My Sincere Apology to You for What is About to Happen

I’M WRITING THIS FULL OF THE NASTIEST COLD I’VE HAD IN YEARS.  

The headache is messing with my brain, i can’t stop sneezing all over the ruddy keyboard (yuk) and my preoccupation with my aching throat is robbing me of my comedic juices.

It’s a right chuffing nuisance as I was going to heavily rely on those comedic juices to endear myself to you. You know…

..BEFORE I DO THAT THING FOR WHICH I OWE YOU MY SINCERE APOLOGY.

Anyway, it’s been over a year since I:

joked about wanting a podium moment, mentioned how I had this fab dress I wanted to wear
and got all misty-eyed over how the only things I’d ever won in my life were a packet of four felt tip pens at the age of 9 and a an oversized phallic gold trophy for an 8 mile race at the age of 45 (seriously).

And now it’s that time of year again! That time of year where I need to use every trick in the book (sympathy, comedy, outright begging) to get you to do that thing for which I owe you an apology.  Instead, I’m staring at the floor, shuffling nervously and can hear myself talking in a small embarrassed voice. Yep…

AWARDS SEASON IS HERE AND NOMINATIONS FOR THE BRILLIANCE IN BLOGGING AWARDS ARE NOW OPEN. SO I’M ASKING FOR A 30 SECOND FAVOUR FROM YOU!!

Ok, yes it’s a bit cringy and embarrassing but 1) if I don’t ask, who will on my behalf? and 2) if you don’t ask you don’t get.

To have a hope of overcoming that first hurdle…you have to show up at the starting line first.

So even though I know there is a lot of conflicting chatter at the moment about blog awards – and I myself recently wrote about the absence of a writer award this year – I AM showing up the starting line and putting my best foot forward. 

Enough with the dreadful metaphors.

Now, the problem is, as I’m a sick bunny, I’m lacking in the ‘every trick in the book’ creative department and don’t have the energy required to come up with a load of clever, witty or compelling  reasons for you to vote for me. (Think of it this way, it certainly keeps the post short.)
