So here’s the thing

…this old blog of mine is in a blogging competition…

 

 

it’s a big one…

the biggest and the bestest Australian blogs are competing and there are prizes up for grabs…

not sure how I got myself in this mess

but I am in there

playing with the big girls

.it’s run by the guys at the Sydney Writer’s Centre

And I’d like it if you voted for me…

you know what?

I would absolutely be stoked if you would vote for me!

it feels funny for me to ask

‘cos I am a closet power freak

I like to be the one in charge

and now here I find I have to ask you stinky lot to help me out

…’cos I think I am coming last….

and if I come last

I don’t think you guys will call me Queen of Beach Cottages anymore

and I wouldn’t really like that

**so what I am saying here is this**

Beach Cottage Lurkers

I love ya Lurkers and I love love love that you like my blog

…yeah yeah I can see you you know…

don’t think you can hide behind the bike sheds

you are all there lurking in the Stat Shadows

I can see ya

SO

can ya do this old beach lovin’ babe a favour?

can you vote for me..?

oh and while you’re at it…

how about you get your husband, your aunty,

your neighbour, the mummies at your school,

your nan and your work colleagues to too???

(don’t tell them that I said that bit

‘cos I think these guys are pretty serious

you know they are

writers

they might not get the kinda things we get up to on here

so if you do get your aunty or husband or neighbour

to vote

make sure

you brief them

in all things BC

in case

the Aussie Best Blog Police call

K?

remember I have told you before

these Aussies

are SERIOUS

about competition

and sport

of any kind

so remember to tell them about

coastal and chic

and ruffles and white

and shell spheres and nautical stripes

and tablescapes, you must include tablescapes

yeah and flowers…white ones

but remember I love coloured ones too

sometimes

don’t forget the treasure hunting!

no you can’t forget that

but don’t tell them I steal things from the side of the road

and then broadcast that on the internet

they might not like that bit

oh yeah tell ‘em I like me a bit of French

that sounds chic

oh and bare floorboards

that sounds cool

remember I like

white paint

and don’t forget to tell them about

The Teenager

they might feel sorry for me for that

and include the Ballet Flats

& the bit where I stood on the chair

and forced the Teenager to take pics

I reckon they’d dig that bit

oh and Saturday Club

of course include Saturday Club

I am sure they’d love themselves some downtime

oh and the chair in the water

that is a bit arty

I think they’d embrace that..

Yeah?

muchos gracias

    Hi Sarah,
    Just voted but had to be a bit naughty…you see I had already voted a little while ago for another blog – I didn’t know that you were in the running sorry, otherwise you would have had my vote then. Anyhow, it wouldn’t let me do it again, so I logged on to husband’s computer and used his name!!
    Good luck and I don’t believe for one minute that you’re last!

    Hi Sarah,
    I’m coming out of lurkville to give you my vote! Needed a bit of prodding (guilt)…lol I’ve LOVED your blog since I, somehow, still not sure how, happened upon it a few months ago. I am totally new to this blog reading world. I don’t Facebook or Twitter so am thrilled I can follow you through your blog. Love your style, wit and all around casualness (is that a word?) Hope you win!

  27. Barbara Mars says:

    Voted for ya, honey! Have slobbered all over your blog for some time now – loving your ‘beachy’ look and try to inc. YOUR look into mine and failing miserably, but keep on trying. Loving anything white, whiter and whitest for ‘that’ look that you have and transforming every piece of furniture I own into something ‘beachy’. lol
    Good luck – can’t see you losing this one. . . . .
