Pappy ( my Granddad) was from Ireland and is buried there. We used to go regularly to Kerry when I was younger but I hadn't been for at least 12 years... 

Last week I went over with my parents and their dog and went around some of my favourite places. I also managed to buy a mirror for 95 euros, but that's another story!

  • If you ever go to Kerry I can recommend you go to Dingle (we stayed just outside by Inch beach). Murphy's has the best ice cream flavours and you can go on boat rides to see Fungie the dolphin
  • The South Pole Inn (not that far outside in Annascaul) has amazing photographs of local boy and former owner, Tom Crean who was on the Discovery, Terra Nova and Endurance expeditions. 
  • You should also check out the Skellig and Blasket centres - I've not been to either set of islands but you can find out lots about them in the centres and they do tours. One of the Skelligs is going to be in the new Star Wars film!

Cross stitch necklace

Today was my first day back at work in 2014 (I took the rest off - it was lovely). I thought I'd make a bit of an effort and put on boots, tights and a skirt as well as the above.

The necklace was a christmas present from Ve, she made it! Isn't it amazing! You can get the necklace hoops online or from some craft shops she said.

Why a bike you ask? Well partly because of the time I fell into a parked car attempting to cycle and also because she maintains all I need to be 100% hipster is a fixed wheel bike! The cheek of it...

The first Monday of the year is apparently the most depressing of the year which is a sad way to start isn't it! My day was pretty good although I managed to rip my skirt (nooooo!).

P.S. I died my hair last week, it's a bit darker than usual - thoughts?

Moving playlist

Moving is all done!

The whole process was a pain, the person who was going to take my room pulled out so I ended up re-advertising which took a while ...  It was nice to have more time with the short commute but for a few weeks there I felt like I was stuck waiting for things to happen, then luckily we found someone nice and then there was the whole moving whirlwind.

I've still got some unpacking to do but I'm pretty much done and all my stuff is here now. It's weird living beck home but much easier than staying over Christmas etc. because all my things are here (I do like my things).

At some point I'll set my Etsy shop back up but probably not until after I've gotten used to my commute!

Richard II, blankets & Kingston

This weekend I've mainly been working on the big purple blanket; it's a monster and I think it'll take me most of the year but it's going to be beautiful... 

Besides that my parents came up Saturday with my brother for us to go see Richard II with David Tennant in! It's a great production ... if you can get tickets. My brother said they had cut bits of it out but it still works and Tennant is great as the vain mislead king and the set is amazing! 

Today I went to Local Hero in Kingston with Roisin for a natter and a rather lovely sausage sandwich. Kingston was pretty much sponsored by Cath Kidstone over Christmas - lot's of pretty polka dots!
