Counting my blessings

Since I started blogging just over a year ago, I’ve come across lots of other mummy bloggers online through various things like the BritMums bloggers network and the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt.

Am I up for a BiB award?

As I only entered the world of blogging a few months ago, I was very surprised to have been given The Liebster Blog award by a fellow mummy blogger a few weeks ago. As if that wasn’t enough of an encouragement that people actually like to read my blog, I was stunned when I read earlier this week that I’d

Die liebste Überraschung des ‘Liebsten Blogs’ – Danke schön!

The loveliest surprise of the ‘Loveliest Blog’ – thank you! Being a total newbie to this blogging malarkey, I had no idea about blog awards – what they are and how they work. So when I was nominated by fellow mummy blogger LowImpactMama for the Liebster Blog award, I was very surprised, not just that someone had nominated me, but
