You may have noticed a button/link that was up on my blog for a while.. you may have even clicked on it! It was a button asking if you would very kindly nominate my blog for a Brilliance in Blogging award. I didn't do much to advertise the fact I was hoping for nominations.. I'm still not quite comfortable asking for nominations, or drawing too much attention to myself with regards to awards (although I would love an award - who wouldn't!). I must just say I don't think there's anything wrong with tweeting and blogging about the fact you'd like to be nominated, if you don't ask, you don't get! I just didn't feel confident enough for that!
Anyway, I had the buttons up and that was it, I pretty much it. In fact, when Brit Mums announced that the nomination period was over, I took the buttons straight down. And I forgot about it all..
That was until this morning when I was sitting in the local park enjoying the sunshine and a child-free half hour. I checked Twitter on my phone and saw a tweet from my blogging buddy WordsWithWine asking if I'd seen the list of nominations that Brit Mums had announced this morning.. I hadn't of course. I didn't even realise they were being announced today!
I'm on there!!!!!!!
I've been nominated in the style category!
So... I want to thank all of you wonderful people who have clicked on that button, filled in the form and nominated me. I am so surprised, and bowled over really... Honestly, I'm so surprised, I truly did not expect even one nomination. Thank you for taking time out and nominating me, I really really appreciate it.

And of course... I'm going to ask now!! If you'd like to vote for me now in the Style category, I will kiss you.... and love you forever!! Voting closes on 30th April at 5pm.
I might have to scrape together some cash for a Brit Mums Live ticket now.....
I'm off to open the champers now... any excuse (I've been hoarding this bottle for two years...)
