Last night I had the pleasure to party with the “chosen ones”, those Mum and Dad (MAD) bloggers who made the finals in the MAD Blog Awards.
Sally and her team have been working for weeks for the awards ceremony to be a success. “The MAD Blog Awards, in association with Parentdish.co.uk celebrate great British families and their blogs, celebrating all that’s brilliant about British Mummy and Daddy bloggers. More than 50,000 nominations and votes were received in the 2011 MAD Blog Awards, and the winners were announced on September 30th at a glittering awards ceremony in London.” (source: http://www.sallywhittle.co.uk/)
It was a fantastic night- a great venue, good finger food, wine flowing, old friends catching up with each other and new friendships being made.
Awards were won, rivals congratulated each other and tears of winners flowed. The general sentiment was gratitude for making the finals and often surprise at actually winning.
The dresses of the evening were stunning, the shoes the icing on the cake. It was truly like the Oscar’s.
I am still curious who has cloakroom ticket number 25! It was an item that remained uncollected… a bottle of vodka in a plastic bag. 🙂
I have captured a couple of snapshots of the evening, not the best quality, but I trust they give a good impression of the evening. (Click on images to scroll on)
