Ami’s Questions

  1. What movie title best describes your life?  The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.
  2. If you were to create a single item of stationery, what would it be called and what would it include?  Hmm…some kind of storage device that could hold all my stationery and make it easy to transport it all by shrinking it all down into a small little box that could fit into your pocket.  It would be called the “Statio-shrink”.
  3. What are you most likely to become famous for?  Doing or saying something completely ridiculous!
  4. What is the most heartwarming thing you’ve ever seen?  Any act of kindness, especially the small things that go unnoticed in day to day life.
  5. Where would you spend all your time if you could?  At home with Roxy!  But Id move my home to the coast so I could spend time on the beach too!
  6. What amazing thing did you do that no-one was around to see?  I did a handstand once because my friend dared me, via text…I’d had a few gin and tonics at the time and I didn’t even remember to video it.
  7. What was your favourite board game growing up?  I had a game called “Beatrix Potter Race Game” which had figures of the animals (Jemima Puddle-Duck, Peter Rabbit and others) that you had to race around the board but there were cards you had to take if you landed on certain squares which could either help you along your way or scupper your progression.
  8. What is the best thing about you?  That I can listen, offer advice, and am loyal.
  9. What is your favourite smell?  Anything rose.  I’m currently loving Yardley English Rose.  I also love perfume from Lush called Lust.
  10. What was the best compliment you ever received?  Hmmm… that’s a hard one… probably, on days when I am not feeling too good about myself, what I’m wearing or how I look then the best compliments are people saying that I look nice, they seem to be the most memorable ones.
  11. Who are the most important people in your life?  My parents, brothers, their families and my friends.  And Roxy!

Sunshine Blog Award

Introduction

I really like Rory’s idea of the Awards being seen as being gifts rather than nominations, and as Rory explains so well himself, here is his explanation of award gifting…

I use the term ‘gifting’.

These awards are not true nominations, they are one stop awards. Now this means, that if you are gifted, you are under no bound obligation to pay it forwards or gift it forwards yourselves and can simply accept them as the gifted compliments to your blog that they are.

You do not have to answer any of the questions unless you so choose to do so, you do not have to further gift out if you do not choose to do so either.

Whilst there are many variations of TSBA doing the rounds – there is always a mixture of the original rules. Whilst l will always answer the questions asked of me whatever the number, l will ONLY ever ask 5 questions maximum of those that l gift to, as l think that is a much fairer number.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award for bloggers who are creative, positive, and inspiring – people who spread “sunshine” to the blogging world!

The Questions

  • If you could do something a bit naughty every day and not get caught, what would you do?

I think that I would become a modern day Robin Hood of sorts and steal food from supermarkets and donate the items to local foodbanks so that the poorer people of the community would have access to more products.

  • What are the unwritten rules to blogging?

This is a hard one given that there are so many different blog posts about blogging, the do’s and don’ts, guidelines and books that give so many different rules.  My personal unwritten rules are to always be true to yourself, have confidence in what you write, have fun with your blog and if you have any ideas then try them out and see what happens!

  • What kind of cult would you like to start?

I’m sure I am already a member of the blogging cult and, as a stationery obsessed woman, I seem to have fallen into some kind of cult with that!  The cult I would really like to start is one where everyone is nice to each other and gives each person the respect that they deserve, helps each other and doesn’t judge another because of their background, beliefs or actions, rather understands where those things came from.

  • Is a HotDog a sandwich, a roll or an overheated K9?

Definitely an overheated K9!!!

  • What is the most creative, inventive and imaginative insult you can come up with?

Blasphemous peanut headed twit warbler.

 

My Questions for my Giftees

  • If you had to choose one job to do for the rest of your life what would it be?
  • What is your favourite way to unwind after a long day?
  • If you could dance like no one was watching, what dance would you do and to what track?
  • What is your favourite word and why?
  • What is the hardest thing about blogging?
