Someone, who shall remain nameless gave me this story today. I am not into all this love lovie types of poems and stories. I hated the book The Secret and find books like the Last Lecture self centred and pointless, they teach me nothing about me. This short musing made me think, life really is […]
It’s beoming like game to me.How many roadworks can I spot in one day in the town of Carlow?Here’s another one in the Dinn Ri car park.I asked them what they were doing.“just scitting” they replied immediately.Or maybe, I made that last bit up.
The Ploughing Championships have returned to Athy for the 2nd year in a row. They cause great excitement for farmers indeed. The traffic is chaotic and all accommodation is booked out. Carlow Town is being dug up at the minute. Everywhere you look, there’s a roadwork, builder scratching his head or a JCB. I hate […]
I can’t keep up with the amount of new coffee shops in Dublin.This place is on Dawson Street with bright orange and warm brown surroundings, it is a very relaxing place to spend a few hours.The coffee is excellent. The Barista knew his stuff. I observed him for a while. Very efficient. The coffee house […]

We’ve lived in Carlow for about 7 years and about a year ago, Crotty’s Bakery reopened in a brand new location on Potato Market. Everyone I had spoken to was nostalgic about it, I was […]
Looks tricky but it just takes a while to make! Having a friend over for dinner and she is luckily getting a piece of this and White choc blondie brownie. The remainders go to Simon’s school tomorrow!
I knew it was going to happen.One day.I hate wasps. I hate the look of them. Their thinness. Their pokey little stinger at the end of their body. The colour of them, bright yellow and black, the noise they make, the way they zoom in and out and interrupt a vey nice soirée outside, I […]
Terry and Marion had popped over for a cuppa to visit us so we all took the train down early enough, grabbing a quick espresso at the train station. The journey took about 2 hours. Pescara train station is pretty big with plenty English magazines and books. We had no idea how to get to […]
