We are treating ourselves to a stay at this newly opened, elegant hotel hosting the UK Blog Awards so that when my fatigue digs its fangs in I can flop straight into bed.
But when I take a peek, over 30 steps await the able bloggers. So back in the hotel, we pop out of the lift below the steps and cameras!
Inside the Wonderland of trees we are greeted by a giant green, grinning cat, toadstools and piles of tea pots, cups and saucers. A rainbow of alcoholic cocktails flow from waitresses trays. So we head to the bar to ask for our 'sparkling water champagne'.and get a closer view of the Cat!
As the buzz of bloggers chatting fills the tree lined ballroom, smiling, I ask a gent standing by my side
Where’s Alice! Has anyone seen Alice?...
With everyone seated in the sparkling pink room Gemma Pearce the founder of the UK Blog Awards opens the event.
My heart is thumping when the host, Vlogger Andy Samuels, announces the ten short listed Individual health Blogs….
The silent drum rolls in my head when the two Highly Commended blogs appear on the screen...
I turn and grin at Mr H as he wraps his arms around me. And the Urban Kultur Blogger and his brother sitting by our side say well done Dawn.
As soon as the Awards are complete I wander to the front to thank the Health judges; Kath Evans, Head of Patient Experience in NHS England and Children's Nurse and Dinh Tu, Social Media Consultant for Bupa.
I am thrilled with my Highly Commended Award and as we swap tales of our nursing experience Kath tweets a selfie of us both…
Back in our room at the Magical Montcalm we sip camomile tea as I tweet and text my Award to the world of waiting family and friends...
I want to thank each and every one of you for reading my blogs and for voting and helping me reach the short list for these Awards.
