May we…

May we raise children who love the unloved things, the dandelion, the worms and spiderlings. Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards sun… And when they’re grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the ones.

Family confirmation meal

We had a great night out with the family. Just got home 10 mins ago.
we went to cork international airport hotel. Thats a 5 star hotel. There were a bunch of us, about 40 people in total.
We had an amazing time there. The food was so yummy. We were celebrating my sisters partners cousins confirmation. The little girl whose confirmation it was, molly is her name, she was beautiful.
We all got a 4 course meal. A starter, main, dessert and then tea and coffee.
I had a bacon and mozarella croquette for starters, it was served with salad.
Then for main I had steak, which came with fries, mushrooms, and pepper sauce and it was absolutely mouth watering.
For dessert I had apple crumble with ice cream and custard. Again that was sooo delicious. I am stuffed now. I’ll have to really cut back on portion sizes for the rest of this week. I will just have to try so hard to be good with my food and make good food choices. And mind what I am eating.
It was a nice evening though. I am glad we got to go.



So mom and dad and me just got invited to my sisters partners cousins confirmation. Its next week, on Thursday.

We were invited to the afters of it. I think its a meal somewhere. Not sure where yet as they don’t even know themselves where they are going.

That’s exciting. It was nice to get invited. We always get invites to my sisters partners family events. I wasn’t surprised when this one came today.

Lucky I am not working on Thursday. I did offer to work that day but Brenda didn’t need me she said she had enough people to cover that afternoons shift.

I had already put some money in a card for the little girl. I put 30 euro in a card for her.

It will be nice to go out. Something to look forward to. I’m going to enjoy it.

Children are…

Today’s Quote:
Children have this amazing way of becoming exactly who we tell them they are. If we tell them they are strong, they become strong. If we tell them they are kind, they become kind. If we tell them they are capable, they become capable. Speak life into your kids, so they will have what it takes to tackle their own life one day.

Ready to shop until I drop!

Lol! We’re off into killarney town centre to shop until we drop!
I am excited to look around and maybe buy some new clothes. I normally dont enjoy clothes shopping, but since I started losing weight it has become more enjoyable. Now that I can get nice clothes to fit me, I love shopping.
We’ll spend the day intown. Mom is going to partner up with me, and my sister is going to take lauren and davin, I’m sure mom and me will stop off for coffee along the way, mom cant walk too far before she needs to rest, because of her COPD.
I hope I can find a few new tops to wear. I need some new ones. I wish I had more money but I have enough, just that I wish I had a lot more hahaha.
AFter shopping we’re going for dinner, and then tonight my two aunts are coming to stay the night with us, it’ll be a mad house!
We had a nice big cooked breakfast this morning, a full irish. It was delicious. Really tasty.
I dont know how I’m surviving, as I’ve been up since 3:30 AM. I suppose I’ll be wrecked tonight, but I’ll manage, I’m not tired right now so thats good.
