There’s no day like a snow day to Walkitoff in NI. (Xmas – Part Deux)

It’s all about the clothing (again). Boots, gloves, coats and sledges….. Snowmageddon? It’s Christmas Part Two! Snowballs, sledges and even Swans a Swimming! After our snowy shenanigans we are channeling Swedish aprés-ski chez nous. The fondue set is out and the fire is blazing. Steak, prawns and chicken all ready to dip into gently boiling…

Ciao January!

A month where you crave sofas and easy chairs but no! A month for walking and a month for layers, waterproofs, hats, gloves, scarves, mud-scrapers and absolutely stunning sunrises, topped off with a massive wide-eyed and glossy, once in a long time, Blue Moon.

If you do one thing this week join the Connect Programme!

My first impression of the Connect Programme = NOISY! The first thing I saw was the image of security men scratching their heads in the deafening cacophony that was the temporarily broken, fire alarm.  All we could do was grin and nod at each other, hands over our ears- an excellent ice-breaker!

Breaking in the Ilse Jacobsen.

The shop sells a smörgasbord of deliciously edgy to downright glamorous designer wear at a fraction of the South Molton Street prices and, as if by magic, on Friday, an Ilse Jacobsen arrived. In my size!
