  1. Ah thank you for the tag lovely lady. I've already done my Liebster Award but touched to be nominated again. It's lovely to find out more about you. I love pancakes too! And it's interesting that you prefer winter, brrrr, too cold for me! X

    1. No worries Ali - thanks for commenting. Pancakes rule xx

  2. Thank you for the tag! I didn't realise I'd been tagged here too! I am just about to publish one Liebster post but will do this one too! My answers for Harps were sooo long that I think I better space them out a little so maybe next week! Thank you again. I love that you have twin siblings! Nicki xxx
