It didn’t matter that it was raining this morning (Spring, you missed your cue}. Didn’t matter that the dishes from last night were still waiting for me on the sink, or that the dog put her muddy paw prints all over the floor.
Because inside, I’m sunshine.
And no amount of rainclouds or mud will dampen my spirits today.
Also, the lovely Leslie from Coffee, Pearls and Grace tagged me with some questions:
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
To turn water into wine. Or coal into diamonds. Basically to transform objects. Hey, I’d be a transformer, without the clunky wheels and butch engines though.
Who is your style icon?
Probably Cate Blanchett. I love her elegance and simple style of beauty.
What is your favorite quote?
I have hundreds of them. But recently: “For whatsoever from one place doth fall, Is with the tide unto an other brought: For there is nothing lost, that may be found, if sought.” — Edmund Spenser
What is the best compliment you ever received?
I can’t really think of anything specific. But someone recently emailed me to tell me that Milk Fever was their all time favourite book. That gave me a very warm glow inside.
What playlist/CD is in your CD player/playing right now?
Maxwell – Black summers night is my current favourite.
Are you a night owl or morning person?
Night owl. Definitely. Although due to the weekly school run, I can’t stay up as late as I’d like to anymore. So I have been forced into a better balance. Left to my natural rhythm though, I’d go to bed at 3 and wake up at 11. Lovely.
Do you prefer dogs or cats?
Can’t I have one of each? No? Well, in that case, dogs. Cats don’t need me anyway.
What is the meaning behind your blog name.
It’s the title of my debut novel, Milk Fever. The condition is something cows get when birthing and calcium levels in the blood drop dangerously low. It makes an appearance in the book.
So, now I need to nominate two other bloggers to tag.
Enjoy your inner sunshine folks.
