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....

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…

Not many people are aware of it, but I had a bit of a health scare last week. I went for a regular 15 minute check up with my GP and spent the following 5 days in hospital going through every test imaginable to man. I am still in the middle of tests but the prognosis is so far positive and I have been allowed home for rest which is fabulous, but good god did I get a fright. And if I am honest I'm not sure Stuart is quite right after it all either!


I have been joking how I would love a good old MOT (NCT for the Irish amongst us), for a while now. They say mocking is catching, and I have fairly gone through the MOT process this last week. Oh boy has it been a fast week! In that time I have had more blood taken than was shed in the Game of Thrones. My hand is so bruised it looks like I have my first tan! I have seen my pancreas, liver, kidneys and an ovary (very cool scan if I say so myself!), I have had my pee collected in little buckets/bottles for 24hrs, and I have pretty much eith…

It has been a long, long time since I have written a blog post.
I don't know why, it has taken me so long, nor shall I apologise for it.
I could give you a thousand excuses and reasons, but I guess the main reason is that I didn't feel like I had an awful lot to say!

That is not true, I always have a lot to say. The topics that have been on my mind however are quite emotive (mostly Brexit related, and let's be honest we have read and heard more than enough about that shite), and it is very difficult to write something when you yourself don't even understand how you feel about it.

For me it is mostly disappointment, and nobody wants to read a whole blog piece about me feeling disappointed. So tonight, I am writing a much more positive one. I am writing some thankfuls.
I have spent the last few months reading and writing. I have spent some time with my family back in Ireland, and spent some wonderful time with Stuart, his family and my friends here in Aberdeen. I was ref…
