Sunshine Blogger Award revisited

Nima from the Tenth Zodiac has nudged me into participating in this award.
Congratulations to her for her nomination. You can nip over to her blog here and have a browse, it’s worth a look.
I love to pass on a little sunshine and have been nominated for this particular one on a few occasions. I appreciate the nomination or simply being mentioned, so without further ado here we go:

Sunshine Blogger Award Rules

The Sunshine Blogger Award is given by bloggers to bloggers who inspire positiveness and creativity in the blogging community. The rules are:

  1. Thank blogger(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
  3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  4. Nominate up to 11 new blogs to receive the award, write them 11 new questions and notify them about the nomination. 

1 and 2 are now done, and Nima’s questions are next:

  1. Do you think your name is cute ?
    I should have been a boy and when I turned up Mum opted for the main character in the book she was reading about a girl and her horse. I’m glad I wasn’t called after the horse. For years my aunts thought Di was an abbreviation for Dinah. I like SWMBO though which is what Hubby calls me, and that is cute!

  2. If you had a chance to name yourself, which name would you choose and why ?
    I fancy Fred, plain simple and basic.
  3. Do you have any hobbies other than writing?
    Music, card making, cooking, jigsaw puzzles.
  4. Be it books or movies, if given chance,which character’s life would you choose to live and why?
    This one stumped me as I’m happy with my life.
  5. If you have a job now, are you happy with it? If you could change it now, which one would you choose ?
    I loved my job in the bank until I was made redundant in 2001. From there I was a credit controller chasing the debts for a book company, so more figure work which I enjoy and have a natural aptitude for. I retired in 2007, though won’t get my state pension for another 2 years.
  6. Do you like to cook ?
    Love it.
  7. Which is your Zodiac sign?
    Taurus, born in the Chinese year of the Monkey (1956).
  8. Do you believe in predictions made for your zodiac sign?
    I’ve been told I have a lot of Monkey Taurean traits, however I think we are all individuals and it’s quite an interesting ‘science’.
  9. Are you, so far, proud and satisfied with your blog’s progress?
    I am overwhelmed by how well my blog is being received, and thank every one of my readers and followers for having a look and passing their comments.
  10. What’s the most useless piece of knowledge you know?
    That there are 254 ways of scoring 26 on a dart board (see this post).
  11. Which is your favorite work from your blog ? Leave the link so that everyone can enjoy !!
    I have several favourites, especially about my parents, the dog and some of my poetry. I do a lot of photo challenges, and sometimes they turn out better than I’d hoped. You might enjoy this one

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
