I have another foodie blog to post but didn’t want to do two in a row so in between all that eating (and trying to make tomatoes red) we’ve been out and about trying to make the most of what’s left of the ‘summer’. I use the term summer lightly as its bloody freezing! The Mullaghmore Donkey Derby took place over the weekend so Jono and I went to see the donkey show before it.
One of the donkeys was very fond of Jono! While we were in Mullaghmore we also visited the Peace Gardens there which is one of the Secret Gardens of Sligo , there were some really pretty flowers there and even a few bees buzzing around.
I also enjoyed looking at the wonderful job done at Eithna’s By the Sea. It really brightens up Mullaghmore, I think it’s brilliant.
In other news I was delighted when I went into Chapters today and there was a Fleadh hoodie waiting for me! If you follow me on twitter you will know I was complaining about the cold when I was in Sligo taking photos at the Fleadh and I really wanted a hoodie as they were so warm but I couldn’t afford one so a very kind soul left one in Chapters for me. I’ve no idea who it is so if they are reading this thank you so much. I have it on at the moment after being frozen by taking part in the ice bucket challenge!
The blog awards short list came out today, I didn’t make it but I wasn’t surprised. I’d been nominated in the photography category and I don’t think this is a photography blog. It’s mainly me waffling on with photos in between. I was surprised that Lucy’s blog didn’t make it though, she was nominated in the best newcomer blog and I thought she stood a really good chance. I know I’m biased but I think her blog is great.
If you are waiting for another food related post, it’s coming up next.
I love to read your posts! You are always so enthusiastic ! It is great to read you and I really want to go to Sligo to go at least a bunch of the places that you described so well in your blog.
