*****STOP PRESS******

Nominations have been updated….see end of this post for details….yipeee! …..ends

I’m having an amazing week, one of those where you start peering into bushes to make sure that Jeremy Beadle, or Harry Hill as it now seems to be, isn’t secretly filming the  moment when someone jumps out and yells “sucker”… and on April Fool’s Day I’ll be especially suss.

Things seem to be very, very good.  My work is going really well, I’m loving it and things are motoring.  We may not have to sell our house after all, well not for another 12 months anyway, which is SUCH good news….and, would you believe it?  I’ve been nominated for an award!

You can find out all about The Mads 2010 here. Basically for those who are skim reading they’re awards for blogs…simples.  A lot of people have been talking about them lately and getting quite excited.  Apart from having a gorgeous logo, they also come with some fantastic sponsored prizes and there are some fabulous blogs already nominated.

Apparently I’ve received nominations for Blogger of the Year and Most Inspirational Blogger…hilarious I know, but I’m really touched that someone thought enough of my ramblings to do that.  As for what Heather wrote about me here, well…I’m completely blown away, especially as she’s a blogger who I love, and have massive respect for and who, despite her protestations, I nominated because she does so much for the blogging community.

So, this is not a ‘please vote for me’ post….although Christ alive, if you want to feel free….did I mention those prizes?! This is a ‘go and have a look’ post.  If you blog you may find out that you’ve already been nominated, the (ever changing) list is here, and if you enjoy reading blogs then do go and vote for someone and let them know.  I’ve only been doing this in earnest since January and I know I’m not going to win anything but (genuinely) just to be nominated is an amazing boost, so thank you to Heather and anyone else who may have nominated me and a big hands up to Josie, Ellie and Sally….you’re doing a fantastic job!

*I’ve just found out that I’ve also been nominated in the Best New Blog category and Best Blog Writer….thanks again to whoever has nominated me x

Well, this is all a bit MAD isn’t it?

    Hear hear! It’s all very marvellous and exciting. I for one will be nominating you cos you are very inspirational and supportive and when I get round to doing the nominating thing my finger will have problems deciding which category to put you in!
    I have been nominated too…I know, can you BELIEVE it! I know I will not win and that is fine but being nominated has given me such a boost…tis a wonderful thing!

    I think that some people may have nominated you prior to reading the NFL post but others need a nudge in the right direction and Heather’s post did exactly that 😀 Nothing short of what you deserve.

    I haven’t done a MADs post yet… I’m saving mine until people have forgotten about it all 😉 Crafty, or what!!
