Well ... you are not going to believe this but ... I only went and made it into the Final of the BiB Awards!!! I found out this afternoon when I was at work and couldn't resist a little dance! I am so thrilled to have made it to the top 6 blogs in this national competition.
If you are one of the people who nominated me or voted for me then ... THANK YOU!!!!!
I have been writing this blog for about 7 years now and it has been such an enjoyable thing to do. I have always loved writing, but it never ceases to amaze me that anyone actually wants to read what I write about, never mind vote me into the final of a writing competition!!
I am in the final six with some really fab blogs and I thought you might be interested in having a look at them. So ... here are the links to them. Do go and have a read, but please come back to me!!! There are some really interesting posts and and a variety of voices and I hope you enjoy having a peruse! For me its really interesting to visit other blogs which are similar to mine in content and yet, at the same time, very different.
I would love to win this award, but, to be honest, I am just looking forward to meeting some of my fellow bloggers and getting to the final 6 is more than I ever hoped for. Plus I do believe they have champagne at the awards served up by rather gorgeous men who are stripped to the waist and have more than their fair share of muscles ... Obviously this would hold no interest for me ... I am a married woman of a certain age after all ...
Anyhoo ... enough of this idle and slightly sexist chat ... here are the links to the other finalists in the Lifestyle category. Good luck everyone!!!
Now ... I need to sort out what to wear ... would sequins be too too much ...??
