Oh wow, what a week it has been for The Syders!
1. Winning a BIBS in the Lifestyle category has been totally and utterly amazing. I can't even begin to tell you how much this means to me and the rest of the Family. It is way up there with getting married & giving birth, I swear it feels that good.
I've had a few negative situations over the past couple of years, regarding my extended family that have left me reeling. It has really knocked my self confidence and I have had quite a few days when I have felt very sad. I have my Hubby who is very supportive, but my blog and the community have always been there as a shoulder to cry on too. Not having my own Mum to turn too on down days, I have all the lovely Mummy's in Blogesphere instead. So, Thankyou, from the bottom of my heart to every single one of you who have read my blog and left me lovely comments and Tweets over the past five years. I really can't Thank you all enough for voting for me and getting me as far as the judges. Not a lot will ever beat this feeling.
2. We had a lovely weekend away. The weather was a bit hit and miss but it didn't spoil our enjoyment of the pretty Norfolk landscape and I woke up really early (5am) on Saturday morning to a gorgeous sea view. There is something so magical about the sea and I always feel so calm and chilled when I'm near it.
3. Hubby surprised me with a new phone as a treat for winning my award. I'm so thrilled because my old iphone was ancient and I struggled to load the Internet. It was so slow. My new one is much faster and so much easier to keep up with my favourite blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram while I'm out and about. I love it.
Hows your week been?
