Hi Everyone,

Hope You are all well and enjoying the holiday season. I had three days off and I spent some time relaxing at home with family. Yesterday the 27th of December Myself and Mr Dillon went to Galway, to look for a new computer in PC world. We got a little beaut, and a bargain too. I wanted an actual PC for working at home. I needed loads of storage for all my photos etc and plenty memory.  We also had a look in all the home furnishing stores. Ez living, home focus woodies and Dunnes stores in Terryland. In my opinion Dunnes had the best selection with great discounts and loads of pretty things. We bought a standing lamp for our sitting room. I also bought a lamp for Lee’s room and I bought Lee a leather belt in Tommy Hilfiger. How domesticated are We??? God be with the days when all the days between Christmas and New Year were spent in the pub. Now We are more excited about Homestore and more.

We stopped by 56 central for lunch. I always love the food here, its absolutely delicious. I was in desperate need of a good clean meal after all the gluttony of the past few days. Of course Mr Dillon loves a good Full Irish so He was only too delighted to hear it was available. I went for the superfood salad, with Goats cheese, beetroot , quinoa and sun blush tomatoes. It was amazing as always, so refreshing and tasty. Mr Dillon was delighted with his all day breakfast which had chips included, much to his delight. I always find it hard to strike a balance in eateries. Its either super healthy or not healthy at all. I love how 56 Central always has  great variety of naughty and nice. Mr Dillon was well impressed with 56 as this was the first time He had accompanied me there. I had plans to meet a friend later for pizza and wine so I was trying to be good for at least half the day.

I popped into River island for a quick look at the sale. It was dog eat dog in there and everything was allover the place. I spotted a skirt that was reduced to €18 but there was a que of about 15 people and I just could’nt be bothered. So We headed off home again. I didnt see anything in the sales that made me go WOW. We got a good deal on the computer and Dunnes had a good few things reduced but that was all. It was a lovely day out and we headed out to the salthill prom for a walk. This was badly needed a good blast of fresh air coming in from the Atlantic was just what We needed to blow away the cobwebs. It was so busy out on the prom with loads of people walking.




  Later that evening I met up with my friend Geraldine who now lives in London. We went to La farnia in Westport. This is a casual wine bar \ pizza place. Its a lovely relaxed atmosphere serving Wine, Pizza, Burgers and prosecco cocktails. Its a lovely Idea for a casual dining option, instead of a formal restaurant.  We had a bottle of pinot gricio, a sharing platter to start which was garlic bread, cheeses, dips and cold meats and a large pizza, the bill came to €47 which was very reasonably priced. We had a lovely few drinks after in Mc brides and Mc Gings and the clock. It was a great catch up and a lovely night.

So that it for now, Come follow me on snapchat for my latest antics at mrspdilly2b

Love Maria  xx
