“The ‘Mystery Blogger Award‘ is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging and they do it with so much love and passion” – Okoto Enigma: creator of this award.
I have to thank Kirti for nominating me – check out her blog the inkstars city. It has taken me a while to respond because the nomination got lost on its way to me (tip – don’t add your nominations to multiple posts by one blogger, or they may get caught in the spam filter ;-)) Anyway, it was a nice surprise to start the week, thanks Kirti!

Answers to Kirti’s questions
- Dream job: when I was a teenager I planned to live in a chocolate box cottage and translate, but now I can’t imagine more fulfilling roles than being a teacher and a parent.
- Why blog: I want learning to be accessible and enjoyable for everyone – if parents, teachers or students (who would never meet me otherwise) can benefit from some of the information and ideas I write about, then I will love that.
- I love reading, but I can’t choose a favourite novel! My favourite depends on my mood, the situation, even the memories of the time I was reading the book… I would recommend The Master and Margarita, but that’s probably because it reminds me of when I was studying Russian and travelling in Eastern Europe.
- On my birthday, I love to enjoy a meal with family and friends.
- I’m so boring I don’t have a celebrity crush. The most expensive thing damaged has to be my car in an accident. Luckily it was not serious and no-one was hurt.
