Thanks everyone,

It was really a surprise, in my time I have worked with Ideal and Training Link, they are really great people, and i know the competition was tough.

Congratulations to everyone, and it was nice to see some new winners!

Congratulations to Michelle - looks like I have to settle for a runner up position again. Will have to kick some arse of the clients etc. that forgot to vote for me!

In all seriousness it is good to be nominated for these awards and pleased to be in the top 3 for the third year in a row.

I'm sure that I wrote a reply in this thread? Bet it was on one of my other open tabs to the site that I've gone and closed.

Sorry for the late reply all,

To echo others congratulations a really big well done to everyone. Winners and runners up (i.e. me) included.

p.s. Liz, will you please sit still. Everytime the crosshair gets perfectly positioned you move!

Hi Michelle,

it takes a little time as they have to get the glass etched with your name.

Can't remember how long mine took to come through but pretty sure that it was before Christmas.

Hi Steve, thanks for the update. I managed to wangle a bit of a write up in the local paper, and they were asking why I had no award in my photo, so I wondered how long they would be. They will just have to deal with my face on its own, as the column runs next wednesday and I have had the photo done now :)

I got mine on Christmas Eve too!

I was on my own in the office (staff finished the day before) when the doorbell rang. It was the local florist with a HUGE bouquet of flowers for me from the staff!

Then the door went again and it was a DHL courier. I said that I wasn't expecting anything. He said "Maybe it's your Bookkeeper of the Year trophy!" And it was! Don't know how he knew though!

I am still keeping my eye out for mine, but we are always a bit behind the rest of the country here in North Lincolnshire. We only got channel 5 last week!

All the best for 2014.

Good things come to those who wait!

That advert was done without my consent or knowledge! They have a strange sense of humour here, even more so since Neil joined!

Have another really good year in 2014 Brian.
