2018 was an incredibly difficult year for me on a personal level. I don’t want to go into all the doom and gloom here, but I think it’s fair to say that it’s the worst year I’ve ever experienced and there have been some other contenders for that in recent years. The tail end of the year was the worst part of it and I haven’t really felt in the mood to share some great news with you all until now.
So it’s lovely to have some really good news to celebrate. I’ve only gone and won an award: Food Blogger of the Year 2018 – UK. It’s one of the awards given by LUXlife magazine and it’s great to see the name of my blog up there with so many great blogs and websites. It’s a real honour. Sometimes in this job you can feel you are working away alone and no one really appreciates your work, so awards like this do provide a very welcome boost. You can read about the other winners in my category : The Food & Drinks Awards here. Looking through there are so many great hotels and restaurants I now want to visit and so many wonderful food and drink producers that I now want to sample. There’s plenty there to keep me occupied for a long time to come.
Here’s a link to the announcement of my win. Many many thanks once again to LUXlife magazine. I’m so thrilled to be included in your list of award winners.
