Sunshine Award

I know the weather is too rainy and cold for May right now but the sun is shining for me: Esther, my new colleague, who is also a blogger (have a look at her blog, My English Scrapbook - a great place to find all sorts of resources) has nominated my blog for the Sunshine Award. 

The Sunshine Award is a blogger-to-blogger award to "bloggers who are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere." I guess it is something like saying "you bring sunshine into people´s lives" - at least, that´s what I have decided it means for me - just because it sounds so beautiful... It is such a great honour to feel appreciated like this by a colleague... Thanks, Esther!

As part of the acceptance, I am meant to write 7 facts about me. Funnily enough, I am not too willing to talk that openly about myself - even though I am fully aware of the fact that my personality and ideas permeate every single entry in the blog. Anyway, here it goes:

  1. I have been an EFL teacher for 30 years 
  2. I like my job very much (except grading...)
  3. I just love it when former students of mine get in touch with me
  4. I love travelling in general but I enjoy it most when the trip includes a visit to a friend
  5. I´ll tell you a secret: I only have 2 friends on Facebook and I do not intend to have any more because it was there where I learnt about the death of a dear friend and I am finding it hard to get over it.
  6. I live in Lugo but I was born on the Atlantic coast and I do miss the sea: going for a swim in the ocean is a real pleasure for me
  7. I wish the world were a much fairer place!
There is one more requirement I need to fulfill to accept the award: I must nominate from 5 to 10 other blogs. Here are my nominees:

  1. Vivo nunha aldea. A colleague from my school, Belén, a music teacher, writes this blog where she shares her experience after having moved from the city to a little village. It is a sort of Green Acres in a blog instead of a TV series (I wonder what she will think of this simile...)
  2. En la luna de Babel. For those of us in love with words and languages, this is a lovely blog about languages and translation
  3. In Plain English: beautiful design and very interesting entries for lovers of British literature 
  4. Labor English Zone. Raquel and Álvaro are two devoted teachers who devise very original activities for their students. Álvaro is a devoted writer; he has one more blog, Así es... o no..., where he writes about a very wide range of topics - and I think he is a very good writer.
  5. Falsos amigos: one more blog for lovers of words and languages
  6. SwissMiss is a design blog run by Tina Roth Eisenberg. This blog is like a box of assorted Swiss chocolates: you know all the entries will be good but some will be tastier than others.
