I was doing so well, got my blogging mojo back, was feeling organised in life, and then bam, I got hit with the flu. I’m just not pulling myself out of it after being down for the count for the last week. Which is lucky as I’m getting better just in time for an adventure!
I’m off to Dublin Friday after work for the weekend with Sarah and I’m so excited. I’ve wanted to visit Ireland all my life, and plans have just never manifested. So now after living SO CLOSE to it for 7 years, I’m off. Historically Sarah and I together always ends in disaster (especially when alcohol is involved) and this is our first trip away together so hopefully we both make it back in one piece.
Some things that have been going on this month – Pancake day! Being from America we never celebrated pancake day so any excuse to eat pancakes is good with me. I had a bunch of friends over, assigned everyone a different topping to be, and made a boat load of pancakes. My favourite will always be bacon, blueberries and maple syrup, but I’m always open to more combos.
Adam went to Switzerland for a few days on a family trip, so missed out on pancakes and was gone for Valentines day, so you can imagine my surprise when I got a bouquet of huge white roses delivered to work last Wednesday. They are still going strong on our living room table.
Lucky I was at work as I got home that night and started my stint in bed. Man, if any of you have had this horrible flu going around this season, kudos for making it out the other side. It knocked me right out. I’ve not been that sick since I was in school I’m sure. I alternated between our bed and the sofa, and the cats happily followed me about laying with me. Being sick is better with cuddly animals about for sure.
I’ve still got some posts about Budapest to share, so that’s what’s coming next. If you want to see what we get up to in Dublin, make sure you’re following me on Instagram (@chicadeedee) as I love updating my stories when I’m out and about.
