Son John (in yellow jacket and eyes closed!) performing at the Cork Arts Theatre in a production of Mrs.Bob Cratchits Wild Christmas Binge!

Copied this idea from Kristy Allsop who made something similar on TV.
Sumptious chocolate cake for dessert,made to a recipe by Carla Blake.
Spot the humans! Seen in the city centre,a full band of musicians!
Just what the doctor ordered...................
Into Le Chateau (bar) on Patrick St. for a welcome Irish Coffee to rest up after the shopping!A happy,peaceful and healthy Christmas to all in blogland,see you in the New Year!


  1. Merry Christmas! Looks like you and yours are ready. We're having turkey and all the trimmings for our Christmas Day. Midnight mass, hopefully we'll get to sleep in late (no babies who can't wait 'til morning to open their gifts). There will be something - not sure what - in my coffee. God bless you & yours. Merry Christmas!

  2. Have a wonderful Christmas! Looks like you are definitely going to!


  3. Never think of The Chateau to stop, those Irish coffees might remind me the next day I am in town!
