Sunshine. You are my sunshine… Sung tunelessly in the dark.


It has been a crazy few days and I have neglected my blog shamelessly. I apologise. It never occurred to me when I started anyone would actually read it.

I have also been suffering the curse of the onset of winter so this award from Shaun at Praying for One Day answered my prayers and bought some sunshine into my cold dark study with The Sunshine Award.

Of course there are rules *sigh*.

If I were Gwyneth, the world’s most hated celebrity, I would shed a tear on my podium. Why is she so hated by the way? It’s like hating vanilla ice-cream.  I digress.

The rules

  • Include the award’s logo in a post or on your Blog (I still have to follow Shaun instructions for the last one, so keep your fingers crossed)
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself
  • Nominate 10 Bloggers
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their Blogs, letting them know they have been nominated
  • Link the person who nominated you

Ten questions about myself. Good heavens! I am stumped so I will follow Shaun’s example and answer the ones he did. Well most of them. I found creativity on the way.

  1. Favorite colour: Purple
  2. Favorite animal: Cheetah
  3. Favorite number: Seven
  4. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Chocolate milkshakes and tea (that’s a necessity and my stranded on a desert island must have)
  5. Favourite chocolate: Lindt.
  6. My passion(s):  Finding the humour in the everyday stuff and of course the three hellions I’m doing my best to raise to adulthood in spite of their attempts otherwise
  7. Favourite movie:Clockwise with John Cleese. It never fails to reduce me to tears and hysterical laughter.
  8. Favourite holiday:19 September. International Talk like a Pirate Day. Yo ho me hearties! You can send me Johnny Depp for my birthday if you like.
  9. If I had 15 minutes to do whatever I wanted:I’d have a cup of tea and 15 minute neck massage. I’m that easy.
  10. If I could live anywhere in the world: The Scottish Highlands or Tahiti – can I commute?

I write because I have to. It is a compulsion. I do it to vent, to laugh and to remember. I blog because it has been so long since I had to write with a pen that my hand would go into cramp if I tried to write a journal.

  1. Thank you so much, Victoria! I could have sworn I was already following you, by the way. My apologies for this oversight! I too like purple best. It’s just the nicest color, really. As for Gwyneth, I guess it’s like hating vanilla ice cream, if said vanilla ice cream were full of poisonous bugs or something (can you tell I’m not a fan??)

    1. I refuse to wait until I’m old to wear purple. As for Gwyn – I have been sitting wracking my brains for something, anything to say about her. Something like, “But she was great in…” Only I have no idea what she was great in. Or what she was in for that matter. Oh well.

  2. Congrats… and thank you! That’s the nicest sounding award ever, and I’m so grateful to have made your list! BTW I love the Scottish Highlands, too. That would be a great place to live… though I couldn’t deal with all the bagpipes. 🙂

  3. Thank you so, so much for this award but I am afraid I have already been nominated for it and attached it to my website, but I still am very grateful for you choosing me and a little bit honoured to have it again so I will follow the rules and pass it on. I hope this is OK

    1. Exactly.. And Ms Paltrow is like vanilla ice cream. She’s sweet, harmless and without any flavour whatsoever. I can’t fathom it. Also I lost a bet. I bet my son that Kim Kardashian would be number 1, against his choice, Justin Bieber. The Bieb got more hating than Kim. Now I owe him ice-cream.

      1. HA HA HA HA
        Serves you right for betting against the Beiber..

        Shaun x

      2. lol…
        I think when you vote against Beiber, you will lose.


        Shaun 🙂
