Walking On Sunshine Blog Hop – Will there be sunny bunnies?

 1blog7Having a Walking On Sunshine post is ironic for me, I’m sensitive to light, especially sunshine and even more so today because I have a migraine (been building for days), so forgive any mistakes…all over the place.

When I saw Hugh’s blog hop party I just couldn’t narrow it down to one blogger.
I put my own information on so people might hop over here while, like me, they were deciding.

There are too many bloggers who spread sunshine (the good kind that doesn’t make me feel like I’m blind or with an axe slamming through my head), instead, the ones that make me smile, laugh, snort, giggle, feel happy, think, cry, and inspire me to write, etc.


One of the bloggers who makes me laugh everyday, one of my first Readers, who presses like and Retweets, but couldn’t make it to the party, the awesome Austin

My Awesome March Madness Spring Fling Blog Party guests include (in no order, just where I cut/pasted):

If I have left anyone out, I’m sorry, I’m going to blame the headache. If I did your blog twice, thank the headache.

Thank you kindly for coming to the party!
It’s ongoing to if you want to come and promote your blog, find other bloggers, please do, I’d always love to see you.1blog10

Now, enough of that, I’m starting to feel like Julie from The Love Boat (the rest of the party is on the Promenade Deck) and the only thing on my mind is a new romance with some chocolate which would probably make my migraine worse and the only course for adventure I want to set is for my bed (Baby, I love you!).

Thank you all!



Very me

  1. WOW!!! Sorry if that made your blasted migraine worse. There are so flippin’ many good blogs in the world. I wonder who did the very first one? Maybe I could off my lazy butt and find out. Get better, poor little one.


    1. It felt better to do something…turns out my bed is just making me dizzier.
      That’s an interesting thought, Yvonne, hmmm, I might look that up. 🙂
      Thank you for your kind words. 🙂


      1. Here’s what I just found:

        Well, majority considered that Justin Hall was the first blogger. In December, 2004,New York Times Magazine referred to him as “the founding father of personal blogging”.


  2. THANK YOU – I love sending out sunny rays of hope, fun, love, and definitely laughter. You just warmed me up with your own rays. I’m spending lots of time now checking out your other sun bunnies.


  3. Oh my, I get migraines from sunlight also – especially reflected off a car windshield or snow. Sometimes a shot of orange juice helps. I don’t know how you and Austin can turn out such entertaining posts so often. I feel like a real slug-brain blogger… Thanks so much for listing my blog on the blog hop party. I will check out all the listed blogs – it might take me a while! I hope you feel better soon. Jan


    1. The orange juice usually helps, maybe the Vitamin C, D…the water? Not today, it’s the other kind I get, the special, stubborn one. At least you understand, those who’ve never had them just look at you, like, it’s a headache, big deal, it’ll go away.
      I’m not in the same league with Austin, he’s a writing machine. We just need to keep our own pace, Jan…maybe it’s because of his Toga…or running…or supernatural friends…or all the above. 🙂
      Thank you for your kind words, they’re much appreciated. 🙂

    2. Donna, I’ve been plagued by migraines since childhood. They used to eventually go away by themselves, in a dark room, sleeping them off. They escalated ever upwards, and for the past 20 odd years, the ONLY thing that kills them is Imigran. I have no idea what it’s called in Canada, but it was the first sumatryptan drug for migraine. I get the 100mg tabs (the 50mg don’t touch them), the nasal sprays for the rare occasions I get a creeper that I can head off at the pass, and the dreaded auto-inject pen, which is very akin to being stabbed with a pointy-ended tree.

      The fibro makes my thigh muscles so painful that the injections make me cry like a girl (which is fine, because last time I looked, I wasn’t a man), and they are reserved for those spiteful attacks that lie in wait, then stamp all over my head. Nought to sixty in a second. I wake up with them in the middle of the night, too, by which time my brain is so literally fried that I don’t even know what’s wrong.

