My Weekly Story and Sunshine Awards

It has been a while, but one of my short stories, Time to be a Family Again, should be in this week’s My Weekly magazine. The title has been changed and it was accepted ages ago, but I’m really pleased to be inside the pages of My Weekly again!

I’m also pleased to accept another Sunshine Blogger Award from two lovely blogging friends, Erin O’Connor and Paula Martin. I just love that pretty flower brightening up the blog at this time of year. In exchange, I had to answer the following questions - this always makes me think, although it’s meant to be a bit of fun, and I usually end up with more than one answer!

1. What is your favourite Christmas/festive movie?
Little Women or It’s a Wonderful Life

2. What is your favourite flower?
Don’t really have one favourite but I like freesia, roses and alstroemeria

3. What is your favourite non-alcoholic beverage?
Bitter lemon, or lime and ginger beer

4. What is your passion?
Dancing (or it used to be!) - and reading, writing and film

5. What is your favourite time of year?
Autumn – especially cold, dry and sunny days

6. What is your favourite time of day?
Evening when all tasks are completed

7. What is your favourite physical activity?
Dancing, walking, or swimming

8. What is your favourite vacation?
A few days in Venice, Canada, or a cruise with an interesting itinerary

I am now pleased to pass this award on to some other lovely bloggers who can choose whether to accept or ignore the award, as I know lots of bloggers have already received this:

Carol Bevitt, Romy Sommer, Tracy Fells, Cara Cooper, Anita Chapman

I enjoyed all your answers and agree with Autumn being the loveliest season of them all. I've been enjoying writing today while the rain pours down.
