The Sunshine Award

on April 19, 2012

I have been nominated for the Sunshine Award by Frangipani Singaporenicum.  Thank you so much for that honour.

The Sunshine Award comes with a few rules:

Include the award’s logo in a post or on your blog

Answer some questions about yourself

Nominate some other fabulous bloggers

Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated

Share the love and link the person who nominated you!

I have used Frangipani’s questions

Love or money? My knee – jerk reaction is money of course! But then reality sets in and I realise it’s love.  I’d be lost without my husband, children, mother and brother.  I care for my demented F i L for love.  Losing money doesn’t bother me half as much as an emotional upset.  Love all the way.

Which is your most favorite book ever? Sons and Lovers by D H Lawrence.  I love the way he writes.  I love the evident emotion of the book and the family complexity.  It’s one of a tiny number of books I have read more than once (the others being Lady Chatterleys Lover (also by Lawerence), Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Wuthering Heights and Memoirs of a Geisha)

Which is the one television character that you simply adore?  Meredith Grey of Grey’s Anatomy.  She’s a gifted doctor, a flawed imperfect human being struggling through life, oh! and she has and Alzheimers story too.

What kind of music do you like? It’s easier to say that I don’t like R n B and Rap.  Apart from that anything goes

Which is your favorite genre of movies? (Comedy/Romance/Suspense/Action/Horror) I love a great RomCom

What do you do when you feel very sad or depressed? Up me medication ;op (I’m Bipolar so that’s a regular ocurrance)

And now for my nominees……… I have actually been nominated for two separate blogs so this is confusing for me but:

kimjoy24 : Her memory bank blog detailing her life with her father who suffered from Alzheimers is very touching

ragingtranquility: Reading his blog reminds me that I am not the only person in the world with a f***ed up family

Let’s Talk About Family: Another Carer struggling against the world ;op
