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.

Congratulations!!! Wonderful news!
Thank you Lucia. I’d a ticket bought for the finals so it’ll be good to go there in hope!
SO WELL DESERVED!! Congratulations dear Tric: you can use the Award Teapot as an imaginative and unique wine decanter 😀
Thanks Emily. The competition is fierce and intimidating. Delighted to have made it this far though. Best of luck to you too and congratulations.
Hot diggity doin’ a jiggity! Drink a glass for me! 🙂
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.
I had no doubt. 🙂
Thank you. I’m delighted.
Congrats, and as everyone else is saying, very well deserved. The competition is fierce.
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. 🙂
I also have to host a 9 year old’s birthday party the next day. So probably just as well.
Fabulous Tric, great achievement. MM 🍀
Thanks MM. I’m well pleased today.
yay,yay, yay, yay. crossing all of my fingers for you, tric )
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.
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.
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!
Congratulations times four!
Congratulations Tric, so well deserved 🙂
Congratulations! Delighted for you and not a bit surprised 😉
Nice one! To quote the lyrical genius of Bell-X1: ‘May the force be with you because you’re worth it.’ 🙂
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.
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. 🙂
Do we get to vote?
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.
Well that just isn’t fair!
Haha. It’s actually a great system, and really fair, but I’d love to be able to smuggle you in to vote. 🙂
I may not blend in well…😜
That is so cool! I hope you receive the award. 😀
Thanks Jackie, not sure I’ll get an award but fingers crossed.
