award accolades, sickness & some beautiful tunage.

You'll forgive me if I sound grouchy, ticked, tired and 'Mom-like'. I've been up for a few nights with my 2 year old who has developed a case of "death-bed sick" during the night, "runs around normal" during the day. Typical kid sickness stuff, but man - it sure is beating the crap outta me. And coupled with my mother's sticking her damn nose in "advice", it's just been one hell of a week.

I have numerous people to thank - and really am grateful for every single person who thinks to bestow any kind of award on me. I have four people who need accolades from me, links posted & general kudos-ness.
The first - in no particular order - is from "The Practical Mom Guide" who graced me with the SUNSHINE AWARD. Thank you - & a great blog site, should you feel the need to check out how to save money, live frugally - all that jazz. Then a muchos gracias goes out to Valerie, who gave me the "BOGART AWARD" - my first. :D
Jana from (love her name!!) Boobies, Babies & a Blog gave me my very own, much coveted "ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD" (yussssss... much love Jana) & finally the very suave site of Adoption Of Jane gave me something. But has hidden it - as I can't find it, lol. No surprise there, I'm always losing things.

In order for me to accept these awards I have to do a bunch of stuff - and nominate a bunch of people, and only due to time & a coughing baby is why I'm skipping this step (I will get back to it. Just not today.)
But a big thank you, lots of hugs and a smattering of kisses to the ladies who run these blogs & considered me worthy - I'm humbled :D

Um, I have some really cool giveaways coming up, which I have to start Monday as I've gotten those angry "Where the heck ARE you" emails (mike) so I'll do my thing, impress the hell out of you all and get back on here, of course I'm going to leave you with a youtube cos that's how I roll :D

Today felt very '9 Crimes', (and if anyone knows what tv show this featured when a main character was shot - she was deaf and Stanleys sister which just gave it away, I swear. I'll worship you just for being sunglasses cool.) and I recently sent this to a friend, & it's finally managed to calm me down, so enjoy. I'll see you tomorrow - I'm out.


this is my favorite version of this song, for the first time ever. Damien Rice - 9 Crimes, LIVE from ABBEY ROAD! I seriously have a thing for guys with accents .... english/irish HAS to be the very best. kills me.
