Shameless self promotion

Yesterday my blog made it into the Guardian's Comment is Free, best of the web section at no.5.* I've just about managed to refrain from peeing myself with excitement, which is good because my mobile phone, and entire contents of my make up bag have been determined to throw themselves out of my hands and down the toilet this morning. Starting the day by falling backwards into the chest of drawers trying to get out of bed should've been a warning of things to come-clearly excitement has a similar effect upon me as being nervous!

But really, Squee! The Guardian! Wonder if they've cleaned their toilets yet?

WOW WOW WOW I knew it would happen one day. Can I find that on line to look or could you scan it into an email to prove to spouse I know someone famous!!! Onwards and upwards. I am so proud of you.

Excuse for new make up I think, please don't tell me you got it out and used it.

I just joined twitter and don't understand it and can't work out to follow you on it! I am a sad middle aged woman.

Jackart: Thanks hon :)

Achelois: Thank you! I shall do my best to find someone famous to be your friend ;) I don't know how to do a link to the right part of the page, nor do I know how to do a screen grab so I can keep it-think it'll be gone soon.
But, if you go to the comment is free page, just keep scrolling down. There are several sections on the right hand side divided by blue lines. At the very bottom of the page on the right is a blogroll. Scroll up from that and the section Best of the Web is just above it. Hope that helps Xx

Kim and Vonnie: Thank you! Xx

Bendyrebel: Cheers :)

Lankylonglegs: What a lovely thing to say thank you

Alhi: Thank you! How are you lovely?

Dave the dog: Thanks ever so much, hope you're feeling a little better?

Mr. Nighttime said...

Woo hoo! That is fantastic! On the toilet front, was it clean water at least? ;-)

I'll do you a screengrab...

Wordsmith_for_Hire said...

Damn, too late, it's already gone off the page!

MrN: Haha! Fortunately this time things were bounced off the seat, as in the past I've managed to drop things through the gap at the side of the closed toilet seat...it'd be impressive if I could repeat it I guess!

Wordsmith: Thanks anyway x
