The Search for a Supermum is ON!

Now clearly we are all Supermummies- we fit 36hrs worth of work into 24hrs, are multitasking geniuses and quite frankly, any parent who can juggle everything that needs to be done is blooming fantastic in my book.

Milton recognise this too! In a poll of 2000 people, Holly Willoughby was recently “Crowned” a supermummy, very much deserved I’m sure, but Milton are looking for another Supermummy, amongst all the other Supermummies out there to be given their own super hero status & shiny crown and also, a fun family holiday or spa day!

The mums polled by sterilising experts Milton revealed just how amazing British mums are.  Three quarters are  juggling work while  raising a young family, while 1 in 10 cope with their partners being away long term or are single mums,  1 in 30 have adopted or fostered a child and 1 in 20 do charity or volunteer work.

So if you know a mum who is extra special and deserves some recognition or has supported her family through a tough time, then make sure you nominate her for Milton’s ‘Search for a Supermum’.   First prize is a family activity break at one of three locations in the UK worth £1,000 while the runner up will win a relaxing Champney’s spa day. (Anyone wanting to nominate me for the spa day, remember it is Cawood with a C not a Kay, and if I win, I will post you the free samples I’ll be nabbing from there- he he ). Seriously though, whilst personally I really do think all Mummies are super, if you think you deserve to win or know someone who does, then pop along & nominate them. Lets face it, parenting is the best but most knackering job going, so would it be great to have a little treat like this, for yourself & the family.

Entering is very easy, all you need to do is tell Milton in up to 150 words why your chosen nominee deserves Supermum status and make sure you enter by 27th May!

Terms and conditions are available on the Milton website.  Follow details of the competition on Twitter or on Facebook.

MADS Blog Awards – And Me Pimping Myself!

Holy hell!!!

  • Best MAD Blog Writer,
  • Best New MAD Blog,
  • Best MAD Blog For Family Fun,
  • Most MAD Family Life Blog
  • Parentdish Blogger Of The Year!

I really am quite overwhelmed to be honest. Curly & Candid has only been online since July 2010 so for people to be reading it regularly, let alone actually like it enough to nominate it is well, overwhelming. *sniff*

Now this is the bit I’m not overfond of. This is where I have to pimp myself lol. The way the awards work is that the 5 blogs with the most nominations in each category get into the Final to face the judging panel. So, if you have a minute or two, enjoy Curly & Candid and would like to nominate me in any or all of the above categories – please do!

It really is very easy. To nominate, visit here and enter the curly&candid URL ( ) into any of the categories  you think it deserves a nomination.

If you do nomine, then thank you so much, and if you don’t – thank you anyway for popping along to visit. Curly&Candid wouldn’t mean anything if not for people visiting to have a read.
