Birthday & Holiday

Well it's finally arrived its holiday time and as it is raining and utterly miserable outside  I cannot wait for a little sand on my toes and sunshine. We are back to Portugal again as we has such a great time last year.

Tomorrow is my big birthday I cannot believe I will be 50 (first time I have written that) . Actually I do not mind in many ways I feel healthier now than I was at 40.  I do think age is in the mind there are plenty of people in their twenties acting like grannies and people in their 80's acting like children.  I look forward to a happy and healthy time in my 50's.

I started the week with a lovely lunch in Avoca with my sisters which was so enjoyable we do not do this often enough. Tomorrow night I hit the town with drinks at the Shelbourne followed by dinner in town with friends.

I have to finish my packing, organise the house, cuddle the dog and tick off my long list.

I may take a little break or I might drop by.  Hope you have a lovely weekend.

This will be me

My lovely present from Chupi

A lovely Etsy scarf

Lunch with my sisters a great start to the week

Avoca never fails to deliver great food. I had a gorgeous beef curry.

Lunch was followed by some retail therapy . First stop was the Cos shop recently opened on Wicklow street.

See you soon and thank you for your lovely comments.

It's another bank holiday weekend here I know you are right do we ever work.

I had one of thoese days today my keys, phone , bag etc got locked into the house with Rocky and everyone was away. Luckily I had my clothes on and not my pj's that would have been a little to much to bear. But I got back hours later had some coffee destressed and enjoyed the rest of the day.

I am not going to our summer house this weekend as I have lots to do for my holidays and I also have to get ready for a big birthday this day next week.

So as I am missing the sea I thought I would do a beach themed post of pictures I just like.

Have a fun weekend.
