it was so good. we went to a little restaurant in town. its called skuzies.
their food was amazing. i got a grilled chicken breast on a bun, with curried mayo, garlic mayo, bacon, and cheese. I also got fries with that. the fries were sooo good!
mom and my aunt both had dessert but I didnt have any. I was trying to not overindulge.
Mom got warm chicken salad for her main, and my aunt got chicken goujons and fries and a salad.
for their desserts mom had apple pie with custard and my aunt had pavlova.
after our meal we went and walked around town looking in some of the shops. mom was trying to look for confirmation dresses for my niece, since mom and my sister are taking her shopping on saturday to see if she can get her dress for her confirmation in march.
It was a lovely day.

Off to Kinsale tomorrow!

Well tomorrow, mom and me are heading to Kinsale! For those who dont know its a nice little tourist town in cork, well outside the city, but still in cork.

We’re taking a bus to get there. My aunt, moms sister was meant to be coming too, but she canceled, so its just mom and me.

It takes 50 mins to get there on the bus. I am excited to go. And I hope the weather is going to cooperate! Its meant to be nice but we shall see!

We’ll have a walk about in the town, maybe look in a few shops, have our lunch and maybe go for a long walk. I’m not eating out though I’m going to bring my own packed lunch. I want to stay on track with my healthy eating plan, so bringing my own sandwich and fruit is the best thing to do!

I’ll take some photos and post them to the blog! Stay tuned!


went In to town

I thought mom was coming over today. Then this morning out of the blue she rang me and asked me if I wanted to go into town to get my screen protector. I jumped at the chance, as I dont normally go in, and I didnt know when I’d be able to actually go in to the apple store to get it so the fact she offered was really nice.
I went to the apple store, and talked to a very nice guy in there and he sold me a screen protector for 30 euro! It was well worth that much, and he put it on the phone using a machine, and I have a 2 year warrantee with it.
The guy was so techy. He knew so much about apple products, I guess he has to, its his job after all. But he took a real interest in chatting to me about apps and stuff for the blind, and about how I use my I phone as a blind person.
After going to the apple store, we had a coffee, and I bought mom a doughnut. She picked a lemon one, but then she didnt like the filling in it.
After all that, we decided to go look around some clothes shops. That was nice, but I couldnt find anything that fit me so I didnt buy anything. I tried on lots of things, but nothing was fitting me how I wanted it to, and I wasnt going to buy something just for the sake of it.
Before we went home I had my lunch. I went a little off
plan, having a turkey and stuffing sandwich on a white bread roll. It was nice. Then we got a taxi home, mom dropped me off and then carried on home.
I am so glad we got to do this. I’m most thrilled that I now have a screen protector on my phone.


Awesome weekend!

I’ve had an amazing weekend. On saturday I went to the beach with my mom and my aunt, we had a great time there. We took the bus there and back. The weather was so beautiful. I even got sunburnt on my arms, neck and face. Its not too sore which I am glad about. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant, I did go a little off plan with my food, but I really dont care. All the walking we did will make up for me going off plan a little. We walked for 7.5 miles. I know it was that long as I counted it on my phone. There was a festival of the sea in the town so we walked around the town for a while, taking in all the atmosphere. It was lovely. Then we went to the actual beach. We walked the length of the bord walk along the sea front. Then we sat on the beach for an hour. after that we went to where they have a casino and we played the slot machines for a while. Mom won 25 euro but me and my aunt didnt win anything. Still though it was fun. We had a nice time and a nice day out. It was around 8 pm when we got the bus home. I really enjoyed the day. I was so tired last night that I was in bed and sleep by 10 PM.
Today was more relaxed. This morning I went grocery shopping with mom, I had to get my fruit for the week, my water for the week and a few other bits. My aunt rang while we were grocery shopping, she wanted to know if we wanted to go to a local garden centre to look around at the flowers, so we said we’d go with her. We looked around and then had coffee and it was a very nice day. After we finished there we went back to my aunts house for drinks, we’ve been there all evening. We just got home a few minutes ago.
I love weekends like this one. Making memories, having fun. Thats what life is all about IMO.


fantastic day in cobh

Well mom and me had a fantastic day in cobh today. We got the train there, we got there for around 11:30.

When we first got there we went to a little coffee shop, we had drinks, and a scone. I had a yummy vanilla latte and mom had a cappachino.

