Feeling the love

So it’s Valentine’s Day – usually a hallmark day but today has been absolutely wonderful. Firstly it was Bloomin’ Fabulous Vintage Tea Party in aid of the Sligo Rape Crisis Centre.

I made a hat – it was pretty shite to be honest but I tried. I made the SRCC logo and a little teapot and teacup out of clay. I also stuck biscuits all around the hat, well I tried to, a hot glue gun doesn’t work on food….but it does work on hands and hats!

The tea party was just lovely, the food was amazing…especially the Nutella cupcake – oh and the coconut one. The people from the centre were so welcoming and friendly and the Leitrim ladies adopted me – thank you ladies for making me not feel like a Billy no mates as I usually do. Tina won the hat competition with her beautiful mad hatters hat made from a lamp shade and covered with gorgeous handmade fabric creatures and tea cups etc.

After the tea party I went to my friend Jacintha’s house and she told me to sit down and played me a video – it was messages from people wishing me a happy birthday, along with some of my photos. I was gobsmacked, it’s the first time in a long time that I could speak and then she gave me presents including a fabulous hamper from The Food Centre and vouchers from Osta, The Blind Tiger and Heart’s Desire. I was so surprised that Jacintha went to so much trouble and that everyone was so kind to me. I don’t think I’ll ever recover from such kindness. Thank you all so much and it’s not even my birthday until Saturday but wow what a way to start the celebrations.
