I am nominated for 4 awards!
Well yes, except I have been busy with packing and downsizing I am running way late on responding to them. I was thinking if it is okay with you, I could combine 2 awards in this post and later today, I will have another post with the other 2 awards. If you get through this whole post, you get a gold star – lots of information here.
These 2 awards I have previously been nominated for. So here we go –

2.Answer the 11 questions from your nominator.
3.Nominate 11 bloggers.
4.Give them 11 questions to answer.
Questions for me:
1.What do you prefer: shopping or reading a book?
Tough question, because I really dislike shopping and reading a book would be difficult for me. When I shop, I go for a particular product. When I read, my attention span is short, therefore I prefer reading blog posts instead of books.

I have once that I can remember. I actually have a post about this in the coming weeks that will be part of my ‘Pictures & Stories’ category.
3.You´ve won 1 million US-Dollars but can´t keep it for yourself – what would you do with it instead?
Give it to my sons.
4.If time-travels were possible where – oops! when would you travel: future or the past?
I would say the past. I prefer to leave the future a mystery and not know what will take place.
5.What brings sunshine into your life? (apart from the sun, of course😉 )
Ice Cream, Cake, Cookies, Cup Cakes, did I mention Ice Cream?
6.What kind of super-power would you like to have? (like telepathy, flying etc.)
Teleportation – the ability to travel fast from one place to another.
7.Have you ever encountered a “troll” in the blogosphere? And how did you handle it?
8.Do you watch documentaries?
Occasionally when I happen to come across one.
9.What aspect of blogging do you like the most?
The interaction with wonderful friends I have met here.
10.If you could start your own business – what would it be?
Making cupcakes that bring happiness to people’s lives. Did I mention, I would serve the cupcakes with a side of ice cream!
11.Pop Corn – with salt or sugar?
Salt and please lots of butter!
1.If you were ruler of the world what laws would you make?
2.If you were a super hero what would your hero name be?
3.What would you do if you won the lottery?
4.What talents do you have?
