Liebster award


In September this year whilst on maternity leave with The Retro Baby, I signed up to do a Blogging course through Clever Cookie – School of Blog ( )

In order to do the course, I needed a blog- which is kind of how this blog was born. Its all part of some bigger picture.

Anyway! In that very short time doing the course, I have made some wonderful blogging friends. So many talented and kind people out there.

I was really taken by surprise when 2 of my blogging buddies let me know they had nominated me for a Liebster award!

Thank you to the fabulous Jo at and the beautiful Astrid at – Both of you ladies are an inspiration and share qualities that I love!
