28/365 Colours of the Rainbow - VIOLET

Last year I went on a painting course. I loved it but only get around to it when doing the course and have stopped again. I would love to have a table set up permanently with my painting stuff so I would actually get around to it!

Indigo was so difficult to come up with so I raided my wardrobe!

25/365 Colours of the Rainbow - GREEN

When I think of the colour green I think of grass! This pic was taken on Sunday as I am never home early enough to take a pic outside. This is the site I hope to build on. Fingers crossed for 10th February - decision date with council.

24/365 Colours of the Rainbow - YELLOW

One of my favourite flowers is a sunflower and when I thought of yellow I immediately thought of the sunflower. These are fake ones as no real ones around!

I have to share a pic from last year! We came across a field of sunflowers in Ireland and so I am cheating but have to show you's!

23/365 Colours of the Rainbow - ORANGE

My mam has a guest room which she painted bright orange for my cousins who call it their playroom. The colour for me is awful but the kids like it. I added some other orange stuff I found.

22/365 Colours of the Rainbow - RED

We still have a poinsettia in our house from Christmas. I love the vibrant red flower.

Favourite Thing #7 Shopping

I'm using Grafton St to represent my love of shopping but I have to admit I rarely shop there. When I was on Grafton St yesterday the sky was a beautiful blue so had to take a pic!. I love Penney's, New Look and Monsoon.

Favourite Thing #4 Food

I love food particularly strawberries and chocolate. Can't buy decent strawberries at this time of year so had to settle with the top of a strawberry jam pot.

Favourite Thing #3 Shoes

I have always loved shoes. This is only a small sample of the shoes I own! My favourites are the red patent T-bars which I wore for my wedding. I also love the irregular choice purple shoes and the black Schuh shoes. No matter what size I have been my shoes have always fitted and thus my love affair has grown stronger!

Favourite thing #1 My husband

My husband hates posing for pictures so I am cheating with today's picture and taking a pic of a framed picture a neighbour gave me. I love this picture! I have always loved taking pictures and have 1000s pictures.

14/365 Childhood Memory #4

Childhood Memory #4 MAYO!!! As a child my granddad would get me to support Mayo rather than Meath as he was originally from there. I loved to go to games but thankfully couldn't get tickets to the finals in '96 and '97!! I was mad about my granddad and when he died when I was 13 I knew I would never support any other county. Very difficult when I married a big Meath supporter. I had this cake topper to have a reminder of my granddad on the day. I'm sure he would have loved it.

13/365 Childhood Memory #3

Childhood memory #3 I loved the Rubiks cube however could only ever get 2-3 sides complete. So I would swap the stickers around to make it look like I completed it!!
