Because you all know there’ll be as many selfies at The MADs (Mum and Dad Blogging Awards) than the Oscars. On Sunday night I was pootling around on the internet – erm, I mean working hard – when I saw a tweet saying the finalists for the MAD Awards were out.

This is what I currently look like. It is not a pretty sight; the state of my bikini line is beyond acceptable and my eyebrows are taking over my face.
