I Won The Golden Ticket

A few weeks ago the MAD Blog Awards offered up 10 Golden Tickets for people to attend the MAD Blog Awards 2013, I had been up for nomination but did not make the shortlist, but so many of my truly amazing friends did and of course I would love to see them all get recognised for their efforts.

So I entered this picture, you had to show a picture which showed something MAD, of course shaving my head last year a great deal of people thought was mad.

I had not thought there was any chance of actually winning but hey ho it was 3 minutes of my time.

Fast forward to Friday 13th September, my lucky day, I was super busy all day so did not get online, I finally had 5 minutes at 3pm so I checked twitter and had several messages congratulating me and saying they were excited to see me.

I was very confused and then Lucy directed me to the link that showed I was a Golden Ticket Winner and the following Friday would be attending the MAD Blog Awards and that is what I did.

A huge thanks to all that made the Awards happen, it was a lovely evening, I really did enjoy some ME time, secondly thanks to Katie & Mr E for lending me the use of their hotel room to get ready and making a great start to my night, HUGE thanks to Lucy and Mr R for not only making me laugh all evening, but to Mr R for insisting I did not get a Taxi to my Brothers and he drove me there even though very sleepy. To Kirsty and Clara for making me laugh several times, especially with boxers (lol) and lastly to my truly awesome Husband, who even though needing ME time himself, looked after our babies, got very little sleep and chose me a lovely dress.

Congrats to all that won, to Jennie for as always being a true inspiration and to Fiona (Coombe Mill) for remembering a very important lady.

    Haha. I could have sworn I only danced on my own like that for a minute. Clearly I was hogging the dance floor….. but I do love that song! Thanks for a lovely night my dear, so glad you got to come, and it was our pleasure to drop you home again after, you gave me someone to natter to as Mr R wasn’t up so much chatting. x
