Is Summer on its Way???

Hello Everyone! As some of you already know, I was really lucky to win a place on the Blogging your Way e-course by Holly from Decor8. I enrolled yesterday, so I am looking forward to starting it on Monday. It is a long weekend here in Ireland for Easter and I get an extra day off work too which is good. The weather is fabulous here with the sun shining. Yesterday I was out and about, below are some photographs from my day. Have you any nice plans for Easter?

Some shopping & being busy

Here are a few items I bought about 3 weeks ago. I have been looking out for a nice bag since Christmas and came across this satchel bag a few weeks ago and decided to buy it. It is from River Island. The jumper I picked up in Heatons for €13.00 which was a real bargain.

I am finishing up my course this weekend and my written assignment is due on Wednesday, I have it more or less completed now. I am delighted as I hope to have more free time to enjoy myself and also get ready for Decor8 Blogging your Way e-course next week. I am also looking forward to Easter and the weather improving. What have you been up to lately?

Winner of Blogging Your Way e-course

It has been well over a week since I last blogged. Things have been hectic with me between working late and doing a part time course at the weekends, I have no free time to myself. To top that off, I have now come down with some virus and have spent the day in bed and on the sofa. So as you can imagine I am really under the weather and to top that off, I have a deadline for an assignment and training session for my course for the weekend after next.

The good news it though, I entered Holly from Decor8's Blogging Your Way e-course contest to win a place on her next course and guess what??? I WON- I am delighted as I have never had the opportunity to participate in an e-course and envied everyone who got the chance to take part in Holly's Blogging Your Way Course. If you haven't heard about Blogging Your Way, you have to visit the website. The course focuses on creativity and writing with heart, soul and passion.

Decor8 is my favourite blog- full of wonderful images and content- really interesting and personal too, so if you haven't checked it out yet, you must start following it.


Sorry for the short post but when I am feeling better I will be back...

Two Things to Interest You this Weekend

Hello everyone, have you any nice plans for the weekend? I am busy these days with work and I am also doing a short course too. It takes a while for me to get use to doing 'homework' or 'assignments' when it is years since I was at college. It is important for us all to up skill ourselves though! Here are a few images and items which may be of interest to you this weekend.

1. The Wild Atlantic Way (WAW), If you haven't heard about it yet, you will! And you will have to check it out! It is said to be one of the most exciting touring routes in the world, covering 2,500 km along the west coast of Ireland. It will offer memories of a lifetime. So check it out on Tourism Ireland website for further details. It has not yet been officially launched and as far as I am aware there will be website for it too. You will hear and see lots of things about it where ever you are in the world!

2. Lambing and Calving Season: again I'm sure you all know that the Farm is brimming with life now with Spring in full swing. I love the wee baby animals and here are a selection of my images of the farm. All the calves are ours and the lambs and pony are our neighbours- I took a few photographs from across the fence. Bet you wish you were a farmer's wife when you look at these images :)
