Rays of Sunshine!

Thankyou Nanny Maryanne for your nomination! I have used my daughters afternoon nap to prepare the post to the highest standard as I could not find a sunshine blogger pic anywhere I chose my own! It really was unexpected in response to a blog on February Frosts, however I am grateful you appreciated it! You can Find her at URL: https://nannymaryanne.com/contact/

1-Why did you begin blogging?

I wanted to test out old computer skills and built my website, so I decided to share what I have learnt so, I started a blog to share my knowledge and skills.

2- What do you think is most important in life?

To make the most of everything  you have, to pass on the elements of life which matter! Skills, knowledge, resourcing and planning are key to reducing stress and ensuring a balance which can often make you feel positive and satisfied without costing a fortune. This is why I enjoy sharing my hobbies with my children, I hope to give them life skills allowing them to thrive whatever their situation.

3- Can you think of a time you laughed till your stomach was sore? What was it?

Laughing?  I have learnt to laugh inside as children need no encouragement! My toddler is hilarious but I spend too much time preventing successful mischief…to laugh would be reinforcing negative behaviour!

4- Can you name your first childhood memory, that you remember?

Probably saying I was going to be Prime Minister while crayoning with my nan!

5- What was the best practical joke that you played on someone or that they played on you?

Teaching my youngest son to stand at the door tapping his wrist whether my husband was late or not! I laughed a lot! Probably your recommendation!

6- What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?

Looking back, Take That were uncoordinated but cool! Even I admit they are still great! Everything seems to have got much cooler! However if I find value in something it is valued forever. I have always found practical skills cool! Its taken a while for a youthful investment to bring a real revival.

7- What about who you are attracted to appeals you the most?

My husband is calm, supportive between the sarcasm and can take on the demands of a large family! He reminds me of a mature version of aqua man, what’s not to like!

8- What has been your most embarrassing memory in your life so far?

One of my shoes falling to pieces! My mother had given me them as she loves to shop, something I do for necessity only, I was between classes and they fell to pieces…actually I laughed hysterically as I wandered around in my socks!

9- What’s the most annoying noise?

Silence! I am just not used to it!

10- If money and practicality weren’t a problem, what would be the most interesting way to get around town?

I like the idea of a converted double-decker bus, with a family of 8 we need the space! I would go a bit further than town if money was no object though!
