Friday Findings

Friday, the last day of the ‘working week’; for some anyway. A mother, wife, housewife’s job does not have weekends off. I do not complain though as I enjoy my job, it just makes a good opening for a post. Last time I had updated we had been out for the day and Sol had […]

Gold For Best

The pantomime is finally over. Four shows that just happened to be a huge success, which is no surprised considering I am entirely biased toward my children and several of the cast who I know very well. So far there are no photographs to share, photography during the shows was forbidden and cast photographs aren’t […]

Game Of Thrones

We spent a little while touring around the north of Northern Ireland. We came across some places where the Game Of Thrones was filmed. We took loads of photos, I won’t bore you with them but here’s a couple. Balintoy, which was stunning and certainly helped by the fact it was a glorious day. The […]

Woodland Walk

Tuesday! Shirked off Monday and I woke up this morning feeling like I needed to get out of the house. Then I glanced at the sky and decided not too; it was dark and dreary. So I went about my business around the house, packed a couple of orders and basically just goofed about doing […]

Our village association planned a day of activities which was a huge picnic, happy birthday then lots of fun things to do. Of course it […]

Amazing

The weather this past few days has been glorious. The photos that follow are from the village where I live, I might be biased but I feel I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.         Sol found a caterpillar down by the beach, she brought […]

Continental Style

The continental market came to town. It was a lovely sunny day today so we decided to go and check it out. I only took Toni, Seb and Sol with me, we left the pup at home with my oldest child who is currently studying like a mad man for his exams. When we arrived […]

Sun, Sand, And The Wetlands.

What a busy week it has been for me, for us all really. Last weekend the weather was pretty good and we spent a few days on the beach. Not sunbathing beachy stuff, but dog walking and playing in the sand weather. The puppy loves the beach too which is just as we’ll considering we […]

Snow Day

A couple of weeks ago we had snow.  I regretted so much that I didn’t get any photographs I actually wished for more snow.  You see, where we live the last time we had snow was two years ago, the time before that was ten years ago.  So when I missed the opportunity to take […]

Washed Away

The weather today is dreadful.  That statement is an understatement!  With much of the UK on flood warnings all I can say its pretty darn cold and wet. We braved the rain yesterday, I needed to go to the bank to pay my wages in and Toni wanted to spend some of the money she […]

Round Up

The last couple of weeks have been a blur of going out every day for some reason or other. I’m not sure if I could recall it all and publish it here on my blog. Easter was interesting, we spent almost every day that week out soaking up the sun. We spent a day in […]

Tropical Beaches

The weather here last week was glorious! We spent a few days on the beach just soaking up the sunshine. Who would know we would have a paradise beach here just a couple minutes from my house. Love it!

Walk from Groomsport to Orlock

I love where I live. Its not until you are forced to make decisions which are life changing that you really appreciate what you have. My husband has been offered a job in England and it is, in theory, a step up for him. Originally we were to be off by the 1st of march […]

We Do 4th July Here Too

Our village hosts a huge 4th of July event every year. We met up with another family and enjoyed a good evening’s entertainment followed by a brilliant fireworks display. There’s not much else to say, I took a few photos and wont bore you with them all.

Deja Vu

Do you ever get the feeling of deja vu? Well I did today …. Long story short, I had popped out to Homebase to get some paint and wallpaper while leaving Roy at home. Roy was busy stripping in the bedroom while the children were occupied playing in their bedrooms. We got some great bargains […]

Round up in few words as possible

This is Monday again, start of the Easter holidays for our schooled counterparts. Every day last week I had planned on taking the children to the local farm and everyday it rained. The day it didn’t rain our eldest child was marching in Belfast with his Boys Brigade for their annual batallion parade. So today, […]
