I received some more blog awards over the past few months. Felicia from The Peasants Revolt nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. The lovely, Sandra of SS Book Fanatics put me forward for the Fabulous Blog Ribbon Award. Laura Thomas of the always entertaining FUOnlyKnew blog, passed along no less than 4 awards to me: One Lovely Blog Award, Beautiful Blogger Award, The Don’t Do A Damn Thing Award…I Just Like Your Blog and the Inspiring Blog Award – (need to take deep breath after that). Finally, Jane from Is That You Darling awarded me the Wonderful Team Membership Award. Much appreciated, ladies.
As you can see with the haphazard way the blog awards are below, I still haven’t worked out how to space pics properly on WordPress!
Now, I can’t keep up with all the rules for each award, so I’m just going to mention 5 things about myself and pass these awards on to five great people.
I like to pour a packet of Maltesers into a packet of Tayto (Irish brand of crisps, or potato chips for you Americans :)) and eat them together.
My sister, Lucy, is due to give birth today. Poor Isabelle, my 2 year old niece is in for a shock when they bring the baby home!
I’m enjoying the supernatural series, Haven, at the moment.
I am a Backstreet Boys fan.
I’m releasing a book of short stories in time for Christmas (well, fingers crossed).
So there you have it, 5 little tidbits about me. I’d like to pass these awards along to Debra Kristi of fabulous Immortal Monday fame, Kitt Crescendo who I only met recently, but now I’m an avid follower of her blog, Kate Wood who keeps me well informed on myths, legends and goddesses, Serena Dracis who has fun and intriguing posts on UFOs, ancient megalithic structures and much more, and finally, Tiffany A White who keeps me up to date with what I should be watching on TV. I love seeing new posts in my inbox from these girls.

Congrats. Keep up the good work.
Aww, congrats to your sis and fingers crossed for the book! 🙂
Thanks, Silvia. She’s really tired and is hoping the baby comes along by the end of the week. The book has just been sent off to beta readers. I’m hoping I can have it ready for December.
I bet… Awesome! *I can’t wait to know more about it*
Forgot to add: Congrats on the awards!! 🙂
You can tell how loved you are by all those awards. 🙂 Congrats! And I hope your sister is well.
I think people just ran out of bloggers to give them to! I will pass on your well wishes, thanks.
I so did not run out of people to pass my award on to! :p LOL I happen to like you, your blog and visiting both. *crosses arms over chest* Hmph! Congrats, Emma. Have a super weekend. 🙂
Ha ha, thanks, Sandra. Much appreciated. Have a great weekend yourself x
Congrats! But, ‘N Sync was way better than Backstreet Boys! 😀
Cheers for the award, Fel. You see, I think I’m a wee bit older than you. My younger sister and her pals prefer ‘N Sync, but my crowd followed the BSB. That being said, I love “I Want You Back”.
I’ve got your book on my TBR list. It sounds amazing. 🙂
Hope you will like it, Anya.
Congrats on all the awards – – and the arrival of a new niece or nephew! 🙂
Cheers, Mae. Hope you’re enjoying your book tour.
Wow, girl! Look at all those awards. How does it feel to be so loved? 🙂 You made me laugh with your comment about WP spacing and award rules. Loved it! Great bloggers to passed the awards on to. And me, gosh. I’m sooo honored! And now I get to check out all these new blogs that awarded you, too! Yay! Can’t wait to see what you come up with in time for Christmas.
Thanks, Debra. You deserve the awards. Serena says you’re one of her favourites!
Congrats on your awards and soon to be arriving new neice or nephew. But come on, New Kids on the Block rule! NKOTB!!!!!! I’m just glad nobody knows me here, so this will never be used against me 🙂
Do you know that NKOTB and BSB have been on tour together for the past couple of years? They even came to Dublin and I missed them. I’m so regretting that!
Congrats on your awards, Emma and thank you for passing one on to me! I am honored! It may be a little bit before I pass mine on, but I promise you I will! Great choice with Debra Kristi, she’s one of my favorites. I’ll have to check out the rest, I’m not familiar with them, yet. 🙂
You write some of the coolest posts around 🙂
Congrats on all the nominations and the newest family member! The awards are much deserved. Enjoy your family. I’m honored that you selected me to be one of the people you chose to share with!
Thanks Kitt and you’re welcome. I always enjoy reading your posts.
Congrats on your awards and to your sister on her new baby! But… Backstreet Boys? Really!? 😉
Thanks, Carmel. Yes & why not BSB? Don’t you have any embarrassing boy band crush you’d like to share with the world?? Come on 🙂
I loved them as a teen. I think I even had one of my first kisses at a disco to “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” 🙂
Cool facts Emma, the Maltesers one especially. That sounds so random, I’m not sure I would like the taste of that. 😛
I really like Haven too.
Maltesers and cheese and onion crisps go surprisingly well together. Haven is getting so exciting but I feel sorry for Audrey. She never catches a break.
Way to score! Haha, nice job, you deserve ’em 😀
Yay! Congrats on the awards. I love getting to know you more! My husband is way into Haven, too. I think it’s a weird show, but I kind of like it.
Congrats also to your sister. A new baby is very exciting.
Thanks, Tameri. I only found Haven recently and I love the characters. Lucy’s still waiting for the baby to show.
