I was thrilled to receive the Sunshine Blogger Award from Sally Cronin from Smorgasbord blog. It is nice to be thought of as a bearer of sunshine. You can read Sally’s wonderful post here: https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/2019/02/28/smorgasbord-blog-magazine-the-sunshine-blogger-award-and-personal-questions/
What is the most daring thing you have done?
I think that having children in this crazy world of ours is the most daring thing I have done. Sometimes I think I must have been quite mad to risk it. There are so many more risks to worry about nowadays with social media and everything is bigger and more frightening if it goes wrong.
I am glad I did have the little [big] darlings though. What would I do without them?
Name one item still on your bucket list.
I still want to go to Scotland. Get those tickets Mr Fox or no birthday cake!
If you had a time machine, would you choose to live in the past or the future?
I don’t want to live in the past but I wouldn’t mind being able to visit it. Think how much easier research would be and putting feeling and emotion into your stories would be a breeze.
I would like to visit England during WWII, South Africa during the Anglo Boer War, America during the Civil War and the War of Independence and Russia during the Cold War, for starters.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
Grease, I have watched it over 30 times during my life. This is my favourite song:
What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
I don’t know, I am happy with my life. I don’t think I would change anything.
What is one of your guilty pleasures?
I like to write limericks about my work colleagues. I share them, of course.
Do you have any pets?
No, two boys and a husband is enough.
Tell us about one thing that really gets your goat.
I don’t like moaning and groaning. I am essentially a happy and positive person and pointless negativity annoys me.
Who would you invite to a celebrity dinner. List 5, dead or alive?
William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, L.M. Montgomery, Charlotte Bronte and Anne Boleyn
What is your most annoying bad habit?
Annoying habit? Me? I am like Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way.
Here is the advert I answered [wink!]:
Name your current favorite song playing on your playlist right now.
I am still addicted to Making love out of nothing at all by Air Supply. I am not listening to music at the moment as I am listening to the audio book of Dracula which is perfectly thrilling.
Thank you again, Sally, for thinking of me.
Have a lovely week.
