You can always rely on your mother to bring you back down to earth with a bang.I called mine earlier whilst I was literally bouncing off the walls in excitement after discovering that I had been nominated for not one but two Mad Blog Awards; the conversation went like this…
Me: ‘Hi Mum’
Mum: ‘That you our Jane?’ – Please note I am my mother’s only daughter.
Me: ‘Yes Mum’
Mum: ‘I am watching Coro* can I call you later’ *Coronation Street*
Me: ‘I was just calling to tell you the blog is up for an award.’
Mum: ‘That’s nice.’
Me: ‘well two actually.’
Mum: ‘how many others are there then?’
Me: ‘well fourteen categories…’
Mum: ‘and you are in only two?’
Me: ‘um, well, yes.’
Me: ‘will you vote for me?’
Mum: ‘I’ll bring that computer on the weekend and we can look at it. I still can’t use it, bloody thing, don’t know why people don’t just call instead of using that facebook and that twitting thing.’
Mum: ‘Owt else?’
Head is now fully deflated and back to normal!
However I am still chuffed to bits to be up for an award and would love it if you enjoy reading my blog if you would take two minutes to vote for me. All you need to do it click on this link for the voting page and enter your name and email and my blog is nominated in the first category: Best Mad Blog About Family Life – just chose Northern Mum.
Also if you need some help with the other categories can I recommend you read Mothers Always Right – she is up for Best Baby Blog, she will make you giggle till you wee.
Love me, twin boy, twin girl, BB and he who helped create them, and the rapid hound!
