A Strange Case of Stage fright

Hello readers!

How are you?

I’ve been a bit quiet over here for several reasons, and its only today that I’ve realised what one of them is; stage fright.

You see as well as having my eldest daughters 6th birthday in the past few days, and the period from hell (I’m so glad to have you back endometriosis). I found out on Friday that I got through to the final stage of the Interior Blog Awards!!! 

Thrilled, shocked, dumbfounded were my knee jerk reactions, and its taken a short while to sink in.

I’m so grateful for all of you who read this blog and to those who voted and shared my voting page over the past month. You got me over the line!

Thank you ever so much, I’ve worked so hard on the this little corner of the web and its so exciting to know I’ve got so much support out there.

So I’m feeling a bit like I don’t know what to write now… It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about- believe me I’ve got loads of posts lined up; Its just that I was finding it difficult to know where to start. So today I thought to myself, start by being yourself, that is how I got here in the first place…

So I’m keeping it real round here and being honest about what is going through my mind…. {Something like Aaaarghh!}

All the blogs in my category are so good, you should go and check them out;

So now I’ve got an awards bash to go to on 28th October, and an outfit to think about…

    Congrats darling!! And as a fellow sufferer of endometriosis, grrrrrrl, I feel you. It’s a horrible thing to deal with and it puts me right out of commission as well. I hope you are feeling better now and I can’t wait to see you at the ceremony! Whoop! Time to put the glad rags on! 😉 xxx

    Let’s make a plan to meet up! I will be there too. I ran the half marathon on Sunday so had to put it all out of my head and now this week it is slowly dawning on me again! Huge congratulations to you. It was a lovely ‘do’ last year and I met some really lovely people – you this year!

      Ah yes Penny- I’d love that and well done on the running and the finalist status too!

    Huge congratulations are in order! I completely understand how daunting these things can be (not that I’ve ever made it that far in an awards!). Many people think us bloggers are really confident, extroverted people but it’s often not the case at all. Just go there and enjoy your time in the spotlight. You have earned it!
