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].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.
