A few weeks ago I was shameless.
I asked those who read my blog,
would they please consider nominating me,
for the Irish Blog Awards.
A big thank you to one and all,
as I have made the long list in two categories.
Best new blog, and best personal blog.
Now before we open the champagne,
I think everyone who got nominated made the list!
Regardless of that minor detail,
I would like to say a big thank you to you all.
Even though I write about my life daily,
I found asking for nominations very difficult,
and a bit embarrasing.
I am so grateful to anyone who took the time,
to fill out the form.
Just tonight I discovered,
that someone nominated one of my posts for “best post”.
It was a post I wrote called
“Can I trust him with my child?”.
People who follow my blog,
will know that I had a difficult time as a teenager.
I do not regularly share that period of my life,
nor do I speak about it’s effects on me very often,
as I do not feel it defines me.
However sometimes I do,
as in this post.
I do not know who nominated it,
but if you do agree that it is a good post,
you might consider checking it out,
and if you would like to vote for it,
feel free to do so.
The link is here.
(embarrassing myself again, I’m getting good at it!)
There are other posts there too,
you might like to check out,
from other bloggers,
which you might enjoy even more!
Regardless of whether you do or don’t vote again,
I would like to say a big “Thank you”,
Since I started writing this blog,
at the end of January,
I have enjoyed meeting you all,
and am most grateful that any of you,
have stuck with me,
reading “my thoughts on a page”.
Go raibh mile maith agaibh.
(thanks a thousand to you)
For those of you who follow or read my blog regularly,
she is home!!!
Music and perfume,
are once more permeating,
through every corner of the house.
Clothes are seeping out of her room,
and I can hear her voice and laughter live.
All is once again right in my world.
(And in case your wondering,
despite my best efforts,
I did cry at the airport).
