Irish Blog Awards Finalist!

Yesterday was the day that the finalists were to be announced for the 2011 Irish Blog Awards. It was around lunchtime when the shortlist was made public so I didn't feel it necessary to check the computer straight after breakfast. However before heading to school Jack couldn't resist having a peep at Irish Blog Awards website. He came into the kitchen with a turned lip and gently said 'I'm sorry Mammy you're not a finalist'. I gave him a reasurring hug telling him that I was delighted to be short listed and even tough I was a tad disappointed I certainly didn't want this young man to feel anyway upset! I desperately wanted to see who had made the final and there were no surprises in the Food and Drink Category; all fantastic blogs that I always enjoy reading. I then scrolled down to the Best Newcomer Category and to my delight what did I see, first on the list  http://nessasfamilykitchen.blogspot.com/


A lot of screams and hugs followed and Jack couldn't believe that he had missed the Best Newcomer Category. We were all very happy - to say the least!! I would like to say a big thank you to Damien Mulley and the organisers of the Blog Awards, thanks to the judges and thank you to all who read this blog!

The awards ceremony will take place in the Europa Hotel, Belfast on 19th March so fingers crossed!
