This afternoon I braved the continuing crummy weather and met up with my good friend Julie for lunch. I’ve known Julie since we were teenagers, which now feels like a very long time ago, and I love our catch ups! As Julie has lived out of Ireland for the last few years it was my… Continue reading Ladies who Lunch
Today I went into full on Christmas domestic goddess mode. Not only did I make 2 batches of mince pies but I also made 9 jars of delicious Seville orange bitter marmalade. And now I’m exhausted! I started off with the mince pies, I make mine dairy free and if it wasn’t for the small… Continue reading Christmas Kitchen Craziness!
They may seem a bit cheesy but I love festive photos! Having a sister who is a photographer is very useful, particularly for any big life events or festivities. It also means there is no awkwardness on our part being in front of the camera, I don’t mind it much but I know Isaac can… Continue reading Christmas Photos!
Today my sister Phoebe and I did a bit of Christmas shopping. I ordered a couple of things online and had the option of collecting them myself from the company’s pop up Christmas shop. The shop is in the middle of a housing estate so I was expecting it to be a little room with… Continue reading Christmas Shopping Trip

If you got that Grey’s Anatomy quote you get a virtual high five from me! As I said in my last post I was on set today on a police drama. I had a small speaking part as a nurse and although it was indeed a beautiful day to save lives, my poor patient didn’t… Continue reading It’s a beautiful day to save lives
I have to start off my first apologising for missing day 9. I was filming an outdoor “ident” for UTV Ireland, followed by a very long and delayed wait for a bus home in the rain and cold. By the time I got back, had dinner and relaxed a bit I was so exhausted and… Continue reading Christmas TV Shoot
I love when all the Christmas songs start coming on the radio in late November/start of December. I have Christmas FM permanently tuned into my car radio and wait for the day the station goes live again and the air if filled with happy festive songs. I know most of them are cheesy but they… Continue reading My Top 5 Christmas Songs
Today was a typical kind of Monday where, to be honest, not much happened. You know, the kind of day where you have to get bits and pieces of work done that you really didn’t fancy doing but you had to anyway. However before all that had to be done I managed to do 40… Continue reading Food Shopping Haul
Sadly today was our last day in lovely Galway, but no amount of wind or rain could spoil our time there. We were staying in the Radisson Blu and enjoyed every minute of it, everything was just perfect. And before we left we had to fit in one more delicious meal! So we patiently waited in… Continue reading Goodbye Galway
