REWIND TO JUST OVER A WEEK AGO: MY BOSS SENDS ME THIS ARTICLE:
Campaign has partnered with GoDaddy, the world's largest cloud platform provider dedicated to small, independent ventures, to launch a competition offering five women in the creative technology space the opportunity to attend the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
I ENTER - NEVER ACTUALLY BELIEVING I WILL BE PICKED:
I enter my submission of 300 words about me, my job, my life and my passions, never thinking I would ever win.
Cannes is for the elite, the big cheeses, le grande fromage..
THEN YESTERDAY - OH F**K:
They picked me. Of all the entries and all the amazing creative women in the industry, they picked lil old ME.
Bowled over, excited, shocked, nervous, baffled, feeling a bit sick.
Then my husband and boss had the same reaction. F**k that's amazing. And then the sinking realisation of "oh shit Lolly is going away all next week how are we gonna sort out work/child/life" with 5 days notice.

You'll be hearing and seeing lots more from me, from Cannes next week!! Meanwhile here's a shit Photoshop comp.
