What a week it’s been: back to school, an interview on @bbcradiodevon and my Brilliance in Blogging Award has arrived from @britmums! Thanks so much to everyone who supported me in getting to this point – you rock! 🏆 Now, has anyone got any tips for selfies with a glass award? 😂 I’m not sure I’d win any points for this!! 📸 I’m celebrating tonight and tomorrow by chilling with the girls as next week is getting underway quickly. On Sunday I’ll be hopping on a train to London Town for @wtmlondon. Imagine the biggest holiday exhibition you can and then triple it – that’s pretty much the size of it. The three day event takes over the whole @excellondon. I’m there for day one with the aim of meeting up with destinations and holiday companies to chat about what they have to offer families. ✈️ If there’s somewhere you’d like to know more about or are thinking of visiting in 2019 comment below and I’ll try to get you the low down! 👙 🌞 🍹 🛳 #wtmldn #wtm2018 #Britmums #bibs2018 #snaphappybritmums #bloggingaward #ukftb #ftb100 #familytravelblog #travelblog #familytravel #wearetravelmums #WTMLondon #WorldTravelMarket #DevonBlogger #UKBlogger #Fridayvibes #happyweekend #fridaymood #travelblogger

🏆 I arrived home from work last night to a surprise delivery 📦….I’m now the extremely proud owner of my very own Brilliance in Blogging award from @britmums, as much as I’d like to take the credit for this sparkly beast, apart from my frequent bathroom posts and misguided use of screen time when I should be tackling laundry, this award wouldn’t of come about if it wasn’t for the family that I immerse myself in everyday & our followers that share our adventures through childhood with love and disfunction in tow…the community that has built up around the ‘Family Days Tried & Tested’ social media platforms makes me proud every single day. Thank you to everyone who shouted about us….there is no lavish award ceremony for the BiBs this year, but if you know us then you’ll be right to expect the unexpected as we embark on doing our very own gig, FD style, outside the box 😉😉🤔🤗🤩👁👁….it’s a family thing… this space. #bibs2018 #britmums #bloggingaward #award #winners

Look what arrived – no, it's not my very own Phantom Zone from Superman, but instead is my @britmums Brilliance In Blogging Awards (BIBs) trophy! . As you may or may not know, a few weeks ago I was named the winner in the Family & Lifestyle category of the BIBs. Since then, I've been waiting to be told that there's been a mistake of epic 'Oscars 2017' proportions. . However, now that I have the physical award in my hands, that makes it officially mine and I'm not sending it back even if it is a mistake (and even if they offer to pay for p&p as it's quite heavy!). . So, thanks again to everyone who voted and for those that read my ramblings on the blog / social media – it's much appreciated! . P.S. Have you ever tried taking a photo with a bit of engraved glass?! It's bloody difficult, I tell ya.

So my Readers Choice award arrived this week and I decided I was going to show you guys with a nice little boomerang using fancy rose gold glitter ✨ In my head…this idea was amazing! In reality? It just looks like I’ve gone a bit mad and am chucking a fistful of sand in the air…😆 I wrote a post last night about winning this award and my time as a blogger so far…I wrote it because I wanted to share the fact that I don’t have an impressive educational background, a resume of glittering career achievements or a load of business contacts… I left school with 2 GCSEs, and worked in Primark, on the checkout in Kwik Save, and in an array of nurseries and call centres after that. I started this blog on a whim when I was pregnant and it turned into a business, and – I know money is a bit taboo to talk about and I’m not saying this to brag but it earns me more money per year than I’ve ever earned before. Maybe not a huge sum to a lot of people but certainly more than I ever thought I’d make. And I wanted to share that because I want other people to know that you can be successful without amazing educations and you can find unusual pathways to achieve your goals. It’s never too late. As Disney said…”all it takes is faith and trust!” #RoseGoldGlitterIsABitchToHooverUp #NotAnInstaGlammer
