Irish Blog Awards: the outcome

We had a great night at the awards last night! There were loads of people there, great atmosphere, goody bags and a fantastic theme of "Rick for President" (the host) and had great clips of George Bush with great voiceovers to introduce each award. It was fantastic!

Unfortunately "Ruth's Kitchen Experiments" didn't win the Best Food and Drink blog: the award went to the incredible Italian Foodies. Congrats Lor & Bru!

However I did end up winning a DVD player in the prize draw which was really rather cool!

I got to thinking on the way home about how I don't need an award because I already feel like a winner with this blog due to the fact that people read it and more than that, comment on it! I've found a great community of people who are so encouraging, supportive and just great! Thank you everyone!

Also Dell from Cooking and the City has been so sweet and awarded me a "Nice Matters" award! Thank you Dell!
