Well yesterday I got some VERY amazing news. Thanks to all of you for voting for What allergy? in the Foods You Can FreeFrom People’s Choice Awards 2014, I actually WON the Best FreeFrom Blogger Award for 2014.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who voted. You are all so amazing. I couldn’t do this without all of you reading, commenting and when the awards come along, voting.

If you tweet about it there is a special hashtag #ffpeopleschoiceawards and organiser’s twitter handle is @FoodsYouCan – they like to be cc:d on any tweets.

So if you did vote – did any of you lovely voters with one of the amazing voter prizes? It was tempting to vote for someone myself but I am very very pleased with my lovely golden apple award.

Thanks again. Couldn’t have done it without all of you.

What Allergy towers will be celebrating with some completely dairy free champagne. Can’t wait. So far I have toasted my success over Pizza Express salad with a Greens gluten free lager and also this morning with a plastic cup of water in the oxygen therapy chamber at Chiltern’s MS Centre. I know how to party. Photos to follow.
