So I have some sneaky friends!!!... Or should I say Friend!!! Miss Stacey Fraiser, or Goldfish as I've referred to her as in past posts... She has only gone and blimming nominated me in the Young Achiever section of the Sue Ryder, Women Of Achievement Awards 2011!... And I've only been shortlisted to be part of the final 3!!!...
|Stacey Herself!!!!! (she'll kill me for this bahahaha)|
I really don't feel like I have done anything to deserve this and I am a little embarrassed too if I'm honest, I'm not very good at being told 'you've done really well' & as I know so many others who deserve this more than me I feel a bit like a fraud... Including Stacey herself actually although she'll disagree, she was a teen mum like me from quite a similar background as me & she endured a bit of a stressful start to parenthood... just like me. She has had to deal with her health problems, which have all of a sudden become her life, yet she still has time to deal with mine and Kyds madness... Thank You Miss Fraiser you mad hatter you!... I still might hurt you a little for this.
Enough of the Soppy stuff...
We also get a 3 course dinner, goody bags and to watch the entertainment in style.... I feel like a celeb... well ok maybe just a rich business woman or high society IT girl!!... I know it's over the top I don't think I am quite a Hollyoaks girl but I do slightly want to look like them!! I will be getting all glammed up and walking in like I'm on the red carpet as this will more than likely be the only time i'm going to get to an event such as this!... Make the most of it Baillie!!
If you want to join me & clap the winner on when I lose, you can....
