Sunshine will follow the Rain

Life is keeping me super busy. I spent all day grading vintage jewellery  yesterday.

– Yay!

La Familia is starting a business.  We are part Russian. We stick together forever. Till death do us part -aaaaargh! 😀


 Feeling silly and giddy.

I always do when  I have a load on. I think its a  self-defence mechanism .

I’ve been super busy looking at online websites and getting my business mind grooving,

My Bella Bee has been having nightmares about monsters for the past 4 nights.

Super- uber,  bad nightmares.


Smelly boys   have been telling my daughter that  monsters are going to come to her bed at night.

 ( sung in Phoebes voice ‘smelly cats’ from Friends’)

‘Smelly boys smelly boys,

news alert, your parents dont love you!

Smell boys smelly boys.

You have  tiny pricks  

Smelly boys ,smelly boys.

You make me sick.’

Cramming in swotting up and getting an Edu Kash un 😉

Go Daisy! Go, Daisy, I’ve got this. I am successful in everything I do’ – I am my own personal mascot.

Today the weather is dismal .


So, it is the perfect time to accept the Sunshine Bloggers award and spread some light and love to all those who inspire me, support me, blow me away – I’m not going to nominate you all ‘cos I like to be a bit more intimate and personal but this is for all of you – I give you full permission to take some sunshine and accept the award if you want. Your name doesn’t have to be on this list!



4therace- MY MIND PROJECTED ONTO THE SCREEN  – want to know information on film, society, and Television. Check this Blog out.

Here is a link to his ABOUT (this dude is 17 years old and has more perspective than a lot of people I have engaged with)


  •  The Key word  here is Sunshine. So which blogs spread a light on your life, in moments when it rains ,pours and it is windy and your umbrella turns into a crow and flies out of your hand?

  • Answer 11 questions from who nominate you and answer what you feel comfortable answering.

  • Nominate 11 Bloggers

  • Ask 11 Questions off your own



1. What are the 5 best films of the decade thus far (so that’s 2010-2016)?

I’m going by what I have seen ( state the obvious why don’t I?!)


Absolutely Fabulous – the movie!


The Get down ( it is a series but I am hooked. My inner teen has a TINY crush on the wordsmith.


(through gritted teeth) I enjoyed watching  ‘Suicide Squad’– in my defence, I think it was the soundtrack that swayed me 😀


The conjuring two.  – creepy.


  1. Lucy – what a find!


2.Favourite French Film? If you don’t have one, then favorite foreign language film?


It has to be ‘La vie en Rose’ I love Edith Piaf. Her music brings me to tears.

3. If you could only watch 5 films for the rest of your life, what would they be?


Bell Vue rendezvous


Alice in Wonderland ( 1950’s Disney version)


Water for Elephants


Natural Born Killers


Pulp Fiction

4.What do you have to say about modern cinema?

I’m not really a film connoisseur.  I do like my indie/independent films. I like going to the cinema. – Does that count?  The cinema experience is fun – warm popcorn, surround sound.

5. Anime. Yes or No? Why?

I’ve watched a few bits and bobs  when my husband watches them .I think they are unique, I guess I should give it a proper watch and then make a decision. If I did that I would be condoning my husbands taste in a genre – ha ha!

6. What is a television show that you would suggest to anyone?

Anyone? I was going to shout ‘American Horror story’ but not everyone is into so-called horror. I’ve just finished watching season five of ‘Once upon a time’ – it’s really opened my imagination and helped generate my writing.

7.What  do you admire most about the WordPress blogosphere?

The people. The community- without it I don’t think I would still be Blogging.

8.What inspired you to write your blog?

WOW!  erm… nobody in particular. I just set a goal and said  I am going to write a Blog and I did it and that’s it.  I  have found inspirational bloggers on here that have kept me going. I love a challenge.

9.What would you like to see your blog evolve into (if you want it to evolve)?

I want to link more of my real life endeavors with my Blog -one would be my volunteering. I would like to be able to help people help themselves with certain programmes I have done and trained on. I am in two minds about sharing my vintage jewellery business on here. I may have a link on this Blog, in the future, to my online shop. I don’t want this Blog to be a marketing merchandise blog.

10. What is a blog here on WordPress that you would recommend to anyone and why?

I would have to say Jason from Harsh reality.  He is successful. He has writing talent. He uses his blog as a platform to help promote new writers with their books. He is funny. He is not afraid to put his opinion out there.

11. What advice would you give to someone who doesn’t know what they want to do in the future?

Blog wise? mmm, I would say start with what is going on in your life. That is how I started my Blog. My blogs content evolves with what I do in my Life. I like that about my Blog. I like to see it evolving. I don’t like stagnation. I like movement. I like to dance and keep on the go.


Drum roll, please.

  1. Hi Daisy, Thanks so much for the nomination. You probably know from my poetry that I’m HFA (Homo autistica, LOL) and not good in social situations. I find myself eager to answer your questions but worried about finding 11 people to nominate. But I didn’t make my blog award-free because I feel I should try to meet the challenge if I was ever awarded. So just let me say that I will be thinking on this and will make the attempt to nominate. I’m a numerologist and love the idea of 11 questions, 11 nominations and 11 answers. 11 is a highly karmic number and represents the search for truth! Thanks again and just want to say that you are my idea of a sunshine-y person and definitely deserve this award! xo Clarissa
