Best Personal Blog 2016 – Thank You.


We had a late night dash to the on-call doctor last night with Freya – don’t worry she’s ok.

Miraculously, as soon as I mentioned the word “doctor” she was full of life – a far cry from the child with a temperature of 40+, who was wailing that she would “be ill for ever and ever” and complaining of a very sore throat and tummy ache.

After a short wait, a very jolly doctor examined her (with a fist bump or a high five after every check) and declared it was nothing serious, thank goodness.

We went home to bed but she was up pretty much every half an hour from then on (and is currently asleep on the sofa beside me, which is unheard of, even after a disturbed night, so I know she’s still not quite right).

Thank you to whoever nominated me and then everyone who took the time to vote. I don’t generally go in for awards but this one, run by a blogging mum, really spoke to me and I am thrilled to have won.

On that note, thank you to M from Nepaliaustralian for taking the time to run them and also congratulations to all the other winners, which include some of my favourites. Please check them out too.

  1. Tara. I am so glad to see you win. Congratulations. I probably should fez up to being the culprit for nominating you but for the life of me I don’t understand why you haven’t got thousands of followers. You see I do enjoy your writing style and like to spread the word about the humour, positivity and unique style of your blog. So glad you have won!!!


    1. I am honoured that you would nominate me, thank you! I actually quite like flying under the radar, it means I only ever get nice followers 🙂 Many congratulations on your win. I voted for you as I love the diversity of your blog.
