Someone and by someone I mean the wise and all knowing Cindy Dwyer has finally recognised my genius and bestowed a ‘Sunshine Blogger Award’ upon yours truly. I have to admit I’ve never heard of the Sunshine Blogger Award but at this stage I’ll take whatever I can get.
So apparently the procedure is I answer a few questions and then send on the award to ten more underappreciated geniuses who can either answer the questions or just sit back and bask in the kudos. So here we go … (man this is a bit easier than a normal blog post!)
1. What is your favourite Christmas/festive movie?
Terminator 2 – yeah you heard me.
2. What is your favourite flower?
Flowers? Seriously? Well I guess whichever ones put a smile on the missus’s face.
3. What is your favourite non-alcoholic beverage?
Coffee! I drink way too much of it and when I don’t get my cup in the morning I spend the rest of the day moping around in zombie land.
4. What is your passion?
Writing something that brings a tear to somebody’s eye, alas it’s very hard to do, so if I can’t manage that I’ll just hit them with a cheap joke instead.
5. What is your favourite time of year?
Summer – unfortunately in Ireland we don’t get them.
6. What is your favourite time of day?
Well it’s not 6 in the morning anyway, that’s for damn sure.
7. What is your favourite physical activity?
Swimming. (I could have said something naughty but the mother has the address of this place.)
8. What is your favourite vacation?
I have an all time favourite vacation. I’d just met the missus a few months before and we decided to run off on a month long inter-rail trip around Europe. I also have a favourite everyday (I wish) vacation spot – A little beach in Co. Kerry that shall remain nameless.
So ten nominations of my own hmm ….
L.B. Gale - Don’t ask me what L.B. stands but she really knows her fantasy.
Janie Chang All you ever needed to know about Chinese history.
Valerie Sirr – A writer from the big smoke of Dublin
Erin O’Quinn – Irish historical fiction writer
Flick Merauld - Cats, dogs and ebooks
Elise Fallson – Aspiring writer that blogs about anything and everything.
Caren Kennedy – All about writing
L.P Fergusson - Creator of Duntisbourne Hall
Erin Brady Pike - (I think she may already have this award!)
Cheryl Headford – Don’t let the content warning scare you off.
And now its time for me to get away from this damn interweb for a while and try to do some proper writing for a change!
