The Sunshine Award
Hurrah! I have been given another award. how exciting. The lovely Debbie over at Nanny's Place: http://myblog-nannysplace.blogspot.co.uk/ has awarded me a sunshine award and I can tell you with the weather we have been having here lately, it is much needed. It is chucking it down outside as I write! If you haven't been to Nanny's Place yet, I can thoroughly recommend a visit:
1.) What is your favourite colour? It used to be blue but I have morphed towards green as I have got older. I think this also reflects my love of nature. In furnishings I love reds and white though.
2.) What is your favourite animal? Gotta be dogs because of my faithful friend Zena, but I love animals and got a thrill out of swimming with dolphins a few years ago.
3.) What is your favourite number? 15. My birthday is the Ides (15th) March and Julius Caesar was told to beware, but was murdered by his friends. I love it though. It is half way through the month - neither the beginning nor the end.
4.) What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink? For cold drinks elderflower pressé. For hot drinks I can't have caffeine so Redbush tea or if I am feeling very flush - rose pouchong tea from Fortnum and Mason, preferably in a lovely old vintage china tea cup and saucer.
5.) Which do you prefer - Facebook or Twitter? Facebook. I have twitter but hardly ever use it. I don't spend much time on Facebook either but it is a good place to catch up with people.
6.) What is your passion? Easy. My beautiful, amazing and wondrous children. I love them more than my own life as other mothers will understand. I rarely share personal photos, but as these are quite old, I don't think they would mind. Here is my gang of 4:
7.) Do you prefer giving or receiving presents? Ha ha - I do like giving and enjoy seeing someone smile when I give them something they love, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn't enjoy receiving too.
8.) What's your favourite pattern? Spots. I just adore them. I think they are cute and fun. I adore Cath Kidston fabrics which often have spots.
9.) What is your favourite day of the week? Saturday. Paid work stops and there is still another day before it starts again.
10.) What is your favourite flower? Lily if the Valley
