Yay for the end of this year's 365 blog! After 2 years I think I'm burnt out, so I won't be doing another year. This means I'll probably end up posting more pictures on my regular blog, Pass the Potatoes, so check us out over there! Thanks so much for following me this year!

There's a crocheted coral reef display at Trinity's Science Gallery. I have to say, I love the coral reef, but this isn't really my thing.

I tempted the weather gods by going out without at least one pair of socks on for the first time in...oh...7 months!

I walk this way all the time and I've never noticed this superskinny building. I haven't seen a place this skinny since we were in Amsterdam!

Her two least favorite things: getting in the crate to go to the vet and getting her picture taken.

We went for a picnic at Ashtown Castle in Phoenix Park!

Sunday, 4 April 2010


We got all fancied up and went for an anniversary dinner at The Winding Stair. See?

The Chuggers are regrouping (pep talk included) before launching a full-fledged assault on Henry Street.

I bought an Easter posy today! Nothing says Easter to me like a nice, smelly Hyacinth.

In a way of getting my arse off the sofa today (and because I was too lazy to walk in with him this morning) I met Wes at his work and walked home with him. Look! Here he comes!

I bought myself some Easter candy today. They're not egg-shaped, but they'll tide me over until we go to the US and my parents bring me some! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T FORGET!!!

Snow!?? Really!??

Dirty, wet daffodil. Ahhh...springtime in Ireland!

Low tide on the Liffey. Stinky.

This cat LOVES plastic bags! She licks them, rubs them, claws at them, then climbs inside it to hang out.

I was in the bedroom today and saw a young boy outside pointing at one of the posters on the wall across the street. I was curious what the sign was for and sweet motherload KISS is coming to Dublin!!!

A gorgeous sunny (and warm!) day in Smiffy!!!

Wednesday, 24 March 2010


I made some chocolate stout cupcakes today (they're not frosted yet). The recipe called for Guinness, but this Corkonian household drinks Beamish!

The famine statues on the quays. I find them incredibly haunting. They're 'walking' towards the end of the quays where the ships would have been moored.

I've started doing an oil cleansing method for cleaning my face at night. I use 25% castor oil and 75% olive oil. I would have used regular old EVOO, but then I found this 'medicinal' olive oil at Boots. It was fairly cheap, so I picked some up. Last night was the first night and so far so good! I thought I'd wake up all greasy, but that wasn't the case at all!

Only in Ireland....

The in laws came to Dublin for the day and we headed to the zoo. The poor kid wanted to see the 'King Lion' so bad and they didn't have one. He was not impressed by the female lion at all.

Yay for spring and the beautiful window boxes that come with it!

Thursday, 18 March 2010


Yay for tiny daffodils!

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Best. Bread. Ever! There's condensation on it because it was still warm when I bought it. Yum!

Wes thinks she's spoiled. Whatever.

Potty training au naturale!

Some of the famous English Snowdrops that are out at this time of year!

Friday, 12 March 2010


I met some old work colleagues for lunch. Ben got a chicken pitta with a side of chicken. He thought the presentation could have been better....

I wasn't allowed to take a picture of David Sedaris, so I took one of Helen, Emma, and a very pensive-looking guy in the background.

Wednesday, 10 March 2010


The green jacket was out, which could only mean one thing - job interview. And no, I couldn't take my earphones out for a few seconds just to get the picture. I was listening to The Cadets!

Tuesday, 9 March 2010


I love you, Dave Matthews Band.

My camera has died and I have no batteries, so instead of not posting a picture, I decided to take an old picture and have fun with the photo editor!

Sunday, 7 March 2010


After a really nice day out in Howth (pictures here), we stepped of the LUAS to find this. Being that today is the first Sunday of the month means that it's horse sale day in Smithfield Square. Gross.

Saturday, 6 March 2010


 The weather was gorgeous so we went for a walk around Dublin. This is the Grand Canal at Portobello. 

Friday, 5 March 2010


It's warm enough to have the bedroom window open and hopefully air out the germs!

Does a candle make dinner romantic??

Wednesday, 3 March 2010


Woot woot!!! I can't wait to try it!

Tuesday, 2 March 2010


Saw this gem at Penny's. Be sure to stop by if you're a giant looking for footed pajamas.

We stopped for a treat at McDonald's today. Doesn't he look excited?? Ha! I had a chocolate milkshake and some french fries - a match created by the gods.

Saturday, 27 February 2010


Gemma and Oscar gave me these earrings and a matching necklace for my birthday. They bought them at the Gaudi house when we were in Barcelona.

Friday, 26 February 2010


Our 'gym'. Ha!

Under the portico at the Bank of Ireland.

A cloudy and soon-to-be rainy day on Grand Canal Dock.

Tuesday, 23 February 2010


This is an amazing fishmonger right around the corner from our flat. We've lived here for a year and today's the first day we've bought anything from them. Oops. What you can't see in this picture is that it's freaking SNOWING! Ugh!!

Monday, 22 February 2010


Getting stuff together for the charity shop and the clothes bank. I love decluttering!

Here is Wes trying to rebook his flight to Lisbon. He got up at 4:30am and went all the way to the airport just to find out it was cancelled due to about 5 cm of snow. The flight was already sold out by the time he tried this, so no Lisbon for him!

Wes made BIG promises of burritos at this new place on Baggott Street. We had to stop by his office on the way there and this is the view from his top floor office. We were starving as we walked up to the burrito place and it was CLOSED! BOOO!!!!
