Q & A With My Own Liebster Questions

I had great fun last week thinking up some unusual questions for my Liebster Award nominees but I made sure to run them past Andrew first to see what he thought.
His conclusion was that they were good but also why don't I answer my own questions as well!
So here's both mine and Andrew's answers to my own Liebster questions...

1. What's the story behind your blog's name?
Me: I like ducks and I like dresses. Andrew also reckons I'm nosy (i.e. sticking my beak into things)
Andrew: Not applicable

2. If you could choose any career in the world, what would you do?
Me: A librarian/archivist working for the National Fairground Archive
Andrew: An architect
3. What special super power would you like?
Me: Flying
Andrew: I'm a bloke so naturally it'd be x-ray vision.
4. Are you a tea or coffee person? Or neither?
Me: Tea
Andrew: Coffee
5. Printed paper books or ebooks?
Me: Can I say both? Ebooks are great for things like holidays but you still can't beat the smell of a new paperback.
Andrew: Paper books because some of the specialist titles I like you can't get as an ebook.
6. What would be your specialist subject on BBC's Mastermind?
Me: Probably the Somerset Carnival season
(although I know there's people out there who know lots more than me about it)
Andrew: Scammell Lorries
7. Is there anywhere in the World you've never visited and would really like to?
Me: There's a few - New Zealand, Montreal, St Petersburg, Norway, Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands, the Scilly Isles and the Shetlands.
Andrew: Berlin and Paris
8. Which Harry Potter house do you belong to? (apologies if you have no idea what I'm on about)
Me: Probably Ravenclaw (I was/am a swot)
Andrew: What?
9. Which crafty skill do you wish you were good at?
Me: Icing cakes. My default topping on cakes is buttercream beacuse I haven't got the patience to decorate my cakes properly.
Andrew: Proper Fairground Signwriting
10. What's your favourite season of the year and why?
Me: Autumn - the colours of the trees, Halloween, firework displays, the crunch of the leaves underfoot, the countdown to Christmas (and my birthday just before!) and Carnival season.
Andrew: Summer - light nights, light mornings, warmth, steam rallies.
11. If you could bring back one children's TV programme from your childhood, what would it be?
Me: Fingermouse, it's the earliest children's TV programme I remember watching and I loved it!
Andrew: Ivor the Engine


  1. I loved Fingermouse and Fingerbobs. I showed Lucas a few clips on YouTube and he was utterly unimpressed. I, on the other hand, was slightly creeped out by the presenter!

    I'm definitely a Ravenclaw, too. I was such a swot at school and I still love sticking my head in a book now!

    You can do some lovely things with buttercream iced cakes--I avoid it like the plague in the summer, though--and I love the rustic swirls and peaks. You can always get slightly fancier and pipe swirls onto the cake to completely cover it. I don't think that you need to get wacky with fondant like I do, to make a beautiful cake!!

    1. I've actually got a Tala icing set which I was given for Christmas the other year (I'm just too lazy to use it). Think I should get it out and practise though as I'm sure there's probably loads of cool designs I might be able to manage if I could be bothered! :-) x
