Liebster Award.

Thank you to Yogi Mom Life for nominating me for the Liebster Award.  It’s for bloggers to promote fellow bloggers with less than 3000 followers.  Liebster is German for kindness so it’s all about paying it forward.  If you read my #BlogFriends you’ll know this is my sort of thing.  So I have to answer 11 questions asked by Yogi Mom Life and then I nominate 11 bloggers to answer my 11 questions and if you accept the award then write a blog answering the questions and nominating your 11 and keep it going!
If you’ve already done it then sorry for tagging you again but feel free to retweet your blog to me!
What do you value most in your life? 
People.  Life is all about the people you spend it with.  I value my family, close friends and my work family.  Being on your own is good as a break every now and then but life is nothing without people and our interactions.  I even value the silly random customers I get at work that make me laugh and I value the new like minded people I’ve found since I’ve joined blogging networks.
What dance best describes your personality? 
Hmmm that’s a hard question for me.  I never stop dancing. I’m going to pick ‘Tra La La’, the Gene Kelly tap routine from An American in Paris because it’s about falling in love and I was obsessed with Gene Kelly around 2013 new year when me and my partner had the best new year ever! Probably a cheesy 80s party dance routine too that sums up me at work.
What do you feel is your purpose in life?
To be honest, I believe in going with the flow and taking each day as it comes, I don’t believe in fate and meanings of life.  We are responsible for creating our own meaning and purpose.
How did you decide the name of your blog and where did it come from?
I’m a bar manager and I treat my staff like they’re my babies so one of them starting calling me Momma Boss. When I became an actual Momma I thought it had a nice double meaning for my blog.  I’m literally a Momma Boss.
What do you love most about blogging?
 Having a voice.  I used to be really quiet when I was growing up because I was bullied about my voice and teeth so I always used to write to express myself.  I don’t get bullied anymore but it’s still my favourite way to express myself.
What would you do today if you knew you would not fail?
Buy my own bar.  And publish a book about it.
What is the first thing you do in the morning? 
Either change Ollie’s nappy or if his daddy has done it then I have an Ollie cuddle.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
On the coast.  I’d be happy staying in Britain, somewhere really quiet and picturesque or if I went abroad I love Los Angeles. I’d be happy to look out at Santa Monica pier everyday, from my awesome bar that I own!
What is your favourite outdoor activity?
I love sunbathing and swimming.  I love being abroad and just doing nothing all day apart from the occasional swim.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I would love to be an established writer.  I don’t want to be a ‘full time blogger’ I want to write a book or write for a company.  I want to write about my career and my crazy baby theories that some people laugh at.  I’d love to write for my pub company that I work for! I’ll probably still be running bars in five years though… With 3 kids!
What makes you smile?
Apart from the obvious… My little Ollie! The one thing guaranteed to make me smile no matter what is some good old music, preferably being played on vinyl.  I love the crackly sound. My favourite era is the 80’s but anything from the vinyl era is good for me.  1950’s to early 1990’s.
