As young whippersnappers, Eoghan and I don’t have many rituals or routines. You could blame this on our fabulous, spontaneous, jet-set lifestyle, or you could point out that it’s more likely due to the fact that we’re easily distracted and slightly disorganised.
But since moving into the new apartment, we’ve definitely been picking up a lovely new habit: proper lazy Sunday brunches.
French toast, bacon, maple syrup, OJ and a big pot o’ tea. Pure bliss.
Yesterday, we took our lazy Sunday on the road and met up with Corina and Anthony and headed to The Crafty Market in Dublin 8. Apart from the cutesy cupcake baby socks, pretty necklaces, great art and very pretty handmade handbags, there’s also a yummy waffle stand and some great coffee. I didn’t have my camera with me yesterday, but here are some quick shots I snapped last month.
I bought a couple of cards from this stand:
It’s on the first Sunday of each month and I’d heartily recommend checking it out.
After a leisurely wander around there, we went up the road to scope out the NCAD graduate show and then onto Ocean, where we flicked through the Sunday papers and got stuck into a few lots of spicy wings. Before you knew it, it was 8pm.
Sure, there was washing to be done, stuff to be sorted, photos to edit, emails to send. But when a lovely day spontaneously creeps up on you like that, can you really say no?
Is there anybody out there? Please hold while I wipe the cobwebs off this blog. I had no idea when we first decided to move apartment, ooh, well over a month ago now, that it would take this long to get internet.
I had heard the Eircom horror stories, but nothing could have prepared me for the pain, anguish and unhelpfulness. And since I have a strict no blogging at work policy, it meant this wee pet was left abandoned, and I am very sorry.
Would some flowers help make it up to you?
No? How about some cupcakes, made after a very fun and tipsy Cocktails & Cupcakes night to christen the new place?
Still not up to forgiving me? Well, try saying no to this face:
I have tried, and failed miserably.
Normal blogging will resume now, thank you please muchly to anyone who has stuck around (or who saw this in their GoogleReader, thought ‘where the hell has this lazy wagon been?’ and clicked out of curiosity).
Here are a few more holiday shots, this time of our hot air balloon ride in Luxor. It was an amazing experience, completely worth getting up at 4am for!
Apologies about any uneven horizons or fuzzyness – these are all straight out of camera.
