Blogger Award

Thank you so much, Sarah Potter, for nominating me for the happy, smiley Sunshine Blogger Award. It is the first one of these that I have ever done. Sarah is a writer from the UK who loves eating broad beans and sipping on chardonnay with her pet cocroach — her blog can be found at

The Sunshine Blogger Award is customarily bestowed upon bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others — a thing to be valued most highly in a world dominated by negative and destructive reportage.

The rules of the award are as follows:

  1. Post the sunshine award logo.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you.
  3. Answer the eight set questions (as listed below).
  4. Hand out awards to other sunny bloggers.
  5. Link to sites of nominees and leave comments to notify them of their awards.

The questions and my answers:

  1. What’s your favourite Christmas movie?  The Shining.
  2. What’s your favourite flower? It is a even match between those giant flowers that smell of dead meat and hyacinth. 
  3. What’s your favourite non-alcoholic beverage? Lychee Juice.
  4. What’s your favourite passion? Writing and family.
  5. What’s your favourite time of yearAutumn (and it is here).
  6. What’s your favourite time of day Early in the morning before the world wakes up with a cup of coffee and a place to write.
  7. What’s your favourite physical activityWalking up mountains carrying tripods and cameras.
  8. What’s your favourite vacation? Somewhere with leaves, quiet, a stream and a place to write.

And now for my sunshine bloggers :-)

  1. Congratulations, you Sunny McSunshine! And thank you – just noticed this post now! Not quite sure what happened, so apols for the delayed response!


  2. I loved your answers, and would expect nothing less eccentric from you 😉 As for the stinking tree, such a liking must be related to times of severe nasal blockage.
    PS I remember asking for a Venus fly-trap plant for my birthday when I was 8, but it wasn’t forthcoming.

    • Thank you. And I remember asking for a fly-trap when I was a child too – mine wasn’t forthcoming either. Amélie has already put in a request for one. I like this idea of so many people’s lives being ruined by not getting a venus fly trap. It is my kind of surreal psychological tale. The reason I wouldn’t get one for Amélie is that they have very short life spans – if you don’t water them they die – and if you water them they rot. There is no middle ground. There is also the possibility that the existence of fly traps is a hoax created by the writer’s of nature books and tv programs.
