Sunshine and fun...

Sarah, my friend, who blogs at Sew Me has kindly nominated me for a Sunshine Award.

 It's aim is to pass on a bit of happiness and to be a bit of fun where you answer a few questions and link to some blogs that you want to pass the sunshine onto. Thank you Sarah for thinking of me.

So here is a little bit more about me:

Favourite colour - I just love yellowy green with pink (am I allowed two?).
Animal - I am a cat lover and have always had a cat. Our present one is a rescue cat and is minute. She was the runt of the litter left in a dyke to die. She and her brothers were rescued by the local postman. She follows me around the house and is a real companion.
Number - I don't think that I have ever thought of having a favourite number. If I ever have to pick one then I would pick 7, as my birthday is on the 7th.
Drink - I am definitely a tea drinker but I like a prosecco in warm weather!
Passion - Well I love sewing and cannot imagine what I did eighteen months ago before I got the sewing bug. I am also a bit strange too as I like studying and learning. Perhaps this is because I did my degrees when my children were little and the effort was huge.
Giving or getting - Ooh I love both. There is something so special when you watch someone unwrap a present but  I also love receiving presents. I think that birthdays are special and always look forward to mine (with or without presents)!
Favourite Day - receiving my PhD and seeing my 'men' up on the balcony looking proud of me.
Favourite Flower - Freesias or any flower with a fragrance.Now you know a little more about me I am going to pass on this little Sunshine Award to four others (before they are picked by anyone else!).
