“Best Working Mum Blog 2011” WE won! WewonwewonweWON! #gurgles2011

winner gurgles awards

So the shoes, the dress and I (and the Husband) set off on the train to London...



It may have been a slightly sniggery journey (we don't get out much...)


We had the route carefully planned – Salisbury to Waterloo, Northern Line, 4 stops to Tottenham court road, walk to the Soho Hotel.

Except the Northern Line won’t be stopping at TCR till November.


So we had to change course to Oxford Circus, and walk down Oxford Street instead. My feet didn’t like me very much for that.

We arrived, we found the room, were greeted royally by the very lovely gurgle team, and entered the fray. Within five minutes of being in the room, I had selected a teeny tiny canapé from a proffered tray. Thought I would do the polite thing, not pop the whole (tiny) morsel in my mouth in one go, so bit it in half. Naturally, the pastry crumpled, the tomato refused to be bitten in half and I squirted the juice down the front of my dress. Yes, it was going to be one of THOSE nights.

There was an increasingly noisy amount of chatting going on (thats @daddacool and @iamwitwitwoo btw)

I only had one glass of wine honest. But these dastardly charming ninja-waiters, when they weren't handing round bite sized ice creams, just kept silently appearing and topping up the one glass. What's a girl to do?

Finally we were ushered into the screening room. It Was Time...


and the winner was... US!


*BEAM* (she was uber lovely, by the way. Real proper lovely.)


There MAY have been a bit of Showing Off on the train home...


Ta DAAAAAA. (note - clear glass awards are HARD to photograph...)

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.

  8. Thank you all – it felt very glamorous, actually. Except when I stood next to Myleene Klass. Then I felt more Jolly Giant-ish…