After our coffee, we walked to the park, it overlooks the sea front, we sat in the sun for a while, it was lovely.

We spent about an hour there, then we decided to walk around the town. So we walked around looking in the shops for a while.

I bought some ornaments, two dog ornaments, for my table in my hall at home.

We decided then to go to a bar and get a drink, so we went to a nice little bar, we sat outside, drinking our drinks.

We saw lots of tourists, and we got chatting to a group of american tourists, they were looking for somewhere to eat, we told them about a restaurant that is really nice, we were going to go there for food as well.

We walked there, and we were going to sit outside to eat, but the seating area outside was full up. So we sat inside, we had gorgeous food there, I had fiery fries, they had jalapenos on them, chilli, and mozarella chees on top. Mom had plain fries, we also shared a pizza, it was delicious.It had ham, mushrooms, peppers, and cheese on it.

We also got drinks, I just had diet coke, mom had an alcoholic drink, we were glad we only shared one pizza between us as we were stuffed after it.

After our food we went to look around a little titanic museum, I got to touch some of the luggage that was on the titanic, I also got to touch an old time phone, we had a look around the gift shop before heading back to the train station to head back home.

It was a fantastic day out. I am exhausted now. But so happy I got to do this with my mom. We made memories, and thats always so important to me.

We’re hoping to go somewhere else tomorrow. I hope we do. The weather today was awesome also. It wasnt very sunny but it was very warm still. It was just nice, not too hot and not too cold.


Happy Friday hallo to all!

Hallo guys!
I hope you are having a nice morning, afternoon or evening wherever you are in the world!
Its morning here now, almost 6 AM to be exact. I woke up early, I woke up at like 3 AM. Been up since, am showered, and ready to face the day now!
My PA is coming at 9 AM. I still have a relief PA. I still dont know what is going on with my regular PA amanda, I havent heard from her. Who knows if she’s even going to come back to work! Anyway Frances, the relief PA will be here at 9!
We’re going to go to the bank so I can do a bank transfer to pay for my new phone! I am going to get a taxi there and back. I would walk there, but Frances has to walk to my house, as she doesnt drive, so I am not sure she’d want to take another walk with me, so I will just take a taxi instead.
The weather here is beautiful today. Its dry and it looks like its going to be sunny too which I am glad about. Sun always makes me feel happy and it also makes me feel good!
When we get home from the bank I need frances to do some housework for me. She’s here until 11:30. Then I am going to go to my moms for the weekend. I am working today too in the afternoon. I will probably go in to work at around 2 PM.
This weekend mom and me are going to have a day out on Saturday. We were thinking we might go to Cobh, its a town close to where I live, its a 30 minute train ride away. We’re hoping that we can go there and enjoy lunch, and have a walk around and just enjoy each others company.
My sister goes on holidays tomorrow, she’ll be gone for 2 weeks, she’s off to the canary islands, I hope she’ll have fun but I am sure she will!
Well have a great day everyone!


Relaxing at home!

I had a fabulous afternoon! We all enjoyed the afternoon tea. What a treat! It was lovely. So much food too! It looks like there isnt too much of it, but when you start eating you realise there’s actually lots of food! We had sandwiches, and mini cakes, and scones with jam and cream. The sandwiches were filled with cream cheese and salmon, roast beef with horse raddish and lettuce, egg and watercress, and chicken and pesto. They were delicious. The cakes were delicious too. I had promised myself I’d only eat one or two, but my promise sorta went out the window, I ate way more than that. I couldnt resist. I am not going to worry about it now though. Whats done is done. I dont do this every weekend so a treat is ok. We also had tea and coffee to drink. It really was such a lovely treat. After our afternoon tea we went next door to the blarney wollenmills store, which is a store that is very expensive, but tourists shop there a lot, they sell lots of wool items. They also sell other stuff like dishes, and furniture and other stuff. I bought some oil for my defuser, ginger and lemon grass. It smells divine. It was 20 euro a bottle, but I said I’d treat myself to a bottle since I am out. After looking around for a while we left. We had to go to a local grocery store as I needed some fruit, water, and sweet potato fries, and then on our way back to mom and dads we had to stop off to get my dad some food. We’re only just home a few minutes. I plan on relaxing for the rest of the evening. I’m a little tired, so I might have an early night. We’ll see how it goes. I had a lovely day though.
