Last week (or the week before? Time is flying!), Jo nominated me for a Liebster Award! I've seen a couple of posts about this and it's such a fun way to get to know other blogs that you might not have heard about; it's not so much an award as a way of supporting other bloggers and also a chance to be a bit nosy, I suppose! The other posts I've seen are accompanied with lovely photos, so at first I thought it was some kind of photography award; you'll have to put up with instagrams though!

1. What is your favourite thing to do on a weekend?
Breakfast! During the week, I eat porridge at my desk when I get into work, so making a proper breakfast is a real luxury for me and it’s usually a batch of creamy scrambled eggs, avocado toast and a pot of tea. Since I bought a new computer at the beginning of the year, it also means watching BBC iPlayer in bed, which feels so indulgent. 

2. What would your last meal be?
I’m constantly either eating, or thinking about eating, so this is really hard for me! I could eat Thai food for days on end, so it would probably have to be my favourite takeaway: fish cakes, Pad Thai, yum woon sen and beef massaman curry. {cue stomach gurgling}

3. If you could try one job out for the day, what would you do?
Thai beach bar owner, please. 

4. If you could learn one skill and be super amazing at it, what would it be?
I’d love to have a creative skill and I always wish I could be an illustrator or graphic designer. It would be so fun to create book jackets or draw pictures for children’s books.

5. What would your super power be?

Control the weather. When the sun’s out, everything’s a little bit better, but being able to create a massive thunderstorm when I’m curled up on the sofa with a hot chocolate would be pretty cool too. 

6. If you could live in any city where would you live?
I’ve been lucky to live in Tokyo and New York, but so far London is my favourite! I’ve always said I’m staying put from here on out, but the temptation to up sticks, rent out my flat and live in Australia for a year is seriously fueled by Tania’s travels at the minute.

7. What is your happiest moment?
My happiest moment is stepping into a steaming hot bubble bath. Nothing could be better for the soul. 

8. What is your guilty food? - the one where you're too embarrassed to admit to anyone that that is really what you ate last night
To be honest, I don’t feel guilty about anything I eat because it’s ALL SO DERICIOUS. I think people normally have their embarrassing meals when there partner is out for the night and can’t be bothered to cook, but if I’m in on my own I always treat myself. I suppose my guilty food is an ‘everything meal’, when all I can decide on is that I want to eat all of the food. I used to work in an American diner-style greasy spoon and after seeing all the orders go out, I’d want it all and request the weirdest meals: bacon and egg burger with a jacket potato and coleslaw on the side, 1 chicken nugget, 1 scampi and sometimes a sausage. This, btw, was in the days when I had a 16 year old’s metabolism and I was on my feet all day so I never got fat. Oh, the injustice.

I've nominated a couple of blogs - both new-to-me and pals - and can't wait to read their answers! Over to you, girls xx

What made you start your blog and what’s your favourite blog moment so far?
What’s your first childhood memory?
If money were no object, describe your perfect holiday.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What would you say to yourself 10 years ago? What would you say to yourself 10 years from now?
What would your winning Come Dine With Me menu be?
Finish the sentence:
My friends would describe me as…
When I’m sad I like to…
My simplest pleasure in life is…
Birthdays are…
