What a wonderful night/weekend we had at the Irish Blog Awards 2009. The Cork International Airport Hotel was a fantastic venue with surprises around every corner. The staff treated us like Royalty and they were so very accommodating to our every need. I was thrilled to catch up with old friends and those who until that point, were just names on a page or twitter. Already I am looking forward to IBA10. Did I hear Belfast mentioned as the next venue?? I hope they are not thinking of Grannymar Gables as a venue, it is waaaay to small!
Thank you Damien and everyone who helped in the background to pull off a hugely successful Irish Blogathon*! Sabrina, once again did a Fantabalous job organizing the Ladies Tea Party. It was so good that two Toyboys gate-crashed to check up on me. It is ok 🙄 I kept them down on their knees – YES I DID!
Somebody organized that each category on the night was introduced with a short Video…
Irish blogger Grannymar watches the infamous 2 girls, 1 cup – but what’s the twist at the end? This video was made to introduce the best Food and Drink blog at the 2009 Irish Blog Awards and features Lottie and Raptureponies in shot.
Ciara Crossan suggests that we ALL dress up next year?! Kind of a 5th birthday celebration – Blog Awards fancy dress? Dress up in what they blog about – not sure I could go as a bottle of vinegar ❗ Or everyone could go along in what they wear while blogging….
I need to lie down…
get me my spray…..
I just had a vision of Ben Kenealy blogging in his altogether ❗
I finally reached home late yesterday afternoon with Tobias for company.
My little car served me well and I drove over 300 miles in the ten days. That did not count the extra mileage covered on the journey to Cork, or the hour not traveling anywhere just sitting on board an aircraft on the tarmac playing hunt the non existent passenger 166!
The evening passed in connecting my docking station, broadband & installing Skype, Twitter & MSN Messenger. My camera is not yet connected so the few photos I have from my trip are still in my camera. I also seem to have mislaid my folder of pictures. 🙁
Perhaps the George fella was expecting me to have problems. He kept my PC hard drive saying it had a problem. The only problem that I can see is I might have slipped back to using it… Well I don’t have it so must persist with Tobias. It was a cunning plan.
Later today I will try to locate my photographs and connect my camera. I also need to sort out user names and passwords, I seem to have oodles! I am hoping to make a good attempt at clearing my RSS Reader, I am so far behind with blog reading, so put the kettle on and I will pay a visit.
