I hadn’t realised it was Dying Matters Awareness week from 12th – 18th May, until I read an article on Love Belfast.
They reported on the findings of a poll by Marie Curie about what ambitions people in Northern Ireland have. A bucket list if you will… I thought the results were quite interesting! It would appear that I share many of the same dreams and ideals as everyone else.
Every year I struggle with Father’s day Gift Ideas, and end up running around the streets at the last minute looking for funny socks! This year I decided to be more organised and do a little investigating ahead of time. I thought I would share with you the favourite items I have found so far for Father’s Day Gift Ideas.
If you read my post Herb Garden in a Flower Pot you will know that I am definitely in need of some inspiration for the garden in my new house (though the whole buying process takes so long it feels like it is never going to happen!) . So when the opportunity to visit Garden Show Ireland presented itself I jumped at the chance.
I would love to grow as much of my own fruit and vegetables as possible. I really would! I will…someday! However, I’m not very green fingered so I thought I would start with a little herb garden in a flower pot. This is one of the simplest ways of having some fresh produce ready when you need it.
Knowing Lewis’ love of all things to do with vehicles, I thought he might enjoy a visit to the Shanes Castle May Day Steam Rally.
We were not disappointed there were enough steam engines and vintage vehicles to keep everyone happy. I found it really hard to imagine these vehicles once travelling through the country, providing haulage and working in agriculture.
