Okay I mentioned that I bought a bottle of Gordon’s pink gin at the weekend, I tried something and oh good lord guys! I got the best tonic water I could get my hands on (Fever Tree) and a lovely ripe Pomegranate, got all the seeds and juice out and poured myself a shot and a half of the gin.. I think it’s the nicest drink I ever tasted there’s something about pomegranate and red berries! TRY IT! You’ll get 4 G&T’s out of 1 pomegranate, just scatter in a couple of juniper berries too and you’re laughing! The juice especially makes it!
I’ve posted so many posts about alcohol that one might start to worry..😂 I’m actually just a bit of a gin buff, a nerdy hobby of mine. Last week I invested in two more bottles, I got my hands on … Continue reading
Girls, we all know how hard it is to buy presents for men, given some are easily pleased and want video games or clothes. When asked, my my husband’s reply is always “NOTHING! We’re saving for a house, put the … Continue reading

I’ve always been a bit of an Art History buff, regularly visiting the National Gallery when I have time and I was really excited when they completed the work on the Dargan Wing and forecourt at the gallery. The re-opening … Continue reading

Hi guys, it’s been a couple of weeks, sorry for the lack of posts but I have been all over the place, trust me! My husband recently turned 40 and myself 35, I was planning a big party for the two of us and it was a fantastic evening, it also happened to be the hottest day of the year and of course I made a chocolate cake- that was fun let me tell you(not)!
I took the week off work to try and get our apartment sorted, well, I told myself it would take two days but who was I kidding, I was bleaching voile curtains, shampooing the rugs, I was like a woman possessed.
Anyhow, the party was a great Success, my friend and blogger buddy Norma from The House That Will came to stay for the weekend and I introduced her to one of my favourite spots, Killruddery house, we simply had a blast of a weekend and I got over the panic.
It’s been a bit busy at work the last two weeks too so I’m just getting around to open my laptop again and get back to the blogging.
I’ve a blog post coming up over the next two days about the party so watch this space!
