When I started this blog, it was for a few reasons… Firstly, I guess it was just because I like to write, it’s something I enjoy doing almost as much as I like reading. It’s also a form of therapy for me… I write about things and those things become clearer in my mind.
The thing is, for some reason, it hadn’t occurred to me that people might actually read it! So imagine my surprise when I checked my emails today to find a Sunshine Award from fellow blogger justbetweencousins!
I’d like to say a big Thank You (!) for nominating me for the Sunshine Award and for actually taking the time to read my thoughts on here, it’s much appreciated!
Now, in accordance with the Sunshine Award Rules, I agree to;
- Include the Sunshine Award image. (check)
- Thank the person who gave you the award. (check)
- Answer 10 questions about yourself. (Apparently, the giver can make up new ones. It could get interesting!) (check)
- Pass the award on to 10 Sunshine-worthy bloggers (Only 10?!) (check)
Love or Money? Love (can I have some money thrown in?… no?… okay just love!)
Favorite Book? I love childhood memoirs, my favourite being Ugly by Constance Briscoe.
Who is the Television Character you simply adore? Waynetta Slob… Kathy Burke is truly a comedy genius! (Though I do love Nan Taylor too, Catherine Tate is too funny!)
Favorite Music? I love strong women that say it how it is. Pink, Linda Perry, Eva Cassidy, Jessie J and Amy Winehouse to name a few.
Favorite type of movie? I like comedies best, thrillers are great but NOT horrors!!
Facebook or Twitter? ooohh, I can’t decide, I love both… facebook just edges it… for now!
Favorite number? 13. I was born on the 13th so consider it my lucky number!
Favourite Animal? Horses, I love them just because they are so beautiful.
Giving or receiving? Totally giving, I just wish I could afford to give some more!
Favorite flower? Poppy… that’s why I named my daughter Poppy!
And last but certainly not least, here is my list of Sunshine Award bloggers in absolutely no particular order…
One Fierce Mama I love Mummy blogs, they give us mums a way of expressing ourselves and proves there is a lot more to us than ‘nappies and baby sick’! I especially like the ones that keep it real!
Journey to my Heart… a day to day discovery we’re around the same age and have so many things in common, yet are so different. It’s refreshing and interesting to read about someone that you feel even the smallest connection to.
Heaven 4 Earth I love reading things that make me think… truly think on a really deep level. This is a blog that makes me think.
A Three Day Hat Another Mummy (or Mommy!) blog that ‘tells it how it is’!
Grenglish I went to school with Sarah and though we weren’t in the same circle of friends, the power of Facebook put me in touch with her blog… brilliantly written and touches on subjects everyone can relate to.
Cathy’s Voice Now I love her honesty and her fearlessness when it comes to her sharing her voice.
Texas Gaga because repurposing and upcycling is a dying art… but the only way we’ll save our planet…
Precious Paper A new blog but proof that upcycling is beautiful!
Missy B & Family She is ME! But she makes it much more interesting!
Pearlyqueennotebook reworking beautiful things… I need say no more than that!
These Bloggers old and new have caught my interest, inspired me, or made me look at my own life differently. I think that’s an amazing talent to possess and should be recognised.
Enjoy your Sunshine Award nominations and pass it on.
