Happy Weekend ...

Hi All!

It has been a long and busy week here in my house so I am really delighted to see Friday arrive:) On a good note Conor  got his chosen place in college, which means I will have two boys going to Maynooth University next month!! This is where I think I need to get a full-time job .... definitely won't be buying much after funding that!! I also want to thank Claire at Another New Day for a lovely award she gave me last weekend. I hope you all  pop over for a visit to her lovely blog if ye have any time:)

We have two significant birthdays in the family this weekend, Tomorrow is the hubs and Sunday is our youngest Sarah! I think hubs will be pushed aside tomorrow as missy is having a few friends over in the afternoon for a girlie spa day! (only joking Philip)


Now for the time being I am going to relax and lovely daughter Laura is going to recreate a prawn dish she ordered in Spain! (see above photo)... That will hopefully be my delicious Friday lunch :) I will let you know on Monday what they were like!

Hope you all have a great weekend:) If anyone is visiting Dublin ,The Tall Ships festival is on over the coming days and it promises to be a fun weekend  for all!

  1. Well done to Conor it is such a relief when they get their chosen course. Love the prawns in garlic one of my favourite dishes. I went to the tall ships when they were in Waterford last year so will not be venturing into town. Have a great weekend.
