56/365 G is for General Election

I voted today but didn't need my polling card so decided to take a pic of it! I have never been so clueless about who to vote for and only decided when I got my sheet.

55/365 F is for Facebook

I go through phases of loving it and hating it but could never delete my account as I am far too nosy!

54/365 E is for Eggs

Mmm my favourite type of eggs!

53/365 D is for Diet? What diet?

I made some Avoca muffins. Anyone who has their dessert book will know everything is full of sugar and butter therefore a gazillion calories but oh so worth it! A girl I work with is going on maternity leave so I made raspberry muffins (pink) and blueberry muffins (blue) as she doesn't know what she is having!

52/365 C is for Chilli

The photo makes my Monday dinner look awful but it was delicious :)

51/365 B is for Birds

While away I have been asking my husband to keep pulling over the car so I could take photos for my blog. He is great! This morning on way back he suggested going to Lough Key Forest Park and I got some photos of the birds on the lake. It was quite dark this morning so excuse the quality of the pictures.

50/365 A is for Amazing views

Sorry but to fit into the alphabet theme I am using my first A as an adjective! Here are some amazing (in my opinion) scenic views of Sligo.

Strandhill Beach

View of Lough Arrow from Carrowmore

46/365 Things about me

I love reading and have read almost every book on these shelves in my parents house! A mix of chick-lit, travel, thrillers and other fiction books are on the shelves. I haven't read a book though since I got back from my honeymoon. I need to change that!

45/365 Things about me

I am a procrastinator and only last week got around to developing photos on my camera from a few years ago! I love taking pictures and had to stop myself only developing 250! Here are a small selection:

43/365 Things about me

I love living in the countryside and waking up when the sun is shining!

42/365 My new toy!

We got an iPad. I need to get a camera connector for it but otherwise I'm delighted with it!

41/365 Hair

Now I have a fringe I have to use my hairdryer and styling brush which had been gathering dust in my wardrobe as I normally let my hair dry naturally.

40/365 - Staring at my phone today....

...waiting for a call about my planning permission. Sorry it's a bad pic and it isn't even the phone I stared at but eventually got the call at 6.30pm- council want further information. It isn't a refusal so we are happy enough. We will find out tomorrow what further info they want.

39/365 Tuesday evenings mean...

... weightwatchers! I got my gold card almost 6 months ago and amazingly am still under my goal weight. I had tried WW so many times and this time it just clicked with me that I was wasting so much money. The card is my favourite card in my wallet as while it took over a 1000euro to get there I'm now free and never intend on giving WW my money again!

38/365 My sitting room

Fingers crossed we will get planning permission on Thursday. While we build we will be living with my parents. They have done up an attic room for us. We have bought lots of Ikea furniture and our room looks like an Ikea showroom at this stage!

37/365 Meeting my new cousin

I met my gorgeous little cousin. He is only 9 days old in these pics.

He looks so content on my lap - excuse my fleecy pyjama bottoms. His sister was not impressed about all the attention he was getting!

36/365 Random

I got a full fringe for the first time ever. This is not a great pic of me but it took me ages to teach my dad how to use my phone! I really like it but I'm worried about the maintenance. My husband loves it.

32/365 Food week

Doesn't look like much but todays lunch was yummy. Can't beat a simple pasta dish.

31/365 Food week

After a bold weekend I really shouldn't be looking at dessert. To be good with the jelly or bold with the choc swiss roll. Guess what I chose!

30/365 Food week

Hangover food- lemon meringue pie. Delicious!

29/365 Food week

Had some friends over and managed to incorporate 1 of my 5 a day into my drinking!
