Monday marked the return of the glorious babe Clare Duffy to Dublin, for the first time since Christmas! Girly times went into over drive this week, starting with a day of Tallaghfornia on Monday followed by some cocktails made by the cripple Rfp! Tuesday night was spent stuffing our faces with 4 in 1's from San San's a salad finger delacacy at this stage!
On Saturday me and the girls went back in time to Whealans to try relive our youth, it was so good went out at ten, got our stamps and down the lane we went which was actually the best part of the night, can't beat a few tinnies down a lane like! Then we went in for the rest of the night and it was just as good as it always has been! Only sad part was Hyland not being able to walk out on the ledge she always used to be able to do, poor form!
Well first week in the new job is going well, I'm learning the tricks of the trade from Al Bundy this guy knows a thing or two about working in a shoe shop. I hope to be as good a shoe sales assistant as him someday....
Here he is in action
Also we have these sweet "jeffrey campbell" boots in for fiddy blips, seriously considering buying a pair instead of the real deal, get a load
Look at me one week in the place and I'm plugging them on the blog
OK so weekend bant started on Friday night after my last day working out in Dundrum, got told on Friday that I got the deputy manager position in Korkys on Henry street so I am quite chuffed!! Really becoming Al Bundy at this stage!! So I celebrated with these lovely ladies on Friday night we went to Pyg and The Globe and we all got lost! Look at us all there in our leathers, like some sorta bike gang
Then woke up early on Saturday morning and remembered Eimear had told me about Ritzy Rags one fiddy sale, so I gave her a text and was on the bus within a half hour, stayed out on Friday night so Eimear kindly brought a hangover kit on the bus with her, which included dry shampoo, hairbrush, make up and ice cold water! What a woman!
The one fiddy sale was amazing and I got these gems
Got this mans blazer thank god cause I was freezing in the clothes from the night before
I went a bit scarf crazy
Got this shirt and two other scarves for my nanny and ties for Seamus for his new bank job. Eimear went tartan crazy!!
Me and Eimear then went to see a movie at the Jameson Film festival, can't remember the name twas good though, Eimear fell asleep! The rest of Saturday was spent being lazy, Maria came over and we watched Tallaghfornia SO SO upsetting!!
On Sunday I spend the day sleeping and making a good luck card for Seamus
For Saturday morning brunch, yes that's right I said brunch (only because I woke up a tad late and decided to be real posh) I cooked these bad boys! They were real quick and easy to make, chop up a few sun dried tomatoes and place them in the bottom of the ramekin, break an egg on top, add a few herbs then pop them into the over for 20mins or so and voilla! Next time I'm going to cook them in a giant mushroom cause I'm a mushroom fiend!
Few treats for the poorly Maria!
Went to visitMaria on Saturday night with Susan and Katie, baked her a few treats some cookies, which I cannot take credit for got a cheeky Betty Crocker mix which was real nice! Then I got some Oreos and dipped them in white chocolate with some red food dye so they were lovely and pink and added in a few Hundreds and Thousands!
Euro Shops are GREAT!!
Headed into town today for a bit of window shopping that quickly turned into actual shopping when I found a new one fiddy or less shop in the Ilac centre where I got 90 cake cups, a pie tin, 3 cake stands two sweet cardboard ones and one metal one, old school kids cup cake baking set and yes it is Toy Story and a sweet glass jug all for ten fiddy!
And this satchel wasn't found in the one fiddy or less shop, got this out in Dundrum in Urban Outfitters it was 63euro and I picked it up for 12 blips!!!!
Setting off on our journey into the mist/Sugarloaf
Trying to avoid the mud........as we did not have the proper footwear on, HUGE MISTAKE! We looked well but
Havin a little break, and trying to suss out what path to take next, because of the mist and mud we kept switching pathways and getting confused
Tuck and Louise climbing ahead into the mist
Finally at the top, where we could barely see anything
Flask of tea and sandwiches to celebrate our victory. After the Sugarloaf we headed to the lakes and had a wander, when we came across this tree, which looks really easy to climb but as we found out it wasn't quite as easy.....
Damn you Tuck
After our exploring we went to Avoca for a celebratory bowl of soup!
