First of all, Happy New Year to everyone who has been reading / following / sharing this blog. It means the world to me!
Second… I never thought I’d make it, but surprisingly my blog was chosen as one of 35 nominees by MacMillan Love English Awards 2014 and the voting is now open! I am particularly flattered by being together with The Economist’s wonderful Prospero blog – perhaps I’ll vote for them!
You can vote for the Linguistic Spy on this page (just scroll down until you see the list).
Many thanks in advance and have a great year!
P.S. I am now back from my snowy motherland and I am looking forward to updating this blog as often as I can with lots of quirky words and phrases!
