The Sunshine Blogger Award

The Sunshine Blogger Award is an Award given to bloggers who are creative, positive and inspiring, while spreading “sunshine” to the blogging community.  I do try and be positive and to make people happy so this really means a lot to me.  For this reason I am really grateful to Pippa of for nominating me 😀 check out her blog if you haven’t already, she describes it as the ramblings  of a country dweller, gardener, crafter and dog lover and it’s great.

I love awards like this as I think it’s a great way of getting to know the people you talk to and finding out a bit more about them 🙂

The Sunshine Blogger Award Rules are:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and share their blog link.
  2. Answer the 11 questions that you were given.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and create 11 new questions to go along with it.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post or on your blog.

So now for Pippa’s questions:

What makes you happy?

So many things, if I can do something that makes a difference and makes people happy then that is so rewarding and gives instant gratification.  I am happy when people around me are happy, happy when my family are happy, happy when I feel contented and things are going ok. A smile from my dog makes me happy, gosh I could go on and on…

Whats your favourite way to relax?

Again, you’ll think I’m easily pleased (or vague – take your pick!) but there are so many things. I like swimming, reading, writing, sitting in the garden, watching a good TV programme, pottering around in the garden, chatting with friends, walking the dog, loads of things make me feel relaxed.

Do you play any sports? If so which ones, if not why not?

No but I used to run a lot until injuries prevented this. Oh I do swim and go to Pilates if that counts.

Bath or Shower?

Shower – we had our bathroom done last year and only have a walk in shower now.  I actually miss having a lovely relaxing bath sometimes though.

What is your favourite topic to write about?

Hmmm this is tricky as I write about loads of different things.  I like writing about things that trigger memories the most I think though. Hopefully these are things that other people can relate to so it can make them feel good when they think about things too.

Whats your biggest fear?

Honestly this would have to be something bad happening to any of my family.

If you could tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be?

There are so so many things but I can’t really talk about them all here.  Actually I might say aim higher when I was at school.  I did fairly well in my exams but I know I could have achieved more if I had made more effort. Oh another thing, stand up to people who were horrible to me and be stronger because people don’t have to put up with other people being nasty to them.

Whats your favourite colour?

I don’t have one in particular but I love pastel colours like pink, blues, greens, depending on the thing that is coloured!!

TV series or Movie?

If it’s a good film, then I’d say film.

What are your weekend plans?

Well I went to Pilates this morning, now I’m catching up on my blog and will look on the WordPress reader shortly.  I have the house to myself so I’m going to do a bit of spring (summer!) cleaning and then go to the garden centre.  I’m not sure about tomorrow yet but will probably go swimming in the morning.

iPhone or android?

Now I have an iPhone I would definitely say iPhone!! 😀

I hope you enjoyed reading my answers, I will nominate some fab bloggers via Twitter, so keep a look out in case you are tagged!

So now for my questions 🙂

What is your favourite day of the week and why?

What type of music do you like to listen to?

How did you decide what to name your blog? (Sorry I know we know the answer to some of these but just humour me!)

If you were lucky enough to own your own yacht (Oh, you do…🤫) what would you name it?

If you were going to be on Masterchef what would be your signature dish?

What are your most used emojis?

What things make you happy?

If you’re feeling a little bit fed up, what do you do to make yourself feel better?

Which farm animals do you like the best and why?

What is your favourite colour and what do you own in that colour?

What are you doing today?

Thanks for reading and do take a look at the blogs of all the people I have nominated, they’re all amazing ❤️


  1. Congrats on the award, lovely, and thank you so much for the nomination, what fantastic company to be in! I loved your answers, especially the advice to your teenage self, which really resonated with me too. Such a lovely post, I enjoyed finding out more about you 🙂 xx
