Vote for Barbara!

Hello hello! Grace here again…

Since lockdown began I’ve been ‘in charge’ of Facebook. And I’ve seen THOUSANDS of comments about how my Mum has helped so many through lockdown and beyond… and back into lockdown again πŸ˜‰

I agree with you. The moment everything started to hit the fan, she got behind the steering wheel of the SHAC SHACK bus… 1 hour a day for about 6 months!! And she’s still doing Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays! Wow. What a trooper.

I can’t begin to explain how much time, effort and thought has gone into these sessions. And I know how therapeutic they’ve been these many months, for everyone. It stopped so many from feeling as isolated or alone. It helped to stop our washing machine heads. And kept us Safe, Happy And Creative.

Stay Home And Craft. And that we did, thanks to Barbara πŸ™‚

And we’ve learnt some new skills, have we not?

So… now it’s time to show her how much we appreciate all of that hard work. She will hate that I’ve written this blog, because she doesn’t do it for the recognition. But let’s be honest, this pandemic has hit my Mum just as hard as anyone else… personally and business wise. So I’m posting it anyway!

I (as well as many others) think she deserves a medal. But… an award for Best Influencer would work nicely too!

Will you vote with me?

The deadline is MIDNIGHT tonight UK time!

The Vuelio Influencer Awards are now open for nominations. They are a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate those who seek to influence and inspire us all forΒ better, in the online world. She has certainly done that for us!

    I did it yesterday, Grace, though I could really have done with your list of the factual answers! It was tough to choose five categories too as she ticks them all.

    That’s a beautiful photo of the two of you. You are so like your mum. She has done a great job for us all throughout this pandemic. I appreciate it as most of the time I am on my own, with or without the pandemic. Hope you are ok, Grace, despite the madness in the States! Lots of love. Hxx

    Done. As said earlier the hardest part was choosing just five attributes. I had given up as couldn,t get it to work but then discovered you had to have a finger on the nominsation form and scroll it up! Just in case it helps others.

    Done, thank you Grace. It was such a big help that you gave us the answers to question that we might have had to search for. I have tried on a few occasions to vote but have failed previously. Result. You are a gem like your mum ❀️

    As I have said before, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Your mum must be so proud of you. The difference Barb has made to so many of us during the pandemic is enormous and I really hope that she gets the recognition she deserves. Thanks Grace. X
