The Hen Ladies

Girls on a Hen

There is something about a hen party that I just love. Whether it’s the blatant disregard for authority or negativity, morality changes from reserved to a ‘I-don’t-give-a-toss-what-you-think, we’re having fun’ mentality or just the general atmosphere of a group of unforgiving women and one or two BBF men on the lash having the craic, they are brilliant. Here is one that we sauntereed into. I was left sexually harrassed and loved every minute of it.

Life should be like a Hen Party…the wildest, most awesome time that you remember forever via photographs and only bring it too remember the moments you want to capture. Every other memory is stored in the mind, only to be divulged and recounted to the other members of the group who also went. Laughter is guaranteed.

“If what one finds is made of pure matter, it will never spoil. And one can always come back. If what you had found was only a moment of light, like the explosion of a star, you would find nothing on your return.” The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

King Joffrey…what a nice guy

Met King Joffrey today…let me tell you something. What a lovely guy in real life, really nice and charming and grounded….still don’t trust him though. IMG_20140919_162849

Reckoners in the Lir

Went to see Reckoners in Dublin. Great show, would recommend it highly. Pictured here are the two lead actors Manus and John, the writer Ross Dungan and Trev the production manager. Great new Irish writing, set design and performances by a company destined for a big Dublin influence for many years to come. Directed by Dan Herd, set design and lighting Zia Holly and produced by Matt Smyth

It’s in The Lir for three more shows.

This my friends is the most magical place in the world. Where you leave home all set for the big Smhoke all alone in the world with nobody there to block your ambition. It is the strong rise to the top and everyone tries at least one Maidens debate in the Phil or Hist befpre realising there is far more craic to be had in the Trampoline or Ski Socities. It’s where the green light at a traffic light ball means many lost virginities and the buzz you have after realising you have four years of carnage ahead of you.

It’s also where my Dad, Tiger Paws, met the moustached mafia member and made lots of terrible decisions which they wouldn’t change for anything. This my friends is Heaven. Trinity College Freshers week…and what I wouldn’t give to go back there. Ah well, they all look like babies.

Hope all is well,

Doonbeg Golf Course

We were invited to play the lovely Doonbeg Golf Club in Co. Clare in Ireland… and what a magical spot it is. After a few photos and practice swings (whoch proved better than out on the course) we made our way our to the beautiful first tee. Set right in the heart of the west of Ireland on the Atlantic sea, Doonbeg proved to be a fierce opponent beating all but one of us.

The golf was good, up to a point, the craic was had and there was a few dubious decisions but we had a great time…and a fine meal at the end of the day to nurse our sore legs and weary hearts.

I was ok, because I’m a teddy bear so I don’t appear tired but after that sort of five hour walk, you hit the pillow and you don’t rise for at least nine hours. We were flattened, beaten by the cruel mistress that is Golfing Karma. The accommodation located by the clubhouse is mighty and the bed would fit the eight forwards on the New Zealand rugby team. Donald Trump has this place in fine order.

We absolutely love it here and would recommend it to any golf enthusiasts out there. Get out if you can. Green fees are pricey but it’s worth it in our opinion. Smash the ball, spare the rod…have a good one, TPJ x

Brendan Murphy, eagled the 13th...halved the hole

Brendan Murphy, Doonbeg professional. He eagled the 13th…and halved the hole. Thought he had the win, shook hands on the 15th. A Lovely round was had…

IMG_20140913_153914Sometimes our days are very weird indeed. They were basically playing dress up all day in Dublin and filming something and pretending to be in different places. Looked like great fun but it was very weird to look at…All in this big green room. I just watched and chilled like a teddy bear. Hope all is well, TPJ x

Impatiently waiting…

Here we have the Mr. dressed in his finest suit from his closet, with a little touch of casualness added with his vintage sneaks and cap... Maybe he's waiting for her on the bench where they first met, and she had promised him she'd come back one day.....and so he impatiently awaits... or maybe he just wanted to look extra fine when he left his house that morning possibilities are endless my dears, so imagination is key!
