Like Zoella: Only A Bit Chubby, Old and Tired

So the exciting news is I have been nominated for an award! Now some of you who dip and in and out of my blog may not know this but I have a YouTube channel. Whilst my writing can be sweary and a bit of a 'grumpy Mum' my videos? Aren't really. I'll be honest? My videos are more about the fun times of being a parent. Days Out (click on the pictures for Thomas Land and Peppa World below), me talking about rubbish I've brought in shops (ah the joy of new stationery!) and the odd Kinder Egg opening video (Oh yes I went there!).




Zoella I ain't. But happy I am. I LOVE making them. It makes me smile. And every time my kids watch any of them. Even me wanging out about buying stuff in the Next sale. They yelp with joy. They think when any of us are featured on my channel. We are stars. My girl even quite correctly said that really she was up for the award too. And she should be. And my boy, reluctant husband and any other friends and family that pop up on days out.

So here is the deal. I will continue to make sweary, ranty posts that hopefully will resonate with you and make you smile. In return? If you have a moment please make this YouTube loving Mum very happy by giving me your vote in the BritMums 2015 Brilliance in Blogging awards. Some of you may think that YouTube is crap, or that I have the talent of a plank of wood. But just think of me as a novelty act in the X Factor. The Chico of the music world. And we all love a bit of Chico!

Here's how! Click this link here. Go to the Survey Monkey. Choose the video category which is number 9 and click on Brummy Mummy! All you need is your name and email address. Thanks ever so much. Imagine how happy Chico would have been if he won the X Factor! #livinthedream
