I can’t believe I haven’t posted about his yet but the end of September brought some exciting news — a group of local parents and I have been campaigning to get a new school started in the area under the Educate Together patronage. This has been a long-time effort almost two years in the making. We were very excited to hear that we’d won our bid and we recently announced that the school is going to be called “Shellybanks” which is what the locals historically called the beach near our house at Sandymount Strand. We’ve received so many positive comments about the name as it seems to conjure up a lot of positive imagery for people. More to come but you can see our campaign website here: dublin4educatetogether.ie which will soon be redirected to our new site!
This may just be the first photo I’ve posted of myself but I also don’t have many pics with my first “child”, Tilly. This sweet baby dog drives me a little crazy now and again, but mostly, she’s kept me incredibly sane for the last five years. Thanks to Jessica at Comfy Photography for taking this photo of us together!
I’m playing catch-up. Here’s the Lily Balou catalog that my mother sent me last summer. Some fantastic fabrics!
Watch this space – Karen is going to use these gorgeous Moroccan-inspired tiles in her newly renovated kitchen once she gets through planning permission and I’ve seen them firsthand. They are to die for. I can’t wait to see them and Karen promises photos of the renovation to share when the time comes.
