Really really cold here in Ballinamore but that doesn’t stop people getting married in white strapless dresses … women are so tough.
I saw a lovely bride and her 2 bridesmaids as they walked into the local church today.
Bride looked gorgeous (strapless dress and all) and I was delighted to see the bridesmaids in black … tres cool and kicks pastels against the wall.
Wandered in to Dee’s shop for a chat with her and Gabriel … people are still coming in even after the Xmas rush.
Dessie Wisely (his great You Tube slide show of the Ballinamore Parade during the August Festival is a keeper … check in August or September archives) popped into Dee’s and he told me about a great site.
It’s called Complete Weddings and it provides a service that looks really interesting … cool videos of your wedding and not those poor wee off angle and awkward ones.
I’m not a fan of wedding videos but I enjoyed these ones … go take a look on the site … they have some video examples.
The service is run by Niall (who also is an amazing singer and all round good guy) and I hope to interview him for my Ballinamore Entrepreneurs section in January.
His mum Breege (I think I spelt it wrong … apologies) is one of my favourite people in the Credit Union (and all the women are great in there) and I love having a chat with her when I pop in.
Tres local and creative and professional … Go Ballinamore!
Xmas is now a memory and I’m relaxing by the fire with Coco puppy … it’s literally freezing outside.
Santa brought me lots of bags of coal (as I asked) and wine (ditto).
Still waiting for the Citroen 2cv … maybe it’s too big for the reindeers and he’s sending it by boat.
If anyone in the Ballinamore/Leitrim/Close border counties areas knows of any Citroen 2cv’s please let me know.
You are all great at knowing someone who knows someone … who knows.
They might know where I can buy one … when my 50th birthday Citroen 2cv fund is filled up later in 2009.
Note to self … open special Credit Union account so I can put any spare cents into it … it all adds up.
Hope your Xmas /New Year break is going well.
