Liebster Award


Over the last month or so, I’ve had the pleasure of being followed by a few new blogger and  therefore in return checking out their blogs. One Blogger – Muslima in the World: Reflections on life… has nominated me for a Liebster Award. Thank you very much Muslima!

This award is about promoting other bloggers, particularly those with a low number of followers. So, firstly I’d like to thank Muslima for the nomination and wish you the best in your blogging endeavours!
Now, the questions you asked me and the answers!

  1. Why do you love blogging?

It’s a great way if expressing my thoughts and ideas with others, particularly other like minded people. I also like ‘meeting’ other inspiring people from around the world who are making positive contributions and I like the feeling of connection with other bloggers.

  1. What is your primary job?

I am a sustainability professional and a very busy mother!

  1. Have you gotten the benefits from blogging? If yes, please mention 2 of them!

I use it as a way to double check my own actions to ensure that I am in fact ‘green’ (no greenwash here folks!)

I have learnt a lot in the process and from other bloggers.

  1. What is your country and what do you like about it?

I live in Australia and I love it because it’s a wonderful place to live and raise my children. While I sometimes I bemoan the fact that it is so far away from the rest of the world and that this sometimes leads to an ‘island’ (isolated) mentality, I do also enjoy this fact, as it can feel a little bit detached from some of the world’s problems. It is also a beautiful place to live.

  1. Have you ever heard of Tunisia?

I most certainly have heard of Tunisia and dream of going there one day. In fact I have a great friend who is from Tunisia and she’s a real inspiring eco-warrior too!

  1. What is your favorite past time activity?

I love to garden and go bushwalking (hiking). I do also love to spend time with my children playing under a sprinkler, kicking a ball around or simply pottering around the house.

  1. How do you get the ideas for your blog?

I  get ideas from things that are topical at the time, things going on in my life or they just come to me to be honest. Sometimes I sit, have a think and jot down a lot of ideas. I then work through these  and refer back to the master list from time to time.

  1. Do you like sport? Which sport do you like?

To be frank, I’m not a super sporty person. I like to work out like in a gym, but I never get there. I do however particularly like jogging and yoga. I also find running after 3 kids to be quite a workout!

  1. What place (city in this world) you wish to visit in the future (Insha’Allah)? Why?

Hmmm….so many places …..well Tunisia is one, as is Morocco. I am planning a trip to Italy (Insha’Allah) later this year.  I love Iran, so would always love to go, see my family and some places within it that I’ve never been. I would also love to re-visit some of the other places I’ve already been like Cuba, Costa Rica, Argentina and Chile – well the whole of South America actually.

  1. What language do you speak?

I speak English, Farsi and some Spanish.

  1. What topics are you most interested in?

Sustainability, travel, gardening and cooking.
