It's Sunshine Awards Time!

The Sunshine Award is a lovely sunny flower that bloggers give to other “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.

Thanks so much to
Ally Shields and Jerrie Alexander - the  fabulous bloggers who passed the award to me. 

As with most awards, the Sunshine Award comes with a few simple rules:

(1) Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
(2) Do the Q&A below
(3) Pass on the award to 10-12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.

Here are my answers to the questions:

Favourite Colour: Red. It's the colour of my car, my favourite football team and it's a positive, rich colour.

Favourite Animal: Mimi, my 17 year old Tortoiseshell cat. She's affectionate, purrs every time you look at her and, if I'm not feeling well, she'll even delay her meal to make sure I'm OK.
Favourite Number: This changes so I can't really say I have one.

Favourite Non-alcoholic Drink: Cranberry juice probably, although the fresh orange juice I had in Israel tops everything

Facebook or Twitter: Twitter, I think, although I'm not wild about either of them.

Your Passion: Writing (no surprises there then!)

Giving or getting presents: Giving - as long as I've got it right!

Favourite Day: When my publisher says, 'yes'!

Favourite Flowers: Red roses and carnatians. It's that red thing again! 


Finally, these are the 12 fantastic bloggers I'm tagging for this award (Now, I'm off to tell them, so maybe they'll have posts up in a day or two. If not, at least you can look  around some terrific sites!):
