Something brilliant: Billy Idol - Save Me Now


Billy Idol - Save Me Now

I've been hyping about this, since I heard it for the first time, just the other day.. We actually had to google, to believe that it's a new song.. It has such 80's classic written all over it, and Billy Idol's voice still sounds so young! Awesome tune =)

Happy St. Patrick's Day


I spent a fiver on decorations - well, this pot of shamrock was €4.99, at Supervalu Dunshaughlin =)

It'll be just a normal day at work, for me. By choice. If I'd taken a day off, I wouldn't have done anything special, anyway, so might as well go to work.

March winter =/


Snow in Co. Meath, 1st March 2015

I was planning to go to Bray, to spend some time with Pushy, but the roads were shyte, so I only went to Dunshaughlin to get petrol and some shopping.

Spring surprise!


I've been on the late shifts, at work, so it's always dark when I come home, I'm kind of busy in the mornings, and generally, I just haven't had any reason to go out to the patio / back 'garden'.. So, had D not gone out there today, for a smoke, I might not have noticed these spring flowers at all! =D












Pretty evening skies, earlier on tonight..




I made brownies today - LIDL Belbake mix, and I only noticed at home, that it contained palm oil =( I've had a lot of those moments, lately - not thinking of looking at the shops, and buying something that's killing the orangutans =( It's almost like they're putting palm oil (a.k.a. "vegetable oil") in everything..


Now, chillin' on the large sofa, with the laptop, telly, sleepy kitties, gourmet coffee, tealights, etc..

Loving the Dolce Gusto stuff


I've stocked up on Dolce Gusto pods, so much so, that I could almost open a coffee shop at home.. LOL


So far, I've tried the following pods;

Americano ... I find this a little bit "watery" (even if only using a small amount of water), but it's still nicer than instant coffee..

Cappuccino ... Really, really nice.. And I love the milk pods! Even if you're out of milk, you can have a nice cappuccino.. (And it's the same with some other stuff, like Latte Macchiato, etc..) Very handy, quick and easy, and much less washing up, than you'd have with "real" milk..

Chococino ... Lovely hot chocolate..

Latte Macchiato ... I absolutely love this one.. I hadn't had a latte macchiato since my one and only trip to Italy, nearly ten years ago! So, it's lovely to be able to have it at home, any time..

These were all the options they had at Supervalu Dunshaughlin.. Then, I found a few more at Tesco Bray;

Cafe au lait ... I think this would be my favourite for a "regular coffee" style cuppa..

Barista ... Now we're talkin'.. This is real COFFEE - the kind of stuff that's loved by my taste buds, and hated by my stomach =D So, I probably won't be drinking too much of this stuff, but maybe once a day.....


I want to try most of their pods, but not all - not interested in skinny or decaf stuff.. It seems that they only have the most popular ones available in shops, so I'll probably need to order some online, one of these days..




C-c-c-c-cold-d-d-d-d..


I was in Bray, yesterday, and when I came home, I found I'd run out of kerosene.. So, no central heating! And just before a really frosty night..

I ordered a 350L delivery, but the first available delivery date was tomorrow, so I'm currently making lots of money for Airtricity, by using the electric heaters..

Well, at least now I know that 250L is enough for one month, when I have the central heating on a timer, keeping the house temperature comfortable all the time. (I'm obviously not at home all the time, but I don't want the kitties to freeze, either, so I'm not letting the house go cold.)
