I turned the big 40!

Its my birthday today, I am 40! Omg! I am 40! I cant believe that! I still remember when my mom turned 40, I was 23 then. We had a party for her at my aunts house and I still remember it like it was yesterday!
So well, what am I doing for my birthday? I am celebrating it differently to how I originally planned, due to the coronavirus. We’d originally planned a weekend in killarney with all the family, and we were going to have a big party and all. But we’ve put those plans on hold now until all of this is over and done with.
Instead we’ll have a birthday cake, and some drinks, with our parents. We got some lovely presents, including over 150 euro in birthday money, which we’ll use to treat ourselves to a few things, like getting our nails done, a pedicure, etc once the coronavirus stuff ends and lockdown is over.
We got some very expensive perfume from our sister, some audible credits from our friend norma, and norma is also going to come over some time soon too and we’ll have a special birthday dinner, it may just be a few weeks from now that we do it. We’ve been so spoiled, and so many people have wished us a happy birthday on fb too. Its so lovely and we are very touched by all the love thats been shown to us.
Thanks everyone for making our birthday so special. We love you all.

Sharing a post from a blogger friend

I couldnt reblog this for some reason, so I am just copying the text of the post here.
donnalee, who blogs over at laughing dakini territ reading blog, posted this on her blog just now.

The site features magnificent and diverse works of dancing, music, theater, all kinds of things, from the Metropolitan Opera in New York to the Paris Opera to many multicultural works, and they are free for all of us to check out. Enjoy, and they are always looking for more work to feature, especially if its performance has been cancelled due to the coronavirus reactions, so maybe your work can get there too, with this great international platform available.

Here are a few cute saying to brighten the day!

St. Patrick’s day is the best holiday for the environment. It’s the most green.
I hope you have to pinch yourself in unbelief at how amazing your St. Patrick’s Day is.

If you celebrate St. Patricks day too much, you get to celebrate hangover day the following day.
Most people dont know that St. Patricks day was invented to help get rid of the oversupply of green beer.. Its a good cause
What do you get when you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover? A rash of good luck.” -Unknown
I hope you enjoy your St. Patricks Day festivities. Make sure to wear enough green that you can avoid getting pinched by me.
Have a great day today!

Special family celebration

So we just got back home from celebrating my sisters partners sisters childs confirmation. We had a great afternoon. The whole family got together to celebrate it. We went to a hotel and we had a four course meal. The food was beautiful. We had a choice of 3 starters, 4 mains, and then the dessert was a mixture of things, there were 3 different desserts on the plate. I had chicken and mushroom volavents for my starter, turkey and ham as my main, and the desserts were profita rolls, cheese cake and a brownie. We got stuffing, mashed potatos, vegetables and gravy with the turkey and ham. We all had a lot of fun. There was another family there celebrating a confirmation also. We all had drinks as well as our meal, but I didnt drink any alcohol, I just had a few diet cokes. We took a cab home, I am staying in mom and dads tonight. It was a great day and I am well and truly stuffed now. I will really have to watch myself and what I am eating for the rest of this week. I didnt hold back tonight, I ate all around me lol. Oh well. You only live once, right?
