A quick catch up

IMG_0036I 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.

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!

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.
