So yesterday I turned 50. It was a day where nothing was really planned but aren’t they always the best days? I woke up to banners on the house and car, flowers on the table and loads of presents.
I accidentally ended up in a writing group today. Well I say accidentally, I have previously toyed with the idea. There was one running in town but it was out of my budget. This one is run by Tubbercurry library and it’s free.
I love Shrove Tuesday or pancake day. I’d have to say it’s one of my favourite days of the year, you can keep Valentine’s Day as the pancakes win my heart every time. This year I was planning to do a pancake crawl of Sligo but Jono has a hospital appointment so I’ll do in next year instead.
There’s been a lot of doom and gloom around lately, I know I’m one of the culprits! So I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve liked this week – and don’t worry cake and chips don’t make an appearance because you all know how I feel about them!
Bloomin Fabulous, in association with Anderson’s Grill and Bar will host a Vintage Tea Party Fundraiser for Sligo Rape Crisis Centre this Valentine’s Day at Andersons beautiful new venue on Kempton Promenade.
There is an afternoon of imagination and wonder planned for all attendees filled with music, old fashioned romance, theatre, poetry, and tea.
Bloomin Fabulous’ JoAnne Neary will be joined by a host of award winning artistic talent making this an afternoon to remember.
• There will be performances by The Rabbit’s Riot Theatre Company and readings by Louise Kennedy and Mary Branley.
• You will be transported somewhere dreamy by Sarah Ferguson’s rendition of Moon River and Darktown’s sublime retro sounds.
• Bumper raffle with amazing prizes taking place.
• Prize for best hat ( and some have already started on their masterpieces)
Dress fancy, wear fancy dress or just come as you are.
Donations welcome on the door with all proceeds going to Sligo Rape Crisis Centre.
Every €25 raised enables the centre to deliver one hour of counselling or to deliver one hour of specialised trauma therapy training for their volunteer counselors. So please come and donate what you can.
Wednesday February 14th from 1 to 4pm
It’s a date!
Well it’s hard to believe that my little old blog is 9 years old! Those years fairly flew. The blog started as a place to get thoughts out of my head during a time when there was a lot of illness in the family and has kind of come full circle.
