I received a very exciting email this afternoon - the lovely folks at Britmums wrote to tell me that um, I've uh, been... shortlisted for a BIB award. I know! I can't believe it either!
For those not in the know, BIB stands for Brilliance in Blogging, and these prestigious awards are run by Britmums - the UK's biggest parent blogger network, with the help of generous sponsors.
So I'm writing to say a big big thank you to everyone who nominated me for the 'Inspire' category, because it's down to you that I'm in the final 16!
I'm up against some tough competition, with some amazing blogs, several of whom inspire me. I know you've already done an amazing thing by nominating me, but if you do feel you could vote for me now I'm in the shortlist, I'd be really grateful. Here's a link - just note that you can only vote once. And whilst you're there, you might also like to vote for The Adoption Social too - as um, yes, we've been shortlisted over there too for the 'Social' category. I bloody know! It's amazing!
I'm so proud to have even been nominated, and very grateful to you all. To be shortlisted is fantastic, and my feet haven't touched the ground since finding out...and after feeling particularly sorry for myself this morning, it's lovely to have a grin plastered on my face...I'm hoping it'll last for a good few weeks yet.
So that's it, if you want to vote, you have until 16th May to do so. Click the link below to do it.
Hence forth the campaign to keep me grinning like a loon begins...
