I have been off for a few days so have been in Limerick getting spoiled by my parents and catching up with friends and as I said going to the gym, long may my fad continue!!

Got to get some eating at La Cucina in, some waffles at Caffe Waff and some live music from Hermitage Green in Dolans….

Sadly /annoyingly my New Years resolutions have not come into action as of yet but hopefully before the month is out, however I did go to the gym for a short while today….

Here are a few more pictures from one of  my walks I got out on during winter, by walk I mean leisurely stroll….

Happy Holidays…..

It was a lovely weekend celebrating Christmas and my Dads birthday…ate an amazing amount of splendid food, caught up with friends and family, listened to festive music and exchanged gifts-I am now the happy wearer of a unique Alan Ardiff Moondance pendant, I hope to start a little collection!! I spoke before of Alan Ardiff here

And of course Ab Fab was back this Christmas with a special episode lets hope they bring it back for good….

So Christmas is almost over (it is really if like me you are working tomorrow) but here are a few photos from my Christmas nights out, decorations, presents and of course the cats!!



Listening to (delighted that First Aid Kit and Hermitage Green have new songs out_)…..

First Aid Kit – the lions roar

She & Him – have yourself a very merry christmas

Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson – winter song

Hermitage Green – gibson

Also I must address the fact that I have not done a post in ages  there are a few reasons….the internet has been acting up, I’ve had no heating for a few weeks so it has been too cold to think or even type and I have been working loads….

 All photos either my own or found on pinterest….
Hope everyone has a lovely Stephen’s Day

Here are a few images from the internet and Country Living…..


Every Halloween I curl up with popcorn and treats (most likely bought for trick or treaters) and watch Hocus Pocus, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and of course Halloween so looking forward to my Halloween movie night, maybe I’ll add a few scary ones to the list this year….

My Week…..

1 Oct

October is here, one of my favorite months of the year but started of with non stop rain instead of the nice crisp sunny weather it should have to show of all of its lovely autumnal niceness….I am sitting indoors eating bagels and exploring the internet for tasty pumpkin recipes, I am thinking of going on a pumpkin inspired diet for some of October….

Tuesday was my day off and I did Ireland AM in the morning, view here… and spent the rest of the day strolling around town and meeting friends for coffee (we had an indian summer for a whole of two days!)….

Had a spot of car trouble when on route to TV3 on Tuesday, I pulled into the garage up the road to get a coffee and when I came back out my car sadly wouldn’t start, luckily there was a few gardai there at the time and after a few failed attempts of them trying to push start my car(much to the entertainment of the staff and other customers at the garage) they kindly gave me a lift down the road in the Garda car…so I arrived in style and in time!!

Went out to a gig in town last night for a while only say two acts both very good so will try locate them on myspace or somewhere…

Few pictures from my week…..
