I Hope So . . . .

Beautiful pictures are developed 
from negatives in a dark room.
So if you see darkness in your life, 
be reassured that a beautiful picture is being prepared

Awake! Awake!

Shopping in one of my favourites shops, Paper Chase, I heard this song playing.  I 'shazamed' it straight away and added it to my playlist for the month.  I'm actually really glad that I started making these playlists because I can look back and see what was going through my mind at the time and see when I watched a film or what kind of mood I was in!

Coldplay & Jay Z

I cannot get enough of this song at the minute although for some reason they have deleted it off Spotify!!! These 2 artists need no introduction and even more so when they work together . . . 


You cannot heal a lifetime of pain overnight,
Be patient with yourself
It takes as long as it takes to rebuild yourself

The Jepettos

Another great local band that I just had to share with you!! I give you 'The Jepettos'


Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come whispering, 
''it will be happier''

What A View

Doesn't the world look so beautiful and peaceful from space??

Happy Birthday Dad

This is my dad and I last year when we went for a walk from Holywood in County Down, my mum is behind the camera!! It is his birthday today!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD

21 again as he says!! I was asked once why I didn't say I had a brother, I replied because I do not.  The person in question thought that my dad was my older brother!!! He will never let me live that story down . . . . ever!!!

Dublin - Jameson Factory

Last June my friend Louise and I took a trip to Dublin to visit our friend Shelly who was visiting from sunny California.  During our trip we visited Mr Jameson and I have to say it didn't taste bad at all.  I think the next trip I will be calling in to see Arthur!!!!
