Tin Man

I love this guy, I pass him fairly regularly, he’s up on the wall on North King St.

I dunno who he is or why he’s there, but he’s just so cute.

St Patrick’s Weekend

Oh, I do love a long weekend!

March 17th was St Patrick’s day and I had a lovely weekend wandering around the city enjoying the sites and the live music on the streets and the atmosphere in general.

Went to the Presidents of the United States of America play in Vicar St on Saturday night too, brilliant gig, they put on a great show and drank (in one go!) three pints of Guinness on stage.

Lots of strange sights and sounds around, my favourite being the old buildings that were lit up green for the weekend, they looked stunning!

So, a belated Happy St Patrick’s Day to you, where-ever you are!

Wicklow Mountains

We went for a drive around the Wicklow Mountains last Sunday, it was a beautiful sunny day and the snow on the mountains looked like icing sugar had been dusted over them.

We drove up to Turlough Hill, which is actually an ESB power plant, built in the 60’s these photos don’t do it justice (it was very cold!!) ,but it’s very sci-fi/James Bond.


To cheer myself up…

Feeling under the weather while getting over my wisdom tooth removal and unable to leave the house, I decided that some online retail therapy would cheer me up.

I’m not gonna lie –  I spoiled myself rotten during my splurge, however this is one of my favourite buys…

It’s one of those “snap” bands that are straight until you snap/slap them over your arm to wrap it around. 80’s tastic or wha’?.

And yes, I know I’m an adult (technically), but it’s so cute!
