We are trying to decide what outfit to wear on Christmas Day

Wednesday, December 14, 2011


Almost finished my christmas shopping but debating do I buy a new outfit? or wait until the sales.

Tuesday, December 13, 2011


Christmas is here the tree is up, the decorations out and we had our first dinner party and lots of fun.

Friday, December 9, 2011


Its time to get out and shop, parcel, send cards and put up the decorations. I'm having a dinner party tomorrow so I'm a busy little bee in the kitchen today.

I'm stuck in bed with a cold wearing a wooly jumper but the one benefit is I'm doing my christmas shopping from home have bought a phone, paintings and makeup from all over the world so the only thing feeling sorry for itself is my credit card.

Feeling a little seasick today even though I'm not on a boat

Saturday, September 17, 2011


Its the weekend time to watch Ireland play Australia in rugby. Come on Ireland you can do it.

Friday, September 9, 2011


Its the Rugby World cup and ladies much as I do enjoy watching rugby I am going to have to live, eat and breath it until its over. I will have an uncommunicative husband and son who will leave indentations on my couch, shout at the telly, act like referees and anaylise every last point. I do wish my New Zealand friends the best of luck but I would also like the Irish to do themselves proud.

This post is dedicated to my friend Mary who sadly passed away last week. I will miss the girlie chats, long phonecalls and gossiping. The chinese nights where we sorted the world out and drank and ate too much and where our stomach hurt from laughing too much.I will miss you.
