MAD Blog Awards Finalists. Wot so Funee about that?

By the Bug…

My mum is awesome. I tell her this most days, and I usually get a hug; on occasion a declaration like this might win me a Squares bar instead of a tangerine for my school snack. Today though, she hit me with a confusing one. Instead of a hug, she sat me down with a postcard and a pen, and asked me to write down why I thought so. Here’s what I wrote:

Reasons why my mum is awesome

Similarly, my sister wrote this 3 years ago in school, tasked with a literacy challenge on the theme of Mother’s Day:

My mum is special because: She makes poodings.”

Now clearly we think she is awesome – she’s our mum. But as it turns out, some of you think she’s awesome too. Because last night came the news that we are amongst the MAD Blog Awards Finalists! It was the perfect end to a rather crazy day, which had seen Mummy run 6 miles for Sport Relief and Team Honk, then attend the very emotional Mum of the Year Awards, and finally plonk down on the sofa to a timeline full of congratulatory tweets. She went to bed a bit giddy, and for once I don’t think it was the gin…

I can’t tell you what it would mean to her to win the Best Schooldays Blog award, but to do that she needs votes. You can vote for all the MAD Blog Awards Finalists categories here – you don’t have to vote in every category, but if you feel like a good read, do check out some of the other blogs in the finals – there is some amazing writing there.

And I’ll leave you with the thing that prompted this blog in the first place – my sister’s Mother’s Day shopping list, 2010. Because behind every good blogger there are a couple of kids having their Schooldays splashed all over the internet… πŸ˜‰

Will you vote for her because she is kind and polit? Or because she makes poodings? Or for some other entirely different reason? πŸ˜€

Congratulations to all the MAD Blog Awards Finalists. Can’t wait to party with you!

Wot So Funee?

    • Yep, it’s all about the party. It would be lovely to win, but just to be there with everyone is still such a treat! Congrats to you too x And take a look at Wish Want Wear – I’ve hired my dress from them the last 2 years running and they’ve been so beautiful.

  3. Hey something went wrong when I added the link. Kindly delete 1 and 2. Sorry about that. Have a great day!

    Congrats on making into final. That’s awesome!

  4. Once again congratulations. So happy for you. That’s fantastic two years in a row. So glad we will be there together! Although we have BritMums first and Blog on in Manchester too right. Haha Lots of seeing each other. I love your mother’s day list here. So cute. Thanks again for hosting wots so funee!

  5. Shame I could not join you on the day, but after swimming 100 lengths for #teamhonkrelay on Saturday I was a bit sore… Good luck with the niminations, you know you have my support πŸ˜‰

  6. Awww, well done you! I am so glad we’ll both be there again. I did have a heart stopping moment when I checked the list and didn’t spot Science Sparks. xxx

  7. What a fab Team Honk achievement, well done! As for the MADS, very well deserved and I’m not at all surprised you’re a finalist again, WAHOO! Hopefully I’ll actually be able to make it to join in with the party too this year.

  8. Congratulations!!! Sounds as though it was an amazing day. And was it politeness that Bug listed as your most endearing quality?? V cute.

  9. Congratulations on making the MAD finals, so pleased for you. Also, 6 miles for Sport Relief? Wow! The word ‘superwoman’ springs to mind πŸ™‚

  10. You have a super awesome Mummy, looking all superheroesque there in her Sports Relief/Team Honk gear – I have voted – do you think that gets me a pooding πŸ˜‰ xx

  11. Congrats and loads of luck in the awards – although you’ve already achieved so much – congrats on your Team Honk activities πŸ™‚

    • It’s a very worthy list Morgana – I honestly think it’s one of the hardest categories to narrow down to a winner this time, so we can all be proud to even be in the finals. See you in September!
