So this week, my little corner of the internet is celebrating its eighth birthday. Eight whole years of talking waffle! I was telling someone recently (in the manner of a very old lady) that when I started out, I knew most of the other ‘mummy bloggers’ out there. There weren’t very many and we all felt like friends, commenting on each other’s blog posts and actually meeting up in real life occasionally too! Eight years later, and English Mum has changed a lot – there have been a couple of domain name changes, and several facelifts along the way, but the essence of the site remains the same as it was in 2006: it’s me, talking about the things that I love, and feeling very chuffed that, eight years on, tens of thousands of people every month like it enough to pop by and have a read. And talking of 2006, I got these really lovely personalised presents from GettingPersonal.co.uk – a gorgeous, chunky Jamie Oliver antipasti serving board, lovingly personalised and dated, and a lovely personalised Jamie Oliver seasoning block too. I feel very spoilt!
To thank you all for popping in every so often, Getting Personal have very kindly offered to personalise another of these antipasti serving boards for one lucky reader. To win, just leave a comment and tell me what you’d serve on your lovely board if you were to be the lucky winner. Thank you to everyone who continues to make me very happy by reading my waffle. And thanks to this lovely lot, who have made it all possible: Usual English Mum terms and conditions apply (click here to read), competition ends at 9am on 1st August 2014. If you’re a new commenter, remember your new comment won’t show up until it’s been approved. Good luck!
