The Sunshine Award.

The Sunshine Award awarded to me by the fabulous Mumabulous and the very awesome RoboMum

The Sunshine Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers. The recipients of the Sunshine Award are: “Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere”. The way the award works is this: Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Answer questions about yourself. Select 10 of your favourite bloggers, link their blogs to your post and let them know they have been awarded the Sunshine Award!

Wow thanks Mumabulous and Robomum!!

I am absolutely in love with blogging.  The writing and the reading.  I have loved every minute of my journey so far.  It really has become a hobby I enjoy.  I love sitting down when the house is quiet and churning out a post whether it be a whinge or a recipe or photos.  Its become a way to capture family memories and also improve my communication skills and keep my brain active!!  I love reading about other peoples experiences and opinions, some are completely different to my own and I love seeing situations from other points of view.

Now the fun part, answering of the questions.

1. Favourite Time of the Year?

Spring and autumn and winter!!  I love the temperatures of spring and autumn and I love winter when I do not have to leave the house and also the winter comfort food!!

2. Favourite Festive movie?

It is not Christmas without seeing National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!!

3. What is your Passion?

Hmmm good question.  At the moment I would have to say my passion is my boys first and foremost.  Followed by music and reading. 

4. Favourite Colour?

Most shades of blue!!  The colour of the sky on a clear day is one of my faves!!

5. Favourite time of the Day?

The moment as I get into bed at night and am just about to fall asleep.

6. Favourite Flower?

Gerberas, frangipani, gardenia, roses, lavender, hibiscus...........

7. Favourite Non-Alcoholic Beverage?

Depending on the time of day or temperature I like hot chocolate, tea, diet lemonade, cordial.  However the one main favourite is my first cup of coffee in the morning. 

8. Favourite Physical Activity?

I don't mind the odd walk but swimming is the thing for me.  I used to do aqua aerobics years ago and found that awesome exercise.  No I did not wear a frilly cossie or a bathing cap!!

9. Favourite Vacation?

Castaway Island Fiji.  That was easy!!

Now I get to choose 10 bloggers and in no particular order they are- drumroll please!!!

Mums Take Five
Mrs D's Maunderings
Declutterbug versus Captain Stingypants
My Ranty Pants
Little White Dove
Four Little Piglets

Here is where I am stuck as not only did I receive this award not once but twice but all the fabulous people I had ready to bestow an award on have already been honoured.  So I am short one and I would love for you guys to nominate one on my behalf. 

Thanks again Mumabulous and RoboMum you guys have made my week!!
