Meet Lola

I have neglected this blog over Christmas and New Year, too busy eating rich food and drinking red wine. I’m still off work, not back until 9th January- yay! This week I’ve been spending some quality time with my gorgeous two year old ‘shiranian‘ (cross between a shi tzu and a pomeranian) called Lola. I thought it was about time that I introduce her. She is seriously sweet, hilariously comedic and I am convinced at times part-human. I thought I’d post a small gallery of photos because who doesn’t love a cute doggy pic?

Today we braved the storm outside and went for a short walk along an open lane near the golf course close to our home. I got completely soaked through but she had a blast in the huge puddles- the things we do for love haha. We’ve been cosying up in the house all evening now with candles lit and music on while I cooked and Lola slept. Believe it or not, I didn’t like dogs until we got Lola. Now I am a changed woman; a true dog lover.

Here’s some photos to ‘awww’ over…

The Good Wife

Alicia hearts Will?

The dark nights are descending and nothing is more relaxing than cuddling up on the sofa with a blanket and a cuppa, even better with a fire going. It’s also the time that I catch up with some of my favourite TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and my new love, The Good Wife.

I’m not a TV addict, I have a few shows that I hate to miss and since the demise of ER, Sex and the City, Friends etc, there’s only been very few that I’ve got into. One that I discovered over the summer when my hubby left me alone for a week :( was The Good Wife.

Lead actress Julianna Margulies is brilliant as Alicia Florrick in this US series. She is very understated, subtle but so present. Her supporting cast is also superb, noone trying to overshadow anyone else and a nice balance between drama and comedy.

It’s going into its third season, hopefully showing on More4 or RTE. If you’re looking for a new TV show that will absorb you in it’s relationships, the storyline, with episodic asides of court drama, then I recommend it. I don’t think I’m giving anything away by the ‘Alicia hearts Will’ tagline because I think most viewers are ‘willing’ those two to get together (sorry for the bad pun!)…I’ll keep watching with hope!