      Curiously, the wake-me-in-the-night ones result in me realising that my forehead is mysteriously pressed against the base of the headboard (how aptly named!) whilst my arse is up in the air and the rest of me is on all fours. But at least once I’ve realised I’m arse-up, head-down, the next coherent thought is “Migraaaaaaaaaiinnnnnne………drugs….where…..” I have to leave my meds visible in an open drawer next to the bed, because I literally can’t think at that point.

      I find big, flexible, physiotherapy ice-packs help, too. I realised that when I came to at 4 o’clock one morning and found my head upside down in the bathroom sink which I’d filled with icy water. Survival instinct is a wonderful thing! Sure, I look like a bag lady when we have to hold them in place with a lycra cycling snood (a gift from a cyclist friend), but appearances don’t register when my head is set to explode.

      I do hope you find a way of managing them. You’re so right, non-sufferers think a headache is a headache is a minor inconvenience. So not true.

      – I came by here to say thanks for adding me to the party, so thanks for that, I feel very honoured. Seriously. Thankyou.

      1. What, the Imigran spray? Bummer. Maybe generic sumatryptan might work instead – we all react differently to different products.

        Do you currently just put up and shut up til they pass? No-one should have to do that. Do you think ice-packs would help? Some people swear by heat, but for mine I cannot imagine anything worse. Except strong smells. And noise. And movement. X


      2. When it comes to migraines, whatever works…I can always tell when someone hasn’t even had one when they describe them as bad headaches, ummm, no, they’re not.
        No problem, you’re one of my peeps now so hang out and hang on! 😉

  4. Donna, sorry the blasted migraine’s got you down. You are ever amazing, your kindness to support blogger friends came through the pain into this creative, party post. Thank you for including me on your list! There are many new bloggers and sites for me to visit. Feel better soon… ((hugs)) Christine


  5. Wow, Donna, what a wonderful post you have written here. I’m so pleased you came over to my blog hop party as well, and what a wonderful list of bloggers you have given us here. I see I am on there as well, which I guess is because I left my details at your blog hop party. I hope now that our guests will mingle and get to know each other. Maybe you and me should go into business and start organising lots of these blog hop parties? 🙂

    Thank you so much for participating in my blog hop. It’s been have been a very busy three days, but so much fun, especially with both parties going on.

    Wishing you a great week ahead and see you very soon.
    Take care,


    1. Hugh, I’m glad you’ve been busy! It’s certainly a bigger undertaking than I expected, but I’m pleased so many bloggers found each other at the party, after the party, and going between our two parties. We’re a bunch of party animals. lol
      Thank you for having me at your party; it was definitely an honour having you at mine. 🙂
      Hope this week is good to you as well, Hugh, although I’ll probably see you on Twitter tomorrow for #MondayBlogs 🙂
      All the best. Big hugs, Donna xo

      1. Ah yes, I need to remember Monday Blogs.

        Although my blog party officially finished yesterday, I’ve still had a few guests turn up, so I’m letting it run on. I’ll certainly do another one and will be writing a post about it this week. Yes, a lot of hard work, but very well worth it.

        Thanks, Donna. Keep up the excellent work you do by bringing so many bloggers together and by spreading the blog love. You’re an absolute gem and I know that many bloggers on here really appreciate all the hard work you put in by hosting your blog party.


      2. #MondayBlogs @MondayBlogs – it’s fairly busy usually. 🙂

        Thank you for all your kind words, Hugh and your party! I’m glad it was a hit! 🙂

        Hope this day is good to you. 🙂

  6. You poor kid… I get migraines. With things at work the past couple of years, i get them *frequently*. I feel so bad on gloomy sunshine-less days — yet migraines and even headaches make sunshine or any light unbearable. So I completely understand. I can imagine your head, just from seeing the word “sunshine.”
    I realize it couldn’t have gone away yet, but wishing you well. Hope you feel happy and sassy fast. Hugs. ❤ 🙂


    1. I’m sorry to hear that, Teagan, they’re a dreadful thing. I used to get cluster ones and several kinds, but they’re fewer now, thankfully. 🙂
      It’s being kept at bay but scratching to get out, evil old thing. 😉
      Hope this day is good to you, Teagan Big hugs, Donna 🙂
