FYBF - With special guest star

Morning all and welcome once again to the temporary home of FlogYoBlog Friday!

This week has been a strange one of ups and downs for me, but in true naive form I'll focus on the UPS:

I was filling out some 'selection criteria' recently for an awardy-thing (technical name) and it said "Why should you win?" After thinking long and hard I came up with "Because I haven't won anything in ages" Yeah I know, my writing talents have no end. Well the universe must be wanting to either make me giggle or make me a liar because no sooner do I send it off that I was told I'd won a fabbo stationery set from Leanne at Deep Fried Fruit, a Fantasia DVD from Emma at Mind Your Mum (check out how she announced the winner) and a bottle of Vodka O from the drunken delightful Mrs Woog of Woogsworld. I'm planning on writing a letter while watching the DVD and drinking vodka... I may just lose my pen license though.

The greatness continued last night when I met up with some fab Perth Bloggers and Tweeps, and one very special East Coast Blogger who I'm sure you will all recognize...

I am one of the people in that photo - the first time ever I've put my own pic up (yes, right after listing the pros and cons of blogging anonymously at Mummy Bloggers Blog) but I'm not saying which one I am.

It was a great night and I'll write more about it later, but for now I'll be packing up the Glow-mobile for the five hour drive down south to spend the long weekend with the outlaws inlaws.

Oh and there's a new linky list this time, one that lets you add the code to your site if you want it - the more exposure for everyone the better (though preferably not of the trench coat variety).

The Rules
(As stolen from Lori, thus making Baby Jesus cry... sorry)
  1. Follow Where's My Glow? 
  2. Bow down at the alter of Mummy Time; Blog-goddess, all round groovy gal and creator of FYBF
  3. Grab the FYBF button and post it on your sidebar or in the post you're linking up
  4. Link in your favourite/best post from the week
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the comment love)
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well)
  7. A new and fresh linky list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week
  8. Because I live in Dullsville Perth the list will open around 7am AWST - I'm not getting up at 5am and the last time I scheduled a post it didn't work


Meet Glowless at the Aussie Bloggers Conference thanks to


  1. I know which one you are. I know I know!! And I must say after your last post I feel very privileged to know :) Looks like you had a lovely time last night and no getting any ideas of stealing my girl away ok? You have to send her back to me in one peace, or I'll have to beat you up at ABC ;)

  2. so is there a prize for guessing which one you are?? tell me now!!! come on............

  3. Thanks, Sarah :) When we parted last night with giant cuddles for everyone, she was safely in one piece... if she decides to move to Perth to be closer to my greatness then there is nothing I can do about it :P

  4. Tic toc tic toc not long to go...

  5. Oh you big tease! You all look suitably gorgeous and huggable xo

  6. So I guess I'll just have to move to Perth too?

  7. how wonderful to all meet together! love that this is a guessing game and can't wait to find out for real. naomi x

    I thought I'd be able to guess based on which one resembles Tricky.
    Turns out I was wrong.
    I'm trying to imagine you all with minimal teeth and hair, and it's not happening!
    Well, all the ladies in the photo are beautiful, so whichever one you are, you are beautiful too!! :)

  9. Aw, thanks for posting the pic! And wow, look at your haul in the giveaways! Good luck remaining anonymous at the ABC. :)

  10. No fair, how will I know you at Aus Blog Con?? :) Glad you guys had a great night, am sure it was very special xx

  11. Nope, Tricky is a clone of his dad Map Guy. Glowless's genes barely got a look in.

  12. Just a hint... she's wearing black... tee hee hee

  13. You all look lovely in that pic, sounds like you had a great night. How lucky have you been this week with the giveaways? Good work!

  14. Glad you had a great night meeting up with the other WA bloggers and the ring- in too, of course!

    Please take a photo of a letter written under the influence of VodkaO and Fantasia. I think we will all need proof that it actually happened. In fact maybe yo could vlog while you are doing it!

  15. Have to agree with Aunty Penny Tricky is a mini-me of Map Guy ;)

  16. Aunty Penny beat me to it, but I was going to say that Tricky looks nothing like me! I took a photo of us together recently and it looks like I'm holding a friend's baby, no resemblance at all, but a clone of Map Guy indeed!

  17. I will be the one with a paper bag over my head

  18. All will be revealed very shortly...

  19. Quite the winning streak! Maybe I should complain about not winning more often if this is the result?

  20. OMG my first Vlog under the influence of Vodka?! I like your thinking! I'd title it Vlodka :)

  21. I should have thought of a prize for guessing

  22. I am working on my hugging skills; I've perfected the face-to-the-left technique, if I hug a face-to-the-right-er we'll end up kissing.

  23. I have a dear, good fab friend moving to Perth in June!! I just sent her your link here. I've been telling her she should blog about her journey and join the Perth bloggers. She is an English teacher and loves to write.

  24. Thanku for looking after my Lori, I didn't feel quite so fearful putting her on a plane to the other side if the country knowing she was going to a mummy bloggers meeting with you guys xox
