Liebster Blog Award - Take 2!

I have previously done this blog award in January (post here) but I have recently been tagged by a couple of people. When checking out the lovely bloggers that tagged me I found that the Liebster Blog Award has changed since I did it so decided to do it again. 

I have been tagged by:

The Rules:
  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
