Exploring: Bloom In The Park 2018


Last Thursday, with Rose bundled up in the back of the car I made my way up to the annual Bloom in the Park Festival that's held in the Phoenix Park in Dublin. Last year was my first year at it, and I thought it was just so pretty and lovely that I'd have to go back this year. Technically Rose was with me last year as well as I would have been about two weeks pregnant at the time. It's a little bit more of a challenge getting around the place with a three month old though, especially in the heat.

Exploring: Bluebells and Buskers


What a bank holiday weekend! Such glorious weather. We decided to dedicate some of the time to making a start on cleaning up our garden a little bit, but couldn't justify spending all our time slaving away at it so on the Sunday we headed over to the annual Bluebells and Buskers in Killinthomas Woods in Rathangan.

Recipe: Mini Egg Brownies



I always find at this time of the year I stock up on mini eggs. The only problem is I find myself constantly snacking on them, even though they're only meant to be for decoration.

Last year I decided to try some recipes where I could throw some in, and then send them off with Shane to work so I wouldn't keep overindulging in them. This was one of the treats that went down well so I've decided to share it, especially since the batch I made yesterday were probably the nicest brownies I've ever made (and I've made quite a lot)!

Exploring: Altamount Gardens





Due date is fast approaching (three days and counting) and in order to keep me occupied and my mind off of what's coming up Shane decided to surprise me by bringing me on a mystery drive.


(There wasn't any need to worry if I had gone early - he had figured out the fastest route to the hospital before we headed off, and my bags were in the boot)!
