These are a few of my favourite things....

I was thinking today about how I have some really talented friends.
And how so many of my friends don't realise how talented they actually are.
So today my blog is dedicated to those friends.
It also allows me to share with you the talent that I am lucky enough to enjoy regularly.

1) Brianán.


Brianán is a one of those people who you spend with time with and then smile for about two days afterwards. I don't know how she does it but I adore spending time with her.
She also has started making her own cards and notepaper. From SCRATCH! How cool is that?
Would you like a look?
Of course you would!




Yup. Isn't she talented?
Why not click HERE and let her know what you think?



2. Tiffani


I met Tiffani about four years ago in a little city called Tallinn. (see photo above)
We became really good friends and her friendship is one that I have really treasured in the last few years.
We send each other letters and parcels.
We talk about everything and anything.
We shared happy times, sad times, tears and laughter
She's fabulous.
Not only is she a fabulous friend she is a fabulous photographer.
This one is my favourites



She has such a good eye for a shot. I love looking at all her photos. Especially some of the photos she took in Russia. They are beautiful. Stunning even.
You should have a look at her work.

3. Eibhlín




 Eibhlín is also a fabulous photographer who is based here in little old Galway.
Not only is she a ridiculous amount of fun to be around she also manages to catch the mood of every event she attends through the lense of her camera.

If you fancy having a look you should.


4. Patrick



Patrick is my baby brother. Ok, he is not a baby anymore but in my head he will always be classed as my baby brother.
Not only is he one of the kindest people I know he is also an amazing poet.
His poetry can be quite controversial but it is all quite current.
I must admit that I am quite envious of his talent on paper.
Have a look HERE if you want to read some of his work.
It is a treat.


 There are many other people I can include and I will do it again.
Alas my other half now wants to check the soccer results so I'm being bullied from the computer.
I hope you enjoy my talented friends as much as I do.
Until the next time....

Ah November. You have returned.

I woke up this morning with a dullness in my heart that I normally don't have in the morning.
On my mornings allocated to sleep in I resemble a sloth blissfully unaware of life in a cocoon, but on a normal morning I wake up with a bit of a bounce. I start my day with a bit of shower time karaoke. I dance around the bedroom as I get dressed for the day. I have a great time. ( Jeez, as I write this I suddenly appreciate Stuart's morning patience a little bit more! Ha!)  Anyway, the point being, despite a very early bed time last night I woke up a wee bit deflated.

Then I remembered  that my old nemesis November has returned.
I did a quick calculation. Marguerite would be 32 next week.
32! Being 32 was one of my favourite times.
Another quick calculation, Marguerite will be gone 15 years this month. 15 years. 2 more years and she will be gone as long as she was with us.
Every November is a little bit easier than the last. Of course it is. Time is a wonderful healer.
But every cal…

Turning 28.

Well. It happened. I turned 28. You know, ignoring a manic depression which lasted all of 20 minutes, I'm pretty ok with it. Rather than shy away from the fact that 30 is just around the corner, I've decided to confront it. Head on. "How?" I hear you ask. Well I have decided to celebrate the final years of being a twenty-something by embarking on a '30 things to do before I'm 30' challenge. I've been working on it for weeks. My friends here in Edinburgh have been really encouraging and I think together we have compiled a pretty mega list. Here we go (in no particular order)
1)Read the BBC top 100 books
2)Bungee jump (I should mention here I'm afraid of heights)
3)Go zorbing
4)Learn a new language
5)Visit the Sistine Chapel
6)Make a quilt (I've always wanted to. I blame Winona Ryder)
7)Visit Tiffani in Utah
8)Parachute Jump with Agata

9)Raise money for charity
10)Do the Great Scottish Run (ugh. The idea pains me.)
11)Sell something I've created
12) Publish somet…

2020

I have started this blog post four times now.
I think that is a new record for my procrastination.
I didn't do a New Year blog, and my previous versions of this were a look back on 2019.
I'll be very honest, I don't want to look back on 2019.
I want to put it in a box, and seal it away forever.

There were some fabulous moments. Of course there were! I got engaged to the most wonderful man I have ever known. I witnessed the weddings of some of my best friends. Babies were born. There was an abundance of soft play, cuddles and karaoke.

For me, 2019 will mostly remind me of being ill. It was a huge part of the year. The worry consumed me for the majority of the latter half. I now know more about hypertension, blood pressure, kidney function and kidney failure than I ever thought necessary.

It sucks being ill. It sucks knowing that you have an illness that will never go away. It doesn't feel fair. If I am very honest with myself I went into a little bit of a pity pit for a w…
