To break up my long drive home
Last week I was working in Tralee County Kerry a stunning part of Ireland. On Friday I didn't have to work, just travel home, it's a 5 and a half hour drive back to Belfast and being pretty wrecked after a busy week, I found myself needing to stop for breaks on the journey home. Ireland's motorway networks have greatly improved in the years since I first started my job, gone are the days when you find yourself driving through the colourful towns, don't get me wrong the motorways are great but they're extremely boring! My first stop was a place called Newcastle West, I'd only been driving for about an hour at this point but it looked like the type of place that might be hiding a charity shop or two! It was an I found a great antique/second hand shop.
At this rate the journey was going to take me all day! Next stop a gorgeous place a few miles outside Limerick, Adare, I stopped to take photos of the lovely thatched cottage houses and shops and to refuel with carrot cake and coffee.
I also thrifted this gorgeous Meakin coffee pot, perfect for this time of year, it's beginning to look alot like Autumn round here. I love the leaf pattern, Autumn is my favourite season, sunny days with a chill in the air, tights and boots, leaves on the ground.
And I'm done!! I'm planning a trip to Poulty fair next weekend, if the weathers good, see what treasures are to be found! What have you been thrifting this week?
I'm off to enjoy the rest of my day off, the big lad has kindly left me a pile of ironing his exact words "If you're bored, I've a pile of ironing you can do"
Linking up with Magpie Monday
Have a lovely Monday everyone xx
