Sunshine Award

A big thank you to  writingthebody  for nominating me for the sunshine award ! I do already have it  but I am happy to nominate  some new People !


Here are the 10 questions and my answers to them….

What inspired you to start blogging?
After a life changing accident I found it hard to cope with the pain so I was sent to pain clinic ! The therapist suggest , that as I visualised  so well I should write poetry. So hence my blog  was born.

How did you come up with the name to your blog?

Itwas a throw back from a nickname.

What is your favorite blog that you like to read?
I cannot say  because I love you all and you are so different. .

Tell about your dream job.
It would be working up close and personal with the public , thinking on my feet and solving problems…… just a pipe dream now.

Is your glass half full or half empty?
night now it is empty  but I swing betwixt and between

If you could go anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?

What food can you absolutely not eat?
Jellied eels

Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Milk and UK sorry rest of the world no offence

How much time do you spend blogging?
Too much! my husband is always moaning at me for being on the laptop!

Do you watch TV – if so, what are some of your favorite shows?

I love soaps and drama , mind you love  anything! if it is interesting.

  I need to thank Eye-Dancers for this award which is new to me. Reality Blog Award!  Please check out  Eye-Dancers great website–it’s just the kind of place you’ll want to go and spend some time.  I am very grateful for the award. 

There are five questions that go along with this award.  So, let’s have at it!

1) If you could change one thing, what would you change?

I would irradiate all addictions, because they  cause so much misery to addict and loved ones alike.

2) If you could repeat an age, what age would it be?

I have given this great thought and …no I would not like to be any age I have been before. Each age brings it’s pains and it’s joys  but no I am fine as I am thanks

3) What is one thing that really scares you?

Life and people.But I do keep going!

4) What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you will be able to complete it?

I would dearly love to see Vlad in print or as an ebook , also I would love to have a book of poems… sorry I know that is selfish  but I am being honest!

5) If you could be someone else for the day, who would you be?

An aid worker in a refugee camp  I have always wanted to go Africa or a disaster site to help.

Now, I would like to nominate the following blogs for the Reality Award.  Please check them out and take a look around these wonderful websites!  They are all rich and diverse sites, with so much to offer.

and many many more !:0  🙂 😉 🙂

Blogger of the Year Award.

Thank you so much for this award. If you’re interested in natural science, please drop by and visit her!

The “Blog of the Year” award is a little different from some other awards, because you accumulate stars.

Here are the ‘rules’ for this award:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them.

5 You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience.

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, then you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

For more information check the FAQ on The Thought Palette.

There are so many blogs that I’d like to nominate. Truly I would love to nominate all of my friends but after much thought here are a few.

Martin is Martin is Martin he writes verse the like of which I have not seen before. To add to that he now reads it for us occasionally which is magic! OH! and he will not like me nominating him as he is humble.

I really would like to add more blogging but right now I have to go and may be able to get back to this post for a few days  so for now that will have to do ! I swear you are all brilliant so please don’t think I am mean for not mentioning you . God bless and hug you all. xxxx
