted Caramel for her nomination of A Guy Called Bloke and Doodlepip’s Adventuresfor the Liebster Award. Tanya actually nominated me last month, but this is the first real opportunity l have had to respond.
If as of yet you are not yet familiar with Tanya’s blog – my advice is to skiddadle over there and ‘familiarise’ yourself with her writings. At her own concession, Tanya runs a diverse blog covering many topics in a rather lovely mixture of ‘salty and sweet’.
Going to bend it like Uri Gellar slightly here and call these not rules, but Directions, as the Liebster nominations keep changing every time l do them

The origins of this award are as follows:
“This award is meant to encourage new bloggers. From The Global Aussie: “The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.” The award initially focused on bloggers with less than 2000 followers, but as its popularity increased this number has gone down to 200.”
I will do my best to adhere as much as l can to the ‘rulings’ of the award, and if in the process of any l nominate who are ‘not’ award accepting blogs, that’s fine, just know that l have chosen your site for the style it presents to the readership.
If any of my nominees choose to not respond – and by no means are any of you under an obligation to do so – that too is fine. As is my way l will offer my own ‘Get Out Of Nominations Free Card’ [above]
However if you ONLY wish to answer my 8 questions, then the use of the card below allows you to do that.
Answer 11 Questions

WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR NAME ?
My parents gave it to me at birth.
IF YOU COULD CHANGE YOUR NAME, WHAT WOULD IT BE ?
I have no intention of changing my name. Although when l was married, l had a double barrel as l incorporated my wife’s surname to my own, but once we divorced l went back to Matier. Because Splodgebodge – Matier – just didn’t sit right with me.

Yep, certainly do.

You mean, like when l fall do l like the scents and aromas and tastes of the concrete as l hit it? None if that is the case.

No idea, haven’t been on holiday for so long now, l have forgotten. But l need to return to Pompeii soon.

Live it, rather than purely survive and exist within it.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF ?
My optimism and my ability to laugh at myself when the chips are down.
