Well now is the time to Thank every single one of you who voted for me as I have made the Final shortlist of 10!!
I received an email along with everyone else in the Sainsbury’s blogging network on Tuesday stating the finalists had been chosen and didn’t think much else of it – it was only later that I realised I hadn’t actually checked to see who the finalists were. Well maybe sitting in Wimpy having lunch was not the best places to check this as I actually let out a squeal of delight when I saw my blog name on there – I’m sure everyone thought I was mad – as did Paul and Emmy until I explained.
It means a lot to me as this blog started as a hobby back in July last year so really is still a baby; however it has now become a great way of meeting people both through reading their comments on here and face to face at events which I attend. It is also great fun too – I have attended some amazing events which I definitely wouldn’t have been able to before this blog started and Emmy enjoys helping me too and has no problem being the star of the show.
Our prize for making the final 10 is a family ticket to join in with the Sainsbury’s Jubilee event in Hyde Park which we are really looking forward to. Emmy loves Thomas the Tank Engine and Angelina Ballerina so will have an amazing time, Paul is looking forward to seeing the War Horse and I am looking forward to seeing Jon Culshaw and a bit of Strictly Come Dancing. I’m just hoping the weather holds out.
You can see the Shortlist here. Good luck to the other 9 blogs – I’ve had a look at them all and they are all amazing. I don’t envy the judges job, I’m sure we would all love the winners prize of an iPad 3. I know I would, however there can only be one winner so Good Luck everyone!!
