Having a laugh

I’ve been off the radar for a month now! My how time flies. Just a little snippet of what I’ve been up to: A quick spring trip home to Canada to eat great true north strong and free food (and to see my family and friends of course). Joining the Irish workforce in Kildare, goingContinue reading “Having a laugh”

Highlights from the Highlands

I’m on a bus to Dublin airport en route to Canada for the bank holiday weekend so I might as well share some highlights from our trip to Edinburgh. First I will start with Customs – for all you international couples out there, be sure you check your boarding pass before going through security.

And I tell you, the life of a Lady of Leisure (LOL)Continue reading “The life of a LOL”
