The Morning After

Well I have been there done that and survived my first Irish Blog Awards. It was wonderful to meet so many of my fellow Bloggers and Pod-casters. We met and sat with the ‘Beautiful People from, well done and well deserved to win so many categories.

Bernie Goldbach you are a man after my own heart, what a wonderful gesture to hand your Award for Best Contribution for the Irish Blogosphere to Damien Mulley the Brains behind the event! The Standing Ovation for Damien showed that all present were in agreement with you!

I got to meet ‘Twenty!!!!

He really does exist. He shook my hand, didn’t use an ‘F’ or a ‘C’ word once while talking to me. Maybe that was because I had told him I don’t like them. Mind you he may change his mind when he sobers up and starts to Blog!

To all those who said nice things to and about me, to Elly for the eye makeup, Sin-in-Law for driving us on the night there and back (even through the RED lights) I say a Big Thank You! It was well worth travelling down to Dublin.

Normal service will resume when I get home and that might be midweek.

    Grannymar – it was an honour and a privilege to meet you.

    Commiserations on not winning the award.

    There’s always next year!

    I believe the it is ‘the taking part’ more than the winning that counts!

    Please folk keep listening, reading and making comments. That way I might convince myself that I am not talking to the wall

    Certainly not talking to the wall. I’m enjoying your blog very much.
    What I’ve read and listened to prompts me to ask if you’ve done any writing for the Sunday Miscellany programme on RTE? Your work would be perfect there I think.
    Good day, from sunny (today, at last!) Idaho

    Angharod, I have finally reached home after a very busy week in Dublin.

    I have never attempted or been invited to write for RTE.

    You are so kind to think that I am good enough for that.


A penny for your thoughts...
