Lets all give a big welcome back to the daffodils

Thursday, February 23, 2006


This photo always brings a smile to my face. There I was taking snaps of this little bluetit when the bugger just flew off (as if I had nothing better to do!!). I never bothered to look at the camera to see if I got him or not - I just assumed I didn't. Needless to say I was delighted when I discovered what I'd captured later.

Happy days.

Yet Another Chris Interview :)

Check out this from last weekends Sunday Business Post (thanks for the link Sean).

He's also got an interview in this months edition of Marie Claire where he gives yours truly an indirect mention and impresses the staff at Infacta with his cutting reference :) Nerdy indeed.

I hope somebody is keeping cuttings.

**Update: Doirbhle sent on this link regarding a review of Chris' nude performance in 'Festival' - cheers :)


And what exactly are you lookin at?

Not the billboard I had in mind

Thanks Jenny for sending in this picture....

This is the pair of us doing a dress rehearsal for the Fancy Dress party during the Shannon Rally last year. Triona made both costumes herself completely from scratch! I think the judges thought we cheated though...

Thanks for the picture Jenny - if anybody else has any that they would like to see here then please send them on - thanks!

Snow day

This is the view from John & Doirbhle's house in New York that they woke up to yesterday morning...

There was over a foot of it and it continued falling at a rate of 3 inches per hour!

Local attraction

Nice silhouette taken in Edinburgh at the weekend while on our way to the pub to watch the match. I think it's very important that you spend time when aboard taking in the local attractions.

100th Blog Entry

Hard to believe but this is the 100th post to the blog! In celebration of that I've decided to give the site a make over - what do you think?

I've also just realized that the auld doggies haven't featured too well so here's one of my favorite pictures of them:

It's not the sharpest but I think it really catches them at their best enjoying the beach.

Well here's to the next 100!

Joanne & Shelly

Joanne & Shelly - Joanne brought us out to this really great restaurant in Dunfermline where I had my first ever sea food pizza (and it most certainly won't be my last).

Happy Birthday Mickey

Mickey Durkin celebrated his birthday with us in the Moorings lately. A great night was had by all (very physical night actually). Pictured is Fidelma, Deirdre, Mickey, Shelly and Benny. Sorry it took so long to publish the pictures...

Is that right Tim?

This pair just won't leave each other alone. Mickey is acting referee.

I have no idea what these three were on but I want some! Denise, Deirdre and Carmel in fine form.

Sure what night would be complete withour a silly game of charades. Tim sucks at charades.

Jenny finally wins an arm wrestle!

Always a good sign when the birthday boy is laughing :)
