After a week of shopping and eating my way around The Big Apple, I was excited to get back to blogging, ready to share all my pictures and experiences with you all particularly after seeing all the lovely comments that were waiting for me. Including one very special comment from Shaz at For The Love Of Sass that said she had chosen to pass on the wonderful Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award to me! What a lovely thing to come home to and it has certainly given me plenty of reason to get writing a load of brilliant new posts for you to enjoy. This one is a big thank you to Shaz for thinking of me when she was given the award, it really is such an honour to be given awards from my fellow bloggers, and for all her lovely posts, which really brighten my day.
Here are the rules:
- Link to the blogger who nominated you and say thanks.
- Nominate blogs that you find a joy to read.
- Link to the nominees and tell them about the nomination.
- Include the award logo in your blog post.
- Answer the ten questions listed below.
1. What is your favourite colour?
Purple or gold, it’s a tie!
2. What is your favourite animal?
It has to be the elephant – they are just so intelligent and wise, you can tell that they have a lot of understanding of the world around them, they don’t just survive, they live and love.
3. What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?
I’d have to be really boring and say water – I drink the stuff all day long and never get bored of it and I’m just not really one for fizzy drinks or sugary substitutes. If I fancy something fruity, I would go for a pineapple juice or something with raspberry in it.
4. Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter?
Definitely Twitter, Facebook is great for sharing photos and talking to close friends or those travelling, but through Twitter I have made so many friends who are all over the world and it just seems so much more useful. Those on Facebook usually seem to use it as a format for complaint or stalking people and their lives – bit unhealthy. Twitter is great for sharing interesting reads, communicating with other bloggers and learning/finding out news.
5. What is your favourite pattern?
What a random question, I guess it would have to be the cutie-pie patterns of Cath Kidston – I love all the floral, ditsy patterns, they are just so cute and we have loads in our beach hut.
6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents?
Always giving, I love finding something really special for a friend or for family, something I know they will love and seeing their faces as they unwrap it. I got some tickets to take my Grandad to see the West End show Dreamboats and Petticoats and it really made his Christmas – it was so hard to keep them a secret for months though! I’ve had some bad experiences with receiving presents in recent years, mainly experiences or tickets to things that have turned out to be awful and ended up being ruined by something or other, so I think that has affected how I feel about getting gifts.
7. What is your favourite number?
I really don’t have one and although a little bit suspicious, I have never had a lucky number either. To be honest, after how much I hated maths at school, numbers are not one of my favourite things full stop!
8. What is your favourite day of the week?
It has to be Friday – I just love that Friday feeling and having the promise of a weekend to come, packed with fun and time spent with good friends and family.
9. What is your favourite flower?
I love daisies and daffodils – they are just so cute and pure, when you look at roses and lilies there is just so much hidden intention or meaning, but these are just so free of all that. I love that that they just grow wild in the fields near my home and by the roadsides because they are just so pretty and always remind me of making daisy chains when growing up, or when at festivals.
10. What is your passion?
Writing. It doesn’t matter whether it is at work for the newspaper, for my blog or for the festival website – I just enjoy watching the words flow and forming a story that I can share with the world.
Thanks for being you, and always sharing yourself with us.
Enjoy checking out some of these great blogs!
