My own family gave up listening to me years ago,
but thanks to the higher intellect of my fellow bloggers,
I have been “awarded”
The Most Versatile Blogger Award
And the Sisterhood of the World blogger award!

Firstly I would like to say thank you so very much to,
who nominated me for “Sisterhood of the World” blogger award.
Check her out.
She is one very versatile blogger,
but has that award already!
Sisterhood of the World Blogger!!
That is some title.
I am not brave enough to tell anyone in my house about it!

I would also like to sincerely thank,
and also Deo Volente
who both nominated me for “very inspiring blogger” award.
Again if I were to tell my family,
that I inspire anyone they would laugh out loud.

However getting an award also means,
You must post a boring post,
and spend ages linking.
Not to mention the fact,
that some of those you nominate,
may be anything but pleased!!!!

With that in mind,
I would like to stress to my nominees,
that they do not have to accept their award,
(which I lovingly send to them)
I nominate them because,
I would like others,
to check them out,
and maybe enjoy them as much as I do.

I am going to nominate blogs that I like,
who do not seem to have as many followers as I think they should.
Please please note that if your listed I do not expect you to follow on the award.
I just want others to check out your site.
So you are under no obligation at all!!!

Sisterhood of the World award.

Most Versatile Blogger Award

I’d also like to not award donofalltrades this award,
unless he would like to accept it!

Actually if I ever had to do this again,
that is what I would do.
Not nominate people!
That way they get the plug but not the obligation!

Also I know I fell short in the number I nominated,
but really 15!!!
So if I should have nominated you,
I’m so sorry,
but I grew old preparing this post!

Now hopefully no one is still reading.
I’m supposed to say 7 things about myself.

1. I come from Dublin but defected to Cork, Ireland!
2. I swam internationally for Ireland.
3. I am head teacher in a swim club to over 320 children.
4. I hate coffee.
5. I hate posting about myself.
6. I cant count.

Thank you all again
for reading.

I will post my real post later.
It may be called,
“An elephant in West Cork!”
but then again it may not.

  1. A swimmer? No coffee? You are quite a mystery! Those are things that I find shocking for no real good reason. My favorite is that you live in Cork, Ireland! OMG, I love that! I must send you snail mail repeatedly so that I can write and think about Cork, Ireland often! Did your daughter make it home from school and enjoy her poem, btw?

    Also, thank you so much for not nominating me for an award! i love the attention, actually. I’m an attention whore, according to my wife. I shall not accept your unaward by accepting said award. What do I have to do?

    1. I am delighted you are accepting not getting the award. I thought that would appeal to you! Maybe you could not accept Sisterhood of the world blogger award! Yes I am not all you might have thought. My daughter made it home but is not the type to enjoy my poetry or blog! In fact last night after a little wine (which i do enjoy!) I did let slip I blogged about her phone. Reaction was not favorable… And the phone is in fact dead! My post later has photos of the greatest place in Ireland which you could definitely picture whilst sending snail mail! In fact that mail may arrive before email as connection is a bit of an issue there.
      You are supposed to
      1. display logo
      2. link to me!!!
      3. nominate 15 others.
      4. list 7 things about yourself.

      Enjoy! it is a truly tedious process.

      1. The logo says very inspiring blogger. Is that the same thing? Maybe I’ll just take the sisterhood one. I certainly don’t exude inspiration over at donofalltrades. Well, maybe a little.

        1. oh you inspire me alright. I have not been able to get my doc martins, and all they represented to me, out of my head since your post on selling your bike!

  2. Thank you so much for the nomination!! That’s very sweet. I don’t like writing about myself either. Although I do all the time, but that’s in the context of my story. . .even though technically I guess it’s not cuz it’s still about me. . .Any who, thank you! Ooooo. . .I can rhyme! Ryhme? Rhyme? Rime? That word looks weird doesn’t it?
    Swimmer huh? I was also a swimmer in college for a short time at UNLV (University of Nevada, Las Vegas). Fun times! I LOVED swimming! Great job on your awards! Your blog is great. You deserve it!

    1. Very happy to nominate you. I always enjoy your blog.
      And do read the part that says you dont have to pass it on if you do not want to.

  3. Dear 1tric,

    Many thanks for nominating me for the Most Versatile Blogger Award. I am not sure if I really deserve such honor, and yet I do appreciate your kind consideration and gladly accept the award. I have always enjoyed reading your posts. They are always, with no exception, thoughtful and thought provoking, down to earth, and most importantly, rejuvenating and refreshing, always connecting the reader to the real world.

    Itric, your posts have surely brought happiness to many. Please keep up your good work, and I shall continue to read your blog with interest. Have a great day!

    Deo Volente

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
