Forget tomorrow’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year, I’ve just realised I haven’t yet posted anything on here about this website’s exciting placing as a finalist in the Garden Media Guild Awards New Talent category.
New talent!!! Of course, it’s not a normal talent contest – I didn’t have to sing or tap dance (luckily) – but I’m delighted to have been on the list next to such wonderful writers as Debora Robertson who was there for her book Gifts from the Garden, (and very good it is too, highly recommended) and Annie Guilfoyle.
I can’t tell you how chuffed I am. Sometimes I think all bloggers wonder if anyone is actually reading them, and this has given me a real boost to carry on visiting and posting new poems next year.
