Colour week! Day 4 Green!

Being Irish I felt I had to go a bit overboard with Day 4!
I had so many wonderful ideas.
And then I realised that I forgot to but a memory card into my camera.
Silly me.
I did however find lots and lots of green today!

For example,
We had spinach with our dinner today.
It went into a lasagne.
Yum yum yum!


Both James and I feel that it is important to relax
and take time to let your mind sort out what is going on after a day of working.
I find that some incense, music and a dim light do wonders for the mind
and the soul.


James got this t-shirt in Lithuania.
It is of one of their national beers.


James' beautiful (and talented) nieces Katie and Emma made some fabulous Christmas cards.
James refuses to take them down.
Aren't the gorgeous!

My friend Erin came to visit us in Lithuania and she brought these mugs with her.
I love them!



The woods in Menlo.
They are so unspoilt, so green and so beautiful!


Our press full of green tea.
I kid you not, we have about 15 boxes of herbal teas.
Ridiculous.


I teach a Polish girl English and this is her homework!
I really should correct it rather than take its photo!



One of my most prized possessions.
.It is one of the symbols of Galway 
and the first gift that James ever bought me.
I love it so much.
The heart symbolizes love
The hands symbolize friendship
and the Crown symbolizes loyalty.
How you wear your ring reflects on your relationship status.


My house is full of maps and atlas' 
James loves them.
It is great as it makes gift buying a lot easier!

I hope you enjoyed the wonderful world of green!

Missing Marguerite. 14 years later.

On this day, 14 years ago, the world lost a little bit of its magic, when at 11pm, my little sister took her final breath and life changed as we all knew it. She was only 17 years old. 17 years and 19 days to be exact. As I sat here today reading all the lovely messages written about her, my heart soared with pride in the fact that in her short time with us, she managed to have such a big impact on so many people. Marguerite Mary O'Dwyer, an ambassador for mischief, mockery and for having a marvellous time. I miss her so much.

It is funny how every year there is something different that I focus on for the anniversary. I never choose my train of thought, I think the year since the last anniversary chooses it for me. Last night, I got fairly plastered on wine and when my other half went to his bed, I sat and sang along to every sad song I could think of. I had a wee chat with Mags before I went to bed and woke up this morning well rested and ready to seize the day. 
I got quite sad a…

Day 2 - 20 facts about me

I always struggle with challenges such as these, where I have to give some facts about myself. Can I think of 20 things and if so will they be any good? Pressure! Well... here goes....

1. I love letters. Not bills and what not, I mean real, news filled letters. I have a handful of people whom I write to, and they write back in return. Alas, I am not very good at replying in a timely manner! I have had penpals since I was about 11 years old. Two of which were from Belarus. Their names were Tatiana and Irena. One of the highlights of their letters were the wee boxed stationery that they used to write on. I loved it so much.
2. I dislike sheep. Immensely.
3. I have 2 tattoos. One of a fairy, and one of a fox.
4. I love ducks and foxes. And Hairy Coos.
5. I think puns are severely underrated.
6. My favourite book is Jane Eyre.
7. My favourite author is more difficult... maybe Jasper Fforde... though the compilations of Irish tales by Sinead DeValera have a special place in my heart as do …

Day 3 - My favourite quote

This is a tough one because there are a number of quotes and phrases that I try to live my life by, or reflect upon. I am not sure if I have a favourite.
My life  mantra I picked up many years ago, but I don't know where it came from.
That is 'Fuck it or Fix it'.
I use it all the time. If I have a problem then fix it. If I can't fix it then fuck it. Move on.
That is sometimes easier said that done but it does help me out a lot sometimes.

I also really like a quote by Thomas Edison.
'I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that it won't work'.
It is a very comforting sentiment sometimes.

I read a book years ago called 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu. I highly recommend it.
In that book he says 'The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting'.
I have always like that outlook.
