Well, I am just tickled pink and over the moon (which is apparently going to be eclipsed tonight) that I have been nominated for the sunshine blogger award by Laura of Lauravent69, see the post here:

  3. What are your top 5 favourite songs of all time?
  4. What is your favourite thing to do in your down time?

  6. Name your muse for much of your writing.
  7. Do you prefer Japanese or Chinese cuisine?

  9. How many siblings do you have?
  10. Would you say that you are an adventurer or a thrill seeker?
  11. What is your favourite candy?

My Answers:

  1. Mid Morning – I still feel refreshed and full of energy. 9:30 – 11am is usually when I feel at my best, then I normally get a second wind about 3 or 4pm that lasts for a couple of hours. Then it’s downhill until bedtime.
  2. I love Fantasy (wizards and stuff like that) my favourites in that genre would be The Dark Crystal, Time Bandits and The Princess Bride. (I grew up in the 1980’s, in case you hadn’t worked it out from that list).
  3. My top 5 would be constantly changing, but 5 that would always be favourites are Alison Moyet – That Ole Devil called Love, The Seekers – Island of Dreams, Edison Lighthouse – Love grows where my Rosemary goes, The Mamas and the Papas – Monday Monday and Carpenters – Top of the World.
  4. Blogging, Gardening and watching my Chickens in the garden.
  5. I’d love to be a famous published Author, that would be pretty good.
  6. I don’t have a muse. The inspiration just comes and I am grateful for it.
  7. I don’t really know enough about Japanese or Chinese food, but I don’t like Sushi and I really like Dim sum dumplings and Prawn Crackers, so in my naievety I would have to say Chinese.
  8. I’d like to have a nice long friendly chat to Queen Elizabeth the First. She is such an Iconic figure from English history and rather a hero (or Heroine) of mine, so I’d love to find out more about what made her tick. I have my suspicions.
  9. I feel like I have lots of siblings, I have lots of cousins and friends who are as close as brothers and sisters to me.
  10. I am definitely an adventurer but NOT a thrill seeker. I hate fairground rides and the idea of skydiving or bungee jumping just leaves me feeling flat and rather nauseated, but the idea of visiting a part of the world I’ve not been to, that is my kind of thrill.
  11. I don’t really have much of a sweet tooth. I can’t stand Icing (frosting) or Meringue. I am rather fond of Digestive biscuits ( a plain cookie) and I like Kit Kats.

    1. Hahah, I hear ya Kristian. I try to make sure that the listener is also included in these TidePodcasts. So, whenever we talk about something they know exactly what we are discussing.

      I ask the dumb questions, it’s a skill that I’ve honed throughout my life. Just like falling down and being super gullible. My superpowers!

  3. Congratulations on the nomination and thank you for passing it on, Kristian!

    I absolutely agree with #10 and I think you summed it up well! I too am an adventurer but not a thrill seeker, although many people tend to mesh the two together.
