If the day didn't start off badly enough with a 3am invasion by Boy 1 after a nightmare, it rapidly deteriorated with a 5am rat dash. Yes - you read that right: a stinking rat in my bedroom! So, off I run to grab crazy cat 1 (crazy cat 2 is a little toothless, though only young. Ah, the joys of bad teeth and genetic inbreeding). So, cat is in bedroom hunting, searching, pretending to be a big scary predator. I am wide awake after four hours of sleep (not too bad in the scheme of things, though I do have to work today), figure, hey, I'll take advantage of this early rising to do some bloggity blog stuff and what greets me?
Two of my favourites shamelessly hussling for votes in the latest Blog This challenge! Well, I think, if it's good enough for Kellyansapansaand Moraggthen it's good enough for me. Having won this with my first ever foray into the comp I constantly yearn to again feel that euphoric adrenalin burst of winning, though knowing I do not have the numbers of some of the entrants daunts me somewhat.
So I am throwing this out to the laps of the blog Gods: if you wish to read my entry, or happened to miss it it isHERE, to go read the list and find the links to the other entrants (after all it is not a true competition unless you have read the others) and or vote then it is here. Poll is on the right hand side of the page, and please note - you can only vote ONCE!
I am not going to shamelessly grovel or beg, or offer gratuitous bribery or incentives. You make like mine, you may prefer another. But anyone can vote, so please do. Great way to find some new blogs for your list too. Oh, and the cutesy puppy dog eyes, mere coincidence...
But he DID vote for my blog...
I will add, was pretty damn happy to see I already had a couple of votes. I confess it is a recurring nightmare that I go check the list, and am the only one to have a big fat zero. Bit like the dream where you go to your kids' school in only your knickers and thongs. Oh, you don't have that one? Ah, okay then, moving on. I don't either. No really, just wanted to put you at ease. Honest. Oh, just bloody well go vote would you!
I am a Madmother of two wonderful boys, wife to an amazing and tolerant man, daughter to an incredible woman whom we lost Oct 2010.
I have 4 blogs. Meandering is rambling, general, whatever takes my fancy stuff. Woven Words is for my short stories and creative writing, Nimbobulan Dreamings is my kids story. And my latest is Hellion on Wheels: my Roller Derby journey. Feel free to look at or follow all 4 if you wish.
