The Sunshine Blogger #Award and personal questions – Sally Cronin Style!

Thank you so much to Sally for thinking of me for this award! I have received it previously, but I always like to share such posts, and answer the questions, because that is so much fun!

What is the most daring thing you have done? I’ve not jumped from planes, or zip wired across a rainforest… I haven’t moved countries (Counties, yes!) but I think the most daring thing I have done is to put myself out there via this blog and my writing. I have laid myself bare in so many ways, that I think that is pretty much daring enough!

Name one item still on your bucket list. I want to go to the Bahamas!

If you had a time machine, would you choose to live in the past or the future? That is a really tough one because if you live in the past, it’s like you aren’t happy with your present, but to go into the future is a total unknown! If pushed, I’d say as the time machine was mine, I’d love to see what the future held for my family and me, then go back to the past to relive some aspects of life, and unmake certain mistakes! (Is that cheating?)

What is your favourite movie of all time? Easy. Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book!

What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self? Don’t ever lose yourself trying to please others. It’s the advice my mother gave me when I was getting married, and I would tell the younger me that even earlier!

What is one of your guilty pleasures? I love that you ask about one of your guilty pleasures… are you implying we have many…? Well, mine would be…Chocolate… and lots of it!

Do you have any pets? We do indeed! We have Sonu Singh, our Punjabi cat and Heer & Ranjha, our parrotlet pair.

Tell us about one thing that really gets your goat. Parents not taking responsibility for their child! As a teacher, you see some wonderful parenting, but you also see the other side too…

Who would you invite to a celebrity dinner. List 5, dead or alive? I answered a similar question on one of Sally’s interviews before and said I wouldn’t want celebrities, but if I could bring someone back, it would be my four grandparents… But as I want to play properly… Hmmm… five celebs… Okay, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Arjun Rampal (gotta have some eye candy!), Charlie Chaplin and Roald Dahl.

What is your most annoying bad habit? Depends on who you ask! If it was my Hubby Dearest, he would say I am on Social Media too much! If you asked my kids, it would be I nag too much. If you ask one of my old colleagues, she used to say I breathed too loudly, and I have to say, I do when concentrating on something!

Name your current favourite song playing on your playlist right now. Oh, that is such a hard one! I like too much music to choose just one song! And in all honesty, I don’t have a playlist… it’s whatever CD is in the car stereo! But I do love this one right now…

    Great responses Ritu! This one from your mama is perfect. We need to tell this to everyone when they get married because I lost myself. “Don’t ever lose yourself trying to please others. It’s the advice my mother gave me when I was getting married, and I would tell the younger me that even earlier!”

    Wait, your colleague thought you breathe too loudly!? That is pretty rude! It’s almost like they are mad at you for existing!!

    Reblogged this on Smorgasbord Blog Magazine and commented:

    Poet Ritu Bhathal jumped right in with her answers to the Sunshine Blogger Award… and if you head over you will find a little bit more about her vices, her music choices, who she would have to dinner and the choice she would make if in a time machine.. thanks Ritu great responses.
