Day 19 – Nerd! Moi?

What I mean by nerd, is that I love technology, and all things techie. That said, not in a way that I can recite every acronym ever invented for Windows or Mac. No, more like the way it can amuse me. My iPhone, or a cool application, or my computer. And it is of a […]

Day 18 – Hot stuff!

This is truly old news, but the odd obsession with the weather in Ireland is a most astounding matter. And might I add, that as I write I am sitting bemoaning the weather as much as the next person – however, I digress. Just so that you know I am not really entitled to stand […]

Day 17 – Sexy legs

Right! I wish to share an ever so embarrassing moment I had today (with advance apologies to the man in my life). Picture the scene… There I was, Brandon House Hotel – May 2010. I was about to sign Brian Kennedy for the hotel as part of the upcoming Dunbrody Festival (in opposition to Crystal Swing […]

Day 16 – Best behaviour

Thanks Chef! Finally I have complete support from the home front with my challenge, and I am SERIOUSLY back on track. The bumpy and cellulite infused road of the past few days is ebbing into a smooth and controlled calorific ride – and all of that because I returned to work being greeted by curiosity and […]

Day 15 – Eulogy

Today is not a day for trivial tattle over a couple of pounds not shed, or a muscle not exercised. Today is a day to remember. Today kicked off with incredibly sad news, and news that always makes the distance between where we live, and where we come from seem like an eternity. I would […]

Day 14 – Back on track

Confession – the title refers to us being back on track to the Model County, and has no reference whatsoever to me being back on track…. yet! We are definitely going to have to write this weekend off as a speed wobble, that will have to be severely re-balanced from tomorrow onwards. It was the day […]

Day 13 – 100 days to go!

Oh my God!!! Look at the hour! I’m getting back into good habits, and blogging at the end of the day at the latest…. and what a bold girl I’ve been – staying up till now? And speaking of beyond the pumpkin hour – am I the only South African living in the northern hemisphere missing pumpkin fritters […]

Day 12 – Thelma & Louise

Late again? Of course dears – we were in transit to Sligo! A lovely stop over in Mullingar with Claire and Rian, and a leisurely cruise via Longford. OK – I confess, leisurely until some asshole drove into the back of my car, refused to admit that he had (even though his bumper was still seductively […]

Day 11 – Toastmasters

I’m officially in full-on Toastmasters mode. Great meeting this evening, with hysterical Tall Tales to boot, and off to Land of Heart’s desire Conference tomorrow with Hop-Along Carmel – in Sligo. Apparently the after effects of delicate keyhole surgery should rather be interpreted as bolt-hole surgery – not much different to the insertions made in Frankenstein’s […]

Day 10 – Yesterday

For the millions following my mortification approach religiously – my apologies for the late post – but I was in the “Big Smoke” yesterday, and did not get around to sit in front of the pc till now. Free!!! That’s what my afternoon cost me – nothing! And you might ask what did I get up […]
