Some time back we featured the very lovely Bold & Noble type maps as a learning edition to your newbie’s nursery. And although it doesn’t have the same soap opera familiarity as the London map the new Dublin print is a very welcome local edition. Available unframed in sea green or sheer slate here.
Despite the chilly weather the Farmleigh summer markets are in full swing. As always this weekends market has the usual foody treats but with the addition of Art in Action event there are plenty of crafty activities for the kids to take part in. And if all else fails there’s coffee and ducks to feed down at the boathouse. Details of this weekends and future markets here.
Currently in the midst of a second heavy covering of snow over Dublin, baby and I took the opportunity to carry out a second round of snowman inspecting. After a serious wrestle trying to get baby into the carrier, with both of us layered in coats and jumpers, we eventually made it out. Deeper than last time, the novelty of the snow appears to be already wearing off as the majority of people we saw were digging out driveways rather than throwing snowballs but there was still a reasonable selection of snowmen around. Here’s hoping for a white Christmas day too, once we are all at our dinner destination of choice.
Cabin fever has started to set in so this afternoon baby and I decided to venture out the door to have a walk around the local area and inspect some of the snowmen. As no pram was making it through the snow and we have no sleigh at the moment (please Santa…maybe a nice wooden sleigh..?), baby spent the walk in my arms shouting random abuse at snowflakes and children playing. More snow to come according to the weather forecast, bigger and better snowmen yet to come…?
