I’ve been trying to get hold of Frances since yesterday to tell her the news. She eventually picks up.
“Are you at home?”
“No, I’m at the doctor’s.” I can hear Mia shrieking in the background.
“Is everyone okay?”
“I’ve just got an appointment with my mental health worker.”
“Now then, I’ve got some good news for you.”
“Oo, Go on.”
“We’ve been shortlisted for the Blog North Awards in both the the best personal blog and best writing categories.”
“Ah, wicked.” It sounds as if Mia is whooping too.
“So we’ll have to go to the award ceremony… I’ve already bought the tickets.”
“Ah, brilliant. When is it?” I tell her the date.
“There’s also a public vote, so you’ll have to get everyone you know to vote for it.”
“Yeah, okay! I’m going to have to go because my appointment is now… I need to go in. Ring me back later.”
