The secret to younger looking skin…funny the big beauty brands never tried this one

First, drink some chocolate milk, but make sure that as much as possible get’s all over your face, your upper lip and chin especially. Then you rub some snot from your nose all over your face and let it dry in – it should leave a kind of slug-like trail across your cheek, and mayContinue reading “The secret to younger looking skin…funny the big beauty brands never tried this one”

I’m pregnant, I have a cold and Hannah has started school….I have LOTS of excuses!

But I don’t really care if anyone wants a reason for my silence, shit happens – and blogs aren’t top priority when you are throwing up every day, your 3-year-old has hit “toddler-dom”, school, wakeful nights and tantrums all at once…and recently I have a sinus head cold to make me feel like crap. ThereContinue reading “I’m pregnant, I have a cold and Hannah has started school….I have LOTS of excuses!”

WHAT date is it?!

I’ve no idea when I last posted – I’m sure I posted a few things…”in my imagination”… Never mind. I’ve not stopped running, worrying and weaving since I last posted. I’d wish there was less of the worrying, but then I’d probably be dead, so maybe not – so I’ll not complain too much aboutContinue reading “WHAT date is it?!”

ooohhh, dyeing and the cold

Well as usual,  I’m a big fat slacker and it’s been ages since I wrote something. Hannah’s started the creche, she has a cold, she’s given it to me, I’m back at work and feeling like poo (with having the cold, not sleeping as I am feeding her and she has the cold so sheContinue reading “ooohhh, dyeing and the cold”

Hannah Aoife Casey…Strictly speaking, not a weaving project

Well, if anyone other than my mum, sister and a few friends read my blog on a regular basis, then you’ll know that I’ve been more than just a “bit of a slacker” recently – But this excuse is the best yet – really! On the 8th of October, I went to the hospital forContinue reading “Hannah Aoife Casey…Strictly speaking, not a weaving project”

Holy Cow, Batman! (or something like that)

What a month! I can’t believe it’s now the 25th of September…tomorrow is a good friend’s birthday, and I almost forgot; I’m 35 weeks pregnant with a Spacehopper for a belly; I was told 2 weeks ago that I had “signs of pre-eclampsia” and had to take it easy (HA!…try moving house, being heavily pregnantContinue reading “Holy Cow, Batman!

Silky silky…and the baby-buggy flipflop

When we were home a few weeks ago, my sister gave me some raw silk which she’d picked up in a wool shop in Cavan, where she lives. It’s beautiful, and I’ve been trying to work out what to do with it that will do it justice, but there’s an irony here; The silk wasContinue reading “Silky silky…and the baby-buggy flipflop”

More on the Mohair…and a baby or two…or 3!

Well what a few weeks! More place mats woven (and awaiting hemming, washing – oh sorry, “Wet finishing”, photographing and posting on Etsy ). The mohair shawl was washed, finished, fluffed up and photographed. I had thought of putting it on Etsy, but ended up speaking to my friend Nula of Noolibird, and she persuadedContinue reading “More on the Mohair…and a baby or two…or 3!”
