DOPPELGANGER

image

My daughter Ceri got a hair cut a few days ago, that’s her above. The one on the left, I’m Not that old! The lady on the right is my friend Aoife and my daughter’s doppelganger! Now and again you get glimpses of your children and think WOW she looks like her dad/ gran/aunt etc but it’s rare you look and think ” Wow she’s turning into my best friend”. In so many ways! Aoife is intelligent, funny, sweet and full of mischief, exactly the same I’d say about Ceri.

Those two crazy ladies get on well and despite the distance between us all ( Aoife lives far away, married hot American), they have a cool relationship. They even have matching sweaters. As a role model for my daughter, I’m quite happy she looks up to Aoife. Good choice baby, maybe you are more like me after all,

Put a cork in it (part 1)

image

So a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get a chance to pop down to cork with my mum for a quick stay. I wanted to show you some of my favourite parts, take a look at this restaurant front! I thought it was a chemist at first glance but it’s actually a pretty cool place to eat! Maynes just off south mall!

Their front window had a great display of old school cosmetics, looked like a chemist from the 70’s!

Next great part was O’Conaills chocolate cafes. We went twice it was so good! Such an extensive menu, at the suggestion of my friend Li De Giovanni, I tried the cinnamon orange. Wow it was good.

Another great thing was how all the shops let their personality shine through. Look at this shop Amity! Not.only did they have an amazing bike dress in the window but I love their opening hours!

Any suggestions for.my next visit?
