Ok – so I’m 48 and 6 days old. Feeling good.
Been in Dublin since yesterday. Great meeting with a client and then sancerre and pate/cheese with a few friends in Fallon and Byrne. Lovely.
Today was a sleep in and then Shani and I went for crepes around the corner. After that I went on a hunt for a couch I could get delivered in under 4 months. Found one in Arnott’s (love the northside) that’s 7ft long and lovely and squishy – and -they can deliver in 2 weeks cause it’s off the shop floor. Lovely.
Came back to the apartment (I rent a room from Shani and Mia and it’s right on the quays in Dublin across from the Morrison Hotel – literally in the centre of Dublin) and had a 3 hour nap. Lovely.
Got up to get ready for my birthday dinner in Eden (top restaurant in Dublin). Shani did my makeup (and I usually go sans makeup) and it looked fab.
Off to dinner – amazing food and the best dessert menu in Dublin. Great company with Shani, Mia, Sharon & Emma. Lovely wine and lots of laughter. Best birthday celebration. Lovely.
Decided I’m having a lovely time in Dublin and will stay an extra day. Off to a lunchtime play with Shani and then an exhibition in the Gallery of Photography – pin hole photos by a woman photographer. Lovely.
Then home to Ballinamore on Friday morning. Lovely.
A damn fine week.
