Sunshine Award

Last week I was awarded the Sunshine Award by Janice Horton, my Scottish friend whom I first met at the RNA Conference at Penrith last year. Janice writes wonderful novels set in her native Scotland. Her new book, ‘How to Party Online’ is something completely different, and I’m really looking forward to reading it. Find out more http://janicehortonwriter.blogspot.co.uk/
Now I have to answer some questions!
Favourite Colour: Blue – my school uniform was blue, and I was in the Girl Guides, and then a leader for 30+ years (another blue uniform) When buying clothes, I gravitate towards anything blue, and have to force myself to vary my choice at time!
Favourite Animal: I had a cat for 18 years and I like that they’re independent but can choose when they want to be cuddled.
Favourite Number: Don’t think I have one.
Favourite Non-alcoholic Drink: Diet Coke or Pepsi, or even cheap supermarket cola.
Favourite Alcoholic Drink: Lager, preferably Carlsberg or Carling.
Facebook or Twitter: Definitely Facebook, I’ve never really got the hang of Twitter.
Your Passion(s): Writing, family history, English Lake District and Ireland. Oh, and pub lunches too!
Giving or getting presents: Both!
Favourite Day: Now that I’m retired, every day is weekend to me
Favourite Flowers: Definitely daffodils, because they’re the sign that spring really is here
And now I nominate these 7 lovely author bloggers whom I love to visit:
Rosemary Gemmell - Reading and Writing
Claudia Moser - The Story
Kathy Thompson Coombs -The Giggling Trucker's Wife
Cathy Graham - Cattitude and Gratitude


  1. Congratulations on your award! I had to smile at the daffodils. I was SO happy to see them this year :)

  2. I agree, Tonja - they were so late flowering this year.

  3. Nice answers and thank you, will have to do some thinking :)
