The Sunshine Award

2013-05-21 SunshineAward ORIGINAL

#MyWANA friend Suzanne Sengl gave me the Sunshine Award last week. It came on a cold windy day and is so beautiful and happy I am delighted to accept it. Thanks Suzanne.

The rules of the Sunshine Award are:

  • Include the award’s logo (and rules) in a post on your blog.
  • Link to the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the 10 questions below.
  • Pass the award on to a bunch of “Sunshine inspiring” bloggers. The rules say 10 people, but choose however many you like. 

And here are the questions: (As Suzanne notes: We are talking about Favourites, and that will be Favorites to some of you. See her post on being bilingual.)

Favourite Colour I tend to wear neutral colours but splash out with the accessories – I love the blues and oranges in the logo above.

Favourite Animal I’d have to say the one in my life right now – it’s been many years since the birds were real


Favourite Number I came up with 4 and that’s about right.

Favourite Non Alcoholic Drink Freshly squeezed apple juice from out own tree

Favourite Alcoholic Drink Sauvignon Blanc – both NZ and Australian – they are different – but so many good ones.

Facebook or Twitter first choice G+

Passions As well as writing? – spinning wool, Classical history, history of textile manufacture including reproducing techniques, Colonial Australian history (all fodder for writing anyway).

Prefer getting or giving presents Hand crafting a gift for someone (but it’s pretty good to also receive handcrafted gifts).

Favourite City  I’d have to say Hobart – I love it’s Georgian waterfront

and that you’re right in the middle of the fishing fleet and the icebreakers going to Antarctica.

Favourite TV Show Recently I’ve enjoyed The Doctor Blake Mysteries  but a favourite, it’s hard to say.

Thanks again Suzanne, it was delightful. Tuesday Cafe is Suzanne’s blog – well worth visiting.
