Remember me?
February 23, 2009

I am feeling very, very guilty. It has been 3 months since my last post and so much has happened. I have completed a TEFL course, split up with my boyfriend (then got back with him again), had a dodgy 8o’s haircut courtesy of the local supermarket hair salon and tried my hand at willy washing. Calm down girls (and some boys), it is not as exciting as it sounds. My son had an operation ‘down there’ and I had the delightful task of keeping his little sausage infection free for 10 days. Now that I have made my excuses (and you have forgiven me, I hope?), it’s time to get down to business.  


Firstly, I would like to thank the multi-talented Fiona from ‘Off the Wall’ (Fabby DIY decor for kids’ rooms), for giving me the ‘Marie Antoinette’ blog award for “real people” with a “real blog.” I am real and so is my blog, so I guess I deserve it – though I do feel a bit guilty accepting it having been away for so long! As with all awards, the rules dictate that I nominate another worthy blogger. So without further ado, the winner is…Frances of ‘France and the Unknown.’ She has a wonderful blog, so go check it out!

I have also just noticed that I have been included in ‘A Modern Mother’s’ list of ‘The Best British Mummy Bloggers 2008.’ WOW. I am very flattered. Thank you. I will come and tell you my reasons for blogging (if it is not too late?) as soon as I have caught up with all my favourite blogs. It’s great to be back!

A big thank you to Confused Take That Fan, 30 (one of my favourite bloggers) for this delightful award. It is lovely to be appreciated and to know that there are people out there reading what you write.

As with all awards there are certain rules to follow:
1. Link to the giver
2. Nominate up to seven other fab blogs and link to them
3. Leave messages announcing their rise to greatness.

I am not sure who has, or hasn’t had this award, so if this is coming to you for the 2nd/3rd time, you know you deserve it!

Firstly, a very big thank you to Hadriana’s Treasures for sharing the luuuurve – it is my first award, so I will treasure it dearly. Not one to be greedy (except with a box of Roses), I would like to pass this award on to two other girlies who could also do with a bit of extra love at the moment: Dulwich Divorcee, who is currently missing her little treasures and the lovely Luna from Bubble and Squeak, who has had a bit of a tough time of late deschooling hers.


Feel the love!
