My five minutes of fame!

This morning, on the way to school, I had the most wonderful surprise. I was just dodging a large water truck, while listening to LB chattering in the back, when I suddenly realised my blog was being read out on the radio!

“LB, be quiet – please!” I shushed. “Listen!” [not that he knows what my blog is, or was about to start listening].

“Mum! You didn’t want to actually SIT on the sofa, did you?”

But he did stay quiet long enough for me to hear my favourite Dubai 92 DJ, CatBoy, read out nearly an entire post – the one on (underhand) school run tips and tricks.

I practically danced LB into his classroom and let the double-parking nonsense that’s going on outside the gates roll off my shoulders. Heavens, I was even wearing the black gym wear that’s currently trending on the school run. Drop-off doesn’t get any better!

The tsunami of extra visits my blog received today may all be one-hit wonders, but it was really fun to witness the power of social media (the radio station re-tweeted the post on Twitter and it made it onto their Facebook page too).

Of course, now I have stage fright – and can’t think of anything to write about. So suffice to say, in a week where DH has been on the other side of the world the whole time – and the children decided it would be fun to rearrange the living room furniture – my five minutes of fame really put a smile on my face. 🙂

    About time you were famous, your writing skills are brilliant. I’ve said before you should compile all your blogs into a book and have it published.
