I’m a Finalist!

I made it. I’m a finalist in four categories in the Irish Parenting Bloggers awards. I’ll fill you in better tomorrow (when I put down my glass) but I really wanted to let you all know asap, especially all of those of you who took the time to nominate me, I’m beyond thrilled, and if truth be told, hugely relieved tonight.

I am a finalist in the categories Best blog post, Best personal blog, Best writer and most inspirational blog (I can’t get my head around that last one).

If you wish to check out my opposition you can do so here I am really up against it, but happy to have got this far. The awards are Saturday 25th so not long to wait.

    1. Thanks Emily. The competition is fierce and intimidating. Delighted to have made it this far though. Best of luck to you too and congratulations.

    1. Haha Colleen. Love your enthusiasm. I felt the exact same last night. Today I feel mainly relief as I knew the competition was fierce so I feel lucky to have made it.

    1. Thanks a million, and a big congrats to you too. I really feared not making any final as there were so many strong blogs. Such a pity you can’t join us on the night. I suppose it’s a bit far to fly for a night out. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Beth. It meant more than I realised to make a final, so I’m over the moon to make four categories. I’m really up against it now though, but regardless we’ll have some mad night on the night.

  1. How wonderful and well deserved. I always look forward to your posts, so your nomination is hardly a surprise. To me, your writing captures the poignancy of parenting and rises from a foundation of love. I’ll be rooting for you.

    1. Thank you so much. One of the best things I ever read is if someone says they look forward to my posts, so you have made my day!

  2. Nice one! To quote the lyrical genius of Bell-X1: ‘May the force be with you because you’re worth it.’ πŸ™‚

  3. How dang cool is this?! Wow!!! I am so happy for you!! Doing a little jig now. (Actually I gotta go potty..but a dance is a dance, right?) congrats!! Bet you are hard to live with now!! Haha.

    1. Thanks Deb. To be honest I’m very quiet about it as I’m still in shock and the competition for next week is very high, so my expectations are low. I am however also doing a very happy dance inside, so I’ll join you there. πŸ™‚

        1. No it’s a closed voting system, which is even more scary as there is no one going to win because they have lots of followers, winners are decided by merit. Yikes.

        2. Haha. It’s actually a great system, and really fair, but I’d love to be able to smuggle you in to vote. πŸ™‚
