It’s a day off the A to Z blogging challenge today so just a couple of things I have to tell you. I probably mentioned already that the photo above came 4th in the Irish Met Society competition of 2012. Well I got the prize during the week, it’s a really cool Galileo Thermometer. I’ve always wanted one of those so I’m delighted.
The other thing I have to tell you is how much money was raised from the Sligo animal charities jumble sale. The sale was very well supported, by donations, volunteers and customers, and the end result was that we raised 1943 euro! This has been divided between the three charities (Sligo Animal Rescue, Kath’s Kitty Corner and the Sathya Sai Sanctuary), and 100 each has also been given to Little Wings bird sanctuary in Banada, and Maureen Scanlon’s independent dog and cat rescue efforts in Gurteen. Thanks so much to everyone who helped and to Diane and Steve for organising it.
Yesterday we went to visit Shells Little Shop in Strandhill, they’ve opened it right next-door to their wonderful cafe. It’s a great little place, Lucy said it’s like a mini Urban Outfitters. There are all kinds of cool and quirky gift ideas as well as some wonderful food. What more could you want? Best of luck to them, I hope it does really well.
