About Sunshine Blogger Award:
It is given to those who are creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.
a. Nominate 11 people and notify them via comment.
b. Ask them new 11 questions.
c. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
d. Display the award logo on your blog post.
e. Answer the 11 questions asked
1. Do you search for difficult words in your writing? like I do. I have to search for meaning.
No, I do not look up difficult words to use in my writing. I use words that I commonly use in speech.
2. What do you prefer tea or coffee? For any specific flavour, please mention the same.
I detest coffee but I drink tea, properly made in a teapot. The tea I tend to have is Assam which isn’t a flavour of tea, tea is a leaf from the Camellia Sinensis plant and Assam is a region in India which grows it. Tea takes on characteristics depending on where it is grown and Assam tea is known for its strong malty taste. I take my tea with milk but no sugar.
3. Most of the time, I am found writing while walking to and fro in my room, on my phone’s notepad. Do you like writing on phones or tablets or laptops?
4. Where would you like to live, if not the current country?
I couldn’t imagine living anywhere other than England. Despite the weather and the overcrowding, I don’t think I could call anywhere else home.
5. How many books do you have in your own library?
Too many to count, so more than four.
6. Have you participated in any protests for any social cause? Which one and why?
7. A motivating line of your own, if this was an award given to you on stage.
Thank you to everyone who considers me worthy of this award. You’re all fabulous, Thank you and keep reading my blog. 🙂
8. What genre do you prefer in movies?
I prefer movies or films that transcend genres. The best films have elements of both humour and tragedy. I do have a soft spot for musicals.
9. Are you a bathroom singer?
I sing in the shower and in the living room and also when driving my car. This time of year I sing a lot of Christmas Carols.
10. How do you spend your Sunday?
Cleaning out the chickens, a bit of housework and then a long soak in the bath ready for Monday.
11. Do you like watching TV? What do you prefer watching?
I don’t watch a lot of TV, I find most TV programmes at the moment extremely banal, but I do enjoy a documentary or an old sitcom, like Blackadder (if you don’t know what Blackadder is, you need to look it up).
