September sings its song again. Today that song is rain, rain, rain.

But it's not all grey light glooms as I serve a piece of cake and some tea to my guests; I'm on a shortlist for The Wales Blog Awards 2012! Specifically, one of the three finalists in the 'Best Writing on a Blog' category. The three nominated blogs are all very different in style and subject so it should be an interesting decision for the judges: good luck to all of us. We'll find out the winner on 20th September at an awards ceremony in Cardiff. Keep an eye on the blog for the awards, since the event might be streamed live on the night.

You can also vote! There is a People's Choice Award for whichever blog receives the most votes. I'm not as high profile as many of the other blogs, but if you think my blog is worthy of your patronage, and you want to be promoted to a rank which entitles you to a choice of lemon drizzle cake or cherry coconut cake then please consider voting for me!
