    Morning, all. Bobbypins, 30 degrees, big change from 46 last week? It’s snowing here, I’m all excited, worse than the toddler whose never seen snow before. I’m in Limerick though and we haven’t had any snow up til now so I haven’t had time to get bored with it. As soon as breakfast is over and it gets bright me and the small man are getting bundled up and out to play in the snow.

    Morning ladies, its so cold in dub, couldn’t face work clothes yet so I’m in jeans, vans and hoodie, wish I could stay in them all day!!!

    Kilashee was fab, would recommend it defo!!! The beautician did try sell me products for 160 though so beware those of you easily swayed!!

    Are flights booked yet BP?? X

    Hi all,

    Lovely bit of snow out there this morning. It was all going down my back as I walked to work. Was very grateful for the spare socks I brought in when I arived my feet were soaked.

    Does anyone else use the MyFitnessPal app? Its brilliant!

  • Breige says:

    EvieM, is it really snowing in Limerick? I’m in Clare, I suppose I should look out the window and see if there’s snow!

    Hello there!

    I started the day by having a fight with an Internet website to book train tickets, but that’s sorted now. I won.

    Had a nice weekend, saw a friend on Saturday. I hadn’t seen her since August so it was nice catching up.

    On Sunday we were sort of trapped by the snow. We couldn’t go to the market as we usually do, so had to go to the local greengrocer’s (1,5km walk in the snow – 5cm of snow, 10cm at some places). We bought the bread for our elderly neighbours on our way, and I realised that nothing, but really nothing will ever come between a Frenchman and his baguette. At 9.45, we met around 30 people, all equipped with ski-like clothes, on their way to the baker’s. Some things are sacred!

    @BP, hope you’ll manage to relax.

    @Orla, I saw your Friday night posts. Hugs. Hope your weekend wasn’t too bad.

    Have a nice day!

  • EvieM says:

    Breige, yup sure is. Tis only beautiful. Tried to convince hubby to take a snow day as we’re out the Cork side of limerick and he works in the city, didn’t work though =(

    The Frog, that’s so nice of you to get your neighbour the bread. We Irish feel the way about tea that ye feel about bread.

  • thefrog says:

    @EvieM: tea is more important than bread for me, and at least you don’t need to go and buy fresh one every day! ;)

    I played with one of the neighbours’ child on Saturday, making snowmen in the garden. Then I invited her inside for a hot chocolate. Talking to her was enlightening. Apparently I’m old (28, she’s 9), short hair (like I have) is “ugly”, and wearing 2 identical earrings on the same ear (I have 2 piercing on 1 ear, 1 on the other, nothing fancy really) is also “ugly”.
    I love children…

  • Breige says:

    Decided to take another look out the window, it’s *very* lightly snowing, it’s not sticking to the ground either

  • LoCo says:

    Morning peeps
    BP- hope you are ok. I find pilates and yoga great for settling me down.
    Snowing in Kildare and Dublin, countryside looks gorgeous in the snow. Great view from the bus. Just hope it doesn’t stick to roads hate commuting in the snow.
    In a fit of madness in May last year I bought Sorel snowboots that were 130 down to 30. Very happy this morning I had that little fit cause my toes are toasty. :)

  • Breige says:

    Just saw on the website that there’s a tea and coffee promotion on in Centra today, cos apparently it’s ‘Blue Monday’. Buy anything in Centra and get a tea or coffee for 1c! Excludes a few things (lotto tickets, bin tags, alcohol, those kind of things!)

  • EvieM says:

    Breige, twas like that here last night around 9 then stopped, no sign of anything before bed, woke up this morning and the place is covered, it’s still snowing lightly on and off, looks lovely. Must get some photos of small man in the snow, it’ll probably rain later and wash it all away. Just spoke to the hubby and he’s in the city and there’s no snow there, we’re out in the sticks.

    The Frog, yeah there’s nothing like kids and their “opinions” to put you back in your place.

    Bobbypins, you’ll have no problem finding a man at 33, sure most of them are only just reaching adulthood up by that stage. Just make sure you get one that doesn’t still live with his mammy and you’ll be grand. On the other hand, if you’re not bothered about mammies, my big brother is 45, has a great job, loadsa money and still lives at home. He is guaranteed to inherit the house when the parents kick the bucket too, he’s got potential I tell ya.

  • Breige says:

    EvieM, ya it’s stopped here now and the snow that was on the car is melting. The sea looks amazing though, it’s right across the road, massive swells or something as the waves look huge!

  • EvieM says:

    Sounds lovely Breige, you in Lahinch?

  • Shygirl says:

    Morning. I thought I would be one of the first on but ye all beat me to it. Hope ye all are good in the hood.

    Orla, hope your weekend was okay after.

    Bobbypins, your still so young, you have your whole life ahead of you.

    I have decided to give myself a day off this week. I have been really busy all week. I know that sounds ad seeing as I finished my job last week. But I have just been really busy sorting out job stuff, cleaning doing stuff etc. So on wednesday I am having a me day. I’m not going to do any cleaning etc. I am wrecked cos I got no break over xmas and I need a rest.

    Bluuuurghhhh Snow! Scary drive to work this morning from Dundrum to Clondalkin! Waaah!

    BobbyPins – all will work out ok! 33 is NOT as old as you might think y’know!

  • says:

    Shygirl, are you in dublin?? if so there is a great agency that i got my job through if you want details??

    An BP 33 is nooooo way old at all… Chin up x

  • Breige says:

    EvieM, I’m very close to Lahinch! Only ten mins away. The sea sounds crazy today, I can hear it crashing hard every now and again

  • Shygirl says:

    Thanks Có, I’m about 3 hours from Dublin! Thanks anyway. I’m a sleepy head this morning, woke up early and couldn’t get back. So I got up when my fella was getting up for work cause I just wudda fallen asleep when I shudda been getting p, and been tired and headachey all day.

  • witchgirl26 says:

    Morning all. Left home this morning & there was only a light sprinkling of snow around me so thought it’d be grand. Eh no – absolutely covered where work is! D’oh!

    Bobbypins – agree that there are lots of nice guys at that age. Know a few guys around that age who are lovely & are looking for the right woman now so you could be hitting them at the exact right moment!
