Glitter and all that sparkles...

Happy December!

Working on essays for college, but I need a break. It's taking forever to finish these essays.

No pressents have been bought yet. A week ago, I used for a huge Christmas food shop to bring home. Picked up some Selection Boxes, a Selection of Crackers for yummy cheese, a box of Black Magic for Mum, Advent Calenders for my sisters and best friend, some Pringles boxes and a huge Quality Street tin! All essentials for the festive season. I bought myself a Peppa Pig Advent Calender!! Awww, I love Peppa Pig, she's cool1 :D

Of course, every year, I miss the decorating of the Christmas tree, but sure college takes over when you're always half organised. Or feeling ill. Either or.

Am amazed by the amount of people doing things for charity.
*We had Movember, but I knew no-one taking part in that to give money to. *My friend Niamh is raising money for Outreach Moldova, which helps with the orphanage out there for disabled women and girls. She has organised a "12 Swims for Christmas" which she encourages other people to join her in swims, and to donate as little or as much as you can for this brilliant charity! More info at her charity page ! and at
*#twitterxmassingle 100-140 Tweeps recorded "Wintersong" to raise money in aid of the Neonatal Unit at the National Maternity Hospital, Dublin. @BrendaDrumm started this idea, and now its 6/1 for Xmas No1! This is amazing stuff, that so many people could get together via Twitter and get this single organised for a deserving cause. Woo hoo! Go the power of good!!

So, there is a sparkle in the air. I don't have time to take the Christmas Market of Galway and the lovely decorations, but I can read it around the Facebook and Twitter feeds, and it does make me smile.

Yes, Galway is a wonderful place to visit during Christmas time as well. Well, besides the ice, that was very slippery the past few years.

The ice was lethal last year while walking thru the Christmas Market, which I LOVE!!! It's in its second year now. Feels like it was always there :)

Glad you liked the post SD and Darragh :) Smilessssssssssss!
