Business Awards and the result is...
I WON! I am very proud to tell you all that last night at the North Tyneside Business Awards for 2009 Funky Hand won North Tynesides Retail Business of the Year 2009 !! I was so surprised and so proud. I thought I would share with you a few pics from the mad night we had...
Me before hand trying not to look like I was nervous and doing a very bad job of it!
Here's the whole gang..minus Lisa who was taking the photo!..my wonderful friends who have all supported me through the good times and bad over the last few years whilst we got Funky Hand on it's feet.
Here I am getting my award..and trying to smile sweetly for the newspaper cameras..I'm afraid I was in a bit of a daze and think the pictures might end up with me looking like a smiley mad woman!!
This is my mate Neil's answer to everyone who thought I wouldn't win..which included me!!
I had a fab night and it was just amazing to be recognised like this by my local business community. It really means so much to me and hopefully it will help me to look at my award when I'm sitting here in front of this PC screen in my little backroom office next time I'm trying to come up with the next idea for a CD and thinking I can never do anything any good that I must be doing something right..at least some of the time!
Right all this awards stuff is over now..I'll be back very soon with details of the new CD rom and all about the release date..
Speak again very soon
