I'm a huge fan of sunsets so take tons of photo's of them when I see a good one. I suppose I'm just a big romantic at heart. I'm still working on getting them all on here. Maybe I'll do a folder especially for them. hmmm

Heres a few fun photo's of some friends and things like that.
this is lots of friends from work and other friends on a twenties style murder mystery weekend in mayo on the west of Ireland.
I really really reccommend it. check www.thefoxfordlodge.ie.
the family that run it are the best best hosts and the house is a bed and breakfast too. He runs fishing trips and painting classes. All sort. Great value and super hospitality. Very talented painter the owner Harry and his wife Brigid made us food to welcome us. check my Mayo page.

Tomboys at play
Being the big tomboys me and my friend Rachel have always been, we thought it would be clever and fun to 'walk' down from the monastery at Montserrat outside Barcelona. Well let me tell you its a bloody mountain and hiking down in our flip flops and skirts was hilarious. Not a soul in sight. Took us 2 and a half hours. Woah.

My four legged best friend
This is Beamer my dog. He's the cutest thing in the world.
This picture of him is when he just came back from a walkies in Irish rain.
Aw so cute. Now beamer has companion although being 15 he's not so bale anymore. Molly is now 3 years old and she's my crazy border collie. pics to come
