I don't know if you know this, but one of my dreams has always been to sell my art work. And finally, after many years of being complacent, I have had my first designs printed and they are now selling in my Etsy shop.
I'd like to say a huge thank you to a lovely lady called Emma, who I had some coaching sessions with, who encouraged me to work towards achieving my goal. I wouldn't have done it without her guidance.
So, if you haven't yet bought your Christmas cards, and would like to pick up some of these cheeky ones to make your friends chuckle, you can find them at my Etsy shop.

On weekends we always make a point to make nice big breakfasts and sit around the table to eat together. It's not an effort, because we both really like our food, it's just something we look forward to. Our breakfasts usually revolve around eggs, bacon and sausages, but there are variations to it. On the weekend pictured we made pancakes with our bacon and eggs and had syrup to drizzle over it. Oh my, it was delicious!! Orlaith likes no frills food and had the pancakes on their own.
We haven't been spending much time at Warren's lately with all the studying I've been doing, I've had to stay at home on the weekends writing essays and revising for exams. I have my final exams next week then I'm off for a month. I absolutely can't wait to have that time off and get back to out cosy weekends and big breakfasts around the table.

Jeepers Creepers this has been one heck of a busy week. Essays, projects and deadlines, plus my lack of being able to concentrate on anything right now. It's always great to get a day off to relax and, if at all possible, have a boogie. Which brings me to last weekends antics. Me + my family + fancy dress + a big dance floor + the Ghostbusters. It was a perfect Sunday!
The dress code was 80's and the event was Future Cinema's Ghost Busters. We wiped the dust off my mums 80's glasses, put on some ridiculous clothes, ignored the strange looks we got on the way to the venue and when we arrived we knew it had all been worth it.
Since the moment we arrived it was mayhem, there was an anti ghosts protest, the Ghostbusters car was cruising down the streets, there was a reporter coming around and interviewing people plus so much more. We were in fits of laughter even before we entered the building.
The experience is so hard to describe without yapping on because there was so much going on. To try and sum it up it was a show with actors in the characters of the Ghostbusters cast, plus a screening of the Ghostbusters film, kind of at the same time, followed by a disco. All the actors came around all the tables and interacted with the audience in character, all speaking in thick New York accents, and partied on the dance floor with us, starting big coreographed dance routines that everyone could join in with.
There was a disco, a bar, New York style street food and everyone there was in some kind of fancy dress. It was great. Orlaith loved it and we loved it. I can't wait for their next show so I can book tickets! If you'd like to book tickets to see the Ghostbusters in London you can visit their website here. And FYI this is not a kids show, in fact they only have specific dates which kids can attend, this is a great day out for adults too.
And here's a short video of my brother rocking his moves on the dance floor!
