Beach & an event in Lusk

Hiya ! Smile

Another weekend I have to tell you all about.

Friday night, Dermot and me and a few other colleagues from work went out for a few drinks in the pub. It was good company. I enjoyed. You need a little night out every now and then even if I am not the type anymore of going out.

Saturday – Dermot and me went to Dublin after lunch. We arrived in Swords at around 5pm and walked aroung the Pavillons Shopping Centre for a bit. I got new ballerinas and a few cute clothes for the babies Christening the following day.
After that, we went to Donabate and checked into the hotel. Lovely little hotel it was. It was called Waterside House Hotel.


It was a lovely little hotel I have to say and you can’t complain about the price you have to pay for a night… We didn’t have breakfast in the morning because the clocks have gone forward so we basically slept in longer. Lazy I know. Ha!

Sunday – We checked out at 11am and went to Lusk for the Christening. Dermot was the godfather so he had a big roll! Smile
It was mass at 11.30am first. Never went to it before because I am not religious but it was ok I guess. As long as I don’t have to do anything everything is fine with me. Lol
Then at 1.30pm the Christening began. There was 6 babies in total that got baptised. Maria did well so did Dermot.
After the event we went to a local pub. There was a function room booked and we had food and a few drinks. Good laugh. I could hold and play with Maria again and play with Emelie as well. The weather was actually amazing. We got really lucky. It wasn’t cold and it was so sunny.
After the food and drinks Dermot and me and everyone else left around 4pm.
We were back home in Sligo at 6.30pm.

Blog after the next weekend again guys.

Happy St. Paddys Day!

Hi Everyone! Smile

It is St. Patrick’s Day! Open-mouthed smile

I hope you all enjoyed yours. I didn’t do much for it to be honest. Had the day off today! Which I used for sleeping in. I got up at 11am though to get ready for the parade at 12pm in town.

After that we went to Dermot’s parents house and parked the car there because it would have been impossible to get parked in town itself. We took Julie Ann with us then and waited for the parade along with a lot of other people. It wasn’t the best one but it was something to do! Smile

Even Germany was in the parade Winking smile ( They were representing the IT Sligo)

Dublin was obviously bigger but I didn’t want to go there just for the day because I’ve got work tomorrow morning again and it is always mental when the Parade is on there. I was there twice! Smile

After the parade Dermot and me went to the Belfry to have a bit of food. I had a panini with chips and salad. It was heaven!!! I don’t really go for chips a lot but those chips were amazing!!! DELICIOUS I might even say! lol
Beside us were a band if girls who were playing traditional Irish Music. There were really good.

I didn’t plan on going out but I might have a little drink now actually! Winking smile


Shopping, Kids and Old Friends

Dermot went to Germany last weekend for his brothers stag party. I decided to come to Dublin with him so I can mind his other brother’s children.

Drove down the Thursday (10th March) which was Dermot’s birthday.

Flight was leaving the Friday morning. I was awake that morning anyways because the baby was crying. Got up early then. Didn’t do much that day because the weather was awful. Mandy and me went to the church with the baby to register her for the christening. Other than that we watched TV the whole day and ordered Chinese in the evening.

Next morning – Saturday 12th March – Got up early again and helped with baby Maria, feeding etc. She is such a cutie! Smile

For 11am I went to Swords which is only 10mins away from Lusk to meet my old friend Danny who I haven’t seen about at least 2 years!
I went to her house and she made pizza. It was yummy. We watched “The Nanny’s Dairy” and “What A Girl Wants”. In between that Sindy dropped by with her boyfriend as well. I haven’t seen her since about 2 years either.

I went back to Lusk at around 5.30pm. Watched a few kids programmes like Peppa Pig and Dora the Explorer. Fed baby, played with her, helped with the bathing of Emelie and Maria and then Mandy’s friends were coming over. Ordered Pizza from Pizza Hut. I haven’t had Pizza Hut in ages. It was delicious. Winking smile Bed time at 11.30pm.

Next day Mandy, Emelie, Maria and me went to Swords to do a bit of shopping. After Emelie got treated with a Mc Donald visit.

Back to the house at 3pm everyone was tired. lol I had my suitcase packed already so we watched a bit of CSI and criminal programmes. I haven’t really watched them before but I have to say they are pretty good so I will probably start watching them more now! Smile

10.30pm Dermot and his brother arrived back at the house. A few minutes later we left Dublin to go home. I know, late, but I had work in the morning.

Brilliant weekend I had! Smile Really enjoyed and it’s good to do something else than just sitting at home all the time.
