little blog awards

Guess what?  Nip it in the Bud has been nominated for Dorset Cereals Little Blog Awards.  I’m not normally competitive but there’s free food at stake so I’d appreciate your vote if you enjoy my ramblings.  The blog with the most votes at the end of every month will win a lovely Dorset Cereals goodie bag.  There’s free food in it for voters too with entry into a draw to win a case of Dorset Cereals so what are you waiting for?  You can vote for as many blogs as you like and at the end of each month the voting will be re-set to give new blogs a chance to win.
To vote for Nip it in the bud (thanks heaps if you do) click on the ‘Little Blog Awards Vote for Me‘ button in the sidebar on the right.

    Hi Nic, I’ve just become vote no.15; u can do it.
    I’ve just been clearing my inbox and found some posts I missed in October when I was on holiday, particularly engrossed with tiny toms. (some tiny toms I know do grow bigger though). My wife has bought little bullet-shaped toms sometimes that u can pop into your mouth easily. These like your tiny toms are ideal for lunch boxes. So awkward otherwise when u haven’t got a knife, u take a carefully, but blind bite into the tom and get seeds all down your front. vote for tiny toms as well. Just written this to the tune of “Out in the fields”! Regards

      I’m a huge cherry tomato fan for the same reason :o) tomato seed splattered tops are not a pretty sight and why does it only happen when you’re wearing white?

    Just voted for you.

  • 8. Peggy  |  February 4, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    Have voted, best of luck I think you are ‘way ahead of the posse so far!

    Hi Nic, I will vote for you!
    I have asked you to post your favourite photo as part of Kella’s meme thing, and I wondered if you would join in? If you haven’t already? I love reading your blog and I would love to know more about you.

    I just voted for you too. Good luck, you deserve to win. Anne

    Keep meaning to ask – did you win? You were certainly way ahead of all the others when I voted.

    • 13. Nip it in the bud  |  March 19, 2010 at 8:48 pm

      i had 89 votes in the end but a popular potter’s website steamed ahead in the last week with well over 100 votes. hey ho…

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #cookingwithkidsisfun #avocadoslicer #steeljiggers #stainlesssteeltongs #icecreamscoop #bakersdustingwand  #oxouk E's birthday is about 3 weeks after Christmas so I always start thinking about his celebrations around this time.  We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
