Word of the Week #9

I’ve been looking forward to the month of March since the beginning of the year and now it’s here! So my word this week is:

Word of the Week - AnticipationThis month holds so many things to look forward to: the official start of spring (we hope!), increasingly lighter evenings, the clocks going forward, birthdays for Little Miss and I, Mother’s Day and final deadlines to be met at work, meaning two finished projects and come April the pressure will be off (phew!).

It doesn’t stop there either as April is another month to look forward to, with our fifth wedding anniversary, Easter, a mini-break planned and a week off work.

And I almost forgot, it will also be my blog’s six-month birthday on 18 April! I’m currently trying to think of a way to mark the occasion. I’m finally starting to feel like I’m finding my blog groove and have lots of plans bubbling away in my head for the future. When I wrote my first post back in October I had little idea where it might take me and never imagined I would enjoy blogging as much as I do. I’m so glad I finally took the plunge. If you enjoy this blog too then you might like to nominate me for the MAD 2014 parent blogger awards (shameless plug, sorry, but I would be absolutely thrilled!).

This post is part of the Word of the Week linky run by fellow blogger Jocelyn over at The Reading Residence. The idea is very simple, every week you come up with one word to sum up your week.

My previous words have been:

CanRelievedMidnight, HappyStickersProudSpring and Calm.

The MAD Blog Awards

OK, so I’m probably a little bit late to this party given that nominations have been open several weeks and many people will have already made their voting choices. But for those who haven’t, I’ve finally decided to be brave and throw my hat properly into the ring for the MADs 2014 parent blogger awards. So if anyone would like to nominate me in the Best New Blog category, I would be over the moon/delighted/thrilled/amazed/all of the above.

I started this blog just over four months ago, feeling a bit apprehensive about how it all might go and whether or not I could keep it up. But I needn’t have worried so much as it has fast become a real passion and something I get a lot of pleasure from doing. I’ve also discovered a whole new world of online fun, friends and support among the fantastic parenting blogger community. I just wish I’d joined in sooner!

So if you’ve enjoyed reading my posts as much as I have writing them and you’ve yet to give your vote, please do consider little old me! Nominations close on 14 March 2014 and you can vote here – please enter the blog details

And a huge thank you to everyone who’s read and supported Mummy’s to do list over the last few months!
