Sitting in the cafe in the uber-cool Deaf Institute in Manchester last night there was a moment when we looked at each other and said ‘what if we win? Better think of something to say ..’ Hm. We didn’t get to throw Gwyneth Paltrow hysterics because we were runners up – but hey – runners up! It was a strong field so we were chuffed to have been shortlisted, never mind win. There was a warm, inclusive vibe in the awards hall and some very funny bloggers stood up and read extracts; Kevin Boniface, a postman from Huddersfield had us in tucks with his wry day to day observations and he rightly won the ‘Best Writing’ category with his blog ‘The Most Difficult Thing Ever’. Next year we’re gonna take ’em by storm. Seriously though, Gwynnie notwithstanding, huge thanks to all our chums who voted for us. We love you from the bottom of our hearts etc ..
