  1. Hi, new follower. Coffee Lady sent me. Regarding number 11...I used to be a huge band geek. (I know that question wasn't directed at me, but what the hey.)

    1. Hi susie, thanks for that...feel free to answer anymore of the questions for coffee lady ;)

  2. LOL Rowena. I don't know if I should thank you or curse you. Just kidding, it sounds like fun. I hope my 11 honorees feel the same way. Plus, I'm using it for my "M" day, so thank you.

    1. Ha ha, I know! I'm very sorry giving you extra work to do too! Look forward to seeing the letter M from you :)

  3. Thanks Rowena. Looks like fun. :)

  4. Congratulations! Very interesting. New follower here. I'm stopping by from the "A to Z" challenge and I look forward to visiting again.


    1. Thank you...I love new followers! I will come and check your blog out now.

  5. When April ends, please join us at GBE2: Blog On and/or The Writer's Post. These two groups post weekly prompts as well as provide a blogging network. You will need to connect through Facebook and send a request to join. We'd love to have you.

    1. Thanks Joyce, I'll save this info and try and join you (if you will have me!)

  6. Thank you so much for the nomination! I'm a little behind because I'm not feeling so great, so it may take me a little time to do this, but I'm going to do it. Thanks again!

    1. You deserve it! your blog is one my favourites. Apologies if I have given you more work to do...

  7. I took your cue, and nominated you back, hehehe. Actually, it's because yours is one of my favorites as well. :)

  8. Do you want to own a dog? I have 8 to chose from. ;)

    Thank you for the nomination. I'm honestly not sure how to fit it into A to Z, so it may be a while.

    1. A dog would be nice and would help keep me fit taking it for walks, however we have a cat and he would get very jealous and not allow it! He wears the trousers in our house. Take your time with the nomination stuff, I don't think there is any rush :)

  9. Just finished with Liebster award. And Just want you to know, "Yours is one of my favorite blog".
