BAPS Nominations 2019

๐ŸŒŸItโ€™s finally here… the BAPS nominations are now open for 2019!๐ŸŒŸ

So what are the BAPS?

They stand for Bloody Awesome Parents (great title ๐Ÿ˜‰) and are awards that recognise writing about SEND. They also aim to highlight those who are making a difference and it is also a place where campaigning about improving the lives for those with SEND is celebrated too.

Last year I got to the finals and it was an amazing experience – being in a room full of so many heartbreaking stories but writers who carry on regardless, striving for change and understanding.

I also got to stand next to Gethin Jones in a picture (where my hand *accidentally* managed to touch his very nice buttocks) – now who wouldnโ€™t want to do that again?!

For anyone who wants to read about the last event, the link can be found here:

It would be great to get PDA talked about once again and there are some great blogs out there which I know I will be nominating – a fairly recent list can be found here by Notes on PDA.

Although there are plenty of other writers who I will be nominating too that write about other disabilities and with whom I share links to regularly to on my Facebook page and my account on Twitter.

This year, there is also a category for a Bloody Awesome Parent, but for someone who is not a blogger. It could be someone who runs a support group or makes a difference to your life – there are way too many people I want to put in that category!

If anyone does want to nominate this blog then I would be most grateful – although Iโ€™ll understand if not as I feel lucky to have been a finalist twice this year already (without the support received by all of you then that wouldnโ€™t have been possible ๐Ÿ˜).

For those who may wish to nominate then my email address is is probably the only info you need to do it.

To enter nominations for any of the categories here is a quick link to the form.

I wish all of the other writers I know, who I have met in person or maybe online, lots of luck ahead too.

Anyone who gets through will be a celebration in my eyes ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚
