Well top of the morning to you hussies. I and my award ( thank you Sam) greet you in very fine fettle. Very hungover fettle it must be said, but rather fine. It is snowing and sunny, surely a sign of something.
You must excuse my tardy self and also my post today.I was out gadding about with some chumlies last night, very fine chumlies, trans-atlantic chumlies with hair that grows bigger after each drink. Very fine. Some rum was consumed, also some more rum, all manner of hooch in fact. Culture was discussed, dirt was brushed off shoulders, gingerism pored over, cross border social networking was dabbled in. Bars were closed.
It was a shame that I had to miss the award show on Satdee, but work is work and I had no option but to tend to it. I hear it was a cracking good night and everyone had a fine time. Congratulations to everyone who also got glassy awards and bottles of champagne, I very nearly opened mine last night. What a mistake that would have been, eh? And it SEEMED like such a good idea at the time.
I don't blog for any other reason other than a love of waffling. But regardless, it is still a glow in the dark moment to see that something I brought forth is appreciated by other folk. So I am particularly delighted to have won best blog post. Many thanks to all who took the time to vote me in, and even more many thanks to you lovely readers. I think I have a super little corner of the interweb,and it's real pleasure to hop on board everyday and venture about, cyber meeting folk and having yip yaps with all and sundry.
Now, I and my rum based pain must away to the kitchen for more coffee. Good day to you. You are all darlings and I heart you.

Congrats FMC!
Gotta say I do actually look forward to coming into work, doing the bare minimum and then prancing about your glorious blog for the rest of the day.
Very well deserved award.

T'would have been a disgrace if any else had won that. Would have been great to meet you. I bent the ear off Sam about how much I love your blog.

Enjoy the bubbly. I got a cab home with Twenty and for a nano second considered opening mine on the way.

Sense prevailed, thanks be to jebus.

I'll just have to make a proper weekend of it the next time.

Well done Missus, that was a fabulous bit of writing and it's good to know there's still people with sense and taste to recognise it when they read it. What does bubbly taste like as a mixer with rum?

I couldn't tell you, for once the ounce of sense held. Poor old Sam though. I believe she was speaking in tongue by the end last night.

I see TM won again. I wonder what information he has, to hold over the judges.

See his book's out an' all.

I'll probablly get it. Just to see how bad it is you understand.

Anyway, concerning you Miss Cat, quality will always out. I always say that. Don't I always say that?

It was the best thing about Saturday night. I salute you - with my very tired drinking hand no less.

Sam was ridiculously good natured for such ridiculous hours and ridiculous drinking.

She's an absolute doll. She's traveling today, I hope she's not suffering too badly.

Oh how I laughed when Sam started to speak and the people around us hissed incredulously "FMC is Scottish???"

This was a nanosecond after Sam had said "Ah'm no' FMC Och nay and for gud measure "Hoots""

Well done you stylishly absent winner you.

The creature on my head always goes crazy here.
You are a total babe, FMC and well done on the award. You had a very large fan section cheering for you.
I was, as you say, as hung over as a goat yesterday but he dragged my ass out to Howth anyway. No rest for the wicked.
