MAD Blog Awards – DONE

Well I didn’t win a MAD BLOG AWARD I’m afraid at least not in the category I was nominated in (most entertaining).
That accolade went to the very deserving and very funny Ben @ Goodbye pert breasts. Check him out.

The perils of being a woman – Peril 3 Fake tan

Lets face it, there are so many variables with fake tan aren’t there. Us ladies for some reason seem to be unable to attend any event or in fact go anywhere that involves getting our legs out without first having some form of colour to disguise the fact that we have translucent veiny alien like skin.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know that there are some very brave and confident ladies who don’t give a fig about such stupidness and are more than happy to bare their white bits for the world to see.
To you ladies, I salute you.

I, however, am not of those brave band of woman who choose not to follow the crowd, who choose to step away from the mainstream norm. I am absolutely what is known as a sheep. I’ll be perfectly honest here, I like to be the same as everyone else, I don’t like to stand out, I like to blend in and be in the cool gang. Well I like to try anyway.

1 more sleep

So this is it, only 1 more sleep to go until I am getting on a plane with the Bear and heading back to Blighty allbeit temporarily.

I am very excited about going back and seeing everyone but am seriously stressing out about being on a plane for 24 hours, just me, the Bear and a pregnant belly. I have prepared somewhat, someone mentioned that they wrapped up little cheapo gifts to open at will on the journey when their little one was getting loud/bored/naughty. So I have well and truly taken that advice on board! He’s going to think it’s Christmas! I’m also aware that I am possibly sending out the wrong message i.e. giving him a pressie when he is naughty. Oh well we’ll deal with that one when we are not 25,000ft in the air encased in a tube of metal!

Behold my bribes!

Behold my bribes!

Packing is still not done but I am getting there slowly but surely, slowly being the operative word.

It is going to be a busy old time when we get back to the UK getting round to see as many people as possible in the relatively short time we are there, so I apologise in advance if we don’t get to see you.

I also, of course have the small matter of the 2013 MAD Blog Awards ceremony to go to. For those who don’t know, I have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Most Entertaining Blog category, and am going to an all singing all dancing awards ceremony on 20th September when I will finally find out how I did . . .Eeek Wish me luck!
MAD Blog Awards

Right I have to go, lots more organising to do before I finally get to my bed.

See you soon . . .

Homeward Bound

Now I know that some of you may know that I have been lucky enough to be shortlisted in a teeny tiny little thing called the MAD Blog Awards. If you didn’t know, I am not sure how it has escaped your attention given that I have been harping on about it for what seems like forever, here, here and here.

The awards ceremony is taking place on 20 September at the very swish Royal Garden Hotel in London (Kensington no less – get me!) and guess who’s flying back to the UK for the ceremony. . .
