Powerscourt Waterfall

On Sunday, we took the two small girls to Powerscourt as it looked like it was going to be a fab sunny day - but it stayed overcast and cold-ish, not sunny like it was promising to be.

The waterfall is magnificient, really tall and interesting... The girls loved playing in the water and we even found a small area with sand for them to play in, and we watched them from the side and drank hot tea from our flask and had some lovely homemade cookies.... It was wonderful and what memories are made of!

On the way home we stopped at the side of the road to put Lea back in her car set (the rascal keeps getting out of it when you are driving!) and this horse was stood in the field with the most amazing backdrop. OMG it was stunning - even if the horse was sniffing a big lump of poop!

No craftiness that I can share - I made a card for my cousin in America who is 40 and won't share it till her birthday has passed. Made a big effort to sort out my craft office, which is a huge mess, and got part of the way thru it. Actually DH and I are not in agreement about what to do with the office - my plan is to go with a fully fitted system like a kitchen with a long countertop (swoon with the joy of it!) and he wants yucky horrible free standing desks that won't match and won't suit. The irony of it all - is that he NEVER uses the office, never ever, and he is standing in my way of getting the layout I want.

I have treated myself to a small box of craftiness from Crafts U Love and will stop off on Thursday for a quick peruse of Anna-Marie's shop locally before I head to camera club. The craft shopping just makes me so happy!!! Anyway - it's about 5 weeks till our holiday and we WILL be stopping bye Joannes and Michaels for a mega mega shop where DH will just have to walk away and not comment..... or else....

less than 10 days to my photography boot camp - YAH! I can't wait, a weekend away from the madness and full immersion into photography.
