Spending my day off ironing and trying not to stare out at the rain too much so to distract my self from both for a while have been listening to music and daydreaming of sun….

Also had a gorgeous meal in Dillinger’s in Ranelagh at the weekend…it was my first time there but not my last, I fell in love with it…the staff were friendly, helpful and professional(my thing is how staff handle glasses)…the decor was fab and there was a good atmosphere but most importantly the food was tasty….didn’t try dessert this time so will have to go back soon…
Happy Friday…and what a nice Friday it was, I went for coffee and waffles with one of the girls this morning in Arabica before taking a trip to the bookstore to buy Patti Smith‘s book Kids. After this I went out to the Radisson for a bit of pampering, I got a facial and a pedicure….I remember reading somewhere the it is important to treat yourself (with a facial or massage) at least once a month to reduce or eliminate stress so I am all for doing this…..I was totally relaxed after this and I met himself for some food in one of my favorite places to go La Cucina , tasty italy food and then we went to the cinema to see Source Code with the lovely Jake Gyllenhaal but unfortunately despite Jake being in it the film was not great but here’s the trailer….
Here are some nice pictures from the week……
Have a lovely weekend…..
And listen to this….
This morning I was in Dublin for work and before heading back to Limerick myself and one of the girls Becky stopped into Avoca http://avoca.ie/home for Monday treats and a leisurely stroll…..
The store is so pretty with loads of lovely things from books to clothes to furniture….some of my favorite items are the lovely garden pieces….
For the birds....
I also loved the collection of unique china teacups and saucers which are new in….
But the sweetest thing about the store is all the edible goodies and the sweet house. We drooled all over the sweets here and I came to the conclusion that I want a room like this in my house…….
Next we went up stairs to the cafe and had some tasty cakes….
apple pie and baked cheesecake
We then drove home full and happy with some jelly babies for the car……
Music for a Monday….

The Cordelier Club – Don’t Let It Go By
