Something Vaguely Weird Has Happened


Yes, goode huswives, I have been voted number 293 out of the top 300 political blogs in the UK. I am so flabbergasted by this, that my political bits and bobs have registered with my readers, that I'm having to have a nice sit down and a cup of tea (just like Tony Benn I drink a lot of tea). When I've fully recovered from this shock, and only then, will I tackle the ironing. After I've done the ironing I'll write a manifesto for my proposed matriarchal dictatorship. Who said a housewife's life wasn't full of thrills and spills?
To be perfectly frank with you, I never thought I had enough readers to ever register for such a thing. So if you did vote for me, I want to thank you very much as I'm quite chuffed.

Hi Jenny
Long live the Homespun Revolutionaries!

Hi Nikki
I'm amazed too. I can only think that those who voted like a recipe or two with their politics.

Hi Angela
I read one or two political blogs, but I don't comment on them, so I had absolutely no idea that I'd been nominated/voted for. I'm extremely excited about receiving the parcel!

Congrats, Dulce! Had I known there was voting to be done, I would have voted for you, you Radical UK Housewife blogger--you rock!

Dudette! Come the revolution! Lol. :)

Well done...a new political career perhaps?

Oh and thanks for the award a couple of posts back, you are too kind, I may just switch my blog back on...or I may not.

Love
Sarah

...not sure why I am just 'S' I must have changed it...though can't remember why!

Hi Frances
Ooh, thank you m'dear. You rock too. You rock like Iggy.

Hi Sarah
or should I say "Yo S!"
Too right "come the revolution!" I've already formulated an "enemies list" just like Richard Nixon.

With regards to your blog, do whatever you feel is best, chuckie egg.

Congratulations! I'm not of the UK, but I would've voted for you. Perhaps they like the cherry brandy and sloe gin recipes too?

Hi Jody
If you were of the UK I'd make you Chancellor of the Exchequor! We need a little homesupon commons sense right now.

Well, how about that? I'm a bit behind on my blog reading, but very glad to hear about this!

Funny, I never thought of your blog as particularly political, just fun. But I guess being a housewife is a political statement in itself?
