‘How’s your blog doing?’ This is the question I am asked most frequently by those who know I write, which isn’t too many in my everyday life. I think the vast majority hear the word ‘blog’ and think it is something I do which must make money. Commonly I’m met with confused faces when I… More How’s your blog doing?
Have you ever shopped in the dark? Would you think it’s a good idea? No I didn’t either, however I know a certain shop who think it’s a great idea. Are you familiar with them? They are a certain American fashion shop (featuring an A and an F in their title) who arrived in Ireland… More Who loves shopping in the dark?
I have a secret album. It has cost me nothing as it requires no printing, in fact it doesn’t even require a camera. I keep this album locked away in the recess of my mind.

I’ve been seriously let down and I think I may be psychologically damaged as a result. I’m quite a strong person but today I’m struggling and I’m sure I’m not alone.

Those of you who follow me on facebook will have read my plea for help last night. Can all of holy Ireland and those with any influence please call on the all seeing St Anthony to find my phone.

Give me patience! I read an article this evening written in The Guardian, titled,‘Fade to grey, why women should stop dying their hair.’ It has left me shouting at the laptop, so as my laptop appears to be deaf I thought I’d shout here instead. What is it about women that they need to comment… More To dye or not to dye?
So I’m home from visiting ‘my wee small boy,’ but feeling a little bit broken. So instead of a moany post I thought I’d repost an old one which hopefully you’ll enjoy.
