I have been given a Sunshine Flower by Jean Tubridy, for which I am most grateful and surprised! I do not normally take part in these blog ‘awards’, as they are so time consuming but have made an exception here to mark a beautiful sun-filled summer of 2013 and to acknowledge the wonderful bloggers that I follow and who follow my scribbles here on the internet. I am doing so as a once-off celebration of you all!
There are rules :

I have followed Jean Tubridy’s blog almost from the get-go. Such a wonderful writer with a beautiful command of English who is able to get to the heart of the matter in a half sentence. Inspirational, funny, delightful.

Rule 3: List Ten Random Things about Yourself
These things enlighten my life
1. I love the sun and first thing every morning I look to see if the golden rays are dancing on the tree outside my bedroom window.
2. I love light – my house faces south with huge windows to the south and to the west to enjoy the setting sun
3. I love flowers – wild and in the garden – and spend hours peering at them.
4. I love scenery and am blessed to live in Ireland that has such wonderful scenery.
5. I love books and good writing and read in the hope that some of the writing eloquence might be transmitted to me!
6. I love music, especially the big emotional kind, such as Renee Fleming singing Song to the Moon.
7. I love the Moon and the Stars and am blessed with my own piece of sky here in the country and have a telescope to enjoy them all the more!
8.I love meeting with friends for coffee or to go to theatre or just for a chat as they lighten my days!
9. I love solitary walks in the company of birds and insects and hearing the sounds of nature.
10. I love the internet and blogging- it has enlightened me more than anything else in my life and opened up a whole new world to me in the ‘golden’ years of life.
