Look at that Sunshine

I’m not talking about the weather, although we have had a bit of sunshine in between the rain.  It seems that awards breed.  No sooner have I accepted the Liebster Award than I get nominated for the Sunshine Award too.  Thank you 20/20 Hines Sight. sunshineaward After a little search around the blogosphere, I found out that the Sunshine Award is given to those who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.  I do that?  Really? So, as with any of the blogger nominated awards there are rules.  These are: The rules for accepting the Sunshine Award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog
  • List 11 facts about YOU!
  • Nominate 10 other blogs to receive the award
  • Announce the nominations to the nominee

11 facts about me:

  1. I am a Virgo and a pig (Chinese astrology)
  2. I returned to education in 2004 to get my degree and graduated in 2007.  I promptly got a job as a PA and returned to administration instead of trying to use my degree in Sport and Exercise Science or Sports Therapy HND.  I discovered while I was studying that I love paperwork!
  3. I broke both wrists whilst ice skating in 2006, 17 years (almost to the day) after my mum broke both her wrists whilst horse riding.  I don’t do anything by halves.
  4. I love Disney, I know you know this but thinking of 11 things is hard.  I have visited Disney World 5 times, Disneyland Paris 4 times and Disneyland once.
  5. I took my driving test 4 times and have had a full, clean licence for over 20 years.
  6. I met my husband when he taught me to drive – no he was not my instructor for all 4 tests.  He taught me between tests 3 and 4.  I haven’t stopped learning to drive though, there’s always something to learn when you travel in a car with a driver trainer 😛
  7. I am very proud of the fact that I don’t have any fillings at the age of 42.  I hate going to the dentist in case he tells me I need one.
  8. I don’t like tea or coffee.
  9. I love chocolate and cakes.
  10. I live in York.
  11. My family moved a lot when I was growing up so I went to boarding school.  We lived in Australia, Bahrain, Malawi, Botswana, Hong Kong and Zimbabwe.

I’m sorry to say that the blogs I nominate for the Sunshine Award are going to be the same, plus a couple, as I nominated for the Liebster Award.  I say “plus a couple” because I found new blogs that I like, they make be laugh, chuckle or smile every time I read one of their posts.

My nominees (should they choose to accept) for the Sunshine Award are:

Jessie Cakes
Super Mom is Dead
Baby Gates Down
The Ellieverse
Deb’s World
Midsummer 365 Project
Lisa Buck
Capture You Photography
Damsel in a Dress

On my search for information about the Sunshine Award, I also found a number of pictures which are used, so pick one you like 🙂
