So yeah, I have to say turning 25 on the 3rd of May was slightly daunting, starting to feel the real pressures of adulthood…wait a minute..no I’m not! I’m still really young, don’t have THAT many responsibilities and living life to the max..so it’s all gravy!
Anyway I had a very busy weekend of celebrations and this is it:
Thurs: The Lion King Musical in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and I recieved my AMAZ present!
Yay I can be one of those cool retro kids now! hahaha I’ve been wanting a record player for AGES and the boy did good! I love it..!
Fri (and actual Day of Birth) : Din Dins with himself nomnomnom in a delished French restaurant, then we headed over to see Alt-J in the Olympia Theatre in Dublin!
Really great fun, their album Awesome Wave won the Mercury Prize in 2012, unreal for a debut album! Really interesting band, but they didn’t really interact with the crowd which is nb to any Irish audience!
Sat: I was told to be ready to leave my house at 3pm and my two besties Sara Fawsitt (who lives in Spain and I hadn’t seen her since Christmas) and Sarah Carroll arrived at my front door to whisk me into Dublin’s fair city to get merry in the sunshine!
Then we hit up a lovely BBQ for another friends birthday, the fabulous Lady Brady!
Then back into town in a taxi with some banging tunes, to catch our friends gig in Whelans, then lolled the night away, singing jungle book on the streets en route to The Workmans Club, where we saw another band and had the absolute craic!
HIGHLIGHT: We decided to stuff our faces at around 3am so to Di Fontaines we went, where the dancing continued and infact we got everyone involved! Even the chef was into it in the pizzarea! Socks being danced off while munching away on delish and suprisingly large slices of pizza!
Sun: Me and the girls went back into Dublin to enjoy the amzing sun with lovely food and drinks! Onto THE smallest bar in Dublin, Button factory, JJ’s and back to Whelans!! Finished up in Roma II of course for a bitta grub!!
Mon: DELICATE DAY in the sunshine..bbq and fam buzz: delish!
Tues: On the Ryan Tubridy Radio Show, with a very horse voice (awks!), talking bout Glenroe and Child Stars that have gone off the rails, which you can check out right here : Under ‘Child Stars – Where are they now?’
Sure Listen, it was only a fantastic few days altogether!
