Well something pretty awesome happened on Friday night…
I won an award. More specifically, I won a Canon Media Award for Best Online Commentary/Blog for The Girls Guide. This is a very big deal to me because I devoted a lot of time and headspace to that blog for three years, and I haven’t won anything since I was twelve, so yeah, a big deal for sure.
There wasn’t an opportunity to do a little thank you speech at the awards because they rattle through the many categories at an incredible pace, but if I had been able to step up to the mic I would have thanked you lot. I’m not sure that many ex-Girls Guide readers are now visiting this blog, but for those of you who have been following my ramblings from there to here… THANK YOU.
I know I haven’t blogged much lately, but that’s because things have been going on. Our house is in disarray because we are doing up the bedrooms. All the furniture from our room and the spare room is littered around the house. We’re sleeping in the lounge (which is as close as I’ll ever get to being allowed a telly in the bedroom) and everything is all topsy turvy. It will be a few weeks before we can move back into our bedroom, and I think when that happens I will likely cuddle the new carpet and kiss the new walls.
Work has also been busy, but is now looking more settled.
So – without making any rash promises – I should be popping in here more often from now on.
How are you?
