So my ‘Thank you’ to Philippe Vatan has turned out to be not quite the final post before my summer break after all. Just hours from my departure to Tuscany, I am absolutely delighted to learn I have been shortlisted in the Roederer 2011 Awards, in the online columnist/blogger category.
I always wondered what it would feel like to be shortlisted for something – now I know! It feels great, I am delighted to be listed alongside such erudite writers. In my category, these include Tim Atkin MW, Jamie Goode, Alice Feiring and Peter Richards MW. So the competition is stiff, and I wouldn’t place any bets on me to win! But to be shortlisted is a really welcome accolade. As I said, I’m delighted!
