To say I had an odd day yesterday is a bit of an understatement Smiley Very Happy

Yesterday morning, I received an ambiguous PM from @hazel22 asking if I would be at home between 12.30 and 1.30pm. Smiley Indifferent Assuming I was just waiting for a parcel to arrive with a giffgaff USB or a Rubiks cube, I told her I would be in, and she said that's great, a surprise would be coming for me.


Just before 1.30, there was a knock at the door. My mum opened it to find @amy_b_d in front of her, asking for me? Smiley Very Happy I came downstairs, and on my doorstep were a bunch of giffgaff people, including... 2 PEOPLE DRESSED AS PENGUINS!!! Smiley Surprised 

The penguins were very excited to see me - one called 'Beth' and one called 'anaaay', both looking for bethanaaay! Smiley Very Happy They were absolutely hilarious, and I was just speechless. They gave me my favourite chocolate bars (a Double Decker, a Boost, and 2 Peanut Butter KitKat Chunkys - which I'd mentioned in a thread yonks ago), did a sketch about me, and then they said "Bethanaaay, we would like to invite you to the giffgaff GAFFTAs awards ceremony!" Smiley Surprised I still hadn't recovered my ability to speak, so once I'd mustered together an 'Okay then!', it dissolved further into madness Smiley Very Happy


One of the penguins whipped out a massive disco ball, and I was walked down my little path onto the pavement, where I danced with the penguins... a penguin dance, of course Smiley Wink At which point, I was awarded a GAFFTA for being a "Unite-er"!!

Honestly, it was the most bizarre 10 minutes of my life. Smiley Tongue But I flipping loved it, and I honestly cannot thank everyone enough - the people who nominated me, the judges, the staff, everyone who organised it, the people who came... everyone. I'm honestly so flattered (I barely stopped weeping yesterday afternoon) that even 1 person would think I deserve it. It was such an amazing experience, really personal, and I loved it Smiley Happy I'll never forget it.


Thank you giffgaff Heart


And here's my GAFFTA in all its glory:

Congrats thast awesome definitely a day to remember-well done!! Smiley Happy

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take, relationships we were afraid to have,
& the decisions we waited too long to make.

Kiss slowly, Play hard, forgive quickly, Take chances, Give everything & have NO regrets Smiley Wink
