We have had an amazing couple of days being pampered with gifts and an award, for the love story category in the Hearst Company’s Cosmopolitan Magazine Ultimate Woman Awards 2014.

Yesterday was the award ceremony where we were made aware of many real issues being faced by people in the world including forced marriage, detecting and fighting cancer, youth violence and living with undiagnosed life-threatening disease. It was nice to meet celebrities taking it seriously and the inspirational people involved in the campaigns.

We were presented with the award and it was lovely to see our love and appreciation for life reflected by the audience.

Thanks to all the events team including Rosie, Jean, magazine editor Louise. Really enjoyed meeting Fearne Cotton, Pixie Lott, Tulisa, Danni from “The Script”, Millie Mackintosh and the¬†wonderful inspirational Kirsty

Enjoyed seeing the feisty Mel B and McBusted in the flesh and love that Louie Walsh told me I “did a good job”, good complement from such a well-respected but ferocious critic.

Great to hear good things about the backup trust’s valuable mentoring service in the Guardian newspaper. Good Work Guys

lots of love and gratitude from Ellen and I
