Bike Accident, Shopping and Award

Leiny was involved in a minor accident on thursday last, on her way to college she was in a collision with a car, she has bruises and sore muscles, her bike is totally broken. We were all shocked and then so happy it was not any worse.

To cheer her up we went shopping with Ana yesterday to Cath Kidston in Kildare Village checking out gift ideas for Leiny's birthday at the end of the month.

There are plenty of bargains to be had and so much choice, I got a mug and tea towel for tea break in work.

Vale at Les Cotrions kindly added me in her list of awarded for the Your Blog is Fabulous Award, thank you very much Vale, she has made some really pretty looking candles (and fantastic smelling I suspect) and recently she made amazing chocolate covered lemon and orange candied peels. In accepting the award I must choose people to award and reveal things I am addicted to.

The Award goes to:
Deborah at My Mom's Work, she completed a fabulous St. Brigid's Sweater and has brought Seamus O Gnome to life.
Elly at My Everyday Things, her scrapping is so inventive and inspiring, I love the fabulous red and white work she does
Michele at the fabulous Cowboys and Custard who has worked so hard on the most incredible cards and badges
Jojo Caramel at Jojo Caramel fabulous artist designer and great photographer
Louise at The Whispering Poppies vintage lace and ribbons that are really fabulous
Abbie at The Vintage Moth a fabulous resource blog I have just discovered
Lulu at Coastal Sisters who is so creative and inspiring, her pretty jewelry is fabulous
Sharon at Manamoon a blog full of love, ideas, and fabulousness

I am addicted to blogging (I love to visit all my blog friends,leave and receive comments and have a browse around new blogs)

How scary for your daughter (and you!), I'm v glad to hear she's OK, if a bit shaken up.

The mug and tea towel are lovely, wish I could go shopping but as usual I've blown the budget at the start of the month and it's weeks til I'll be getting anything new!

Well done on the award, Mel xxx

Congratulations on your award! I'm so glad Leiny is on the mend. Thank you for always leaving such lovely comments on my blog :) You were right about the snow, it did travel north to us but it has also gone with none lying on the ground. Keep warm!

What a story, will give you a freight. Good te hear she is alright now.

The shopping looks like great fun what you all needed.

Vee said...

If the bike is totaled, I'm sure that you are very grateful that your daughter is okay. How scary for her! I can't even imagine. Hope that the shopping helped...what a pretty mug!

Oh, this is a silly question, but your daughter's name is so is it pronounced? Anything similar to Leonie?

I'm so sorry to hear about Leiny's accident Margie, that's just dreadful! The same thing happened to my eldest son several years ago and we felt the same way, so immensely thankful he was alright. Hugs to Leiny♥

Thank you so much for the beautiful award! I'll post about it as soon as I can and I just adore the lovely items you purchased while shopping.

Enjoy your week my dear friend.♥

Hi Margie,
I am so sorry about your daughter. It's so scary when we can't just be nearby all the time keeping them safe.

Congratulations on your award. I love exploring new posts, and there are some links that I haven't seen before.

There is a Cath Kidston in Kildare? Oh...I have to go and visit. I love your blog and am so glad to make contact with other Irish bloggers. I'm off now to browse your lovely blog some more! Best wishes...Pam

Thank god she is ok! Bike accidents are horrifying affairs. Los Angeles accident attorneys estimate dozens of fatalities a year in the LA area alone. I am so glad everyone is ok!
