Sunshine Award

I've been awarded the lovely Sunshine Award by Mama J over on Mama J Hearts Chick Lit.

And with all the sunshine, (though not today) it feels rather good to be receiving this award. So thank you Mama J! It was a lovely surprise this morning.

The rules of the award are:

Write five things about yourself.

Include the award's logo in a post.

Nominate five other bloggers. 

Link to your nominees.

Link the person who nominated you. 

So here's my five facts about me:

  1. I used to work at Thorpe Park (from the age of 15 to 19) and it was one of the best, fun jobs I did  - ever! Even if it was picking up litter! lol! Met so many wonderful people and had so much fun. Loved it. Have never dropped litter since (not that I did anyway - my dad brought me up proper!).
  2. I hate celery.
  3. I've never watched the film Titanic with Kate Winslet and Leonardo  DiCaprio. I did actually catch a bit of it one time, and thought it looked pretty good. But never got to watch it all. 
  4. One thing I'd like to do before I 'die' is rally driving!
  5. I am a born worrier. I worry about everything. I think I even worry that I worry too much.

*drum roll* And my (five) nominations are:

They are all writers, either published or aspiring, who I try to keep up with - but sometimes fail miserably - sorry. They often comment on here, too, which I am always grateful for. (And they are not obliged to carry on this award, or if they've already been awarded it, then no need to post again!)

Thanks again, Mama J! You made my Friday.


  1. Congratulations on your award!

    And I hate celery too.

    1. I'll pretty much eat anything that's put in front of me, which is weird when I was such a fussy child. But I won't eat celery, especially not raw.

  2. Congratulations, and thank you for thinking of me.

    I will put up my acceptance on Wednesday - it's my 'me' day on my blog, and I have nothing to say... again!

    It's funny you're a worrier, but want to rally drive! That would worry me :-)

    1. Ha! I love driving. That doesn't worry me lol! Although, I might not be that good at rally driving... but I'd love to give it a go.

      Look forward to seeing it on your blog Wednesday :D Glad to be of assistance.

  3. I imagine you did enjoy your Thorpe Park job. What a great job for a teenager! And I can't believe you haven't watched Titanic! It's the only film I went to the cinema to watch twice.

    Congratulations on the award.

    1. One day I will watch Titanic. The bit I did see was actually good. I've come to appreciate Leonardo as an actor. I've seen him in some really good films. Blood Diamond for one, I can recommend.

      Thorpe Park - If I could go back in time, I wouldn't change a thing. I had a scream! Met some truly wonderful people, too.

  4. Hi Teresa,
    Thankyou for the nomination - I'm flattered.
    Hope all is well and that you are enjoying your peaceful time.
    We are decorating too - house smells of perfume de Dulux!

    1. Morton, I just wanted to spread the joy!

      It's weird how the house smells of fresh paint for so long, too. Enjoy the decorating! If that's possible.

  5. Thanks for the nomination too, sweetpea! xxxx
