As always, I'm a bit late on posting about this. If it's not recovering from Swine Flu, then it's picking up poo....(don't worry Edie hasn't regressed I'm pleased to say - it's just the darn fox outside who's been keeping me awake all night and leaving me special little presents in the sandpit). Doesn't he know I've had just about enough of poo?
Anyhooooo...I finally have a moment and I'm going to celebrate because gurgle.com (a fantastic website full of parenting advice, pregnancy tips, and child-related info) have voted me as one of the Top 20 Mummy Bloggers in the UK and in doing so, they have made me happy. They have made me smile and feel all warm inside, and on a cold, windy day, that's no mean feat. So thankyou Gurgle. You're fab (and I love you even more because you think I'm hilarious). Did I ever say that the people I get on best with are the ones that laugh at my jokes?
And while we're on the subject of awards, I thought I'd take this opportunity to mention that I've also been given this one...
It's the MEME award and it has been bestowed upon me by the amazing 'I don't know how she does it' Amy at And 1 More means 4 and the stunningly beautiful, stylish and hilarious That Girl at Forty Not Out (you can thank me later sweetie).
Rules of the award need me to list 7 personality traits and pass it on to 7 other wonderful blogs. But because I like to change the rules, I'm going to make it 5. Shoot me now...
1 - I am ridiculously tidy (although not quite as tidy as my Mother). I just can't stand mess and I think I may have passed this on to my children because a few nights ago I hadn't tidied up the books in Renée's bedroom (not like me) and she said she wasn't able to sleep until they had been put away. Oops...poor love - she doesn't stand a chance!
2 - I am a stickler for bedtime (the children's, not mine). They're normally in bed by 6pm and anytime after 7 is a late one and I start getting edgy.
3 - Despite the above, I like to think that I'm laid back. Hmmm...well, if I think it, then that's all that matters!
4 - I try to make things as easy as possible for myself (I always take the easy option).
5 - I'm very open. I will tell anybody anything. My husband's not a great fan of this, but I always think it's easier that way - otherwise you're always trying to remember what you've told people and what you haven't. Too stressful.
And I'm passing this on to...
Brits in Bosnia - because there are no girlie friends for her in Bosnia and I want to put a smile on her face. And er...because she's also called Emily.
WAHM-BAM - because I've met her and she's wonderful.
Home Mum of 2 - because I like her a lot.
Who's The Mummy - because she has a new blog and it's great...and she once lived in Brighton and I know she wants to come back.
Notes From Inside My Head - because I met her too and she always makes me laugh.
So that's all for today. Feel free to pass the MEME award on ladies...
