When I got home after The MAD's the children were of course pleased to see me (and the bag of Mega Bloks that I was carrying and the packets of chocolate hidden in my bags) and so was Daddy. We started sharing stories about what had happened, who we had seen, what we had done (and who we had done it with!) and generally catching up when suddenly Daddy passed me an envelope with a flower drawn on the front.
"It's because your Pippa and your Mummy, so I didn't know what to write" explained Daddy.
I hadn't really cried since being named as the overall winner of The MAD's Best Blog for Family Fun (because everyone who was nominated is a winner) as I was on an emotional high and I knew it was only a matter of time before I did. I knew as I was opening the envelope that I was about to really really cry and I did.
So I thought I would share with you what was in the envelope.
