You are all amazing

WOW WOW WOW what a week!!!!

As most of you know I have been trying to get Funding from the Enterprise Nation Fund 101 scheme ,  basically you need 1 vote for every £1 you apply for and I reached my total on Sunday .  I was so excited,  as the last 20 voted came in,  I was yelling and counting down,  I am sure Mr WD thought I was completely insane .
I couldn't have done it with out my friends and family,  who spread the word.  But what really amazed me was how the whole of my virtual friend community, rallied round and got me support and votes. They say the power of twitter is a force to be reckoned with and I saw it first hand,  also I have to say people on the folksy forums and Facebook were amazing.  In 9 days I got 250 votes,  mostly from virtual friends and people who I have never met.  I thank each and everyone of you.  It means so much to me as `I can get a good stock of materials in and get a new sign and some leaflets printed.  
You are all amazing xx
I have been running a giveaway which you can check out here.  If you have helped me in my quest and you want to be entered let me know before Wednesday.  leave a note on here, Folksy or facebook and I will add you to my list and Draw it on Wednesday

I am now off to start preparing notes for my student for Saturday and to have a lie down to recover from all the excitement
