MAD Blogging Awards Finalist Badge

MAD Blogging Awards Finalist Badge

It’s seems ages ago…and I guess it is now, thanks to the two weeks holiday I had immediately afterwards.

Sitting and drinking Pims on a Yacht isn’t something I want to forget, but as usually family life has got in the way!

On the 17th August, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow MAD bloggers on a beautiful yacht courtesy of Homeaway.co.uk at St Katherine’s Dock in London.

Absolute Pleasure was the name of the yacht and it sure was…both to be there and to meet some other blogger people finally. It’s so nice putting names to Twitter faces and blogs.

It was, quite simply, a breathtaking evening. The company was great; and it was so refreshing to talk to people who understood about blogging. I didn’t get one blank stare all evening.

The champagne and Pims flowed; though not for me as I had to get up to go on holiday VERY early the next day. A 4am start to Cornwall and the fizzy stuff do not mix….

So thanks to Fashion DetectiveRosie Scribble, Dear Beautiful Boy, Red Ted Art, Diary of a First Child, Mums gone to.., Jenography and everyone else I chatted to; and so sorry if I missed anyone off, it was a long time ago for a brain-frazzled mum!

Particular thanks go to Bizzy Mum who waited to board the yacht for me to arrive after I struggled to get there on time due to train cancellation chaos. It was so much more less daunting to have another newbie with me. The MAD Bogging Awards deserve to take a bow too; mainly for including me even though I have only been blogging for five minutes – well, since the end of January this year…

This had to be one of my favourite bits of my summer, even though the kids were no where to be seen *guiltyface.* But strangely I don’t holiday on Yachts that often…
