Rockin' all over the blogosphere...


Blush, blush...Many thanks to the wonderful Christine and Kila who have both nominated me for a Rocking Girl Award. Does that mean they saw me rocking the night away on Saturday night, sipping my vodka and cokes and boogieing on down on the dance floor. Apparently not although I'm sure they'd award me something for my moves!

Christine seems to have more hours in her day than most and her blog covers many different aspects of her life. She has just started a food blog as well as her daily personal blog. Christine nominated me with the following kind words:

...another blogger who just got back from an awesome vacation to France. She takes the most beautiful photos and makes them into gorgeous montages. I love her writing style and her sense of humor. She lives in Ireland, which is one place I’d love to visit one day.

Kila is another amazing mother who manages to fit so much into her busy days I think that she must survive on about three hours sleep. Kila has three boys to run around after and she is studying as well as being involved in her community. I get tired just reading about her busy life.

Now I have to award five other Rocking Girl Blogs (sorry Willowtree and John that counts you out). This is the bit I hate as there are so many of you and I wish I could award you all one but I'm sure the awards will get around to everyone at some point.

My first award goes to my amazing mother, (who else). I started blogging as a way of sharing my daily life with her as we miss each other. I still wish she'd move to the Emerald Isle though.

Sam is also the best sister a girl could have. I am in awe of her blog, the photography and the food she now eats, (you should have seen her as a child, so fussy mum despaired she'd ever eat properly)!

Frannie rocks because she gives so much of herself to help others, always putting them before herself. Sometimes I want to wrap her up in cotton wool and give her a rest from her busy life. When I was on holiday she kept me updated with little comments which I was able to read and keep in touch with her.

enidd is one girl whose posts always make me laugh. Now she has moved to San Francisco I'm really enjoying her humorous posts on life in the US.

Hellojed is a fellow Irish blogger who gave up work to write a novel. I love reading her daily updates on how the novel is coming along, some days are good and others not so. I also love reading about her life in Dublin and the funny links she posts.
