The Wild Atlantic Way Ireland

Sunday we decided to hit the road and enjoy a few hours in the good weather. We decided to visit Bundoran in County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way. The sea air is good for the soul and there is nothing like spending a nice sunny day at the seaside. Here are a few images of our day.

What a Lovely Long Weekend

Hello everyone. The weather has just been wonderful this weekend and to top it all off, we got an extra long weekend with the bank holiday and I am taking tomorrow off too. At last sunshine has arrived, the countryside is turning a lovely colour of green, the grass is growing and the flowers are beginning to blossom. I love this time of year and try to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Here are a few photographs of my walk around the farm this morning. These photographs were taken from one of my favourite places on the farm where there is no one in sight and only the sound of the bird song.

Easter at All things nice...

Easter is upon us already. It is a great time to catch up with family and friends and take a break from work after the long winter months. Our weather here in Ireland is forecast to improve which is great as we have had miserable weather. I have finished my flower arranging course now so will miss it. Below are some images of the flowers I have in my home at the moment. I have lots as they last so long when I keep them in my entrance hallway as it is much cooler than the kitchen, dining or living room. I loved the flower arranging course and perhaps I might even enroll on another one. I am longing for some sunshine to get out and about and do work in my garden. First thing I need to do is paint the garden fence. I also want to set flowers but it is still a little early for that as the nights are quite cold. Have you any nice plans for Easter?

Spring Time and Easter Time at Home

Those of you who read my blog will know that I have attended some flower arranging classes and I love them! They are finishing up this week though so I will then have to keep putting all I have learned into practice. The clocks went forward last night which means we have longer evenings. I like getting out and about in the evening time particularly now that spring has really set in. I have some extra days off work this week and the week after for Easter. Below are a few images from around my home this weekend.

Interior Shopping for Spring

Now that Spring is here, I am itching to go shopping for home interiors. For the moment though, I can lust after the items below. All are cheap and cheerful and would really brighten up the home. All of these items can be purchased online but I much perfer to go to the shop myself and take a look at the items first. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoying the Spring weather....
