The Sunshine Award

The Sunshine Award is a lovely sunny flower that bloggers give to other “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.
I was tagged for this lovely award by Ruchi Vasudeva, a dear friend and a fabulous author. Thank you Ruchi for thinking of me.
Now, for those tagged onward in this post, the rules of the ‘The Sunshine Award’ are as follows. They are really simple:
(1)     Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
(2)     Do the Q&A below.
(3)     Pass on the award to 10 – 12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.
Rule 1. Thank you Ruchi, I have taken my time getting to this but I have been very busy with my wip and haven't been on Facebook for ages!
Rule 2. Q&A

Favourite Colour: 
Blue, any shade of blue really, although the colour of the sky on a bright summer's day has to be the best.

Favourite Animal: 
I love them all, horses, dogs, goats, fish, rabbits, birds, elephants...if I had to pick just one it would probably be erm ...dogs.

Favourite Number:
7. I have no idea why, it is just the first number that comes to mind when I am asked that question.

Favourite Non-alcoholic Drink:
Coffee - or rocket fuel as my OH calls it :)
Facebook or Twitter:
I use both but face book is more for chatting and making friends, twitter is good for getting the word out.

Your Passion: 
Writing, my husband, and my family. Oh, and the seaside. I love to stand on a windy clifftop and feel at one with nature. That sounds really cliched doesn't it? but it's true. The sea is a recurring setting in my novels, Where the West Wind Blows is set on the Welsh coast, not far from where I live.

Giving or Getting Presents:
Giving! I always feel a bit awkward and embarrassed opening them, so giving is more successful for me and the buzz just before they tear off the wrapping is brilliant.

Favourite Day: Friday. My day off, I spend it with my husband, not doing much just being 'us.'
Favourite Flower: 
I love all flowers, my favourite is usually the one I am looking at. I suppose daffodils are the most thrilling of all because they appear like sunshine during our darkest days.the first one of the year always gives me a little tingle.

So this is about me and now longing to hear from the people I am passing this award to, who are:
Anna Valentine
F. B. Clements


  1. Hi,

    Thank you so much for naming me along with all the lovely ladies listed for the "Sunshine Award". It's much appreciated. Luckily we're getting a fair dose of the sun here in West Wales for a change. ;) I think my answers are going to be similar to yours, and loved the pics!


  2. You're a writer? Crool shoes. Me, too (kinda, sorta). I know for a fact, however, you gotta whole lotta intelligence behind those two ears, girl; thus, I wanna give you my finite existence: to intrinsically value the Great Beyond which I’ve learned to appreciate, to visualize the fundamental reality of infinity is why I‘m here for a teeny-weeny amount of time. Looky here...

    Precisely why I had our ‘philanthropic + epiphany’ (=so much to give + vision): wanna see a perfectly cognizant, fully-spectacular, Son-ripened-Heaven?? … yet, I’m not sure if we're on the same page if you saw what I saw. Greetings, earthling. Because I was an actual NDE on the outskirts of the Great Beyond at 15 yet wasn’t allowed in, lemme share with you what I actually know Seventh-Heaven’s Big-Bang’s gonna be like: meet this advanced, bombastic, ex-mortal Upstairs for the most juvenile-lip-service, extra-groovy, secret-sauce-paradox, pleasure-beyond-measure, Ultra-Yummy-Reality-Addiction in the Great Beyond for a BIG-ol, kick-some-ass, party-hardy, robust-N-risqué-passion you DO NOT wanna miss the sink-your-teeth-in-the-smmmokin’-hot-deal enveloping, engulfing our catch-22-excitotoxins. Cya soon, girl…
