Tralee :)

A wonderful week spent in Tralee with hubby and de loons...I especially loved our day on the Dingle Peninsula and the day spent on Valentia Island..simply fabulous!! Great scenery and wonderful history!!

Most popular with small people was undoubtedly the Aquadome in Tralee..(grand  but expensive and chilly after an hour or two!! ) and the unexpected bonus of great new neighbours for the week.
Met a fab family from the Midlands with two girls the same age as our two girls...happy days :)
Poor no.3 felt a little excluded from all the girly talk but made up for it playing hurling with de dads each evening :))

MIA blink and suddenly a few months have rushed by and anyone bothering to read has probably withered away and died of boredom :))

Life here is the same hectic chaos minus the daily lunchmaking and rush to have the kids in school!!! Hurray for the summer holidays!

Of course with weather like ours, that leaves the question of how to entertain de lunatics without having to resort to wet-gear and a boat for the back-garden...LOL

I was delighted to have some really talented peeps comment on some of the 'artwork'..I use the term loosely...people like Bonzie ( )

and Lilycobweb ( ) have been really kind and honestly for real talent,spend just a little while on Etsy to see work by these two amazing girls

or by Susarto( )

or Rubyclover( ),

you will not be disappointed!

For all wannabe 'yummymummy fashionistas', I recently discovered this little gem...

For the princely sum of 14 Euros, you can take a gamble and purchase a share in an up and coming way to perhaps get your hands on a classic of the future!

Worth a peek!

Not forgetting the sale page at

Enjoy :)

A number of weeks ago whilst browsing, a favourite site of mine, I came across Crowbiz22. This very kind lady was offering free ACEOs (artist trading cards) to the first few people to contact her.

Now Yummymummy has never been reknowned for her friendship with "Lady Luck", but the gods were shining down and I managed to bag myself a free ACEO!! I was chuffed and eagerly awaited its arrival.

I was not disappointed..."The Angry Badger" arrived a short while later. This small piece of art is perfectly formed and certainly made me smile enough to purchase some more of Crowbiz' work. The "Angry Badger" can be viewed on her blog.Her little shop is definitely worth a peek ,as is her blog...

So Crowbiz, if you ever read this,many thanks again for your generosity :) :)

Don't get me wrong,I enjoy earning my crust and doing something useful apart from laundry and cooking duties but today was just one of those days when I wanted,nay,I needed, a duvet day!!!

Anyone else interested in getting the Irish government to fund 3 paid "duvet-days" for all workers ?

Would make more sense than some of the nonsense they have been known to spend our hard-earned taxes on!!

Just a thought :)))
