Blimey!

I've just received a comment that tells me I've been nominated for a MAD award in two categories - Most Inspirational Blogger and Best Photography.  Blimey.

I don't quite know what to say.  My gob has never been quite so smacked. I mean, MAD stands for 'Mum and Dad', and, not being one of them, I can't claim to write a parental blog but, you know, recognition is always very lovely indeed.  The awards also seem to be sponsored by some heavyweight organisations, such as John Lewis, so, once again, blimey.

I'm not too sure how this works but I think people have to go to The MADS 2010 page and I think you have to fill in a form.  I would obviously be terribly flattered if you felt you wanted to add your nomination of my little blog for either category but promise I won't send the boys round if you can't be arsed.  Probably.

Thanks, Sally, I am genuinely bowled over....

Blimey.

ah, the photography one will be from me! I forgot to read the bit about mum and dad and nominated who I wanted instead of who was eligible! Glad it registered though. I hope you win anyway.xxx

Oh MsBoo, you're too kind! I'm glad you like my little piccies though. I don't expect for one moment that I'll win either but it's nice to feel appreciated!!

Hurrah! Well done, that is a lovely thing to have happen.

Congrates, I've added my vote.

Ms Livesbythewoods - it really is very lovely, especially as this looks like a 'proper' award thing, know what I mean? There's loads of 'awards' that bloggers give to each other but this looks really proper, with an actual thing to win!

Kella - bless you, that's very kind.

Congrats! Have been reading much of your blog lately. Photos make such a difference. I feel I know your daily life (not in any wrong kind of way), your environment, your allotment, your garden and - not least - your BRIDGE.

Oooh, congratulations, I shall rush over and do whatever it is we are supposed to do.

Mrs Jones said...

Greenwich Mean Bitch - hello! And can I just say how much I love your name. I love taking photos and the good ones happen more by chance than anything although I like to think I have quite a good 'eye'. Also, all hail The Bridge! Makes all the difference in the summer.

Ms Alienne - I have Ms Boo to thank for one of the nominations (the photography one) but I don't think she nominated me for the inspirational one. I don't think I'll win but thank you for doing the form thing.
