I spent last week-end in Blessington, a town slightly out of Dublin. The occasion was a friend's birthday She rented a little house in a resort bordering a lake and plotted a series of equally fun and corny activities like horseshoes pitching, wheelbarrow races, rifle shooting and archery.
I was a bit worried at first, but I had a great time goofing around with my favourite people in a truly beautiful place. The house was so cozy, and a great refuge against the freezing nights we had over the weekend. We spent loads of time next to the fire chatting and watching tv (good ole Father Ted and a cheesy eighties Christmas film called Scrooged with Bill Murray that put me in such a festive mood), eating too many sachets of dried cheese+broccoli pasta, and American candy.
I did a copious amount of reading (The Heart is a Lonely Hunter) in bed as it was like internet rehab. I may also have spent hours pretending I'm a Seventies housewife sitting at the vanity putting make-up on (I never had one of those, please don't judge me).

Obviously if there are animals around you can trust me to pester on them with my pesky camera... I just can't help it.

That sounds like a great weekend! Beautiful pictures! Also, Scrooged is one of my all time favorite holiday movies! It's so good!

Sounds like great fun, hope it wasn't too cold, the chickens look very cold. Also father Ted is always appropriate television. Mu flatmates and I had my lovely horse on high repeat for all of November.

oh poor things, how can you tell? it was very cold actually. I really felt bad for the goat cos he had no one to snuggle to and no shelter.
haha, i haven't listened to that song in ages, i have to do that now! x
