My Weekend ....

Happy Monday!


Hope  you are all good. We had a lovely day on Saturday in Dublin.  It was blue skies all the way, a perfect morning for shopping in the city. At last I have made a start with some of mine!!


Renowned chocolatier Barry Colenso working on the clock.

Whilst in Dublin I brought Sarah over to see the unveiling of the chocolate clock in Clerys department store. It is a replica of the old clock hanging over the main door of this iconic store. A lot of romantic dates would have taken place under the clock in bygone days.

It will remain on view instore for ten days. A competition is also running to guess the weight of the clock and win a gift voucher for a thousand Euro.


I did buy the above dress in Mango. I think it will be perfect for Christmas day as it is not to fussy yet still a little dressy.




Our decorations appeared out of lofty heights yesterday so the annual dressing up of the house is taking place. I only got the kitchen/living area done as there was an issue with the lights (as usual) for the big tree, and as the rain was bucketing down yesterday no one volunteered to go out for new ones so it is down to moi to purchase them this morning:)

Hope you all have a good week!

  5. I'm amazed by the wonderful chocolate clock and your dress looks ideal for Christmas Day. I can never understand why the lights just don't all work when they are brought out of the box again!

  8. Hello Anne

    Your dress is beautiful and as you say comfortable, yet stylish.

    You brought back memories of Cleary's clock and a meeting spot. I once was "stood up' when I was but 16 years old and for future dates, I insisted outside Bolgers/Boyers, around the corner. I had more success at those stores. Hee Hee.
    I will be curious as to the weight of the chocolate clock
