The Sunshine Award

sunshine-awardI have been nominated for the Sunshine Award by the lovely Tara at http://lovefromtara.comΒ and I am so excited! It’s always such an honour to be nominated for an award by your peers πŸ™‚

For the sunshine award, I have to list 11 random facts about me, then answer 11 questions given to me by Tara and then I’m supposed to come up with 11 questions for my nominees. Tara didn’t set me any questions, and I must admit that I’m the world’s worst question-asker. I usually think of things like, “what shoe size are you?” or “what’s your favourite biscuit?” so I’ll simply nominate the people who truly deserve this award, and let them ask their nominees questions if they like πŸ™‚

11 random facts about me:
1. I’ve never watched E.T. and some people think that this is strange.
2. I love rollercoasters.
3. When I get the time (hahahahaha), I’d love to learn how to knit again. I could knit when I was 13 but I’ve totally forgotten now.
4. I’m very reluctant to wear anything other than ballet shoes which leads to wet feet in winter.
5. I once saw some stars fromΒ Emmerdale when I was working in retail and I was so starstruck that someone else had to serve them.
6. I can wear size 6, 7 or 8 shoes which makes it impossible for me to order them online.
7. One of the reasons I love winter is because I love to wear bright coloured tights πŸ™‚
8. When it comes to alcohol, I love Malibu and coke or bacardi and coke.
9. If I won the lottery, I’d buy a holiday home in Brighton.
10. My favourite squash is Vimto.
11. I did so badly in my Maths GCSE that I had to re-sit it, and then got a worse grade. Fail.

So, to the nominees!
I love finding new music on WordPress and music has the power to make my rainy day sunny again, so with that in mind, I’m going to nominate the music blogs I love to follow πŸ™‚
(WordPress won’t let me link the blogs so I’ll just have to give you the URLs!)

  1. Congrats Jenny! You really deserve this award, your words are like rays of sunshine girlfriend!! I love roller coasters too (my all time favorite is the old wooden Giant Dipper in Santa Cruz). πŸ™‚

    1. Awe thanks Celeste! I love your blog too πŸ˜€ There’s a rollercoaster in the UK called The Big One. I don’t like that ride as the safety restrainers don’t go over your shoulders, only your waist. I was genuinely terrified!

  2. Thanks for the nomination Jenny, it’s made my day! We can revel in both being awesome! Although to be honest I nearly decided not to accept when you said you’ve never seen ET!!!! πŸ˜‰

    1. I know, I know, I’m strange! There are so many films that Michael has made me watch over the years for my “filmic education” lol
      Thank you for the congrats! πŸ˜€
