Sunshine Blogger Award

I love a good blogger tag (as you know…) and the lovely Brenda at Kids, Coffee and Chaos nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I love these tags for getting to know other bloggers and spreading the #bloglove. It’s the standard format, I answer the questions put to me by Brenda and then write my own questions for the bloggers that I choose to nominate. Thank you so much for the nomination – please go and check out the Kids, Coffee and Chaos blog as it’s so honest and funny. The Sunshine Blogger Award post is a good one to get you started. Brenda is also a really supportive and kind member of the blogging community! Snaps for Brenda (yeah, I watched Legally Blonde recently…)

1. What is your favorite TV show?

I am thrilled that Cold Feet is back! I love lots of the Netflix shows; recently I really got into The Get Down. My old fave has got to be Ab Fab though.

2. What is your go to dinner?

I can’t cook so if I’m cooking for myself it’ll be pasta and cheese. It was a staple when I was a student! I love it if I’m feeling a bit ill (or hungover…)

3. What is your all time favorite alcoholic beverage?

JUST ONE?! Oh no. A mojito? Champagne? There are so many alcoholic delights in the world. My go-to is lager though.

4. What is your goal for the next year?

Oh this is a good question! I don’t know…at the moment my father in law is teaching me some admin and bookkeeping bits and pieces for the family business. I want to get that mastered, carry on blogging and enjoy this time with my little man!

5. What is the last thing you ate?

A bowl of cereal. Not very exciting eh?

6. How do you like your coffee?

I don’t! I am not a coffee drinker (sorry!! I know you’re a fan…). I didn’t even drink tea until I went to uni and I can easily go a few days without a hot drink at all. I like coffee flavoured chocolate, does that count? The ones in Roses tins are delightful.

7. If you have kids, is there a meaning behind their names?

Yes, my son is named after my Grandad, who I was really close to. His middle name is the Scottish family name that comes from my husband’s grandfather’s family, too. I like that his name has links to some of his ancestors.

8. What is your favorite family tradition? How long have you been doing it?

I don’t know if we have any traditions just the 3 of us yet…but as an extended family we go camping every summer with my side of the family. It’s so much fun and a brilliant chance to all get some proper time together. We have lots of Christmas traditions and I LOVE Christmas so all of those are special, too.

9. What is the last book you read?

Diane Chamberlain – Pretending to Dance . It was quite a page turner!

10. What is your favorite color?

Yellow. Full of happiness!

Me (blonde, 26 year old) and TM (bald 9 month old baby) looking at the camera with trees and blue sky behind us. My hair is blowing slightly over TM's head, and the picture is cut off so you can only see the top of his head, his blue eyes and nose. I am wearing sunglasses and smiling at the camera and wearing a white and black stripy top
A sunny picture for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

Here are the questions for my nominees (again, I apologise for the poor quality questions!!):

  1. What song is guaranteed to get you on the dancefloor?
  2. If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would you be and why?
  3. What’s your favourite item of clothing? (this is not a kinky question, soz if it sounds that way!!)
  4. Which fictional character do you think you’re most like?
  5. What’s your favourite wine? (or if you don’t drink wine, favourite beer/spirit?)
  6. How regularly do you blog? Would you like to blog more often?
  7. Which singer or band do you wish you could see live?
  8. I don’t have a party trick, which makes me really sad. Do you have one and what is it?
  9. What is your must-have item since having kids?
  10. I am buying you cake. What are you having?

    1. Ahh that’s lovely 😃 Diane Chamberlain is great, I think that was her most recent one and I found it slightly less dark and intense than some of her books but still really gripping – perfect! Haha when I read the question back I was like oooh does that sound wrong?! Xxx


  2. ‘There are so many alcoholic delights in the world’ – a woman after my own heart! Haha. Thanks again so very much for including me on your list of nominees. I am officially on it! xx
