Awards Season AGAIN!!!

Ooooooh!!!! Yay! My humble blog has been the recipient of TWO more awards this week!!! Thank you so much to Nicole at the young mama blog for my second Lovely blog award (It's down in my awards section). Now for some cut and pasting...

The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are:

Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Here are my choices:

Okay, So I'm slightly altering this one and using this as an opportunity to highlight some of my favourite blogs, new AND old:

1. ArtyFeminist : I love her. She is one fab mama with a GINORMOUS brain and loads of creativity and passion to boot! Not to mention some scrummy recipes...

Right, from now on, may have to cut and paste some descriptions as girsls are making those horrible "We are waking up soon..." noises.

2. Feminist Childbirth Studies reflections of a literary scholar, mother, and aspiring birthworker on pregnancy/birth/parenting, our culture's (often-disturbing) stories and assumptions about reproduction and women's bodies, and birth's astounding potential for power, passion, beauty, humor, subversion, romance, healing, and joy

3. Freelance Mam

Okay, the hyperlink went mad so I'll write about freelance mam here. She describes her blog as "
My efforts to establish myself further as a writer, amidst the chaos of two small boys and a day job"

I describe it as lovely! Full of useful information as well as great stories.

4. PositivelyNeuroticMe

FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY!!!!!!!! And occasionally so heartbreaking I cry... Amazing woman, amazing blog. Need I say more?

5. Jen's Rantings

She reminds me of me. I love her. Does that make me vain?

6. WannabeDad

Okay, So I think I gave this to you before but I really think more people need to find you:)

Numbers 7 and 8 already have followings in the ridiculously high numbers, but on the off chance you haven't found them already...

7. Xboxfornappyrash

It is not fair for one man to write so well. I am very, very, verrrrrry jealous of his talent :)

8. Let's have a Cocktail

Verrrry witty woman...

9. HotCrossMum
'I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than a housewife’s badly-cooked dinners and untidy ways'. (Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, 1861)

10. A little Messed up
Congrats on the Pregnancy and the fab blog!

Right. I'm going to break the rules and stop there as I still have another award to get to and one of the babies is waking up...

Thank you Hot Cross Mum for the "I love your Blog" award. Hee Hee! I love yours too! I also love tinygreenmama, madmammy, mommybrain, and sunshineandbubblegum.

Now for seven things about me!

Actually, I'll have to do that later. Baby number two is up and wanting some mama love!


  1. Aww, thanks for the award!!! I'm glad you love my blog :)

  2. Thanks so much for passing this onto me. There are loads of blogs here that I haven't discovered yet so will check them out as soon as the tiny ones are asleep and I have a glass of something to hand! Cheers and well done on your many awards! :-)

  3. Bravo to you on your awards...and thank you for sharing with me!

    Love your list...looking forward to getting to know some new bloggers.

  4. Thanks for the nod ... nothing like a little bloggy love to help me recover from my glucose debacle :)

  5. P.S. I'm asking since you're in Ireland ... do you happen to know the music of the Speks, traditional nursery rhymes arranged with an Irish flair? I just discovered their CD, and I reviewed it on my ToddlerBrain blog ... thought you might have some input since they are from your neck of the woods :) What is Glasses Island? Is it a REAL place?

    Link to the review/giveaway, in case you're interested: http://toddlerbrain.blogspot.com/2009/09/spek-tacular.html
