The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

What a week!

Posted on


This week has not been what you would consider a "normal" week. I could try "unique", "amazing", "classic" or truly "amazing", but normal definately doesnt cover it.
It started last Sunday, when I began to receive countless emails saying that we had new followers. At first I thought that Twitter had got a backlog of notifications but then it dawned on me that we had sent a small business Sunday (#sbs) tweet to Theo Paphitis. Lo and behold, there it was .....

The messages, twitter mentions and it seemed our complete inbox just went bonkers! (bonkers is a technical term you understand).
By Monday morning we had countless emails offering to work with us, new opportunities and exciting partnerships. The order levels on the Lilypad saw a significant rise and due to unprecedented demand, we ended up with some products going out of stock!
The Little Lilypad Co has always had a small boutique appeal for those quirky gifts but with a larger audience, we clearly appeal to a wider spectrum than anticipated.
Due to the increased workload, there have not been many evenings where sleep has come before midnight but we are certainly not complaining (tired but not complaining). Its amazing the power of a small tweet by a "Dragon" but we are extremely grateful for this recognition.
We have spent most of the weekend at the NEC Baby Show with, helping to support other mums in business and meeting many of our great twitter friends! Did we see you?
So all in all, what a week - its been "toadally" brilliant!!
How about you?
