BritMums BiBs – Family Category – ME!!

BiBs 2014

Can you believe it?

I can’t believe it?

Is it true or am I going to wake up anytime soon from the Best Dream Ever.

Allow me my moment if you per-lease as I, Mari’s World, made it through to the Top 6 Family blogs in the BritMums BiBs awards.


To say I am thrilled to bits is a bit of an understatement, to say I am ecstatic is closer to the truth. To say I am now a bit worried is spot on as the final decision is down to a judge and I am up against some spectacular names on the blogging circuit, each and every one of them damned good at what they do.

Here’s a snippet of what my brain has been doing ever since I heard the news…

I’m not going to win.

Stop being so negative!

Have you seen who’s on the list?

You’re just as good as them.

No I’m not, you’re just saying that because you know me.

Stop fishing for compliments it’s not becoming.


Then sort out your dreadful grammar and punctuation.


I said buy a book and get to grips with how to write the English language.



Why didn’t you tell me before?

You wouldn’t listen.

Get out! I have to listen to you, you’re in my head, All The Frigging Time.


{short pause}

Oh God, what can I do to win?

I’m not God sweetheart but you can start cleaning your act up a bit.

What do you mean?

Well clear out the trash?

What trash? I thought you liked my blog?

Don’t get paranoid, keep on doing what you’re doing and do it like really, really good.

I will, I’ll try and thank you for always being there.

Yeah yeah, I know, now go thank your readers and voters, they’re the ones who got you this far not me.

So I went out and bought myself a book on punctuation you’ll be glad to know as it did come to light that I write terribly long sentences are you breathing yet or still waiting for a full stop or a comma?

And breath.

Ready for another?

Please check out the other fantastic bloggers who I am up against and THANK you for voting for me and sticking with me these past four and half years, even through the trash and crap. At least I saved you the potty training … oh no I didn’t, did I?

    very funny! Mind you have you seen Jane Austen’s rough drafts? ZERO punctuation, just dashes mostly. Her editor did an amazing job. Yes it’s quite a whirlwind getting to the finals and must say I got quite emotional. I’ll never be able to watch the Oscars/Baftas again without having a teensy idea of what everyone must have gone through to be there! (Including the number of outfits I’ve tried on!) Big Congratulations and really looking forward to meeting you – YES! next Friday!! Aaaarrgh x
