A Summer Sun Award, Or Two

Summer Sun Award

I must thank both the lovely (and terrible) Lady Fury and Incy for giving me this award.  Apparently you have to have brightened the day of others in some way as a blogger in order to receive it.  So thank you ladies!

Apparently I must now answer the following sunny questions:

Favourite song with summer in the title or the lyrics (give the line): ‘Summertime and the living is easy.’  Yes I know that’s a slight cheat and I don’t care, it’s an awesome song – go and listen to it in full.  Immediately.

Favourite book about summer: I never have favourite books, you may as well ask me if I have favourite children.  However, this Summer I have been reading an anthology called Summer With Love by Sarah Morgan, which is the fab reissue of the stories of triplets Katy, Libby and Alex – plus I am part way through reading Sinfully Summer by Aimee Duffy, which I have been a fan of since I read part of the first draft several years ago.

Favourite hot summer film: Um, I can’t actually think of a ‘hot summer film.’  Does this make me a bad person?  I loved the whole summer blockbuster thing as a child though.  I remember seeing at the cinema and loving Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  I believe that came out in the summer right?

Favourite summer memory: Probably too many to mention, but I loved being at my Grandfather’s house and charging around the gardens all day and finding tadpoles in the river.  Often I’d be found charging around my parents’ garden too – or in the fort my Mum invariably had to make for me involving old furniture and the washing line.

Favourite summer holiday destination: Austria, but as an adult it’s fast becoming Italy.  I’m a European kinda girl.

What books will be in your suitcase this summer? Well I was good this year and took my Kindle, so I had rather endless possibilities.  Do books I bought on holiday and brought back count?  Anyhow, there’s many more I’m going to be buying yet.

What’s your likely destination this summer?  Italy, I’ve already been to Tuscany!

What hottie would you most like to be sharing the hot days and long nights with his summer?  Now that would be telling.  Na na na na na!
