Since I started blogging, my writing has been regularly recognised and/or published elsewhere. I’m so happy people are enjoying what I do.
I was nominated for ‘Fresh Voice‘ in the BritMums Brilliance in Blogging awards and was nominated as ‘Best Writer’ and ‘Blog of the Year‘ in the 2015 MAD Blog Awards.
I have been overwhelmed at the positive response to my blog and my writing. Thank you.
This month I was featured in the #Beingamother project on Motherhood The Real Deal. There are some fabulous bloggers and writers involved in the project. It’s definitely worth taking a look.

Mummy Pages wrote this lovely review about Bottlefor2:
Written by mum-of-one Lucy, Bottlefor2 is a blog that will become your best friend! Written in a casual, conversational tone it’s the type of blog that you would read cup of tea in one hand and a cake in the other – just as if you were talking to your friends.
A self-confessed wine lover, home cook, self-help enthusiast and business owner, Lucy, who is mum to one-year-old Elsie May, has created a blog that is real, honest and above all else relatable.
Documenting her life as she returns to work and adjusts to being away from her daughter, this is one blog that you need to follow.
