yay!!! we made it!
What a roller coaster of a week this has been, and how amazing to have got through it and been selected! I can't thank those at toys R us enough!
So, we were all sitting anxioussly watching our facebook pages, refreshing the toys R us page, every second, passing comments between each other, all hopeful that it *could be us* but never truely admitting this could become reality!
We were told the news would be announced at 12 noon, so we all waited on tenterhook, looking out for that all importnat message from Geoffrey, checking emails, facebook, twitter (well I didn't check twitter because I still need to get my head around that!) then after keeping us on our toes, Geoffrey finally put us out of our misery and posted that he had choosen his toyologists, and I was gobsmacked to see my name on that list, along with these amazing bloggers:
Wendy McDonald - Inside the wendy house
