Inspiring blog Award

Well amongst wails of pain i was both surprised and delighted to receive a message from the lovely Marsha Lee nominating me the Inspiring Blog Award  (please follow her because she has a beautifully written blog that i love to follow and i know you will too)

I never thought of myself as inspiring, a little batty maybe but never really inspiring. I love to make people smile i’m a hugely positive person and if i can brighten someones day i will and if i can make them laugh even better. So thankyou Marsha both for the nomination and for ‘getting’ me enough to laugh along with my daily craziness xx  

As per the rules of nominations i have to:

1) Thank the lovely person who nominated me (see above)

2) share 7 things about yourself (okay here goes)

1)  I’m a history buff..i have a mad fascination with Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and the Titanic

2) I’m a hopeless romantic that still believes in fairy tales even if i pretend not to

3) I never believed i could write but now thanks to my best friend i’ve even started on a book but nobody has seen it except for him…maybe one day.

4) I was never educated beyond high school level and gained all my other knowledge through reading like crazy.

5) I love documentaries whether they be natural history, science, true life or history and recently sat glued to a programme about wormholes in space

6) Sometimes even i just need a hug

7) I’m a chocaholic

 3) Nominate 15 other blogs that i love or that inspire me. Again i dont have 15 although i’m gaining a few more as the weeks go by but the ones i love so far are…..     this blog pretty much speaks for itself, i was both awed and blown away by it from the minute i saw it and if any blog is inspiring then this one certainly is    another recent discovery but this lady is so positive and inspiring and if you havent discovered her yet please please take a look for i defy you not to be impressed and humbled  again so positive and so worthy of the title inspiring. one i definitely will keep following so please take a look  a beautiful and upbeat blog 

4) And lastly i need to let all these lovely people know that i am sending this award this way and to let them know their blogs touched me. So many great ones and i hope i discover many more as i go along.

I have discovered such a love of writing, such peace in being able to express myself upon a page and in a way to bring out a person who was buried away for a very long time. All i lacked was encouragement and someones faith in me that i had something to give and i never had that until one very special person came along. He inspired me and encouraged me and saw something in this crazy girl that nobody ever did and that i was too afraid to. His name is Jay and he is my best friend and my ‘person’ and i hope he knows how much i love and adore him, not just for what he does for me but just for being who he is. I hope one day he can look in the mirror and see the man that i see and i for one should not want to be without him. I love you JayJay xx


To my fellow writers and readers, keep the dream alive for you never know when you in turn will inspire someone else.  All it takes is a little paying forward and we could all be the writing generation of tomorrow. 

One Lovely blog Award


okay really unladylike shriek here for the very lovely Marsha Lee of  has awarded me the Lovely Blog award!! I’d like to thank a certain vampire, my kids, the cats, the fact my butt weighs me down so i have to do something while im sitting on it, my parents for making me dysfunctionally interesting and my crazy brain that has no cut off switch between it and my mouth 😀

Lastly and not required but a big thankyou to all those who suffer my ramblings in pained silence. keep reading and i shall keep blogging!!

inspiring blog?? Me??

I burble, i admit it.

I have a head full of inane drivel that climbs out of my ears and walks all over the page and half of the time i read my waffle and wonder if someone else wrote it. I had no idea i could write you see, im ordinary, I’m boring! I’m not famous nor do i live some fantastically intrepid lifestyle worthy of admiration and accolade but a very dear friend became my one man fan club and nudged and encouraged until i gave in and started a blog.  And initially this was what it was, i figured after a few entries he would admit i talk rubbish and let me take it down but i found i love doing it and more amazingly people wanted to read it! So this award i dedicate to my best friend Jay and the monster he created.

So today was pretty amazing, receiving a message from a fellow blogger (please all go follow her for she has a really awesome blog and a great writing style) saying i had been nominated for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award

All i can say is thankyou…both for sticking with and reading my brain burble and for nominating me!! As per the rules i..

1)Have to tell you some things about myself so here goes…..

I guess i’m a bit of a hippy at heart and as a younger mini me i wanted my parents to change my name to moonbeam

I had to watch the movie Gladiator 10 times before i saw the ending because i cried so hard i missed it

I have an 18 year old son with Aspergers Syndrome and i am a very firm advocate for the rights of special needs people particularly those with autism

When nobody is around i very badly wail along to my favourite songs whilst dancing around the room with a pillow

I love thunder storms and will happily sit outside watching a storm

I am afraid of dying alone
