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…

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
