A couple of months ago, the lovely Sarah at Life As Always nominated me for the Sunshine Award! It really made my day being chosen by Sarah and it put a big smile on my face for the rest of the day. I'm sorry that it has taken me a while to prepare the post but life has been very busy lately.
Sarah always makes me smile with her lovely, cheery posts. She is always busy on her adventures having lots of fun and is now pregnant, which is so exciting. Pop over and see Sarah and read what she has been up to lately.

4. Nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award. Link the nominees to your post and notify them.
What's the nicest thing someone else has done for you?
It has to be when Steve booked us a holiday to Crete and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said YES! It was such a special evening that I will never forget. Sitting in a restaurant overlooking the sea; perfect!
What is one thing you always wanted as a kid, but never got?
I had a massive love for an Eighties band called Spandau Ballet and I desperately wanted to see them. However, every time I tried to get tickets to see them they would all be sold out! Then the news came out that they were splitting up and I was devastated. After a few weeks of mourning, I resigned myself to the fact I would never see them! Well, a few years ago they decided to get back together for a reunion tour and I got the tickets I had wanted all those years ago. I actually got to see them in two venues and they were better than I could have imagined.
What is your most impressive skill?
Okay, this was a tough one for me as I'm not good at blowing my own trumpet! I think my skills come into play when I'm at work. I work with primary school children and I love being a part of their nurturing.
What would you refuse to do for a million dollars?
I would never EVER part with my Disney film collection. I still have the videos even though we only watch DVD's but I can't part with them! As I'm writing this I'm sitting watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
If you were home on a rainy Sunday afternoon, what movie would you like to watch on TV?
Apart from any Disney movies, it would have to be Roman Holiday. I absolutely adore this film. Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck are just wonderful together and what a gorgeous place to be.
If fat, calories, cholesterol, etc. were not an issue, what two foods would you feast on?
It would have to be Haribo sweets, my mouth is watering as I'm writing this and the sweet yumminess of a Greek baklava. Delicious!
Who is the most famous person you have met?
I haven't actually met anyone famous but I did once go with a group of children to the local park to see Prince Edward and I was stood a few feet from him. I have walked past minor TV personalities and pop stars over the years but I can easily tell you who I would love to meet; the lovely Leonardo DiCaprio!
What is the greatest pain you have ever suffered?
That would have to be when I got appendicitis at the age of ten. I still remember the pain I was in until I had it removed. Apart from the birth of my girls, that is the only time I have been in hospital and I want to keep it that way!
If you could be a member of any TV-sitcom family, which would it be?
Definitely Everybody Loves Raymond. There would certainly never be a dull moment in that household. I adore Amy, she is so bubbly and kind. Even when I watch it now, it never fails to make me belly laugh.
How do you like to relax?
My number one way to relax is cooking and baking, I find it so therapeutic! I also love to walk, take long hot baths and spend time with my family.
