A few things….

13 Oct

Spent some of my day off trying to come up with Halloween costume ideas as October is flying by so fast…so far these are top of my list…







*however laziness might mean I’ll dress as a cat like thing as I have cat ears!

Speaking of cats, the cat at home has had five tiny adorable little kittens…trying to convince my housemate to let me take one up here, not going well…



The weather this week has been lovely so I have been trying to take full advantage of the sun by getting out and about for as many walks as I can in between work and shows…..

A few images from my walks…

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…..

Festive Friday…..

19 Aug

Festive Friday is a very sleepy Friday….I have been sitting in Cafe Moda in Rathmines for the last four or five hours drinking coffee gazing out the window…out last night for a Thursday dance popped into the Bernard Shaw and then ended the night in The Baggott Inn….drink of the night was climeberry!!

Saw Rise Of Planet Of The Apes last weekend and was a little disappointed with it to be honest but I guess there have been few different versions of Planet Of the Apes movies and of course there is also the novel….so when you know the story…

Have a nice weekend



Festive Friday….

29 Jul

Friday is here again and even better it’s the start of the Bank Holiday weekend….started the week in Dublin going for walks to Herbert Park, brunch in the Metro cafe and buying yummy things in Meadows and Byrne …..went onto Fermanagh to visit relations where we went for a trip to the Marble Arch Caves and had a lovely meal out in Bundoran last night to a soundtrack of Morrissey…..

Heading back to Limerick this evening before heading to Clare for the weekend with Philip, I am very proud of myself as I am very organised for the weekend having done up a mini itinerary to make the most of our time, or maybe just a little nerdy….

I have recently become addicted to pinterest which was introduced to me by andmybaby….it is a great source for lovely images and ideas….

Here are some finds from pinterest this week….

I will be printing this and leaving on the table…..

Have a lovely weekend
