Sunshine Award, and why there is a photo of my handbag

Posted on Updated on

A wonderful thing happened to me. I returned from an extra long internet free Easter holiday break to several hundred emails including one very special email from Robin Coyle nominating me for the Sunshine Award, which I am honoured to accept and I thank her greatly for.

Sunshine Award rules:

    • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog. 
    • Answer 10 questions about yourself.
    • 10-12 other fabulous bloggers must be nominated.
    • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated. 
    • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

      Handbag Obsession

My answers:

    1. Favorite color: Sadly I wear a lot of serviceable black but I love colour and lean to blues & greens.
    2. Favorite animal: I have to choose? Cats, by a whisker.
    3. Favorite number: 11… something to do with birthdates and numerology.
    4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: I’m never far from a glass of water.
    5. Prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook used for good rather than evil.
    6. My passion: Being happy in the everyday.
    7. Prefer getting or giving presents: Giving, but randomly not on designated occasions.
    8. Favorite pattern:  I recently (on impulse) bought a skull patterned handbag inspired by Alexander McQueen and am a little bit in love with it despite initial misgivings.
    9. Favorite day of the week: Saturday mornings early, with the weekend ahead.
    10. Favorite flower: All… but today’s choice: the colour and fragrance of sweet peas zooms me back to my great grandmother’s garden.

    Hey EllaDee, thanks so much for nominating me for this. I’m really chuffed. Our telephone provider is just about to pull the plug on us, so I may be even slower than I usually am at doing these things (average 1 month), but I’ll put my mind to it during the downtime. Thanks again.

      Thnx for the reply. I’m in the same situation – currently no internet at home as the contract expired, I cancelled & changed to another provider & am waiting on the wireless USB stick, so am limited to accessing via my phone or in the office. Take your time & remember the rules are only guidelines 🙂
