Happy St Patrick’s Day!

I’m afraid I’m not being a true patriot today. I had great plans for Paddy’s Day but after 2 days in a children’s hospital I needed to sleep! (little sister was having surgery)

I watched a bit of the parade on RTE but got bored after 10 minutes. This day is really all about drinking here and I just haven’t the drinking stamina anymore. I can hear my fellow Irish inhabitants tut tutting at this very  moment!

My make-up today shall feature no green. I’m not one for the cliché. Everyone in this country will be green today so I’m thinking pink. (I’m green enough on the inside anyway)

It’s also Seachtain na Gaeilge this week. For those of you from across the waters Gaeilge is our native language. With that in mind I will be posting a ‘Favourite Products’ post as Gaeilge this afternoon!

Have a great day everyone, green or otherwise. Bain taitneamh as an lá!

    I hope your sister feels better soon!! I will put her in my prayers. As for St. Paddy’s Day….I live in Texas and I am half Irish and half Mexican, we celebrate this holiday with a vengence!! Besides, I decided long ago that being half Irish and half Mexican meant I was born to drink and lie!! lol
