    I am so excited that my blog Was this in the Plan??? was nominated for 2 categories – thank you so much, it’s a lonely old life parenting children with special needs and there’s very little reward from the outside world so to be nominated means a huge amount, it validates my work and makes me feel like it does matter….I have a big smile on my face to know I’m blogging up there with the big girls now! xxx
