I was seriously was not expecting that. Did you see who I was up against?! So this has now been a massive ego boost for me- they are WONDERFUL businesses.
It was my birthday yesterday, it was crap. Almost as bad as last year's when I was 9 months pregnant and practically sweating the baby out in a heatwave (he came 6 days later, thankyou for being early you beautiful boy).
So back to my crap 31st... Northleach currently has an ongoing epidemic of a crazy childhood virus, they are all dropping like flies! Rose had it a week ago, it started as a cough, a bit of snot- nothing to worry about, just a sniffle. Then the fever. then the RASH caused by the fever. Then the doctor... who forgot to look in her ears. Then the burst eardrum. Then the doctor, the continued pain and finally now the antibiotics. So my birthday was spent as day whateveritwas curled up watching a terrible kids programme silently counting down until it was socially acceptable to have an alcoholic beverage.
Then the wonderful, beautiful, amazing Fern from Smooth Start Nanny Services messaged to say I had won... followed by my Mother in law, a couple of friends (meanwhile I was pouring gin, going crazy watching some horrific Barbie film and still watching my emails for proof!).
later last night I saw the proof.
OHMYGODIBLOODYWON. GREAT birthday present. THANKYOU everyone who voted for me, thankyou so, so much. I love you. I really can’t say how amazing it is seeing the support from everybody. And now I get this nifty little badge to pop on my website...
