Music | Falling Slowly with Glen Hansard and Lisa Hannigan

Hi everyone. I have decided to go with something a little different for todays post.  I love music and for obvious reasons have an affinity with Irish artists the most.  I just wanted to share this video with you.  Falling Slowly is one of my favourite tunes ever and I am guilty of listening to it a few times a day every day, I love it that much. 

The song was originally written and performed by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova but this performance with Lisa Hannigan has always been my favourite. 

The song is featured in the 2007 film Once, which starred Hansard and Irglová, and for which it won the Academy Award for best original song at the the 80th Academy Awards.  I have also included the lyrics, hope you enjoy.

Personal | I’m Back


Hi guys, just a quick post to let you know I have not disappeared off the face of the Earth.  Truth be told, the digital detox probably went too well and I got a little too comfortable in my own little world.

Self Prescribed Digital Detox

digital detox

Hi fellow bloggers and followers, I hope you are all doing well and looking forward to the weekend.  With the last few weeks being particularly chaotic, I have found myself falling behind with my posts, replying to people etc and I have decided that I am in serious need of a digital detox. 

Its going to be a challenge but I think I can do it.  I have become increasingly busy with both real life and online commitments and something just has to give.  Given that I can’t really switch off from real life, I have decided I am going to switch off from my online life in the hopes that it will all still be there when I come back.

Photo Friday | A Girl Can Dream

The Mills

Hi guys, some of you may have noticed I haven’t been very active on WordPress this week.  It has been one of those weeks filled with paperwork, appointments, and just a whole load of things that all need sorting at once. 

Luckily I got time to fit in coffee and a chat with one of the school mums on Tuesday and I am meeting one of my friends tomorrow that I haven’t seen for a couple of months. It will be nice to check out of mummy duties for a couple of hours and caffeinate myself.                                                                                               Continue reading
