Hi Everyone

I am pleased to announce that I have been awarded the Shine On award twice in recent weeks. One from Oasien at http://oasien.wordpress.com and the other is from Alastair at http://kattermonran.com

As always, with any award, there are rules to follow, so here they are:

1.) Show appreciation of the blogger/s who nominated you and link back to them in your post.  Done.

2.) Add the award logo to your blog. Done.

3.) Share 7 things about yourself.

  1. I love films with robots in them.
  2. If I have the choice to see a movie in 2D or 3D, I always choose 3D, I love it.
  3. I prefer a MAC to a PC and I recently upgraded my Mac operating system to Mountain Lion.
  4. For those of you who missed a blog post, I am going to St James’s Palace on the 15th of July, to celebrate CSV’s 50th Anniversary. (Community Service Volunteers.) In the presence of Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
  5. I am a Health Buddy for CSV. My job is to spread health messages about taboo topics, encouraging people to go for screening and work towards the 5 Ways To Wellbeing.
  6. I am also a member of BID (Be Involved Devon) that is part of CVS (Community Volunteers Services.) We have meetings relating to Mental Health organisations and the NHS.
  7. I have written 2 articles for the BID newsletter that featured on the 5 Ways To Wellbeing page.

5.) Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know

6.) Optional questions – Here are my 7.

  1. Do you prefer whipped cream or clotted cream?

      1. It’s been okay, it’s manageable these past few weeks. How’s yours? Good I hope. You have too many things to look forward to and celebrate this next few weeks for the fibro to take over now.


      2. I just try to ignore the leg pain most of the time. If I think about it, it hurts but if i don’t think about it, it’s in the background. I even risked going clubbing the other day, it felt fantastic to dance and do something normal – My legs hurt but my stomach was a lot worse, I didn’t know how I was going to get through work the next day – Or should I say that day as I didn’t leave the club until 2.30am and didn’t go to bed until 3.30am and had to get up at 7.40am. I did it, I survived and had the following two days off to help with my recovery. I used to do dance classes years ago and miss dancing so much. I am glad yours has been manageable. Yes, I have much to celebrate and I am very thankful and honoured, especially to be going to St James’s Palace on the 15th of July, I hope I get to say hello to the Queen.


      1. A goddess is so much different to the Snickers TV ad of Joan Collins in the men’s changing room. In that case, as you are a goddess ….. a grape for you ?? 😀
