Northerndad has won the prestigious Writer category at the National Blogging Awards, which was hosted in London by Britmums.

Receiving my award from the lovely Carol Smillie. Thanks to Michelle at, for this pic.



In my mind, I look like Ben from Curiosity Killed the Cat. In reality, I look like pop bookworm, Moby. Although, I do make a point of never being photographed next to a wonky painting; what an amateur.


Immediately after the awards’ ceremony, Carol and I got married. I didn’t know you had to marry the person who gave you the award, but it’s going well so far.

Britmums is only the second competition I have ever entered. The first was the, Kissing Cousins competition at Butlins.  I came second, even though I kissed it up real good with my cousin. It was later revealed that the winners were actually brother and sister and should have been disqualified. You can quite clearly see the look of guilt on her face. But I’d like to take this opportunity to wish them all the best in their recent marriage.
